49ers-Eagles: Kyle Shanahan provides injury updates on Emmanuel Moseley, Javon Kinlaw, Jeff Wilson

Sep 15, 2021 at 10:13 AM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before today's practice at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. He provided several injury updates as the team prepares for its Week 2 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw (knee) and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley (knee) will be among the injured players who will not practice today. Both were inactive for Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.

Shanahan was asked if Kinlaw's injury is something that might have to be managed throughout the season.

"We're not sure. That's why we're trying to take it slow with him," Shanahan answered. "And when we have, it's gotten better. So, you've got to see how that continues to react. I think we'll be easy with him today. Hopefully, if it continues to go well today, he'll get out there more tomorrow.

"When he hurt his knee in Dallas last year, it was a pretty bad injury that he ended up going on IR. He got it cleaned up, but it still hasn't healed quite as right as we want. So, it seems like it [is better], but when he's gone, it's just started to affect him. So hopefully, taking it easy these last 10 days or so, it will start to get better, and we'll see how it goes day to day."

Getting Moseley back would be a significant boost for a 49ers secondary that lost its other starting cornerback, Jason Verrett, for the season to a torn ACL. The coach was asked if he expects Moseley's injury to be a long-term issue.

"No, I don't think so," Shanahan responded. "We knew we had a chance last week, really, which made me feel pretty good this week. I think the traveling, stuff like that, doesn't help a ton. That's why he's not practicing today. We'll re-evaluate it tomorrow. I don't think it will be a long-term thing."

Shanahan also provided another update on Jeff Wilson (knee). The running back is on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list but is expected to return this season. The 49ers coach is hesitant to set a return date right now, though.

"I think he just started running and stuff," Shanahan said. "I hate to give a date [for his return] because just like I did on Monday [with Raheem Mostert]. I could be wrong. It seems like to be a big deal if I correct myself. I'm hoping in November [for Wilson]. I guess that's the area that we're saying, but it could be a little earlier; it could be later."

Shanahan added that linebacker Dre Greenlaw (groin) and defensive lineman Arik Armstead (abductor) will not practice today. Armstead is a surprising addition to the list. Although, Shanahan said he would be "surprised" if the veteran defender did not play on Sunday against the Eagles.

Defensive end Dee Ford and linebacker Marcell Harris will be limited in practice.

The 49ers are just three days away from their preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers (8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT, Friday), a game that will give 49ers fans the chance to see a number of their team's players in on-field action for the first time. Two particular newcomers of interest to keep an eye on Friday night will be offensive lineman Spencer Burford and wide receiver/return specialist Ray-Ray McCloud. Burford is progressing towards starting as a rookie at right guard after being selected by the 49ers in Round 4 of the 2022 NFL Draft, while McCloud will be making his 49ers preseason debut after signing with the team as a free agent in the offseason. McCloud is expected to be the primary return specialist for the 49ers this season, but there's a chance he could also

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

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
