Kyle Shanahan provides important injury updates after 49ers-Vikings preseason game

Aug 21, 2022 at 2:37 PM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call to speak with reporters the day after the team's 17-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. The calls are typically a good time to get injury updates from the coach because the 49ers have had additional time to evaluate those who were dinged up in the game.

The 49ers had two players who sustained injuries against the Vikings. Wide receiver Austin Mack is dealing with a hamstring injury, and will miss a few weeks.

Tackle Sam Schlueter is dealing with some knee tendinitis. His status is day-to-day.

Shanahan also provided updates on players who were already dealing with injuries.

"We expect to get back in practice this week [Emmanuel Moseley], [Arik] Armstead, Charlie Woerner, Jaylon Moore, Curtis Robinson, and then Dontae Johnson," Shanahan said. "And possibly Ambry [Thomas]."

Offensive lineman Colton McKivitz was among the 27 players who did not suit up against the Vikings. The list mostly included starters. For now, McKivitz is considered San Francisco's starting right tackle because Mike McGlinchey is dealing with a knee injury. McKivitz is expected to start on Thursday against the Houston Texans, which is why he sat out Saturday's game.

"I don't think he's going this week," Shanahan said of McGlinchey, "and we're going to test him next week, after this. We'll see how that is but that doesn't really have to do with Colton. That's just been the deal with all of our starters, and the guys playing with the whole weird schedule that we have."

Shanahan added that he hopes the 49ers get cornerback Charvarius Ward back after the Texans game.

The San Francisco 49ers' streak of second-half shutouts continues. Although, it looked like that was in jeopardy a couple of times in the second half. Another streak ended after Sunday's 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. Head coach Kyle Shanahan couldn't say, "No injuries to report," something he had done in the previous three games. The 49ers lost two key players in the game. Running back Elijah Mitchell and guard Spencer Burford exited with injuries. Mitchell was ruled out with a knee injury, while Burford was sidelined due to an ankle injury. After the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Mitchell may have suffered another MCL sprain of his knee, but it's not believed to be as severe as the one he sustained in Week 1. However, he will likely miss some time.

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

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was limited all week during practices as the team prepares for its Week 12 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. When head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Wednesday, rattling off the names of those who would not practice or be limited, Samuel's name was absent. It wasn't until the official practice participation report was released that the wideout's injury was revealed to reporters. Samuel emerged from Monday night's win over the Arizona Cardinals with a hamstring injury. Although, it wasn't immediately known. And the injury was different than the Week 7 hamstring injury that occurred against the Kansas City Chiefs and kept him out the next week against the Los Angeles Rams. "No, it was something
