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."

Jimmy Garoppolo is trying to fend off anyone from overtaking him on the depth chart — specifically, the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance. It sounds like he put in a solid effort during organized team activities, which ended today. The veteran quarterback will look to continue impressing his coaches in training camp at the end of July. Garoppolo is slated to be the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback when the team kicks off against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on September 12. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today and expressed how pleased he is with Garoppolo's performance during the offseason program. "I think Jimmy had his best spring

Window is open for Trey Lance to win 49ers QB job, but it won't be easy, says Shanahan

Trey Lance won't be automatically relegated to a backup role at quarterback this season just because he's a rookie, but he'll have his work cut out for him if he wants to prove he should be the starter over Jimmy Garoppolo. The widespread assumption is that the veteran Garoppolo will start for the 49ers this season while the first-round pick Lance learns from the sidelines. But 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan won't be approaching the situation from that perspective once training camp gets underway in late July, at least not initially. Shanahan spoke about that and a number of other topics during a conversation with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on the most recent episode of Kawakami's TK Show
