49ers placing kicker Robbie Gould on injured reserve

Oct 5, 2021 at 2:34 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have decided on the status of kicker Robbie Gould. The veteran special teams player is being placed on injured reserve, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Earlier today, Tom Pelissero reported that the 49ers are signing kicker Joey Slye to fill in for Gould.


Gould suffered a groin injury during pre-game preparations this past weekend, and the 49ers expect him to miss three to five weeks, per head coach Kyle Shanahan. Gould will now miss at least four weeks, as being on injured reserve requires him to miss at least three games. San Francisco has a bye week after this weekend's contest against the Arizona Cardinals.

Gould is 38 years old and is in his 17th NFL season. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro kicker is in his fifth season with the 49ers.
