49ers’ Javon Kinlaw a candidate for injured reserve, JaMycal Hasty expected to be ‘full-go,’ says Kyle Shanahan

Oct 22, 2021 at 1:53 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have been trying to manage defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw's knee injury, but some extended rest might be necessary for the second-year player. Today, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Kinlaw is a candidate to land on injured reserve, which would force him to miss a minimum of three games.

"Yes, definitely [have to consider injured reserve]," Shanahan said. "Yeah, it's something we're worried about and concerned about, something we'll probably decide here in the next week."

What are the 49ers' options with the interior of the defensive line without Kinlaw?

"We've got [Kentavius] Street, we've got D.J. Jones, we've got Zach Kerr," Shanahan responded. "And we've got guys on [the] practice squad with [Darrion] Daniels and stuff, so those are decisions we'll have to make."

Kinlaw initially sustained the knee injury on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys, forcing him to miss last season's final two games. He was inactive for Week 1 and has yet to be full-go in a practice leading to a game this season.

"We still are very resolute that he's going to be a tremendous [asset], and has the makings of a dominant player," general manager John Lynch said this morning, "but you have to be healthy in this league to do that. So, he's struggling through that.

"We're trying to help him find answers, and we're working towards that. It's unfortunate, but that's always a risk in this league."

The good news is that running back JaMycal Hasty should return. He will likely be activated from injured reserve on Saturday.

"I expect him to be full-go," Shanahan said. "He had a real good week, which you never know when they're coming back from a high-ankle. But he looked good Monday and continued all the way to today, so no concerns."

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

OTA's (organized team activities) started on Monday for the San Francisco 49ers. Finally, some good news, having actual football to discuss. I know you're excited to talk football and not dumb things like "arm fitness." I can tell by the look in your eyes. But the start of OTA's wasn't the only exciting news for 49ers fans. 49ers Webzone announced the revival of a longtime fan favorite. It is the feature that answers fans' questions about the 49ers, packaged nicely in a little thing we call 49ers Mailbag. During the offseason, the mailbag will come out every other week. During the season, we'll do it every week. So now that the word is out, and 49ers fans are dancing in the streets, let's settle down, compose ourselves, and hit the



Kyle Shanahan still expects 49ers to trade Jimmy Garoppolo but it's 'not a guarantee'

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters for the first time since the draft. He stepped up to the podium after Tuesday's practice, the second of organized team activities. Of course, there was no shortage of reporters trying to pry quarterback information from the head coach, who did his best to limit his responses to such questions. That's likely because Shanahan knows how big of an offseason storyline the quarterback situation has become. Most expect second-year quarterback Trey Lance to be the starter, replacing veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The 49ers hoped to trade Garoppolo by now, but the quarterback undergoing shoulder surgery on March 8 halted any trade talks. Shanahan has suggested that the 49ers would be willing to hold onto
