49ers DB Tarvarius Moore says his Achilles surgery was a success

Jun 11, 2021 at 7:36 AM--

Tarvarius Moore took to social media Thursday night to announce that the surgery he underwent for his recent Achilles injury was a success.

Moore sustained the injury at practice on Monday, June 7. He was one of two 49ers players to suffer a serious injury during the Monday practice, along with offensive lineman Justin Skule (torn ACL). According to 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, Moore's injury was of the non-contact variety and took place with no other players in the vicinity.

"T-Moore hurt his Achilles on air. No one was by him, he backpedaled and he went to go break forward and it just gave out," Shanahan told reporters Wednesday.

Here's what Moore posted on Instagram regarding his surgery.

Moore is in his fourth season with the 49ers after being selected in Round 3 of the 2018 NFL Draft out of Southern Miss. He had yet to miss an NFL game before suffering his Achilles injury and totaled 100 tackles, six passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery with 13 career starts. Eight of those starts came during the 2020 season.

The 49ers now head towards training camp with a safety roster of Jimmie Ward, Jaquiski Tartt, Tavon Wilson, Tony Jefferson, Marcell Harris, Jared Mayden, Kai Nacua, and rookie Talanoa Hufanga. The recent injuries to Moore, Skule, and running back Jeff Wilson (knee) are the latest in what seems like a never-ending run of bad luck for the 49ers on the health front, but Shanahan doesn't plan on changing things too much in the near future just because of what happened over the past several days.

"We're always re-evaluating things and doing things like I'd say, you know, we change every year a little bit," Shanahan said Wednesday. "We always learn from stuff. But to sit and say we're going to do training camp differently because someone got hurt getting out of chair (Wilson), because someone got hurt on air and a person hurt his knee playing football would be pretty irresponsible of me and extremely reactionary. I just try to do what's right for guys and provide them football and we try to do it the safest way possible."

All-Pro Trent Williams discusses his role on the 49ers and the success of Deebo Samuel

Fresh off a regular season in which Trent Williams—the highest-paid offensive tackle in the NFL—put up the highest single-season PFF grade ever, and made the NFL's All-Pro team, it's obvious the San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle is playing the best football of his career, which is impressive because the 11-year veteran has always been an elite offensive lineman throughout his career, making nine Pro Bowl teams. However, from the time he joined the 49ers, Williams has taken on a larger role than just being a star left tackle. During his time with the Washington Football Team, Williams was tagged as an independent player who didn't demonstrate many leadership qualities, which may have led to his eventual unstable departure after the 2019 NFL season. Now, Williams

Kyle Shanahan explains his unwavering trust in Jimmy Garoppolo, says 49ers are 'battle-tested'

Jimmy Garoppolo makes his mistakes. That hasn't deterred head coach Kyle Shanahan from sticking with him, though. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback delivered a gutsy performance in the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams, playing through a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. The Week 18 win set up a playoff matchup against an old rival—the Dallas Cowboys. The 49ers went into AT&T Stadium and emerged with a 23-17 victory, which was anything but pretty. A playoff win is a playoff win, though, and the Niners will move on to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers. Garoppolo finished the game 16-of-25 passing for a pedestrian 172 yards and a rather ugly interception. But he did so while enduring the pain of throwing. That

49ers' Deebo Samuel says his injury isn't significant

As usual, Deebo Samuel played a significant role in San Francisco's offense during their hard-fought 13-10 win against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, during a game where special teams dictated the flow surprisingly. Following the game, Samuel said that he understood the difficulties coming into this game with the weather situation, and how crucial special teams was to San Francisco's victory. "Man, it's just so crazy," Samuel exclaimed. "We knew we needed a play, and we talked about special teams man. Very important this week in this week, you know, you can't really kick the ball, so we went out here and got a blocked punt and we scored and tied the game. Man, it's just crazy right now." Despite the first half struggles, in which San
