The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 11 contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that second-year offensive lineman Nick Zakelj suffered a torn biceps in Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars and would undergo season-ending surgery. According to the NFL transaction wire, the 49ers officially placed him on injured reserve on Wednesday.

Shanahan provided insight into the nature of Zakelj's injury, stating, "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."

Shanahan also ruled out guard Aaron Banks for this weekend's game. The offensive lineman sustained a turf toe injury on October 30 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Right tackle Colton McKivitz suffered ankle and knee injuries in Sunday's game. He was a limited practice participant, and his status remains day-to-day.

Below are Wednesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Buccaneers, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

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.

Losing Dre Greenlaw during the Super Bowl was a blow to the San Francisco 49ers, not just because of his on-field impact but also for the leadership he brings to the defense. "Dre's the heartbeat of our defense, him and [LB] Fred [Warner] in there, and how they feed off each other," tight end George Kittle said after the Super Bowl loss. "... We lose a guy like Dre, it's tough. He's just such a fantastic football player, and he's everything that the Niners stand for." Greenlaw tore his Achilles in the second quarter of the game, a devastating outcome for a player who battled through multiple injuries during the season, ranging from ankle, hamstring, shoulder, and hip issues.

Report suggests 2024 salary cap could near $250 million

Speculation surrounding the 2024 salary cap indicates that it might be in the area of $242 million. That's the number that salary-cap site OverTheCap.com has been working with, which, according to their estimations, puts the San Francisco 49ers about $12.38 over the projected cap. The team could obviously use more wiggle room to sign wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk to a long-term deal. San Francisco may need to either restructure the contracts of some high-priced stars or make some difficult roster decisions to make that happen. RELATED: Graziano: Salary cap situation may
