49ers coach Kyle Shanahan provides injury updates on Jimmy Garoppolo, Trent Williams, others

Oct 4, 2021 at 3:37 PM--


Today, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via a conference call. His team is coming off a 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and fell to 2-2 on the season. Shanahan provided several injury updates from the game.

The most discussed injury was to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who could not start the second half, giving way to rookie Trey Lance.

Shanahan said Garoppolo suffered a calf contusion and will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. However, the coach believes there is still a chance that Garoppolo will be available for this weekend's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Shanahan also provided the following other injury updates.

  • Kicker Robbie Gould will miss some time due to a strained groin. Injured reserve is an option. The coach estimates his kicker could be out three to five weeks.
  • Tackle Trent Williams is day-to-day with a shoulder injury.
  • Defensive end Samson Ebukam is dealing with some hamstring soreness.
  • Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw is day-to-day due to his knee injury.
  • Tight end George Kittle is day-to-day with calf soreness.

Shanahan felt the injury news for Williams was good, considering how bad it seemed on Sunday.

"That was probably some of the best news we got, considering what we were worried about initially," Shanahan said. "There is some fluid in there and stuff, so there are some issues with it, but that's stuff that, hopefully, he can recover here before Sunday."

Shanahan added that running back Elijah Mitchell should be able to practice on Wednesday without the blue no-contact jersey. The rookie is dealing with a shoulder injury suffered during Week 2.

"That would be huge to get him back," Shanahan said, "and, hopefully, he'll be feeling better this week. It will be nice to see him get some reps without the blue jersey on."

49ers injury updates: Jimmy Garoppolo and Trent Williams won't practice today

Could rookie Trey Lance's first NFL start be on the horizon? San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before today's practice and provided an update on starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The veteran passer will not practice today during the team's first of three practices this week. The 49ers coach added that Garoppolo has not been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, though. "It's better today, which is good news," Shanahan said. "Not enough, though, to let him go [in practice], but also not enough to rule him out. The doctors still say [to] give him another day. He's got a chance [to play on Sunday], so we're still holding out for that." Added Shanahan: "We're just waiting for the swelling to go

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Today's practice report looked very much like what head coach Kyle Shanahan previewed beforehand. There was no Jimmy Garoppolo, as the quarterback continues to recover from a calf injury. "I mean, it could go up to game time," Garoppolo said before practice about Sunday's game status. "We've done it before up to game time. And it's really just about getting the mental reps while I can out there today, see where I'm at tomorrow and everything." There was no Trent Williams, who, like Garoppolo, was injured this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. San Francisco continues to be cautious

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Things are starting to trend towards rookie quarterback Trey Lance making his first NFL start. Jimmy Garoppolo missed his second consecutive practice after suffering a calf injury during Week 4. That makes it unlikely the veteran starter will be healthy enough to lead the offense against the Cardinals. Tight end George Kittle also missed his second consecutive practice. He is dealing with the same calf injury that sidelined him for most of last week. However, he still played this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. If Lance does start, he will probably have left tackle Trent Williams helping keep



Jimmy Garoppolo or Trey Lance for 49ers-Cardinals? John Lynch responds, provides update on George Kittle

Today's practice will be very telling. Everyone wants to know which quarterback will head onto the field with the offense when the San Francisco 49ers take on the division-leading Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon. Will it be Jimmy Garoppolo, or will the team go with the rookie, Trey Lance? Garoppolo sustained a calf injury during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks and has not practiced this week. The 49ers' final practice will be this afternoon, and Garoppolo told head coach Kyle Shanahan that he wants to "give it a go." "Jimmy is a tough competitor," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "And Jimmy was
