49ers’ Kyle Shanahan provides updates on Nick Bosa, Dee Ford, Jalen Hurd, talks Fred Warner’s contract

May 25, 2021 at 2:13 PM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke at length with reporters after Tuesday's practice. The team kicked off organized team activities this week. The coach provided several updates on rehabbing players.

First, there was defensive end Nick Bosa, who was among those noticeably absent from practice. Shanahan shared that Bosa remains in Florida, training there. The team felt it best if he remained there during this portion of his rehabilitation. Bosa is still working his way back from the torn ACL suffered during Week 2 last season.

"He came out in February for a while to get checked up on his knee and stuff," Shanahan said. "And with him coming off the ACL and everything, it's going great. I'm sure you guys have seen some videos. But he's got a good setup out there with his brother (Joey Bosa of the Las Angeles Chargers) and the guy who works with his knee. They're in contact with our guys all the time.

"I just didn't want to take him off his routine right now. I totally agree with him (being) out there. He's going to show up at some time during this but he won't be going out there, doing anything coming off the ACL. But we fully expect him to be ready for training camp."

Dee Ford missed all but one game last season due to neck and back injuries. The 49ers coach provided an update on the veteran pass rusher, as well.

"Dee Ford's been here since February," Shanahan said. "He's been throughout this whole offseason, all the rehab, really made a lot of strides in this offseason together. Everyone knows the sensitivity of his injury with his back and stuff but he's been putting a lot of work here, and we feel it's going the right direction."

The 49ers sent Ford home last week because of how long he had been working at the facility. So he is not around this week.

Shanahan added: "I plan on him coming back here in the next couple of weeks. But don't expect to see him until training camp, on the field."

Jalen Hurd, a third-round pick in 2019, has yet to appear in a regular-season game. The wide receiver suffered an ACL injury during last year's training camp.

"It's been great to have Jalen back," Shanahan said. "He came back right when Phase Two started, and he's done a good job in his ACL rehab. He should be ready to go by camp, so hopefully, there's no setbacks and stuff like that. Right now, he's just working out with [head strength and conditioning coach Dustin Perry] on the side, and making sure he continues to rehab, and gets ready for his time, which will be training camp."

Shanahan also discussed linebacker Fred Warner, who isn't among those rehabbing or anything but is due a contract extension. The third-round draft pick in 2018 is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

"I kind of feel the same about him as I did about (George) Kittle when we were talking about it," Shanahan said. "I just see that kind of as a matter of time. I mean, I know he's not going into his free-agent year or anything like that, so that's why it's not always on my mind.

"But Fred's a guy that I plan on being here forever, and who has earned that. And I'd be surprised if that doesn't start sooner than later."

Sunday will be a bit of a homecoming for defensive tackle DeForest Buckner. It will be the first time the defensive tackle has returned to Levi's Stadium since the San Francisco 49ers traded him to the Indianapolis Colts last year. "I know it's going to feel weird once I get to the stadium, and get to the opponent's locker room, and little things like that," Buckner told reporters via a conference call this morning.

The San Francisco 49ers are getting healthier. Kind of. There are still several missing pieces, like All-Pro tight end George Kittle. But some other pieces are scheduled to return soon. 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

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
