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.

Jimmy Garoppolo's ankle was 'an inch away from just snapping' last season, says 49ers' Trent Williams

Jimmy Garoppolo struggled to stay on the field last season, missing 10 total games as the San Francisco 49ers struggled to six wins. Trent Williams was among several players to speak to reporters today as the team reported to training camp. The offensive lineman revealed that Garoppolo's situation could have ended up being much worse. "A lot of people didn't know his ankle was damn near less than an inch away from just snapping," Williams told reporters. "Just watching him even fight through and try to play — a guy who has accomplished so much, got a lot of money, went to a Super Bowl — he didn't have to press forward like he tried to and tried to play hurt. The guys respect that." Garoppolo suffered his first injury — initially reported as a



Trent Williams on board with 49ers adding QB Trey Lance, doesn't think there will be a QB controversy

49ers offensive tackle Trent Williams has been around the NFL for over a decade, which means he fully understands just how harsh of a business the league can be. For that reason, Williams has no problem with the 49ers' decision to add rookie quarterback Trey Lance even though they already have a proven veteran in Jimmy Garoppolo, and he doesn't seem to think there will be any controversy as a result. Garoppolo led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2019 and carries a 22-8 overall record since joining the team in 2017. But he's also missed the bulk of two seasons due to injuries, has a contract with a hefty amount of non-guaranteed money over the next two seasons, and doesn't have the

Today, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler wrapped up his rankings of NFL players by position group. He capped off the series by ranking the league's top tight ends. Fowler's list is based on input from around the NFL. He surveyed over 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players to compile it. "The objective is to identify the best players right now for 2021," wrote Fowler. "This is not a five-year projection or an achievement award. Who's the best today? Pretty simple." The San Francisco 49ers made George Kittle a fifth-round draft pick out of Iowa in 2017, and he has emerged as arguably the league's
