49ers release joint statement on Javon Kinlaw, reveal defender underwent ACL reconstruction

Nov 5, 2021 at 3:36 PM--


Second-year defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw landed on injured reserve on October 30 after having season-ending knee surgery. The injury, which initially occurred on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys, has plagued him all season.

"It was just an irritant that wouldn't go away," San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch recently said on KNBR radio. "They went in there ... and they really feel like they found the root cause. I think we're going to be releasing a statement because it is a complicated case. I don't want to screw it up. But he's going to be out [for] some time.

"But the good news is we think we'll have the Javon Kinlaw we all thought we were getting, in terms of what he'll be able to do physically when training camp starts next year. And that's a good thing for us."

Today, the 49ers medical staff, Dr. Tim McAdams, and Dr. Neal ElAttrache released the following joint statement.

"49ers defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw recently underwent successful surgery to repair his right knee. As persistent symptoms limited Javon's performance, we consulted with medical experts and determined that the best course of action was to perform surgery. Evaluation of the knee in surgery confirmed suspicions that the ACL had chronic changes that would be best treated with ACL reconstruction. This procedure gives him the best opportunity to make a full recovery and return to playing football in 2022."

Should the 49ers cut DT Javon Kinlaw?

By Rohan Chakravarthi
Jan 30

The offseason is officially upon us, as the San Francisco 49ers were eliminated by the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game to a score of 31-7 after losing quarterback Brock Purdy to injury on their first offensive drive. The 49ers have many personnel decisions to make, as 25 players are currently scheduled for free agency, but there are other tough situations to handle, such as the contract of former first-round pick Javon Kinlaw, who has not looked the same post-injury, especially during his second stint with the team this season at the end of the year. Kinlaw, however, has a fully-guaranteed cap hit of $4.928 million in 2022, which would force the 49ers to take in that amount in dead cap money if they choose to move on. So, should the



Nick Bosa wants to remain with 49ers, 'not necessarily' seeking to be NFL's highest-paid defender

Nick Bosa is the next San Francisco 49ers player in line to receive a big-time contract extension. Most expect the NFL Defensive Player of the Year frontrunner to become the NFL's highest-paid defender. But is that the talented pass rusher's goal? "Not necessarily," Bosa responded when asked that question on Tuesday. "We'll just see where it goes." One of his top priorities is remaining with the 49ers, the team that made him the No. 2 overall pick in 2019. "I'd love to be here, for sure," Bosa said. "This is a great organization. They treat you as good as [anyone] can. I have amazing relationships here, so hopefully [I stay], yeah." The defender isn't sweating the situation right now. He trusts the two sides will come to a mutually

The 49ers have a number of players slated for free agency and will have to make some tough decisions on who will stay and who will go. Two of those players -- offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey and defensive back Jimmie Ward -- spoke about their futures on Sunday while also reflecting on their time with the 49ers. We'll talk about what McGlinchey and Ward said Sunday, as well as a number of other topics in this version of 49ers Notebook. We'll also dive into what happened to Nick Bosa



49ers mailbag: Will 49ers sign a big-name QB? Who will Ryans take to Houston? Who will replace Ryans? Will Garoppolo return?

There's not much going on with the San Francisco 49ers. Not unless you count these small bits of news: Brock Purdy has a UCL tear and will likely need surgery. If they can repair the tendon, he'll need six months of recovery time (which is August). If they have to replace it (Tommy John surgery), it will be decidedly longer. Trey Lance says he is three to four weeks from being cleared to practice, and that he should be 100% by OTAs (organized team activities). Trent Williams was walking with a crutch on Tuesday (locker cleanout day) and had a walking boot on. But he said it's nothing. DeMeco Ryans was hired to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans. Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning, so those hoping he
