Reggie Bush will not make the trip to Pittsburgh

Sep 18, 2015 at 10:44 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers will head to Pittsburgh today as the team prepares for their Sunday morning game against the Steelers. According to head coach Jim Tomsula, one player that will not make the trip is RB Reggie Bush, who is still recovering from the left calf injury that he suffered on Monday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Bush was injured during the first quarter of that game and, after struggling to get off the field, was eventually carted to the locker room.

On Tuesday, he had an MRI at Stanford which revealed that there was no tear involved. While he is currently walking without a limp, Bush is receiving electro-stimulation therapy to the calf. Yesterday, he was the only 49ers player listed on the team's injury report.

In addition to Bush, WR Bruce Ellington has an ankle injury but will practice and is likely to make the trip with the team.

Jarryd Hayne will be Carlos Hyde's backup on Sunday. Mike Davis will be activated for the game as well.

It seems it's time for your weekly Jimmy Garoppolo update. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been sidelined since suffering a broken foot on December 4. However, there is a slight chance Garoppolo could return and suit up for the playoffs, likely serving as rookie Brock Purdy's backup. That probably won't be this week, though. Last week, head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that the quarterback probably wouldn't be ready for an NFC Championship Game appearance. However, Garoppolo suiting up for the Super Bowl, should the 49ers make it that far, might be more likely. On Monday, Shanahan was once again asked about Garoppolo's recovery and

Brock Purdy is preparing to start his second-ever NFL playoff game. Sunday's Divisional Round matchup between his San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys will only be the rookie quarterback's seventh career NFL start and his eighth game appearance with extended playing time. Purdy took over for an injured Jimmy Garoppolo during Week 13. At the time, the 49ers were riding a four-game win streak. The winning continued with Purdy under center. San Francisco's last loss came on October 23, 2022, and the team has won 11 consecutive games since. Purdy may be a rookie, but he has played with the poise and skill of a savvy veteran. He has done everything asked of him, shedding the "Mr. Irrelevant" label that came with being the last overall pick in the 2022 NFL

The Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts still hope to speak with Ryans about their head coach vacancies. Right now, Ryans and the 49ers are focused on their NFC Championship Game opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles. Players know their time with the defensive coordinator is running out, though.
