49ers DL Arik Armstead sidelined with knee sprain; DT Javon Kinlaw, OL Mike McGlinchey to return to team drills soon

Jul 29, 2022 at 9:22 AM--


The 49ers have their first notable injury of this year's training camp, but it doesn't sound like it's something of a serious nature.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed Friday morning that defensive lineman Arik Armstead sprained his MCL at practice this week and that it could require some time to recover. Armstead was missing at practice on Thursday and could be out for a while.

"It's probably going to be a few weeks. Nothing we're concerned about, but we're taking some time away," Shanahan said.

Shanahan said Armstead took a bruise during practice that wasn't an issue at first but flared up after practice. After going through examinations, the 49ers decided to put Armstead on the sidelines.

"It didn't bother him that bad but it was bothering him a little after," Shanahan said. "He got the MRI so we're going to hold him out a little bit."

Shanahan shared some good news on offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey (quad) and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw (knee), who have been rehabbing from significant injuries throughout the offseason. Both players are expected to be back for team drills starting tomorrow.

In addition, Shanahan revealed offensive tackle Trent Williams was away from the team this week due to child birth. Williams is now back with the team.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 4 contest against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Defensive linemen Arik Armstead and Javon Kinlaw returned to practice. Armstead has been dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, forcing him to miss the 49ers' Week 3 game against the Denver Broncos. Kinlaw played in that game but sat out the first two full practices of the week due to a knee injury. "Just flaring up on him," head coach Kyle Shanahan said of Kinlaw's knee. The defensive tackle underwent reconstructive surgery on his ACL last year. Is the coach concerned that the injury could hinder Kinlaw throughout the season?
