Trent Williams returned to practice on Thursday, marking his first time reuniting with teammates on the field since sustaining an ankle injury on October 15 against the Cleveland Browns. Many viewed this as a positive sign that the offensive lineman may be on track to make a comeback this weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

While head coach Kyle Shanahan remains hopeful, he admits there is uncertainty surrounding the availability of his All-Pro tackle.

"Trent, it's been longer than we anticipated," Shanahan shared on KNBR's "Tolbert and Copes" show. "It's just the ankle's been a little bit more than we thought at first. He's out there battling. He was able to get through some of practice today, which was his first time, really being limited in that way.

"Hopefully, he'll have a good day tomorrow and be able to be out there Sunday, but really not sure yet."

Shanahan also provided an update on Dre Greenlaw, who has been dealing with a shoulder injury but has fully participated in practice this week.

"I think the bye really helped Dre a lot," Shanahan said. "He was really banged up, especially that last game versus [the Cincinnati Bengals]. We probably shouldn't have even let him play that game once it was said and done. And so I think the bye week helped him a ton. He's had a great week of practice."

The 49ers will release their official game statuses on Friday. It will be interesting to see how the team designates Williams for Week 10's action.

Klint Kubiak commends Kyle Shanahan after departing 49ers for Saints

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak

Bayless on 49ers: I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan or Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla
Feb 18

The San Francisco 49ers' collapse in Super Bowl 58 has fueled skepticism from one controversial media personality, indicating a lack of trust in two key figures of the franchise. Skip Bayless is among those doubting quarterback Brock Purdy's capabilities, which isn't new information. Additionally, he questions head coach Kyle Shanahan's effectiveness. Bayless says he was confident that the Kansas City Chiefs would beat the 49ers because of superior coaching by Andy Reid and exceptional talent in quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With Steve Spagnuolo leading the Chiefs' defense, Bayless believes the result was inevitable. "I'm sorry. More than ever, I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan, and I don't believe in Brock Purdy," Bayless said on his FOX Sports podcast. "And I

Baldy weighs in on Kyle Shanahan's OT decision, 49ers being unaware of rule change

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan faced criticism for choosing to receive the football in overtime during Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Ultimately, the decision didn't work out for the 49ers, but the coach has no regrets about wanting his offense on the field to start the extra period. "We wanted the ball third," Shanahan explained after the game. "If both teams matched and scored, we wanted to be the ones who had the chance to go win and got that field goal. So we knew we had to hold them to at least a field goal, and if we did, then we thought it was in our hands." Brian Baldinger sees no issue with the decision. The NFL analyst joined Bay Area radio

Kyle Shanahan expects Steve Wilks, other coaches to be back with 49ers next season

By Kirk Larrabee

Whether or not the weeks ahead bring any further fluctuation to the San Francisco 49ers' coaching staff remains to be seen, but as of Tuesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan carried the belief that his remaining coaches would be back with the team next season. That includes defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who had some ups-and-downs in his first season with the team and went through interviews in January for the then-vacant head coaching positions of the Los Angeles Chargers and Atlanta Falcons. The 49ers saw passing game coordinator Klint Kubiak depart in recent days to become the offensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints, but it doesn't seem like any other departures are imminent. Shanahan was asked during his season-ending press conference Tuesday with
