49ers-Cardinals: Kyle Shanahan rules out Javon Kinlaw, provides update on Arik Armstead

Nov 16, 2022 at 8:26 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, getting ready for three days of practice (starting on Thursday) before heading to Mexico City for Monday night's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Two key defensive linemen—Arik Armstead and Javon Kinlaw—have missed significant time.

Armstead has not played since Week 4 due to foot and ankle injuries. San Francisco placed Kinlaw on injured reserve on October 15 due to setbacks in his surgically reconstructed knee. He is now eligible to have his practice window opened, though.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR this morning. He provided updates on both players.

"They're both going in the right direction," Shanahan said on the Murph & Mac show. "Kinlaw will not play this week. Even if he had a chance to, we wouldn't risk it with all the flying here, going to this altitude and stuff. That's what kind of got him this last time, going to Denver.

"But they're both going in the right direction. They got three days off, going through this rehab stuff, so I'll see them on Thursday and see if they're ready to go to get into practice, at least with Armstead. Not sure yet, but I do think it's going in the right direction."

The 49ers may opt to wait for the upcoming three-game stretch of home games. After returning from Mexico City, they will play the New Orleans Saints, Miami Dolphins, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Levi's Stadium.

You can listen to the entire conversation with Shanahan below.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Divisional Round playoff contest against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan provides timeline on potential Jimmy Garoppolo return

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is making progress in his return from a broken foot. However, whether or not he returns at any point during the playoffs remains up in the air. "It was the first week he was able to come out on the field, walk around a little bit, do some work out there," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Friday. Garoppolo was just working through his rehab, the coach said. Of course, reporters seeing the injured quarterback prompted questions about his timeline for a return. Could Garoppolo potentially be ready to suit up—likely as Brock Purdy's backup—for the NFC Championship, assuming the 49ers make it past the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday? "I'd be surprised, but I think it depends on how this whole
