49ers-Seahawks: Shanahan says Coleman, Reed, Williams have ‘a chance’ to play but Packers game more likely

Oct 28, 2020 at 1:41 PM--


San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman, tight end Jordan Reed, and cornerback K'Waun Williams will get some work during practices this week. They each remain on injured reserve but are eligible to return, and the team opened their practice windows on Wednesday.

Could they be ready to go on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks? Head coach Kyle Shanahan says there is a chance, but the 49ers' Week 9 matchup against the Green Bay Packers on a Thursday night might be more likely.

"I think all three of those guys have a chance this week," Shanahan told reporters on Wednesday, "but they're not going to be going (in practice) today. I know Tevin will get a little bit today but not very much.

"We'll see at the end of the week with them. I'm hoping more for the Green Bay game, but I'm still holding out hope for this week."

The initial estimate on Reed's recovery was six to eight weeks. It has been less than five weeks since the tight end suffered an MCL sprain against the New York Giants.

Coleman is returning from a knee injury, and the 49ers could certainly use the help at running back. The team will be without Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) for a while, leaving just Jerick McKinnon, JaMycal Hasty, and, if needed, practice squader Austin Walter.

49ers-Rams: Kyle Shanahan says there's an 'outside chance' Trent Williams could play

It's been an interesting last couple of weeks for the San Francisco 49ers. Defensive lineman Arik Armstead landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list the day after the team's Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Eight others joined him after that. Armstead, along with center Hroniss Grasu and rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, has since been removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list. That still leaves the following six 49ers players unavailable, though. WR Brandon Aiyuk TE Daniel Helm DT D.J. Jones LB Joe Walker T Trent Williams DE Jordan Willis Head coach Kyle Shanahan hasn't completely given up hope that others could be activated before Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan on Nick Mullens: 'He gives us a chance to win, but we've got to play better around him'

Quarterback Nick Mullens hasn't been thrown into the best situation. He has taken over an injury-ravaged San Francisco 49ers roster that is just now starting to get some of its key players back. Yet, it remains far from full-strength. With Jimmy Garoppolo sidelined with a high-ankle sprain until at least Week 15, it's Mullens at the helm of the 49ers offense for now. He has completed 67.3 percent of his passes for 1,390 yards with six touchdowns through six games and four starts this season. The quarterback has also thrown six interceptions and posted a passer rating of over 90.0 just twice. Head coach Kyle Shanahan can't deny that Mullens has been up and down this season. Not all of it is his fault, though. The quarterback has been dealt a difficult hand. In one

Deebo Samuel, Trent Williams, Richard Sherman cleared to play vs. Rams but 49ers will be cautious

The San Francisco 49ers are starting to see some players returning, which will help during this final stretch of games to close out a bizarre 2020 season. The team hopes to go on a run and overcome an uphill battle for a playoff spot. Head coach Kyle Shanahan received some good news on Saturday as offensive tackle Trent Williams was cleared to return to the active roster from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Williams had been on the list since November 20, after testing positive for the virus. The offensive lineman is a cancer survivor, which increases his risk while battling COVID-19. While Williams is cleared to play on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, the situation is unique given how the virus's lasting impact tends to be different from person to
