Injury updates: 49ers delaying Dre Greenlaw’s return to the practice field

Nov 11, 2021 at 1:43 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers had hoped that linebacker Dre Greenlaw might return to the practice field last week. That didn't happen. He probably won't return this week either.

"We're probably going to have to push it off another week," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters before today's practice.

Greenlaw had core muscle surgery after Week 1 and landed on injured reserve on September 18.

"Dre's looking really good," linebacker Fred Warner said this week during a radio interview. "Obviously, I don't know when [he'll return]. The trainers and all those people are handling that kind of stuff. He says he feels great. He looks great. He's battled his tail off to try to get back. I mean, he misses it so much. He talks about how hard it is to watch us on Sunday because all he wants to do is be out there with his boys and help contribute."

Shanahan provided several other injury updates ahead of the team's first full practice of the week.

The following players will not participate today.


The following players will be limited.


Shanahan added that Moseley's injury from the team's Week 9 contest against the Arizona Cardinals is bothering him this week.

"It's hurting now from the game, but he should be alright," Shanahan said. "Got to be careful with him today."

Safety Jimmie Ward could return to practice on Friday. Shanahan noted, "He just can't today."

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 11 contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. The 49ers are being cautious with rookie running back Elijah Mitchell, who sustained a finger fracture during Monday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams.

"I think that's something that you take all the way [to game time]," Lynch said on KNBR. "He's earned that right, even as a rookie, to take it all the way down to game time. We've got to get
