San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after today's practice and provided an update on Javon Kinlaw. The second-year defensive tackle has been dealing with a setback in his knee, an injury that occurred on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys and forced him to miss the last two games of the season. Kinlaw was officially listed as "doubtful" for Sunday on the team's injury report. With the knee issues continuing to resurface, Shanahan was asked if injured reserve is a possibility for the defensive tackle. "Not yet," the coach responded. "I mean, he's still got a chance to play this week, so we're still trying to decide that. So, not yet." General manager John Lynch didn't sound too optimistic about Kinlaw's



Breaking down the 49ers' CB depth chart if Emmanuel Moseley can't play vs. Eagles

The injury bug has hit the 49ers hard over the first week of the NFL season, especially in the secondary, as CB Jason Verrett is already ruled out for the season with a torn ACL and CB Emmanuel Moseley seems unlikely to play again in Week 2 vs Philadelphia. Moseley, who was in uniform Friday, was listed as doubtful on the injury list for the game with a knee injury. The injuries to the top corners on the team have prompted the 49ers to sign two new faces over the past two weeks: CB Josh Norman and CB Dre Kirkpatrick. Norman was signed on September 6th and was listed as an inactive against the Lions in Week 1, although head coach Kyle Shanahan said that the corner was ready to play if needed. He is expected to take on a much larger role in Week 2 with



Why Kyle Shanahan feels the 2021 49ers O-line may be his best yet

The offensive line for the San Francisco 49ers hasn't been a huge focus for the team since Kyle Shanahan arrived as the head coach in 2017. In fact, the team has only drafted two offensive lineman within the first four rounds of the draft over the past five years: RT Mike McGlinchey in 2018 and G Aaron Banks this year in the second round. However, the team has made significant strides in other moves to improve the offensive line, trading a third and a fifth round pick for star LT Trent Williams during last year's draft before signing him to an extension this offseason, and picking up Alex Mack as the starting center this offseason as well. With Shanahan's run/play-action oriented offense, a strong offensive line is necessary to work both the edges



The lesson George Kittle, 49ers learned from closer-than-it-should-have-been win vs. Lions

The 49ers won in a thrilling, yet somewhat alarming way Sunday, as they went to Detroit to face the Lions and wound up victorious with a 41-33 final score. During the first quarter and a half of the game, the Lions kept it fairly close, losing only 14-10, but the 49ers pulled away in the second and third quarters, leading 38-10 at one point. In fact, with just under six minutes remaining, the 49ers led by 24 points, but a collapse, influenced by multiple defensive injuries, gave the Lions a chance to tie the game, as they reached the SF 24 yard line down just eight points, but failed to score. After the game, George Kittle shared the lesson that he and the team learned from this surprisingly close win, speaking to the level of talent in the
