49ers injury news: Kyle Shanahan provides updates on Raheem Mostert, Ben Garland, Ronald Blair, others

Dec 16, 2020 at 1:07 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Wednesday and provided several injury updates. That included who he expected to miss practice or be limited during the afternoon session following his press conference.

Shanahan listed the following players as not likely to practice.


The coach listed the following players as likely to be limited.


As for Mostert, it would appear that the running back aggravated his ankle. He missed four games earlier this season due to a high-ankle sprain that landed him on injured reserve.

"It's kind of how all high-ankle sprains are," Shanahan explained. "He zinged it a couple of times in the game, which is going to happen to him a lot, but it felt just a little worse than normal. And he's not practicing today, but (with) the imaging (results), we feel pretty good that he'll be able to get there at the end of the week.

"So, I think it hurts a little bit more than usual, but the imaging was somewhat positive. We're going to take care of him today and allow him to rest, and hopefully, he'll feel a little bit better tomorrow."

Shanahan was asked if he expects to get center Ben Garland back this season. The coach wasn't very optimistic about the chances of that happening.

"I don't expect to," Shanahan responded. "I know he still has a chance. We won't rule him out, but I'm not expecting him right now."

Shanahan also discussed defensive end Ronald Blair, who isn't expected to play this season after some setbacks in his recovery from the ACL injury sustained last season. The coach was asked if the defender is on track for a 2021 return.

"I believe so," Shanahan responded. "I haven't talked to Ronnie about it in a little bit. I know there was some negative things that happened with his surgery and stuff, so Ronnie's got to get that fixed, and I'm not sure where he is exactly right now with that, but I really hope it does because Ronnie's a really good player. [He's a] guy who's helped us a ton. I know a lot of people in this league think fairly highly of him, and I know he can play football if his knee's right, and that's something I hope he has better luck with here in this offseason."

Why the 49ers drafted a running back in the third round

By Rohan Chakravarthi

With their first 2022 NFL Draft selection not coming until No. 61 overall, the San Francisco 49ers were required to remain patient without a first-round selection for the first time in the Lynch-Shanahan era due to last year's trade-up to select quarterback Trey Lance with the third overall pick. With that first selection, the 49ers took USC edge rusher Drake Jackson, who some analysts considered a fringe first-round talent, making it shocking that he was still available near the end of the second round. However, with their second selection at pick No. 93, the 49ers surprised many, drafting LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price, who not only was a player at a position of low value, but also a player projected to go potentially one or two rounds later. So, why did



Are the 49ers mending their relationship with WR Deebo Samuel?

Late Wednesday night, San Francisco 49ers fans sighed in relief as wide receiver Deebo Samuel reportedly followed the team on Instagram once again, which could be a sign that the relationship is getting back on track. Samuel, who scrubbed his account of everything 49ers related on April 7th, which was around the time of his reported trade request, was not moved during the draft as the 49ers stayed firm with their decision despite fielding multiple offers for the star receiver. Now, almost a month later, Samuel has re-followed the team, once again utilizing his power of social media to express his

The longtime host believes it's time for the 49ers to answer their doubters and go "all in" on their young quarterback.
