49ers-Saints Injury Report: Richard Sherman returns; Raheem Mostert, others already ruled out for Sunday

Nov 11, 2020 at 4:10 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 10 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The 49ers opened the practice window for Richard Sherman, and the veteran cornerback took part in his first practice since before Week 1. He has been attempting to return from a calf injury.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan is hopeful to have Sherman back for San Francisco's Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

"I know Doctor Sherm thinks he's got a chance this week," Shanahan added. "And I've been around him enough that that's why I don't count him out on that. But my goal is hopefully to get him back by the Rams. But I won't rule him out for anything because of what his prognosis is."


Of course, Sherman is not listed on the practice participation report below because he has not yet been activated off of injured reserve. The 49ers are not required to reveal how much he participated.

Running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) have already been ruled out for Sunday. As has linebacker Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (hamstring). Mostert remains on injured reserve.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) did not practice and will be re-evaluated on Thursday. Cornerback K'Waun Williams will be out "for a while" with a high-ankle sprain. Should he land on injured reserve for the second time this season, he won't be able to return.

Wide receiver Kendrick Bourne remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Although, Shanahan did say on Wednesday that Bourne has already tested negative once since landing on the list for the second time in a week.

"I'm not allowed to talk about it, but it's what you've heard," Shanahan said. "I mean, positive, negative, negative, positive, negative. I think everyone, those things happen, I guess, and we're all just dealing with it. I know it's a weird situation with him."

Below are Wednesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Saints, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

Cornerback Richard Sherman remains available. The free agent doesn't know what his NFL future holds, has had teams reach out to him, and hasn't even ruled out a possible return to the San Francisco 49ers. "Obviously, a return to San Francisco isn't out of the cards," Sherman told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. "I've had conversations with Seattle. I've had conversations with the Saints, the Raiders, and we've just got to wait to see how things play out." Things are on pause until the draft is complete. Sherman doesn't expect to see the interest increase until after that, as NFL teams look to add younger defenders on rookie contracts. The 49ers could select a cornerback on Day 2 of

Jimmy Garoppolo's days with the San Francisco 49ers may be numbered. He will likely remain with the team through the 2021 season. However, after drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick, it is clear that a change is on the horizon for the Niners. While most felt that might create an awkward situation in the quarterback room, Garoppolo has made the best of it. In fact, Garoppolo was the first 49ers player who reached out to Lance after the incoming rookie heard his name called in Cleveland, Ohio. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke to the media on Friday night after the team was done making its Day 2 picks. They were asked if they spoke with Garoppolo after selecting Lance. Obviously, the quarterback knew the

Richard Sherman indicated on Friday that he hasn't ruled out a potential return to the San Francisco 49ers, the team with which he spent the last three seasons. The veteran cornerback remains a free agent and doesn't expect his market to heat up until after the draft. One player who would love to see Sherman back in the Bay Area is former Michigan cornerback Ambry Thomas. That's because the incoming rookie got a call from the 49ers on Friday, learning that the team was making him a third-round pick. After being drafted, Thomas was asked about Sherman, and the inquiring reporter couldn't even finish her question before the excited defender interrupted with his
