Kyle Shanahan wants Brandon Aiyuk to earn his spot back, says receiver isn't in 49ers' doghouse

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR's Murph & Mac show this morning and threw cold water on the heated rumors that wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk is in his doghouse. The second-year player had an impressive rookie campaign last season, and high expectations prefaced his sophomore NFL season. In Week 1, Aiyuk split playing time with Trent Sherfield and wasn't targeted against the Detroit Lions. It had nothing to do with the young receiver being in Shanahan's doghouse, though. The coach wanted to dispel those rumors and once again explain Aiyuk's reduced role. "No. It's not a doghouse. It's just a pretty simple thing," Shanahan said. "Trent Sherfield has played at a very high level every single day for the entire training camp. Aiyuk

San Fransisco 49ers third-year wideout Deebo Samuel broke out onto the scene once again during Week 1 against the Detroit Lions last Sunday. The wide receiver put up impressive numbers with 9 catches and a touchdown for a total of 189 yards, the second-highest receiving total by any Niners player on opening week. This comes as a relief to San Fransisco as Samuel once again looked like the promising player he previously showed flashes of whenever he was healthy. In his rookie season, back in 2019, Deebo was touted as one of the best receivers out of the draft right next to A.J. Brown, DK Metcalf, and Terry McLaurin as the blossoming rookie put up 802 yards on 57 catches. However, the very next season, 2020, the injury bug that hit the rest of the Niners roster affected Deebo

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show this afternoon. He was asked about the situation with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, which was probably blown out of proportion this week. Entering the season, expectations were high for the second-year wideout, who had an impressive rookie campaign. Aiyuk was seen as a potential number one receiver for the team. Instead, on Sunday, that turned out to be third-year receiver Deebo Samuel, who racked up an impressive 189 receiving yards and a touchdown on 9 catches. Aiyuk split time with Trent Sherfield and didn't see a single target in the game. It wasn't the sophomore debut most were expecting. As a result, some started to wonder if Aiyuk might be in the 49ers'
