49ers-Seahawks: Jordan Reed, Tevin Coleman, K’Waun Williams ‘have a chance’ to play, says Kyle Shanahan

Oct 30, 2020 at 2:00 PM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan hopes to get at least two of his three injured reserve players whose practice windows opened this week back for Sunday's matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. They are tight end Jordan Reed, running back Tevin Coleman, and cornerback K'Waun Williams.

Two of those players are more likely to return earlier than the other.

"I know all three of them have a chance," Shanahan told reporters after Friday's practice. "I think K'Waun and Tevin more than Jordan. Today was just a walkthrough, though, so I haven't gotten a chance to talk to the trainers. I'll talk to them more today, but hopefully, there's no setbacks, and we'll get at least two of them up. But I never know until I talk to the trainers."

The 49ers have until 1 p.m. PT on Saturday to activate any of the three players if the team wants them available for Sunday. The more likely scenario for Reed is that he will try to return for San Francisco's next game — a Thursday-night matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

"He's trending in the right direction," general manager John Lynch said of Reed on Friday morning. "Not necessarily speaking towards this weekend but in general. So, we're very encouraged. As for this weekend, I just don't know. I do know that he's surprised us how good he's looked out there this week."

CB K'Waun Williams labeled as 49ers' secret weapon by Bleacher Report

K'Waun Williams is one of the best nickel cornerbacks in the NFL and a vital component of the San Francisco 49ers defense. There was some concern that he might be among several players slated to depart for other teams this offseason. However, Williams was re-signed to a one-year deal and, for the most part, San Francisco's brain trust managed to keep the team mostly intact. When healthy, Williams has proved his value. He showed that in 2019 during one of his best campaigns, posting an 80.3 overall Pro Football Focus grade during his over 700 snaps in the regular season. During the ensuring playoff run, Williams allowed just 66 receiving yards in three playoff games. Recently, Bleacher Report compiled a list of every NFL team's "secret weapon", where

Kyle Shanahan says 49ers will continue to 'be smart' with Dee Ford

Dee Ford hit the practice field with his San Francisco 49ers teammates today — the team's first practice of training camp. The veteran pass rusher didn't participate in team drills but did get some work during individual drills. Ford appeared in just one game last season before being sidelined for the remaining games due to neck and back problems. There was some concern whether or not he would even be ready for the start of the 2021 season, given the severity of the injuries. Ford reportedly looked good in today's limited work. However, the 49ers will remain cautious with his progression. "I've seen the history, and we've got to be smart with it," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after practice. "It's been a tough situation for him and

Kyle Juszczyk: Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel's vision makes the 49ers dangerous

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...
