49ers-Lions: Emmanuel Moseley and Javon Kinlaw not expected to play

Sep 12, 2021 at 7:55 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers could be without two defensive starters when they take the field in a couple of hours against the Detroit Lions. Neither cornerback Emmanuel Moseley nor defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw is expected to play. According to Matt Barrows of The Athletic, both are undergoing some pre-game rehab leading to kickoff. Still, Week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles remains a possibility for the two defenders.


Moseley and Kinlaw were listed as "doubtful" on the team's official injury report issued on Friday. They are both dealing with knee injuries. Moseley's occurred during practice on September 2.


"It's like a getaway practice where we're off for the weekend after that, and he just got tripped up, fallen on," general manager John Lynch said this past week of Moseley's injury. "And so, he's got a little bit of an issue. He's working through [it]. We'll see for this weekend, but I think after that, it's looking good."

On Saturday, the 49ers activated cornerback Dontae Johnson from the practice squad.

Kinlaw's issue originated from the team's game against the Dallas Cowboys last season. The defender missed the final two games of the season because of the injury.


"You know, it's kind of a deal where we've been able to quiet it down at times," Lynch said. "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 release their list of inactive players in about 30 minutes. Moseley and Kinlaw will most likely be among those names.

The San Francisco 49ers have been trying to manage defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw's knee injury, but some extended rest might be necessary for the second-year player. Today, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Kinlaw is a candidate to land on injured reserve, which would force him to miss a minimum of three games. "Yes, definitely [have to consider injured reserve]," Shanahan said. "Yeah, it's something we're worried about and concerned about, something we'll probably decide here in the next week." What are the 49ers' options with the interior of the defensive line without Kinlaw? "We've got [Kentavius] Street, we've got D.J. Jones, we've got Zach Kerr," Shanahan responded. "And we've got guys on [the] practice squad with [Darrion] Daniels and stuff,



'It's a big concern this year': 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan discusses Javon Kinlaw's injury, development setback

Some fans are a bit too quick to write off defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, feeling that he is yet another first-round misstep by the San Francisco 49ers. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan still believes in him and feels the defender's injury setbacks can still be overcome. Kinlaw entered the draft as a raw but physically gifted prospect that could develop into a force along the defensive line. That development has been stalled as the 49ers do what they can to manage the second-year player's injury. Kinlaw sustained a knee injury on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys, forcing him to miss the season's final two games. He underwent a procedure after the 2020 season and then had what was described as a minor procedure to reduce swelling in the knee later in

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



49ers 'searching for answers' to help Javon Kinlaw get healthy, says John Lynch

On Sunday night, a familiar face will be leading his Indianapolis Colts defense into Levi's Stadium, looking to prove that the San Francisco 49ers made a mistake by trading him last year. All-Pro defensive tackle DeForest Buckner will play against his former team for the first time since that trade. General manager John Lynch knows the move to ship Buckner, an outstanding young talent, will be questioned for years to come. The two sides just couldn't find a contract extension figure that worked well for each party. "We loved everything about DeForest," Lynch said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "... A lot of people, and I'm sure they'll continue to talk whether that was the right move [or] wrong move, but it's the move we made at the time,
