49ers’ Javon Kinlaw had season-ending surgery, says Kyle Shanahan

Oct 29, 2021 at 1:33 PM--

Javon Kinlaw's season is officially over. The San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle had surgery this week, per head coach Kyle Shanahan. He is headed to injured reserve.

"Kinlaw ended up having his surgery," Shanahan told reporters. "They went in there, looked at the stuff. He'll end up going on IR. He'll be out this year. I think we'll have an announcement on it. There's a lot of things that went into it, that they found and things like that, but I think the good news is they feel they solved the problem."

Kinlaw initially sustained the knee injury on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys. He had multiple procedures during the offseason but also had setbacks. As a result, Kinlaw was never able to get back to 100 percent.

Added Shanahan: "Obviously, it hurts that he's not going to be with us this year but just talking to the doctor, not me personally, but John [Lynch] and our doctors talking to them, he feels that he found the issue, and thinks that will be good news for us next year."

San Francisco drafted Kinlaw (6-5, 319) out of South Carolina with the No. 14 overall pick last year. He registered eight tackles and a quarterback hit through four games this season.

Kinlaw, 24, has recorded 41 tackles, 1.5 sacks, four passes defensed, an interception, and a touchdown in 18 game appearances (16 starts) through his two NFL seasons.

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner spoke with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero following the NFL's schedule release yesterday. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defender was asked about his disgruntled teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who requested a trade this offseason. Samuel is eligible for a contract extension, but there have been no updates on that front. And the 49ers didn't grant his wish for a trade either. Warner told Pelissero that 49ers teammates, like quarterback Trey Lance and tight end George Kittle, have been in contact with Samuel since the trade request became public last month. Pelissero pressed Warner to reveal his level of confidence that Samuel is playing for the 49ers come Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. "I

49ers missing from this 2022 season playoff prediction

The San Francisco 49ers should be pretty good in 2022, right? Yes, they are entering the upcoming season with a second-year starting quarterback who played just 178 snaps last season, and the interior of the offensive line is uncertain, but the rest of the core remains. San Francisco has been a playoff participant in two of the last three seasons, with an injury-plagued 2020 campaign being the exception. There is still star power with names like George Kittle, Trent Williams, Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, and, hopefully, Deebo Samuel. Winning the NFC West over the favored defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams may be an uphill battle, but surely they will participate in postseason play, right? Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports doesn't believe so. He

The 49ers are content with Jimmy Garoppolo on their roster

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch told KNBR this past Monday that the organization appeared close to trading starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo earlier in the offseason, but those talks came to a screeching halt when the decision was made for the 30-year old signal-caller to have surgery on his injured shoulder. Lynch later mentioned that the team continued to have dialogue surrounding Garoppolo during the NFL Draft, but it appeared teams were hoping to secure his services at a discounted price. Lynch also mentioned that teams typically don't rush out to trade for a player following surgery until they know they've made a full recovery. To me, it almost felt like
