Second-year player Nick Zakelj is done for the year. Head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that the offensive lineman is slated for season-ending surgery on a torn biceps.

The injury occurred during Sunday's 34-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, with the coach saying, "It wasn't like your normal tear. It was a little one that was high, and [he] complained about it all day. We sent him in (for an MRI), and it had a slight tear, and got a couple of opinions. They said it's only going to get worse, so we had to do the surgery."

Update: According to the NFL transaction wire, the 49ers officially placed Zakelj on the injured reserve list.

Right tackle Colton McKivitz, who is dealing with ankle and knee injuries, will practice on Wednesday, albeit as a limited participant.

Shanahan also confirmed that guard Aaron Banks has been ruled out for this weekend. Banks sustained a turf toe injury during the October 30 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The 49ers are holding three practices ahead of Sunday's Week 11 home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers are coming off a 20-6 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

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.

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

Graziano: Salary cap situation may force 49ers to consider trading Brandon Aiyuk

All eyes will be on Brandon Aiyuk's contract situation this offseason. As the San Francisco 49ers cleaned out their locker rooms last week, the wide receiver was asked if he hopes to remain with the team that drafted him, to which he replied, "If that's the right move, yeah." The "right move" means securing a contract extension that places Aiyuk among the highest-paid receivers in the NFL. The 49ers have already invested significantly in Aiyuk's teammate, Deebo Samuel. But can they afford to retain both? Aiyuk is entering his fifth NFL season, and the 49ers exercised the fifth-year option for the receive, keeping him under contract through the end of the 2024 season. If the
