Kyle Shanahan says Kevin Givens, JaMycal Hasty will be out “a while”; 3 running backs visiting 49ers

Sep 20, 2021 at 1:08 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today via a conference call and provided several injury updates. He confirmed a report from The Athletic that defensive tackle Kevin Givens suffered a high-ankle sprain during the team's 17-11 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Givens' injury occurred in the first quarter. Also suffering a high-ankle sprain was running back JaMycal Hasty. Shanahan doesn't expect either to return soon.

"Kevin Givens had a high-ankle [sprain]," Shanahan said. "He'll be out for a while. Same thing with JaMycal Hasty—high-ankle."

Shanahan also provided injury updates to several 49ers running backs, a position group seemingly hit hard on Sunday. Elijah Mitchell, Trey Sermon, and Hasty each left the game. However, Mitchell did return following the injuries to the other two.

Mitchell is "day to day" with a shoulder injury. Sermon is in the concussion protocol.

"Arik Armstead had an abductor," Shanahan added. "We'll be the same this week as we were last week with him. Javon Kinlaw, knee. We'll have to manage him this week. Josh Norman had an ankle. He's day to day. Hoping to get [Emmanuel] Moseley back this week."

Emmanuel Moseley has been inactive the first two weeks due to a knee injury.

49ers hosting three RBs for visits


ESPN's Adam Schefter reported today that the 49ers are going to host two free-agent running backs, Duke Johnson and Lamar Miller, for visits.


Johnson has been in the league since 2015 and had stints with the Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans. He was briefly with the Jacksonville Jaguars this month before being released last week.

Miller has been in the league since 2012 and spent time with the Miami Dolphins, Texans, Chicago Bears, and Washington Football Team. Washington released him on August 15.

Shanahan added that the 49ers also worked out former Buffalo Bills running back T.J. Yeldon.

"It's nice to get Hasty back this week," head coach Kyle Shanahan said on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show.

49ers rookie Trey Lance to make first NFL start, says Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers hoped quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be able to take part in today's practice and test whether his right leg was strong enough to play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Garoppolo didn't, and he has now missed an entire week's worth of practice. After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers are ruling Garoppolo "out" for the Week 5 matchup and that rookie Trey Lance would start in the veteran's place. With Garoppolo sidelined, Lance has received the majority of the practice reps this week. "The more reps you get, the better you're going to get," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR. "He does things exceptionally well. I think he's taken to our offense well. With every rep, he's going to get

Kyle Shanahan is hopeful that his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, recovers enough from his calf injury to be available after the bye week. It sounds like the quarterback will have an opportunity to return as the starter for Week 7's matchup against the Indianapolis Colts after Trey Lance started in his place this weekend. Shanahan spoke with reporters after today's 17-10 defeat at State Farm Stadium. He was asked if anything has changed regarding the team's quarterback situation. On Friday, the coach declared that Garoppolo would have been the Week 5 starter had the quarterback been healthy. "No, nothing's changed," Shanahan told reporters. "That was just one game. It was a tough loss right there, and I'm going to talk to our whole team tomorrow and think about how
