49ers DL Maurice Hurst has likely season-ending injury; DL Hassan Ridgeway to miss time

Jul 30, 2022 at 9:46 AM--



The 49ers took two more hits on the defensive line Friday, with defensive tackle Maurice Hurst suffering what is likely to be a season-ending injury and defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway sustaining a quad injury that could cost him a couple weeks of practice.

News of both injuries was announced by head coach Kyle Shanahan ahead of Saturday's practice session. Hurst tore his biceps in practice while trying to tackle a runner, according to a tweet from David Lombardi of The Athletic, and will require surgery. Ridgeway took a mild quad strain that may result in him being sidelined for a couple of weeks.

Hurst, 27, is in his second season with the 49ers but was limited to just two games in 2021 due to a calf injury. He was predicted by many to be among those who would make the 53-man roster out of a deep defensive line group. Ridgeway, 27, is in his first year with the 49ers after signing with the team in the spring.

Hurst and Ridgeway join Arik Armstead as 49ers defensive linemen on the sidelines due to injury. Armstead is expected to miss a few weeks due to a knee sprain suffered at practice earlier in the week. The 49ers signed free agent defensive lineman Tomasi Laulile on Friday and also gave a workout to defensive lineman T.J. Carter.

"Everything has definitely slowed down": 49ers QB Trey Lance more comfortable in 2nd season

KNBR was live at the San Francisco 49ers facility in Santa Clara and had an opportunity to speak with Trey Lance. The second-year quarterback feels more acclimated to the area and the team following a whirlwind 2021 campaign. "I know where all the Chipotles are nearby and everything like that," Lance said jokingly. "For me, I just feel so much more comfortable. I know the guys in the locker room so much better. I'm obviously in a very different position than I was last year, and it's just been a ton of fun." A "very different position" is correct. Last season, Lance served as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup, learning from the veteran quarterback. He has been handed the reins this offseason and will be the team's QB1 come Week 1. Many were underwhelmed by



Trent Williams explains how Deebo Samuel inspires teammates, why 49ers will be good 'for a long time'

Trent Williams spoke with reporters after Monday's training camp practice. With his San Francisco 49ers teammate, Deebo Samuel, having recently signed a massive contract extension, the conversation naturally included questions about the star wide receiver. Before practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan praised Samuel's influence on the team. "My favorite thing about Deebo is how much he inspires people," Shanahan told reporters. "And he inspires me more than almost any player I've watched on the field, the way he runs the ball, whether you're handing it to him, whether you're throwing it to him, whether he's catching it on a kick. And these aren't things you



Kyle Shanahan on why it was time for 49ers to transition to Trey Lance; Analyst calls it an unnecessary risk

Mike Tannenbaum made his opinion on the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback situation very clear this week. The former NFL executive turned analyst was asked on ESPN's GetUp if the move from Jimmy Garoppolo, who enjoyed a lot of success in his four-and-a-half year run as the Niners' starting quarterback, to second-year quarterback Trey Lance is a risk. "Yes, and it's an unnecessary one," Tannenbaum said bluntly. "You have a great quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo, who over the last three years has taken your team to the Super Bowl and the [NFC] Championship Game. I love Trey Lance. I think his upside is compelling. But why would you risk not playing Jimmy Garoppolo, especially early, when you have a team that can win right now? "When Jimmy Garoppolo plays, and
