49ers vs. Jaguars pregame: Trent Williams, Deebo Samuel return; Chase Young makes debut

Two San Francisco 49ers players, Deebo Samuel and Trent Williams, are set to return to the football field after sustaining injuries on October 15 against the Cleveland Browns. Samuel has been sidelined for the last two games with a hairline fracture in his shoulder, while Williams has been working through an ankle injury.

Samuel practiced all week and wasn't on the team's Friday injury report, indicating he was set to play today against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Williams' status was less certain. While he returned to the practice field on Thursday, he was officially listed as "questionable" for the Week 10 contest. Williams and head coach Kyle Shanahan sounded less than optimistic about his chances of playing.

"I think he's real questionable to be playing," Shanahan said.

Williams added, "It's up in the air; it really is."

With the veteran left tackle ailing, the 49ers should have Jaylon Moore ready to go in case Williams needs a breather during the action. The team has a lot of confidence in the backup offensive lineman.

"I think Jaylon's played his butt off," Williams told reporters on Friday before the 49ers departed for Jacksonville. "I've been really, really impressed with the way he's performed. Obviously, I watched it closely the last few games, so I've been really impressed with his progress that he's made from last year to this year, even from the preseason to now. He details his work. He's definitely a young, improving player, and I got a lot of faith in him if he had to do it again."

Also listed as "questionable" on Friday was defensive tackle Javon Hargrave, who had a knee issue flare up during Thursday's practice. However, he is active and set to play.

Chase Young's 49ers debut

The 49ers traded a 2024 compensatory pick to the Washington Commanders for Chase Young. The defensive end will make his red and gold debut against the Jaguars.

"He's an impressive player, and he's been playing well here of late," general manager John Lynch recently stated. "He's been playing a lot here of late as well. We've always said that the D-line is really the engine that drives, not just this defense, but this team. And we like our D-line, but we love adding to it as well.

"We always want more from that unit, and I think it was somewhat of a no-brainer when Chase was there, available."

Young is anticipated to contribute significantly in his debut. He joins a formidable defensive line that includes his former Ohio State teammate, Nick Bosa, along with Javon Hargrave and Arik Armstead. The team looks forward to Young's substantial impact on the field.

Lynch added, "I think he ought to be raring and ready to go, and we're excited to get him out there."

49ers Notebook: Nick Bosa lobbies for 49ers to keep Chase Young; Kyle Juszczyk addresses his future; Has anyone on the team watched the Super Bowl yet?

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's

49ers insider weighs in on Deebo Samuel vs. Brandon Aiyuk debate

Brock Purdy has just completed his second NFL season, which means he's under contract with the San Francisco 49ers for two more years. The team is allowed to begin negotiating a contract extension after the 2024 season. With a salary cap hit of around $1 million next season, Purdy's contract provides the 49ers with some flexibility, allowing them to allocate funds elsewhere on the roster. However, the 49ers are undoubtedly looking ahead, aware that Purdy will eventually demand a larger share of the team's cap space. With the next significant contract anticipated for wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, a debate has arisen regarding the long-term likelihood of retaining both Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel. With some big financial decisions looming, it might only be feasible to

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond. Therefore, it's no surprise that Warner felt deeply for his teammate and friend when Greenlaw suffered a torn Achilles in the second quarter of Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him.

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
