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.

Brandon Aiyuk: 'Enforcer' Deebo Samuel brings different energy to 49ers practice; Charvarius Ward a 'strong, physical corner'

Brandon Aiyuk spoke to reporters after Sunday's practice. The wide receiver is having a tremendous training camp in his third offseason with the San Francisco 49ers. Veteran safety Jimmie Ward has noticed a difference in the 24-year-old wideout, saying Aiyuk is one of this year's training camp standouts. That's high praise, considering the receiver's position a year ago. Aiyuk appeared to be a training camp disappointment last offseason, seemingly landing in head coach Kyle Shanahan's dog house and being limited to one catch for six yards in the 49ers' first two games. However, as the season progressed, the receiver turned things around and looks to be on course for a breakout

The San Francisco 49ers expect things to be different with Trey Lance under center. The second-year quarterback takes the reins from Jimmy Garoppolo, who the team still hopes to trade. While Lance is inexperienced, many believe he has a high ceiling and can be the type of dual-threat player that gives opposing defenses headaches. "He's giving everybody confidence," tackle Trent Williams told NFL Network's Steve Mariucci and Michael Yam after Tuesday's practice. "He's giving everybody confidence in his ability and his poise, the way he commands the huddle. I say all the time that I'm impressed that he [doesn't] make the same mistake twice, and I think, from a young quarterback, that's all you can ask for because they're going to make mistakes, and that's part of the learning

Trent Williams spoke with reporters after Monday's training camp practice. With his San Francisco 49ers teammate, Deebo Samuel, having recently signed a massive contract extension, the conversation naturally included questions about the star wide receiver. Before practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan praised Samuel's influence on the team. "My favorite thing about Deebo is how much he inspires people," Shanahan told reporters. "And he inspires me more than almost any player I've watched on the field, the way he runs the ball, whether you're handing it to him, whether you're throwing it to him, whether he's catching it on a kick. And these aren't things you

"I'm in a whole other place [compared to last season]," quarterback Trey Lance said on KNBR after Friday's practice. "I can't even imagine going back to last year. But yeah, everything has definitely slowed down." Lance isn't the only San Francisco 49ers player who has made mental leaps this offseason. Brandon Aiyuk has draw consistent praise from his teammates, with many saying the third-year wideout is having an amazing training camp. Aiyuk also joined KNBR on Friday. He was asked to discuss his progress compared to last year. "Last year was my first real training camp (COVID limited things in 2020)," Aiyuk shared, "so being able to
