49ers OTAs: Kyle Shanahan provides several injury updates

May 24, 2022 at 4:19 PM--

Kyle Shanahan wasn't eager to share an injury report on Tuesday after the San Francisco 49ers concluded their second practice of organized team activities. He had a list of injuries in front of him in case anyone asked about specific players. However, the coach didn't unnecessarily volunteer any information because he doesn't have to right now.

That didn't stop reporters from asking about specific players based on their lack of participation during Tuesday's practice. Those questions led to Shanahan providing several updates.

LB Azeez Al-Shaair

Al-Shaair underwent shoulder and knee surgery after the season. He is working toward being ready for training camp at the end of July.

LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, OG Daniel Brunskill

The two players are dealing with "some knee tendonitis." However, Shanahan indicated that both should be fine by training camp. Maybe even toward the end of OTAs.

TE George Kittle, TE Charlie Woerner

The 49ers are being smart with Kittle and Woerner, who have "similar issues." Both were observers during practice. Shanahan noted that there isn't a significant need for either to get work right now.

"We'll see if they go towards the end of OTAs, but there's a good chance we'll hold them out until training camp," Shanahan said, adding that they are dealing with "lower half" issues.

Note: I initially thought Shanahan was asked about "Warner," as in Fred Warner, the linebacker. However, the official transcript of the presser states the question was about Woerner, so this story has been updated.

CB Ambry Thomas

Thomas was ill. He practiced on Monday but was sent home on Tuesday morning after exhibiting "some symptoms."

OL Justin Skule

Skule did practice after missing all of last season with an ACL injury. Shanahan said he is "cleared to go and healthy."

When guys are all the way back, it means they're healed," Shanahan added, "but it takes a while to get all the way back playing football. And that's why he's fortunate to have OTAs to hopefully build a base before you go to training camp, and it's real football."

OT Mike McGlinchey, DT Javon Kinlaw

Shanahan expects McGlinchey (quadriceps) and Kinlaw (knee) to be ready to go by training camp.

"Just looking at them out there, and how there's moving, we consider them ahead of schedule. And it's been very positive on both those guys," Shanahan said.

CB Jason Verrett

Shanahan is optimistic that Verrett could be healthy by training camp. The cornerback suffered an ACL injury during Week 1 of last season. The 49ers re-signed him to a one-year deal.

"We were pumped to get Jason back, and we know it's been a hard recovery for him like he's gone through a number of times," Shanahan said. "But I know when he got back here, and everyone saw him, everyone's pumped to have that guy back. And we're all pulling that he can get healthy for training camp."
