49ers-Titans: Elijah Mitchell, Azeez Al-Shaair game-time decisions; Kyle Shanahan provides other injury updates

Dec 20, 2021 at 10:26 AM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday morning, the day after the team's 31-13 home victory over the Atlanta Falcons. He provided several injury updates from the game and the statuses of others who missed the Week 15 contest.

S Talanoa Hufanga

Hufanga left the game with a knee sprain. The team will evaluate him as the week progresses.

"Holding out hope for him [for Thursday]," Shanahan added.

S Jaquiski Tartt

Tartt went down early in the fourth quarter on a tackle of Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts. He returned to the game but is dealing with an ankle sprain.

"He's day-to-day," Shanahan said. "... With his ankle, I know we've got him as day-to-day, but he was able to come back in the game and finish. So I would be surprised if he wasn't good to go on Thursday."

DE Nick Bosa

Bosa exited the game in the third quarter after an impact with Cordarrelle Patterson. He was evaluated for a concussion and cleared protocol.

"We'll check him again today when he comes in," Shanahan added.

RB Elijah Mitchell and LB Azeez Al-Shaair

Neither Mitchell nor Al-Shaair played on Sunday. Mitchell is dealing with a knee injury while Al-Shaair is recovering from an elbow sprain.

"We're holding out hope they'll be ready to go [on Thursday]," Shanahan said. "I know it's a short turnaround here. They obviously weren't ready to go yesterday, but we're not going to have any full practices this week. But if they can go, we'll definitely let them go. So, we'll probably have to take it all the way up to kickoff."

CB Emmanuel Moseley

Moseley landed on injured reserve on December 11 due to a high-ankle sprain.

"I think it's still going to be some time," Shanahan said. "I mean, I think we'd be fortunate to get him by [Week 18's game against] L.A. Hopefully, if he can't do it then, then we find a way to make sure we're still playing after that game."

S Tavon Wilson and Tarvarius Moore

Wilson remains on injured reserve while Moore remains on the physically-unable-to-perform list. Shanahan was asked if there is any chance either could return and contribute this season.

"Not real likely," Shanahan responded. "Tarvarius Moore, no. We're holding out hope for Tavon, but I have not been told a time he could return yet."

49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about

Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens has some insight on the situation between the San Francisco 49ers and their current wide receiver star, Deebo Samuel. Owens recently told NBC LX that he spoke with Samuel but wasn't willing to disclose the details of that conversation. Owens did share the following, though, courtesy of NBC Sports Bay Area. "I've talked to him personally. I know what's going on," Owens said before his Fan Controlled Football game over the weekend. "I know what transpired. Until he's ready to say what happened with that situation, I just keep that between us. But it's

49ers' 2022 schedule among the toughest in strength-of-schedule rankings

The NFL will announce the entire 2022 slate of matchups on Thursday night. That's when we'll learn the dates and times for all 272 regular-season games. However, we've known the opponents for a while now. If the San Francisco 49ers are to return to the playoffs for the third time in four years, it won't be an easy road. San Francisco's upcoming opponents went 154-135 in 2021. The team's schedule will include seven matchups against opponents coming off a playoff appearance (Rams twice, Cardinals twice, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Raiders). Those opponents had a total winning percentage of .533 in 2021, which is good enough to tie with the Kansas City Chiefs as the fifth-toughest schedule

Richard Sherman: I think Jimmy Garoppolo will be with the 49ers during training camp

We know Jimmy Garoppolo isn't going anywhere until he fully recovers from his offseason shoulder surgery. Most have accepted that. The San Francisco 49ers aren't releasing him. By not trading him by the end of the draft, the 49ers showed they are willing to wait out the situation and see if a trade partner emerges after late June or early July, when the team expects the quarterback to start throwing again. Nick Wagoner of ESPN recently stated that once Garoppolo recovers, the 49ers will again get on the phones and try to generate interest in the 30-year-old quarterback. Of course, that's not
