Chip Kelly says no lineup changes planned following bye

Nov 2, 2016 at 10:55 AM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly met with the media today and stated that there were no plans to make any lineup changes following the team's sixth-straight loss and heading into Sunday's home game against the New Orleans Saints.

"Aside from the move we made at quarterback two weeks ago, like I said earlier, everybody has played," Kelly said. "It's not like we haven't played somebody. I mean, everybody that is eligible in the 46 is contributed in some shape or fashion. We rotate our defensive line. Our linebackers are playing. We rotate the outside linebackers. Our secondary is depending on our packages. Sometimes we get four or five and even six [defensive backs] in at the same time. All of our receivers play. Our running backs have rotated.

"You've seen all of those guys so it's not, 'Hey, we need to insert this guy in the lineup because I don't think we've given him an opportunity.' I think everybody's had an opportunity to play at this point in time."



Kelly also stated that RB Carlos Hyde will practice again in a blue non-contact jersey, but it is up to the medical staff whether or not he is cleared to play on Sunday. It doesn't matter how he looks in practice to the coaching staff. OLB Aaron Lynch will not practice and will miss his second straight practice this week.

Hyde's shoulder injury occurred during the third quarter of the 49ers' October 16 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Mike Davis replaced Hyde while the 49ers' starting running back was on the sideline. The 49ers promoted RB DuJuan Harris from the practice squad for their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He rushed for 39 yards on 11 carries in that game.

Lynch suffered a left ankle injury against the Buccaneers. Lynch left the Buccaneers game after his legs were buried by players under a pileup during a tackle.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan says Jimmy Garoppolo had his 'best spring,' discusses Trey Lance's progress

Jimmy Garoppolo is trying to fend off anyone from overtaking him on the depth chart — specifically, the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance. It sounds like he put in a solid effort during organized team activities, which ended today. The veteran quarterback will look to continue impressing his coaches in training camp at the end of July. Garoppolo is slated to be the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback when the team kicks off against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on September 12. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today and expressed how pleased he is with Garoppolo's performance during the offseason program. "I think Jimmy had his best spring

Tarvarius Moore took to social media Thursday night to announce that the surgery he underwent for his recent Achilles injury was a success. Moore sustained the injury at practice on Monday, June 7. He was one of two 49ers players to suffer a serious injury during the Monday practice, along with offensive lineman Justin Skule (torn ACL). According to 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, Moore's injury was of the non-contact variety and took place with no other players in the vicinity. "T-Moore hurt his Achilles on air. No one was by him, he backpedaled and he went to go break forward and it just gave out," Shanahan told reporters Wednesday. Here's what Moore posted on Instagram regarding his



Window is open for Trey Lance to win 49ers QB job, but it won't be easy, says Shanahan

Trey Lance won't be automatically relegated to a backup role at quarterback this season just because he's a rookie, but he'll have his work cut out for him if he wants to prove he should be the starter over Jimmy Garoppolo. The widespread assumption is that the veteran Garoppolo will start for the 49ers this season while the first-round pick Lance learns from the sidelines. But 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan won't be approaching the situation from that perspective once training camp gets underway in late July, at least not initially. Shanahan spoke about that and a number of other topics during a conversation with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on the most recent episode of Kawakami's TK Show
