San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday, the day after the team's 31-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, providing updates on several injuries.

Guard Aaron Banks is set to sit out for a few weeks due to a turf toe injury. Of course, that timeline is just an estimation.

"Yeah, with turf toe, you never know," Shanahan said. "So they told me it should be a few weeks, is what I got here. I know that's a little vague, but I would say that means at least three weeks.

"I know I was told he did it on the second to last drive. I haven't gotten to speak with him personally, so I'm not sure which play it was on, but he didn't report it until after."

Dre Greenlaw is dealing with a shoulder strain and is considered day-to-day.

"I know it was bothering him," Shanahan said of his linebacker. "It's been bothering him for a couple of weeks, and I just know that it got worse during the game."

As for Brock Purdy, who recently cleared concussion protocol, Shanahan assured reporters that the quarterback emerged unscathed from Sunday's game. There was concern when Purdy's head hit the field after being tackled by a Bengals defender late in the game.

Watching the game tape even caused Shanahan some initial concern, but the coach added, "But just talking to him after the game and talking to him today, it's been totally fine."

Shanahan also provided an update on tackle Trent Williams, who is expected to return after the bye week, barring any setbacks to his ankle injury. The coach noted that the team didn't anticipate the offensive lineman playing against the Bengals after a lack of noticeable improvement on Saturday.

"Thought he was going to be good, but he wasn't," Shanahan said. "And hopefully, he'll have a good week, this week, of rehab and be ready to go when we come back for practice next Monday."

Losing Dre Greenlaw during the Super Bowl was a blow to the San Francisco 49ers, not just because of his on-field impact but also for the leadership he brings to the defense. "Dre's the heartbeat of our defense, him and [LB] Fred [Warner] in there, and how they feed off each other," tight end George Kittle said after the Super Bowl loss. "... We lose a guy like Dre, it's tough. He's just such a fantastic football player, and he's everything that the Niners stand for." Greenlaw tore his Achilles in the second quarter of the game, a devastating outcome for a player who battled through multiple injuries during the season, ranging from ankle, hamstring, shoulder, and hip issues.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy has earned a fan in Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. Following the Chiefs' victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl 58, Spagnuolo made sure to extend his regards to Purdy. "I just texted Brock the other day," Spagnuolo disclosed in a recent conversation with Peter Schrager on "The Season" podcast. "I tried to track down his cell number. I just wanted to tell him how much respect I have for him [and] what a terrific game he played. He's such a quality guy, strong Christian man, and I respect all of that, and I'm happy for all the success." Naturally, while Spagnuolo is content that Purdy didn't overly excel in the Super Bowl, he expressed admiration for the young quarterback, saying, "I think Brock

John Lynch says Brock Purdy has given 49ers stability at QB

By Marc Adams
Feb 27

The San Francisco 49ers finally have stability at the quarterback position. And it's been a while coming. Three years ago, the team was on the verge of making a major trade for the chance to draft Trey Lance, who they hoped would be the QB they had been waiting on. They needed to find a new quarterback because of the lack of stability at the position, primarily due to the number of games starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo seemed to miss most seasons. But after watching Lance for some time, questions began to arise as to whether or not he could be the quarterback they drafted him to be. And after he and Garoppolo both were lost to injury in 2022, Brock Purdy, the barely-drafted seventh-rounder came in and saved the season, leading the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game. But a torn
