49ers’ Kyle Shanahan participating in NFL’s ‘My Cause My Cleats’ campaign

Dec 2, 2021 at 6:11 PM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan will be participating for the first time in the NFL's "My Cause My Cleats" campaign this weekend. He will be wearing the shoes below in support of the Institute for Myeloma and Bone Cancer Research.

49ers linebackers coach Johnny Holland announced in August that he has been involved in a lengthy battle with cancer and was taking some time away from football.

"In September of 2019, I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma and have gone through several rounds of remission and relapse," Holland said via a statement issued by the 49ers. "Unfortunately, the cancer has returned and, beginning on September 6th, I will take some time away from the team to receive treatment. In sharing the details of my diagnosis, my desire is that I can be an advocate and beacon of hope for those who are battling cancer to help remind them that we're all in this together."

Holland joined Shanahan's staff in February of 2017, shortly after the 49ers hired Shanahan to be the team's head coach.

Matt Barrows of The Athletic notes that Holland has been on hand for this week's practices. The 49ers are preparing to travel to Lumen Field to play the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Kyle Shanahan offering no hints at 49ers' starting QB vs. Rams

The Los Angeles Rams would probably appreciate knowing who the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback will be on Sunday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan didn't offer any hints before Wednesday's practice. The safer bet is that rookie Trey Lance will get his third career start. Sunday is the most important game of the season for San Francisco, though. If the 49ers win, they are in the playoffs. If they lose, then it would take the Atlanta Falcons beating the New Orleans Saints to get in. Jimmy Garoppolo missed Week 17 due to a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. He threw some footballs on Tuesday to evaluate where he is in his recovery. "Yesterday, it felt good," Garoppolo said on Wednesday. "Woke up this morning after throwing, didn't feel

This week, the San Francisco 49ers released a video featuring a mic'd up George Kittle having fun against the Houston Texans. A lot of fun. The Niners won the Week 17 home matchup 23-7, earning the team's ninth victory of the season. As always, the 49ers tight end was one of the most excited individuals in the stadium that day. The video shows Kittle encouraging and congratulating his teammates, including rookie quarterback Trey Lance, who made his first start at Levi's Stadium. At about the 3:40 mark, you can see an enthusiastic Kittle celebrating a touchdown with his teammates—and being just as physical as he is when the play clock is running. "You. Yes, yes, yes, you," Kittle yells while pointing at Lance before running over to the

The 49ers still don't know for sure if COVID-19 will leave their defensive backfield decimated against the Los Angeles Rams this weekend, but they're preparing for every scenario in case it does. And thankfully it sounds like they've got a key reinforcement on the way just when they need him the most. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans dove into the DB situation in depth on Thursday, with Ryans talking about the issue after practice with reporters and Shanahan speaking about it during an appearance on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks Podcast.
