Injured reserve not being considered yet for 49ers DT Javon Kinlaw, says Kyle Shanahan

Sep 10, 2021 at 2:11 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after today's practice and provided an update on Javon Kinlaw. The second-year defensive tackle has been dealing with a setback in his knee, an injury that occurred on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys and forced him to miss the last two games of the season.

Kinlaw was officially listed as "doubtful" for Sunday on the team's injury report. With the knee issues continuing to resurface, Shanahan was asked if injured reserve is a possibility for the defensive tackle.

"Not yet," the coach responded. "I mean, he's still got a chance to play this week, so we're still trying to decide that. So, not yet."

General manager John Lynch didn't sound too optimistic about Kinlaw's potential availability for Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.

"You know, it's kind of a deal where we've been able to quiet it down at times," Lynch said on KNBR this morning. "And other times, it gets flared up. He was doing really well throughout the offseason, and it kind of flared up on him again at some point a couple of weeks ago. We tried to quiet it down, but it's not working real well right now."

The 49ers will reassess the health of their players on Saturday after traveling to Detroit to determine if any roster moves, like practice squad elevations, are necessary before the game.

San Francisco 49ers left tackle Trent Williams returned to the practice field this afternoon. He's been dealing with a shoulder injury sustained during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

The door hasn't completely shut on the possibility of Jimmy Garoppolo being the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. The veteran quarterback hasn't practiced this week after sustaining a calf injury during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Things appear to be trending in the direction of rookie Trey Lance making his first career NFL start. Garoppolo hasn't given up hope of playing, though. He may be on the practice field on Friday, the team's final practice of the week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR this afternoon. The only player he was willing to rule out for the weekend is cornerback K'Waun Williams, who isn't expected to return until after the bye week. "Jimmy told me he wants to give it a
