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

Aug 6, 2022 at 9:37 AM--


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 think that's his mindset, so I'll never go against him on that. But I'm definitely ready, if he's not ready for Week 1, to get him to whenever he's ready. If he comes back Week 1, Week 4, Week 8, at the end of the year, everyone knows how good and talented of a player he is, but he's one of the best leaders on our team, too."

Verrett joined the 49ers in 2019. He was working his way back from an Achilles tendon injury and appeared in only one game that season.

"I thought our first year we had him here was similar," Shanahan shared. "I thought we brought him back a hair too early because he was healthy, but he didn't have his legs back quite yet. And he got thrown into that game versus Pittsburgh in Week 3, got beat on a go route, and that's when we saw he wasn't quite there yet. Then it's hard to start back. So we definitely don't want to do anything too soon and give him time to get back to being Jason."

Everyone was under the assumption that San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead suffered his foot injury during Week 2's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Kyle Shanahan gave that impression last week when asked about the injury. He was asked if Armstead suffered the injury against the Seahawks. "Yeah, it was bothering him," the coach responded. It turns out the injury started before the start of the regular season. Armstead told NBC Sports Bay Area that he is dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. It began before Week 1's contest against the Chicago Bears and got worse against



49ers' Kyle Juszczyk defends Kyle Shanahan's use of Trey Lance

One of the biggest debates since the San Francisco 49ers' Week 2 win over the Seattle Seahawks has been head coach Kyle Shanahan's use of Trey Lance. Many feel that the excessive use of quarterback runs unnecessarily put the second-year player in harm's way. Lance ended up suffering a season-ending ankle injury in the first quarter. During an interview on 95.7 The Game, fullback Kyle Juszczyk defended his head coach. He doesn't understand the criticism directed in Shanahan's direction, and the growing lack of trust from a very vocal segment of the fanbase. "I think he deserves that trust, and he's built that reputation to have that trust," Juszczyk told Damon Bruce and Ray Ratto. "He's had so much success in the decisions that he has made here that I think he's
