49ers rookie Javon Kinlaw joins Arik Armstead on the reserve/COVID-19 list

Nov 18, 2020 at 2:16 PM--


Along with officially announcing that former Atlanta Falcons defensive end Takkarist McKinley was claimed off waivers, the San Francisco 49ers announced that rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw is joining defensive lineman Arik Armstead on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

On Monday, the 49ers placed Armstead on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Kinlaw becomes the ninth 49ers player to land on the list.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters on Tuesday that others were expected to join Armstead on the reserve/COVID-19 list. It is possible that others will join Armstead and Kinlaw, as the former was near teammates for Sunday's road game against the New Orleans Saints and for the trip back to the Bay Area.

"He did have some close contacts," Shanahan said. "When we get them all, they'll be on the list, so you'll see that."

49ers coaches and players have been working remotely this week, aside from reporting to the facility for daily COVID-19 testing.

"I just told the guys not to come in," Shanahan continued. "We were going to get together today and watch all of what happened on Sunday, and kind of put that game to rest. Now, we're just doing that all Zoom-wise. Then, each coach, each position is going to finish it up before we see them in person on Friday because we'll just meet them on the field on Friday."

Below is a breakdown of the previous 49ers players who have landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.


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.

NFL restructures offseason programs amid COVID concerns from players

The NFL's offseason program was scheduled to begin on Monday. Players from several teams came together and opted out of the voluntary portions of Phase 1, deciding to forgo in-person workouts due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. San Francisco 49ers players had not yet made a similar statement. The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) has been pushing for an alteration to the offseason schedule, hoping for no in-person activities until training camp in July, as was the case last offseason. However, the NFL has been pushing for in-person activities to begin after just two weeks of virtual sessions. On Wednesday, the league announced a restructure to the offseason programs. Now, there will be no on-field work until May 17. That will be restricted to no-contact drills,

Justin Wong just released his latest Mock Draft Roundup. The overwhelming favorite projection for the San Francisco 49ers at the No. 3 overall pick is the selection of quarterback Mac Jones of Alabama. Add NFL Network's Peter Schrager to the list of those following that narrative. The Good Morning Football host released his own mock draft on Thursday morning, and like most others, it has Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Zach Wilson of BYU coming off the board with the top two selections. Those predictions seem like



My case for the 49ers to draft Justin Fields

By Tim Sprinkles
Apr 5, 2021

When the San Francisco 49ers were drafting at No. 12, there was a lot of speculation about which quarterback might fall and who that might be. The only quarterback who seemed to have a chance to fall to twelve was Mac Jones. However, the 49ers aren't selecting at twelve anymore because they took a huge swing and traded three first rounds picks to move up to pick at No. 3. This means there will likely be three of the consensus top-five quarterback prospects still on the board. This is my case for Justin Fields. Fields is a unique specimen at the quarterback position. Everyone on Twitter wants to pigeonhole Fields into a "type" of quarterback and what he could become in Shanahan's offense. Some say he's a runner who can also throw. Others say he's a slow
