After an eventful day of organized team activities (OTAs) on Tuesday, which marked the first time that the media was allowed at practice during Phase 3 of the offseason schedule, the night ended with some unexpected news regarding a certain San Francisco 49ers player.

Here is the latest 49ers news:

Frustrated 49ers DT Javon Kinlaw lashes out at reporter


After an encounter that occurred during the open portion of OTAs between Javon Kinlaw, the third-year defensive tackle for the 49ers, and Sports Illustrated's Grant Cohn, in which Kinlaw reportedly knocked Cohn's hat off, the 24-year old player joined Cohn's YouTube livestream late Tuesday night and provided a profanity-filled response to Cohn's previous criticism of Kinlaw.



In the video, Kinlaw, clearly frustrated from Cohn's prior words, told the Sports Illustrated reporter to quit speaking about him and revealed details about an encounter earlier that day.

"All I know is when I walked up on you, your f***ing body temperature was f***ing cold as ice," Kinlaw said. "Straight bitch. Your f****** balls shriveled up. Lil d*** n****. Stop f***ing playing with me, bruh."

It is currently unknown whether Kinlaw will face any punishment for his actions, but Cohn revealed Wednesday morning that he was in contact with the 49ers' PR department following Tuesday's incident.

Multiple players not practicing due to injury


There were several players that did not practice on Tuesday due to a slew of injuries, providing younger players with the opportunity to get reps in the 90-minute practice yesterday.

Linebackers Azeez Al-Shaair and Demetrius Flanagan-Fowles sat out due to shoulder surgery and knee tendinitis, respectively. Al-Shaair is expected to be back by training camp, while Flanagan-Fowles may play during OTAs.

Offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill and tight ends George Kittle and Charlie Woerner sat out with lower body injuries as well, but all three are expected to be ready for training camp as well.

Additionally, right tackle Mike McGlinchey and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw are ahead of schedule and should be ready for training camp, per head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Deebo Samuel expected to return for mandatory minicamp


Following practice on Tuesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters about the missing players from OTAs, specifically the veterans, and did express his beliefs that Trent Williams, Nick Bosa, and Deebo Samuel will be in attendance for mandatory minicamp.

"Yeah, Juice got here for OTA one, so he's been here. Today he had a personal thing with his family, so he had to leave today, but he was here yesterday. Trent, I expect to be here towards the end, we'll see. I know he'll at least be here, from what he says, when it's mandatory and same with Bosa and I'm expecting [WR] Deebo [Samuel] also."

The 49ers' mandatory minicamp is expected to take place from June 13-15th.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan provides updates on Trey Lance, Javon Kinlaw

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have stated that Trey Lance's ankle injury in September was a season-ender since the injury occurred. Lynch reaffirmed that this morning on KNBR while adding that the team has been impressed with the quarterback's recovery. Unfortunately, it's just a bit much to expect Lance to return to the field this season. "He'll be fine long-term, but that's a big ask to get back this year," Lynch said. That didn't stop a reporter from asking Shanahan about the possibility ahead of today's practice. Could Lance return to serve as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup if the 49ers embarked on a deep playoff

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday. Still, they managed to work through it and prepare themselves to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and in the end they came out on top with a 13-0 win. How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.

The San Francisco 49ers have won three consecutive games and are probably feeling pretty good heading into their Week 12 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. No one is overlooking the 4-7 team, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has been impressed with New Orleans' defense, understanding that the 49ers' seventh win of the season won't come easy. "Just starting with their defense, they look like a [Saints head coach] Dennis Allen team," Shanahan said. "They've been, to me, one of the best defenses in the league here over the last five or six years. I don't think their numbers are quite there as they usually are, but I think a lot of that has to do with they've been missing about seven starters a number of these games. But they are as tough, and physical, and as sound as

The San Francisco 49ers are working off a short week, preparing for Sunday's matchup against the New Orleans Saints. The team played on Monday night in Mexico City, not arriving back in the Bay Area until Tuesday, around 6 a.m. Players were given Tuesday off but returned to work on Wednesday with a light practice, which was held on the Levi's Stadium field and didn't begin until after 4 p.m.—very late for a 49ers practice. The team held another light practice on Thursday due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Fridays are typically the lightest sessions of the week. But this week, the team went full-speed during Friday's practice. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked how he felt about the final practice of the week. "I just loved the practice that we
