Kyle Juszczyk believes he broke his finger; 49ers injury updates on Azeez Al-Shaair, Jason Verrett

In case you missed it in the in-game injury article, San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk provided an update on the injury he sustained in Sunday's game. He exited the game in the third quarter with a dislocated finger in his right hand and was seen on the sideline with medical staff trying to put it back into place. After the game, Juszczyk told reporters he believed he also broke the finger on his hand.

Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after the Kansas City Chiefs routed the 49ers. While the head coach searched for answers on why his team had such a disappointing performance, he provided updates on two key injuries.

They weren't in-game injuries, though. First, a reporter asked Shanahan about Azeez Al-Shaair, who suffered an MCL sprain during Week 3's loss to the Denver Broncos. Will the injured linebacker have an opportunity to return after the team's bye week?

"I don't think right after the bye," Shanahan said. "I think he's got a couple of more weeks on that. Him and Elijah kind of had the same injury. I just think Elijah's a couple of weeks ahead of him."

Shanahan, referring to Elijah Mitchell, has previously said that he expects the second-year running back to return after the bye week. Mitchell also suffered an MCL sprain, but as the coach noted, his took place in Week 1.

Shanahan was also asked about Jason Verrett. Do they plan to activate the cornerback off the physically unable to perform (PUP) list this week?

"I'm not sure," Shanahan responded.

The team must decide this week whether to activate the cornerback. He will need to sit out the remainder of the season if they don't. Verrett is attempting to return from the ACL injury he suffered during Week 1 last season.

Elijah Mitchell to miss 6-8 weeks with MCL sprain, other 49ers injury updates from Kyle Shanahan

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call with reporters on Monday, a day after the team's 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. He provided several injury updates from the game. Running back Elijah Mitchell suffered an MCL sprain in his left knee. The team initially thought it wasn't as severe as the MCL sprain he suffered in his right knee during Week 1, forcing him to miss seven games. The 49ers believed he might miss two or three weeks. That isn't the case, though. "It wasn't the news we were looking for," Shanahan said. "He'll be out longer than that. Most likely six to eight weeks." Mitchell will likely land back on the injured reserve list. Shanahan said the team hopes he can return sometime during the playoffs.

The defensive lineman isn't alone in believing he will be out there this weekend. "We're just excited to get him back," head coach Kyle Shanahan said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "He's had a great week, so everything's trending, definitely, for him to play. So as long as we don't have any setbacks today, he should be out there. "He's been a guy that we've been missing a lot. It's a huge presence in there,

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.
