San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after Friday's practice, providing final updates ahead of the team's Week 10 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Here is everything he had to say.

Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff.

Opening comments:

"Injuries for the game, [OL] Aaron Banks is out, [DL] Drake Jackson's out. All these next guys are all questionable. [T] Trent Williams, [DL] Robert Beal [Jr.], [DL Javon] Hargrave, [CB Samuel] Womack, [CB Darrell] Luter [Jr.] and [LB Demetrius] Flannigan-Fowles. Go ahead."


"His knee acted up in practice yesterday and ankle for Flannigan."

Luter and Beal aren't on the active roster?

"No, neither is Sammy. That's a new rule in the last couple weeks, we still got to put designation on those guys and then answer it tomorrow."

The eye test would suggest, Trent obviously is not quite all the way back. Where do you think he is in his chances of actually being able to play well?

"I think he's real questionable to be playing. That's what my eyes see too."

Is that a legit game time decision?

"We got tomorrow. Tomorrow is Saturday. If it's no tomorrow, then we'll wait until game time."

Does the fact that it's a cross country flight factor into how he feels when he gets there?

"No, just today was half speed. He wasn't able to do a lot yesterday and wanted to know how he feels all the way going up to it."

Can you tell this week there's been more bounce in the staff and your team as far as getting back to the pre-Cincinnati Week level?

"Yeah, definitely. I mean, coming back from the week off, I think everyone was kind of bouncing off the walls on Monday. It was awesome to get back in here. I think I spent a week being a little pissed off, which makes you a lot more hungry to get back and kind of solve that. Also, I think naturally when you're away and resting and getting a break from everybody that you're with every day, all day. It's fun to get back and see everyone again."

How do you think LB Dre Greenlaw looked this week?

"I thought he looked real good, had a real good week."

He was not right against the Bengals. Why was he not on the injury report when he wasn't healthy?

"He's just been sore and had wear and tear and banged up throughout a number of weeks. Shoulders were sore. He's been like that for three weeks and that's why I don't remember the injury report from two weeks ago, but I believe you on it because he didn't have a bad injury."

What's your process with Trent? Will you just monitor is this going to be a game time decision?

"It's going to be questionable. I'm not talking anymore about our guys' injuries. He's questionable."

What did you think of DL Chase Young this week enough to encourage you that he could have a big role on Sunday?

"Same thing you see from any D-lineman who comes. I mean it's not a big deal with D-lineman in terms of learning a ton of things. They still got to learn some stuff so they're not out of spots. But D-lineman is probably one of the easier positions to get in there. He looked healthy and definitely one of our top eight and we usually dress eight."

The way that the defensive ends rush is that similar to what he did in college at Ohio State?

"I don't totally remember going back to Ohio State. I mean our guys rush the same way everyone does really on third down. Our guys just play the run a little bit more in a pass rushing way. We attack first and sometimes people are in attack stances based off of situational ball, running and pass situations, based off the calls. Our guys are pretty much in attack situations every down. So that's really the difference. But everyone's in that at times when you want to rush the quarterback, people are going."

Has OL Jon Feliciano pretty much fit the role that you envisioned when he got here? It appears that he has in terms of being able to replace him anywhere across the middle.

"Yeah, he got in a number of weeks ago, I want to say versus the Giants. He wasn't able to practice that whole week and got cleared the day before the game and came in and did a real good job in that game and hasn't been in much since then. We were going to start playing him a little bit just to get him in there regardless because of how consistent he has been. Then this happened with Banks, so now he's got his opportunity, but we've been real happy with Jon."

Klint Kubiak commends Kyle Shanahan after departing 49ers for Saints

By David Bonilla
Feb 15

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

By David Bonilla
Feb 13

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
Feb 13

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
