49ers-Rams: Kyle Shanahan expects some players on the COVID-19 list to miss Sunday’s game

Nov 25, 2020 at 1:45 PM--


Today, the San Francisco 49ers activated defensive lineman Arik Armstead and center Hroniss Grasu off the reserve/COVID-19 list. Still, seven players remain on the list, putting their statuses for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams in jeopardy.

Kyle Shanahan informed reporters before today's practice that he doesn't expect Sunday's game to be postponed, as was the case for the Thanksgiving matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. The 49ers head coach feels his team has the situation under control but notes that had they played a game this past weekend, he may have felt differently.

"We've been good in our building for a number of days and stuff," Shanahan said. "It doesn't look like it's getting worse, at least in our building. So, as long as we don't get it in here, [a postponement] would surprise me.

"But it's going to make it tough to practice this week. We've got a number of guys out who probably won't be back for the game. We'll see how that goes."

Shanahan was asked to clarify that he expected at least some of the players currently sitting on the reserve/COVID-19 list to miss this weekend's game.

"Yeah, I expect there to not be guys who can play," Shanahan responded. "I'm just hoping that they can, so we'll see. I know Armstead is going to be allowed to practice tomorrow, so I know we're getting him back tomorrow fully. He was allowed to go through walkthrough today. But the other days? We've got to wait and see. I'm not counting on it, but I'm hoping."

The following 49ers players remain on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

John Lynch expects to keep Fred Warner, calls linebacker a 'big part of the fabric' of the 49ers

San Francisco 49ers fans started to get a little worried last year as the season drew closer and All-Pro tight end George Kittle still didn't have a contract extension. That all got resolved around mid-August, though. Could the 49ers be facing a similar challenge with linebacker Fred Warner, who is preparing to enter the final year of his rookie deal? Obviously, general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan would prefer to lock up their young defensive star for the foreseeable future, and they expect that to happen. That doesn't mean extending Warner will be easy. The 49ers will need to reward the linebacker financially while juggling the complexities of a shrinking salary cap. "We talk about challenges, and those challenges are there,"
