The San Francisco 49ers appear to have emerged from Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles in relatively good health. However, they were not entirely unscathed. Head coach Kyle Shanahan, speaking to reporters after the dominant 42-19 win, provided injury updates.

"[DT Arik] Armstead had a foot, didn't return," Shanahan said. "[TE Ross] Dwelley had ankle, didn't return."

After practicing just once last week, the defensive tackle entered Week 13 listed as "questionable" for the clash against the Eagles. However, he was not among the 49ers' seven inactive players and started the game.

"Yeah, he had to gut it out," Shanahan said. "I think he went out in the second half. He was in and out throughout the game, but I wasn't told he was officially out and done, I want to say early in the fourth quarter."

After the second snap of the game, Armstead was noticeably uncomfortable. However, it sounds like the defensive tackle should be fine.

"Wasn't feeling too great, but I think it was important for me to be out there and help my team," Armstead said. "I'll get some treatment and be fine."

As for Dwelley, we will likely learn more about his status on Monday.

John Lynch provides updates on Jauan Jennings, 49ers' front office moves

Jauan Jennings is poised to become a restricted free agent, offering the San Francisco 49ers various avenues to retain the talented wide receiver. One such option involves signing Jennings to a long-term contract, a possibility that general manager John Lynch openly acknowledged as a possibility while speaking to reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. If that doesn't happen, the 49ers can tender Jennings, giving the team the right to match any more lucrative offers from other teams. Alternatively, they could attach the tendered offer to a draft pick, a costlier approach when it comes to guaranteed salary, but one that would force interested teams to surrender compensation if the 49ers opt not to match competing offers. All of those options

According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, the San Francisco 49ers have completed interviews with former Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley and 49ers defensive passing game specialist Nick Sorensen for the team's vacant defensive coordinator position. The 49ers are seeking to fill the void left by Steve Wilks, who was dismissed after the team's defeat in Super Bowl 58. Wilks served only one season as San Francisco's defensive coordinator, during which the unit ranked eighth in yards allowed, third in points allowed, third in rushing yards allowed, and 14th in passing yards allowed

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.

John Lynch, 49ers exploring options following Dre Greenlaw's injury

By David Bonilla

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.
