49ers injury updates: Kyle Shanahan talks K’Waun Williams, JaMycal Hasty, Kevin Givens, Maurice Hurst, Javon Kinlaw

Oct 21, 2021 at 3:47 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are getting healthier. Kind of. There are still several missing pieces, like All-Pro tight end George Kittle. But some other pieces are scheduled to return soon.

This week, the 49ers opened the practice window for running back JaMycal Hasty, who could be activated off injured reserve in time for this weekend's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Cornerback K'Waun Williams is practicing after missing the last two games due to a calf injury.

"It's nice to get Hasty back this week," head coach Kyle Shanahan said on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "He helped us out a lot in those first two games with doing some third-down routes and things like that, and running the ball.

"So, getting Hasty back should help us, and also getting K'Waun back this week. K'Waun has missed a number of games, not being our nickel back. So, just being able to add those two definitely helps."

Not everything is looking up, though. Shanahan was also asked about defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw. The coach's response was similar to what he said yesterday about the second-year player.

"[The knee] hasn't been acting right, and it's been a real unfortunate thing for him and our team this year," Shanahan said. "We're still holding out hope, but it hasn't been looking good so far, and that's just some of the stuff that you've got to deal with."

Defensive tackle Maurice Hurst showed up on today's injury report, with the 49ers indicating an issue with his calf.

"We looked at Mo Hurst today," Shanahan said. "It looked like he had a little bit of an injury, so I'm hoping that we'll get some good news on him going forward.

"I know we get [defensive tackle] Kevin Givens back next week, who is our other 3-technique that we thought we'd have going into the year. So that will help next week, and hopefully, we get some better news on Mo Hurst than I'm anticipating."

Sunday could feature the return of two key San Francisco 49ers role players—running back JaMycal Hasty and defensive lineman Maurice Hurst.

They are wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin), linebacker Fred Warner (hamstring), running back Trey Sermon (ankle), linebacker Dre Greenlaw (groin), and linebacker Marcell Harris (concussion protocol).



Recovery setbacks? Kyle Shanahan provides updates on Dee Ford and Maurice Hurst

Kyle Shanahan didn't want to say that defensive end Dee Ford suffered a setback in his return from injured reserve. The veteran pass rusher's back issues have plagued the defender all season and may continue to hinder him. "That just comes and goes," Shanahan told reporters after Friday's practice. "That's kind of how it's been. So that's why you're never quite sure. Thats' why he wasn't able to go later in this week, and most likely won't go on Sunday. We'll see how he is tomorrow, though, because that changes." The 49ers opened the practice window for Ford last week, on Thanksgiving, with the hope that the pass rusher could play this past weekend against the Minnesota Vikings. He wasn't activated off injured reserve, though, and it sounds like he won't be

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 12 contest against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Running back Elijah Mitchell is still in a blue no-contact jersey, per the only reporter on hand to watch Friday's practice, Matt Barrows of The Athletic. Mitchell is still recovering from surgery to repair a finger fracture. I was the only reporter on hand for the early portion of practice, which either means I'm incredibly dedicated or I'm a massive loser. (Please don't answer which).
