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."

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR this morning and provided several injury updates. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has practiced this week — albeit limited. He is returning from a calf injury that forced him to miss the second half of Week 4 and all of Week 5. "Jimmy's doing really well," Lynch said on the Murph & Mac show. "He's done a great job coming back from that calf contusion that he got versus Seattle. And he did a nice job of rehab, and he stuck around the bye week, as did Trey because they were both hurting." Trey Lance, the 49ers' No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, started in place of Garoppolo during Week 5 and emerged with a knee sprain. He has not practiced this week and is not expected to suit up

This week, the 49ers opened the practice window for running back JaMycal Hasty, who could be activated off injured reserve in time for this weekend's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Cornerback K'Waun Williams is practicing after missing the last two games due to a calf injury. "It's nice to get Hasty back this week," head coach Kyle Shanahan said on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "He helped us out a lot in those first two games with doing some third-down routes and things like that, and running the ball. "So, getting Hasty back should help

Kyle Shanahan provided several injury updates the day after the San Francisco 49ers lost 30-18 to the Indianapolis Colts. The good news is that cornerback Emmanuel Moseley (back) arrived at the team facility today feeling good and doing well. Shanahan said the 49ers will be without safety Jaquiski for a few weeks. He sustained a bone bruise in his knee. That explains why San Francisco signed safety Tony Jefferson to the practice squad today. Defensive end Dee Ford and linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair are both in the concussion protocol. Quarterback Trey Lance is expected to return to practice on Wednesday. However, he will likely be limited.
