49ers-Saints: First-round pick Javon Kinlaw gets his first NFL sack

Nov 15, 2020 at 3:34 PM--


Ten games into the 2020 season, San Francisco 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw finally has his first sack. He brought down quarterback Taysom Hill in the third quarter of the team's road game against the New Orleans Saints, forcing a punt.


The heavily-favored Saints still lead the 49ers 17-10.

While Kinlaw is probably excited about his first NFL sack, he probably wants the win more than anything else.

"I'm not really worried about sacking the QB," Kinlaw said last month. "I'm just worried about just getting a win, honestly. All that stuff comes a part of playing D-line, and trying to get the quarterback, and things like that. But the main thing is to win."

Here is how a couple of Kinlaw's sidelined teammates reacted to the defender's first career sack.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan says Jimmy Garoppolo had his 'best spring,' discusses Trey Lance's progress

Jimmy Garoppolo is trying to fend off anyone from overtaking him on the depth chart — specifically, the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance. It sounds like he put in a solid effort during organized team activities, which ended today. The veteran quarterback will look to continue impressing his coaches in training camp at the end of July. Garoppolo is slated to be the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback when the team kicks off against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on September 12. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today and expressed how pleased he is with Garoppolo's performance during the offseason program. "I think Jimmy had his best spring



Kyle Shanahan confirms Nick Bosa rejoined his 49ers teammates this week

Pass rusher Nick Bosa rejoined his San Francisco 49ers teammates this week. He had been rehabbing and training in Florida with his brother, Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers. Joey typically passes on attending his own team's organized team activities (OTAs). Nick Bosa was never going to hit the practice field with his teammates, but the plan was always to have him around for these two weeks — the last week of OTAs and next week's three-day minicamp. "Yeah, I mean, he can't take part in much because he's still rehabbing too," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters this afternoon, "but he's been here all week, and yeah, he's been good. But he came for a shorter visit than expected." That's because Shanahan canceled the remainder of the



Kyle Shanahan keeping his 'fingers crossed' that Dee Ford can return to the 49ers

One of the blink-and-you-missed-it comments from San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan yesterday involved an update on veteran pass rusher Dee Ford. The defender has not played since September 13, 2020, the week before the team lost Nick Bosa to a season-ending injury. While Ford dealt with neck and back injuries, there was always hope that he might return at some point during the season. That never happened, and Ford did not play another snap after his 46 on defense in Week 1. When Ford has been on the field, he has proven to be disruptive. However, the pass rusher has appeared in just 12 games since the 49ers traded for him in 2019. He was supposed to be one of the answers to San Francisco's pass-rushing woes. The team later drafted Bosa to complement
