49ers-Packers: Trent Williams, Brandon Aiyuk, and Deebo Samuel join Kendrick Bourne on reserve/COVID-19 list

Nov 4, 2020 at 4:41 PM--


In addition to wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, the San Francisco 49ers will also be without left tackle Trent Williams and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk when they play the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. Both players will join Bourne on the reserve/COVID-19 list, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel is also being added to the reserve/COVID-19 list. Although, he was already ruled out of the game due to a hamstring injury.


Those are significant losses for the already injury-decimated and six-point underdog 49ers, who will have to face the Packers without several key players.

Also ruled out of Thursday night's game are running back Tevin Coleman (knee), linebacker Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (hamstring), quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle), and tight end George Kittle (foot).

It was revealed on Wednesday morning that Bourne had tested positive for COVID-19. The team immediately shut down its facilities, began working remotely, and started contact tracing to see who might have been exposed to Bourne.

The reserve/COVID-19 list has been created for a player who tests positive for COVID-19 or has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Clubs are not permitted to comment on a player's medical status other than referring to the roster status and may not disclose whether the player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.

Kendrick Bourne is one of several players on the San Francisco 49ers who may have played his final game with the team on Sunday, but it sounds like he'd prefer to extend his time in the Bay Area well past this season if he has any say in the matter. Bourne just finished his fourth season with the 49ers and is now slated to be an unrestricted free agent after re-signing with the team as a restricted free agent in the spring. Bourne has 132 catches for 1,693 yards and 11 touchdowns since joining the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Washington in 2017. He has also established himself over his career as one of the team's top depth options at receiver, but the 49ers have a number of key players to re-sign this offseason in addition to Bourne and a limited amount of

The San Francisco 49ers embark on an offseason filled with more questions than answers. However, the main focus of the media will be on the team's quarterback situation. Will Jimmy Garoppolo be back in 2021, or has he suited up in red and gold for the last time? The 49ers players know the situation and eagerly await to see how it is resolved. They want to see Garoppolo return and endorsed him as the team's quarterback in 2021. "We'll see," wide receiver Kendrick Bourne said when asked about the situation. "I don't know if they're talking about drafting anybody, but I believe in Jimmy, I believe in [C.J. Beathard] and [Nick Mullens]. I play with all those guys. I caught a touchdown from each one of them, so I don't really mind who's back there,
