San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via a conference call on Monday, the day after the team's 44-23 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He provided several injury updates from the game.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel emerged with a hamstring injury and is day-to-day.

"He finished the game, but it was bothering him," Shanahan revealed. "But yeah, he reported it today."

As reported after the game, fullback Kyle Juszczyk broke his finger in the third quarter and had surgery on Monday.

"Most likely won't be available this week," Shanahan said. "Should get him after the bye."

Shanahan added, "Missing any of our guys is tough. We've got a number of tight ends on our roster who we try to cross-train at that position. Whether it's Ross [Dwelley] or sometimes it's [George] Kittle. We've got [Tyler] Kroft. We've got Charlie [Woerner]. So we use all those guys pretty similar."

Linebacker Dre Greenlaw is dealing with a calf injury and is day-to-day. Shanahan said cornerback Charvarius Ward, who missed practices last week with a groin injury, emerged from the game without any setbacks. Did the injury impact his play against the Chiefs?

"I think he was more limited by not being able to practice as much in the last couple of weeks, I think," Shanahan said. "When you don't practice, which he couldn't have because of what he was coming back from, it does have an effect on these guys. And that stuff adds up, especially when it started happening a little bit last week."

Shanahan also shared updates on previously-injured players. The 49ers have not yet made a decision regarding cornerback Jason Verrett (knee). The team has until Wednesday—the end of his 21-day practice window–to activate him off the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. If they don't, he will not make an appearance this season.

"He looked better last week," Shanahan said of Verrett. "He got more reps last week and took a step in the right direction."

Defensive lineman Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) has a chance to play on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

"Hope to have him back this week," Shanahan said. "Still continuing his rehab, and we'll see how it goes. But it's not just a thing that we have a timeline on because it's not an exact injury. We've just got to wait until it's not flaring up as much."

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call with reporters on Friday afternoon, the day after the team's 30-12 win over the New York Giants. Shanahan provided several injury updates. Linebackers Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles and Dre Greenlaw emerged from Thursday night's game with low-ankle sprains. Both are day-to-day. The good news is that players have some extra time off before returning to work on Monday, when the 49ers begin preparing for the Arizona Cardinals. The only other player who was banged up in the Week 3 contest is wide receiver Deebo Samuel. The 49ers initially feared a rib injury, but

49ers' Kyle Shanahan on what's different about Deebo Samuel this season

By David Bonilla
Sep 20

This past offseason, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel had a very productive meeting with his head coach, Kyle Shanahan. On Tuesday, Shanahan admitted to initiating the conversation, knowing that his star receiver could do much more than he showed in 2022. "Deebo comes to talk a lot, but I'd say I started that conversation a little bit," Shanahan told reporters. Samuel held out for a new contract last offseason, even asking to be traded ahead of the draft. The rift between player and team eventually ended that July, at the start of training camp. By then, the receiver had already missed much of the offseason. Samuel was coming off a breakout 2021 campaign that saw the player rack up 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns. He

The San Francisco 49ers announced that they are placing cornerback Samuel Womack on Injured Reserve, causing him to miss at least the next four weeks of the season. Womack was expected to go on Injured Reserve after sustaining an MCL injury during the final play of Wednesday's practice, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan, and the 49ers made the move official on Saturday. The cornerback is now expected to miss six-to-eight weeks, according to Shanahan, but will not require surgery, and is expected to return at some point this season. "I think it's like six to eight weeks, something like that," Shanahan said of Womack's timetable to return. Womack (5-10, 189) is in his second season with the 49ers after being selected in Round 5 of the

One reason why Deebo Samuel and the 49ers love Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy wasn't perfect on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, yet the team was talented and disciplined enough to beat its division rivals 30-23. Purdy had arguably his worst game as a starter. The second-year quarterback earned an overall Pro Football Focus grade of 65.1, his lowest regular-season mark since Week 13 of 2022. He finished the game 17-of-25 for 206 yards and a passer rating of 93.1, a new regular-season career-low as a starter. The stat line might have been better had Purdy connected on a few passes to open receivers that were overthrown. After the game, when asked about the offense's shortcomings against the Rams, Purdy
