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.

49ers' Emmanuel Moseley working with Charvarius Ward to become a better press corner

Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is entering his fifth NFL season. That's the same experience—as far as years—as his new teammate, Charvarius Ward. In March, the San Francisco 49ers signed the 26-year-old Ward to a three-year, $40.5 million contract, bolstering the defensive back room. While the two cornerbacks entered the league at the same time, Ward has over 1,000 more career snaps on defense (2,719 to 1,676). So Moseley knows there is a lot he can learn from Ward. "He's a great press corner, so I'm learning from him," Moseley told reporters on Wednesday. "Just the attitude that he brings every day to the meetings, talking to the younger guys, and even coaching me up. I like Charvarius, and I'm ready to work with him." Moseley has been



49ers' Emmanuel Moseley seeks to help Trey Lance, stop Brandon Aiyuk

Emmanuel Moseley is always open to helping his San Francisco 49ers teammates. One, however, doesn't seem to need any help. In fact, the fifth-year cornerback is looking to stop one teammate who has been a headache thus far for the defense. Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk is having an excellent training camp, putting in day after day of impressive effort. The 49ers defensive backs have been praising Aiyuk, expecting the third-year wideout to have a breakout season. "Right now, he's having an outstanding camp," safety Jimmie Ward said this week. "I feel like he's having the best camp out of everybody on the team, offense and defense." Ward noted maybe only



49ers DL Arik Armstead sidelined with knee sprain; DT Javon Kinlaw, OL Mike McGlinchey to return to team drills soon

The 49ers have their first notable injury of this year's training camp, but it doesn't sound like it's something of a serious nature. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed Friday morning that defensive lineman Arik Armstead sprained his MCL at practice this week and that it could require some time to recover. Armstead was missing at practice on Thursday and could be out for a while. "It's probably going to be a few weeks. Nothing we're concerned about, but we're taking some time away," Shanahan said. Shanahan said Armstead took a bruise during practice that wasn't an issue at first but flared up after practice. After going through examinations, the 49ers decided to put Armstead on the sidelines. "It didn't bother him that bad but it



49ers' DeMeco Ryans identifies training camp focus for Javon Kinlaw: 'Technique, technique, technique'

San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw is big, strong, and has all the tools to succeed in the NFL. His 2020 rookie campaign was underwhelming, racking up just 1.5 sacks to go along with 33 tackles, three for a loss, four quarterback hits, and one interception. Kinlaw's 2021 campaign was cut short by injury. The former No. 14 overall pick appeared in only four games before undergoing season-ending reconstructive surgery to repair his ACL. With Kinlaw making his way back to the football field, reporters were curious about the training camp focus for the 6-foot-5 defender. "Kinlaw, I tell him every day as I walk by him. I just say, 'Technique, technique, technique," defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans said on Wednesday. "That's the main thing. If he just
