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.

Is Deebo Samuel's future role with the 49ers playing any part in the state of his contract negotiations with the team? Based on comments from head coach Kyle Shanahan, that doesn't seem to be the case. Shanahan was asked in his pre-practice press conference on Saturday if Samuel's role in 2022 needed to be spelled out in order for contract negotiations to move forward. Shanahan responded by suggesting that he and Samuel have an understanding on that front and that everything is positive between him and the standout wide receiver outside of where things stand with his contract. "Deebo and I talk a lot," Shanahan said before Saturday's practice. "We're good, and we understand our role. I know there's a lot of noise for five months and tweets and a lot of people are

The San Francisco 49ers will be without their big offseason acquisition, cornerback Charvarius Ward, for a couple of weeks. According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, who joined KNBR on Wednesday morning, Ward is dealing with a muscle strain and will miss some time ahead of the regular season. "He had a little setback here with a muscle strain, so he'll be out here for the next probably two weeks or so," Shanahan said on the Murph & Mac show. "But he's gotten enough baseline in to where his camp has been perfect. At least now I know he's not going to get a serious injury here in the next two weeks, and he'll be ready to go here Week 1, though." San Francisco signed Ward to a three-year, $40.5 million deal in March. Ward, 26, has recorded 222 tackles, a

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.
