Safety Tashaun Gipson was on head coach Kyle Shanahan's lengthy list of San Francisco 49ers players who will not practice on Wednesday, the first on-field session ahead of the team's regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. Gipson is sidelined with a quad strain and will not recover in time to play this weekend.

"Gip ended up—I think we got it yesterday—he had a quad strain, so that could be anywhere seven to 10 days," Shanahan informed reporters. "So the odds—that can heal faster, too—but just with our situation, the odds aren't there."

The other 49ers players not expected to practice on Wednesday are defensive tackle Arik Armstead (foot, knee), running back Christian McCaffrey (calf), tight end Ross Dwelley (ankle), guard Jon Feliciano (back), cornerback Ambry Thomas (hand), and safety Ji'Ayir Brown (knee).

Regarding Feliciano's status, Shanahan said, "New thing came up, but we feel pretty good about it, so we'll just see how the week goes out."

Running back Elijah Mitchell is dealing with an illness and will also be absent from practice.

Shanahan further announced that quarterback Sam Darnold will start against the Rams, allowing for some rest for the 49ers' all-time single-season passing leader, Brock Purdy.

Ian Rapoport didn't offer much of an update on the ongoing contract negotiations between the San Francisco 49ers and their standout wide receiver, Brandon Aiyuk. However, the NFL insider emphasized one thing: The team is not entertaining trade discussions at this juncture. Reacting to Aiyuk's decision to unfollow the 49ers on Instagram, Rapoport couldn't help but chuckle at the latest development. This practice has become commonplace among players who are unhappy with their contract situations. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel similarly took this action in 2022 before requesting to be traded just before the draft. Things have yet to escalate that far with Aiyuk, but Rapoport sees his

7-round mock draft from The Athletic sees 49ers fortifying defense early

By David Bonilla
Apr 17

Analyst Dane Brugler recently revealed his seven-round mock draft for The Athletic, forecasting all 257 selections in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft, set to kick off next week. "Piecing together a mock like this is time consuming, but I enjoy the exercise, because it allows me to focus on each team's needs, organizational trends and prospect-team pairings that make sense based on '30' visits, league buzz and overall interest," Brugler wrote. Most expect the 49ers to address the trenches early in the draft, and Brugler has the team doing that. It's just not on the offensive side of the football. In fact, Brugler doesn't have San Francisco
