San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Arik Armstead was dealing with a foot injury last week, leading to his designation as "questionable" for this past Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Armstead played in the Week 13 contest but eventually exited due to foot and knee injuries.

On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that the 49ers were still gathering information about Armstead's injury, promising more information later in the week.

Shanahan provided an update on Wednesday, saying, "It's not ACL, MCL, nothing I would be able to remember to tell you guys. I'd be surprised if he's ready this week. Still haven't ruled him out yet, but it might be a week or two."

When asked if the 49ers fear a long-term injury for Armstead, Shanahan responded, "I hope not. I can't rule him out for this week, but the fact that I'm saying already that I'd be surprised if he played this week, it's got to see how long it lasts."

As for the rest of the injuries, tight end Ross Dwelley suffered a high-ankle sprain and will miss multiple weeks. Guard Spencer Burford is dealing with a knee injury and will not practice. Cornerback Darrell Luter Jr. is working through a hamstring injury and will not practice.

Shanahan revealed that running back Elijah Mitchell emerged from Sunday's game a little banged up. He is dealing with a knee injury and will not practice.

"His knee was sore, just still sore," Shanahan said of his running back. "But nothing big right now. Just still sore from the game."

Wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud is working his way back from a rib injury and will be a limited practice participant on Wednesday.

The 49ers are preparing for their Week 14 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The two teams will clash on Sunday at Levi's Stadium. It is the second meeting between the NFC West rivals, with the 49ers winning 31-13 on November 23.

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

By David Bonilla

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

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.

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
