49ers work out several kickers with Robbie Gould expected to miss time

Oct 5, 2021 at 6:57 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are trying out several kickers this week, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. They include Michael Badgley, Brett Maher, and Joey Slye.


The Niners' regular kicker, Robbie Gould, suffered a strained groin during pre-game preparations this past weekend, forcing punter Mitch Wishnowsky to handle the kicking duties during the 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Wishnowsky missed a 41-yard field goal attempt and one of his two extra-point attempts.

Gould is expected to miss three to five weeks, per head coach Kyle Shanahan. This week, the team will discuss its options, including the possibility of placing their veteran kicker on injured reserve, forcing him to miss three games.

"We're going to see how he reacts this week," Shanahan said on Monday. "When you go on IR you have to miss three games. It's not just three weeks. So that's something we're going to have to decide as this week goes."

San Francisco has a bye week following Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

During Sunday's victory against the Jaguars, 49ers quarterback Trey Lance got his first live snaps since his first NFL start in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals, although most of them were handoffs. While the game seemed out of reach for much of the fourth quarter, head coach Kyle Shanahan elected not to put his rookie into the game to gain some of that "game-time" experience that Shanahan alluded to last week. Lance trotted out for the first time in over a month during the 49ers last offensive series, in which he handed the ball off twice, rushed once, and kneeled twice to end the game.
