DT Maurice Hurst leaves 49ers facility on crutches, could miss 4-8 weeks

Oct 22, 2021 at 12:06 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers will be without defensive tackle Maurice Hurst for an extended time. He was seen leaving the team's facilities on crutches and with his foot in an orthopedic book, per Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group.


On Thursday, head coach Kyle Shanahan didn't sound too optimistic about Hurst's status after the defensive lineman showed up on yesterday's injury report with a calf injury.

"We looked at Mo Hurst today," Shanahan said on Thursday. "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."

Shanahan didn't receive good news on Friday.

"He hurt his calf. A pretty bad injury," Shanahan told reporters after the team's final practice of the week. "Just like these calf injuries have been in the past, I've been told anywhere from four weeks to eight weeks. With it being 24 hours after that, we're not exactly sure yet, but it's going to be some time."

As Inman notes, this is a tough blow for a defensive line that is already struggling to keep Javon Kinlaw on the field.

San Francisco signed Hurst to a one-year contract on April 23, and the defensive lineman has appeared in two games this season, registering two tackles and a tackle for a loss. The 49ers activated him off of injured reserve on October 2.

Sunday could feature the return of two key San Francisco 49ers role players—running back JaMycal Hasty and defensive lineman Maurice Hurst. Hasty has been dealing with the ankle injury he suffered during Week 9's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Hurst sustained a calf injury during an October practice. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said both players will be limited in Wednesday's practice but could play on Sunday. The coach added that several players would not practice. 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 49ers running back suffered a concussion on a vicious hit from a Seahawks player on the opening kickoff, and was transported to a local hospital where he spent the night for observation. On Monday, a day after the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via a conference call and provided an update on Cannon.
