‘I’m perfectly fine’: Jeff Wilson provides an update on his hamstring; Other 49ers injury updates

Dec 20, 2020 at 2:37 PM--

There was some concern that Jeff Wilson Jr. may have suffered an injury after he was seen favoring his hamstring on the sideline during Sunday's 41-33 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The San Francisco 49ers running back assured reporters after the game that he is OK.

"No, I'm fine," Wilson said. "I'm perfectly fine. No problems."

The running back missed several games earlier this season due to a high-ankle sprain.

While Wilson is fine, the 49ers didn't emerge from the loss unscathed. Head coach Kyle Shanahan provided the following injury updates:

  • Safety Jimmie Ward suffered a concussion and did not return to the game.
  • Defensive end Dion Jordan injured his knee and did not return.
  • Running back Raheem Mostert re-aggravated his ankle and did not return.
  • Safety Tarvarius Moore suffered a knee injury and did not return.
  • Wide receiver Richie James sustained an ankle injury and did not return.
  • Quarterback Nick Mullens exited with an elbow injury and did not return.

After the game, Mullens was asked about the status of his elbow and if he felt it might impact his availability for next weekend's game against the Cardinals.

"We'll see in the morning," the quarterback responded.

Added Mullens: "I was throwing the football, and they hit my hand, and I jammed my elbow a little bit. So, I figured it was best for the team for somebody who could throw the football to get in the game."

Shanahan also confirmed that tackle Mike McGlinchey briefly exited between two series after having the wind knocked out of him. It doesn't sound like it was anything more serious.

BYU QB Zach Wilson on 49ers: 'I think I'd fit in well there'

The San Francisco 49ers own the No. 12 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. That probably won't be high enough to select BYU quarterback Zach Wilson, who this past season completed 73.4 percent of his passes for 3,699 yards with 33 touchdowns and just three interceptions through 12 games with the Cougars. However, some speculate that the 49ers might move up to grab a quarterback if interested in one of the top passers available. Wilson apparently feels like the 49ers would be a good fit for him. The quarterback appeared on BYU TV and was asked which NFL system he felt might be best suited for him. "Yeah, I haven't watched a ton of specifics with NFL teams as far as what offenses they're running," Wilson responded. "One, just off the top of my head, is the 49ers,

Steve Young cautions 49ers on moving on from Jimmy Garoppolo, evaluates BYU's Zach Wilson

Steve Young knows about regret. The Hall of Fame quarterback joined KNBR on Wednesday and shared the story of the San Francisco 49ers allowing running back Ricky Watters to depart after the team's championship run that ended with a Super Bowl victory during the 1994 season. Watters was seen as a bit of a distraction and someone who didn't quite fit into the locker room mentality that was built. In hindsight, Young also feels the 49ers never recovered from Watters' departure. At least, not until Garrison Hearst's arrival three years later. Who knows how many more Super Bowl rings Young could have earned had Watters stuck around. Young used that story as an analogy for the 49ers' current quarterback conundrum. They have a franchise quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo,
