49ers-Texans: Kyle Shanahan provides injury updates on two players

Jan 2, 2022 at 9:15 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers seemingly emerged from Sunday's 23-7 victory over the Houston Texans relatively unscathed. In fact, head coach Kyle Shanahan had only two injury updates during his post-game press conference.

"[Linebacker] Marcell Harris got evaluated for a stinger," Shanahan revealed. "He did return, though. [Tackle] Trent Williams had an elbow sprain. He returned also."

That was it.

Cornerback Josh Norman was seen on the sideline late in the game. That, however, was just a game decision. After Norman's pass interference, the 49ers opted to replace him with Dontae Johnson late in the game.

Of course, as fans are well aware, an almost clean bill of health for the team after a game doesn't mean it is out of the woods just yet. Players will report back to the facility on Monday morning, and other issues could be reported.

A good example of that occurring in the past is quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo not being mentioned in Shanahan's post-game injury updates following the Week 16 loss to the Tennessee Titans. It wasn't until four days later that Shanahan revealed Garoppolo had suffered the thumb injury that kept him out of Sunday's game against the Texans.

There was also Elijah Mitchell's situation following Week 13. The rookie running back's concussion was reported, but his knee injury wasn't revealed until three days later.

Shanahan will speak with reporters on Monday at 3:30 p.m. PT.

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans spoke with reporters after Wednesday's training camp practice. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. After a practice like yesterday, things were getting physical there. With LB Fred Warner, is there anything you feel like you need to say to him in terms of walking that line between kind of pushing it and going over?

It's training camp, it happens all the time and at all 32 training camps, I'm pretty sure scuffles and things like that happen. You want guys to be smart and understand we are teammates



49ers' Kyle Shanahan provides an update on Jason Verrett's timeline

Jason Verrett is once again working his way back from a devastating injury. The veteran cornerback showed his worth in 2020, proving to be one of the defense's best players and entered his 2021 campaign as one of the 49ers' starting cornerbacks, but suffered a season-ending ACL injury during Week 1. Verrett's career has been injury-plagued. While he has played in the league for eight years, the cornerback has avoided landing on injured reserve just twice (2015, 2020). Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Saturday's practice and was asked about Verrett's timeline. The cornerback started training camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list. "We would love to get him into camp," Shanahan said. "We'd love to get him ready for Week 1. I

It's probably going to be a few weeks, nothing we're concerned about, but it'll take him some time away." He did that early in early in practice Wednesday and he kind of battled through it? "Yeah, he thought it was just a bruise because it didn't bother him that bad, but it was hurting him a little after and he got the MRI, so I have to hold him out for a little
