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."

49ers Notebook: Frustrated Javon Kinlaw lashes out at reporter

After an eventful day of organized team activities (OTAs) on Tuesday, which marked the first time that the media was allowed at practice during Phase 3 of the offseason schedule, the night ended with some unexpected news regarding a certain San Francisco 49ers player. Here is the latest 49ers news: Frustrated 49ers DT Javon Kinlaw lashes out at reporter After an encounter that occurred during the open portion of OTAs between Javon Kinlaw, the third-year defensive tackle for the 49ers, and Sports Illustrated's Grant Cohn, in which Kinlaw reportedly knocked Cohn's hat off, the 24-year old player joined Cohn's YouTube livestream late Tuesday night and provided a profanity-filled response to Cohn's previous criticism of



49ers' Javon Kinlaw Was Right To Defend Himself

I'll never forget seeing Javon Kinlaw's father, George, fall to the floor when he heard his son's name called in the 2020 NFL Draft. I knew right then and there the 49ers were getting, at the very least, an emotionally invested player in Kinlaw. So I wasn't surprised to see the unfiltered emotions Kinlaw exhibited in his "interview" with Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated. Let's be clear, Javon Kinlaw has every right to defend his reputation and confront anyone who is constructing a counter-productive narrative of him. That not only goes for Kinlaw, that goes for any professional athlete in my opinion. Kinlaw's 'self-defense' plays right into something that I once heard, "a lie that goes uncorrected will soon be accepted as the truth." If Kinlaw allows people to control the

Kyle Shanahan wasn't eager to share an injury report on Tuesday after the San Francisco 49ers concluded their second practice of organized team activities. He had a list of injuries in front of him in case anyone asked about specific players. However, the coach didn't unnecessarily volunteer any information because he doesn't have to right now. That didn't stop reporters from asking about specific players based on their lack of participation during Tuesday's practice. Those questions led to Shanahan providing several updates. LB Azeez Al-Shaair Al-Shaair underwent shoulder and knee surgery after the season. He is working toward being ready for training camp at the end of July. LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, OG
