49ers lose Justin Skule to torn ACL, Tarvarius Moore to torn Achilles

Jun 8, 2021 at 8:41 AM--


Two San Francisco 49ers players suffered serious injuries this week. According to multiple reports, offensive lineman Justin Skule suffered a torn ACL, ending his season. It looks like safety Tarvarius Moore is done too. He suffered a torn Achilles. Although, there is some hope that the defender might be able to return late in the season.

Both injuries occurred during Monday's practice. The 49ers are in their third and final week of organized team activities. The team will hold a mandatory three-day minicamp next week.


With Trent Williams absent, Skule had been starting in practice. He looked to be the 49ers' top backup to Williams and Mike McGlinchey during the upcoming season.

Shon Coleman could become the top candidate to replace Skule. Coleman opted out of last season due to COVID concerns after missing the 2019 season due to a broken fibula and ankle injury. He has not appeared in a regular-season game since the 49ers traded for him on August 31, 2018.

"He's been here a lot this offseason, and he's really looking good, just out in workouts, which we'll see once we get on the field," general manager John Lynch said of Coleman in May. "But Shon's doing a nice job. We're pleased with that."

Moore had been starting in place of Jaquiski Tartt, who is dealing with a toe injury. San Francisco signed veteran safety Tony Jefferson on Monday.

The 49ers had already lost backup running back Jeff Wilson Jr. to what has been described as a "substantial" torn meniscus. He may not return until November.

Players will hit the practice field again today at noon, with offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel and select players scheduled to speak with reporters after the session.

San Francisco made Skule a sixth-round draft pick out of Vanderbilt in 2019. He has appeared in 31 games with 12 starts in his two seasons. The 49ers made Moore a third-round pick out of Southern Miss in 2018. He has appeared in all 48 games over the past three seasons, starting 13.

On Tuesday, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch informed reporters that running back Jeff Wilson Jr. and safety Tarvarius Moore are being placed on the active/physical-unable-to-perform (PUP) list as the team prepares to kick off training camp.

"[Players are] going through physicals today, and if there are any additions, Kyle (Shanahan) will hit you up in the coming days," Lynch said. "But that's where we are right now." Lynch and Shanahan were asked if there were any other potential candidates that they knew of. "A couple of guys that you know had some things that we'll see on their physicals, if

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.
