Following the San Francisco 49ers' victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, head coach Kyle Shanahan didn't have any injury updates to declare. However, he noted that Monday's medical evaluations of players could change that.

Shanahan jumped on a conference call Monday afternoon, providing additional updates.

Tackle Colton McKivitz's ankle was rolled up on during the game, and he has some knee soreness. The coach has labeled him day-to-day.

When asked if Jaylon Moore can play right tackle if needed, Shanahan said, "He does have that flexibility. I mean, we would discuss both [Moore and Matt Pryor]. Once the season starts, [offensive line coach] Chris [Foerster] reps those guys at all the spots. I mean, not as much at their off spots, but he covers us for all those situations because you never know where a year can go.

"So it's always a possibility to swing all those guys. There's spots we prefer them at, but we always have contingency plans that he's constantly trying, when he can, to get him reps with that during the week."

As for the existing injuries heading into Sunday's game, guard Aaron Banks remains out with a turf toe injury. Linebacker Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles is considered day-to-day with an ankle injury.

After the win over the Jaguars, defensive tackle Arik Armstead made it clear that he didn't appreciate the actions of opposing offensive lineman Brandon Scherff.

"He tripped me, kicked me in my knee, and kind of messed up my day," Armstead said, adding that he considered it "a dirty play."

Shanahan provided an update on his veteran defensive lineman, saying, "Arik was a little sore, but he made it through good, ended up being fine."

Tackle Trent Williams made it through Sunday's game unscathed. It was his first game back since suffering an ankle injury against the Cleveland Browns on October 15.

"Trent, like I said last night, checked out today the same way," Shanahan shared. "No setbacks, and hopefully, he'll continue to get better this week."

On Saturday, the 49ers placed Drake Jackson on injured reserve. However, the team hopes the second-year defensive end can return this season.

"Drake, he has knee tendinitis that is bothering him," Shanahan explained. "Hopefully, the injection he got should help it go away. He's got to rest for at least a month here, and he'll have a chance, if it recovers the right way, to hopefully come back this year."

49ers' Kyle Shanahan calls claim he can't win a big game 'extremely inaccurate'

By David Bonilla
Feb 14

Kyle Shanahan has faced disappointment in three Super Bowls—twice as the San Francisco 49ers' head coach and once as the offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons. He lost all three appearances in dramatic fashion. The first two games saw the coach's teams suffer significant late-game collapses. Sunday's showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs was lost in overtime, despite Shanahan's 49ers seeming in control for much of the contest. It was the coach's second time losing a Super Bowl to the Chiefs. Obviously, three losses in the big game will raise questions about one's ability to get a team over the hump. This is the narrative Shanahan will confront this offseason and beyond, until he guides the 49ers to a championship victory. "I mean, you'd

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

The injury to Dre Greenlaw during Super Bowl 58 dealt a significant blow to the San Francisco 49ers' defense. The impact of his absence was obvious, as evidenced by Fred Warner's emotional reaction on the sideline after his teammate and friend was carted off to the locker room. This hurts to watch so much.

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
