Kyle Shanahan hopes to have Raheem Mostert, Deebo Samuel, others back for 49ers-Rams

Nov 17, 2020 at 4:52 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers placed running back JaMycal Hasty (broken collarbone) and safety Johnathan Cyprien (hamstring) on injured reserve today. The team also placed safety Jared Mayden on the practice squad injured reserve list due to a quad strain.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via Zoom this afternoon and provided several additional injury updates on players who did not play on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

The 49ers hope to get the following players back in time for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, giving San Francisco a boost down the stretch:


The following player has an outside chance to return for the Rams game, but the week after is more likely:

  • LB Mark Nzeocha (on IR, quad)
  • RB Jeff Wilson (on IR, ankle)

The following player is expected to miss more time:


The coach also discussed the impact of getting back players like Samuel and Sherman.

"Just those two guys, it's a huge boost," Shanahan told reporters. "Getting guys who you depend on, who've done a lot for us, I think you guys can see how Deebo's been in just the games he's played this year. How Sherm's been, just even when he came out to practice, the boost he gives.

"I also want to say, which I echoed to the guys today too, that we're not going to win just because these guys are coming back. These guys haven't played football in a while and usually when they do come back, it takes them a week or so to get into it and to really affect a game. We're going to win based off of whether the guys that we have get better or worse.

"I think we've got some guys giving everything, but I still think guys can take it to another level. ... Getting Deebo back, getting Raheem back, Sherm, that stuff is going to help big. That's some juice we need, but we also don't have much room for error with where our record is right now. So, I can't count on those guys just to come in and change everything."

Beat writer wonders if offseason additions could tempt 49ers to trade Raheem Mostert

The San Francisco 49ers should feel good about their running back depth. On their latest 49ers Talk podcast, Matt Maiocco and Laura Britt of NBC Sports Bay Area took a look at the team's offseason veteran additions and departures. When they landed at the running back group, Maiocco wondered if there is too much depth. Obviously, there is the argument that there is no such thing as too much depth. For example, the 49ers have to feel better about their quarterback position with high-potential rookie Trey Lance likely to open the season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. That's a better backup situation than the team had in recent years. At running back, San Francisco didn't just add veteran Wayne Gallman, who may be a severely underrated signing.

Kyle Juszczyk: Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel's vision makes the 49ers dangerous

By David Bonilla
Jul 21, 2021

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...
