Shanahan: Injury issues and Trent Sherfield's emergence led to lack of time for 49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk vs Lions

Brandon Aiyuk's lack of playing time at wide receiver was one of the biggest surprises for the 49ers in their 41-33 Week 1 win over the Detroit Lions, and it may or may not continue to be an issue to keep an eye on in the weeks to come. Aiyuk was impressive as a rookie last season (60 receptions for 748 yards and five touchdowns) after being selected in Round 1 of the 2020 NFL Draft out of Arizona State and was thought by many to be a candidate to take an even bigger step this season. But his playing time in the 49ers' season opener was limited as he had zero targets on offense while returning one punt for seven yards. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke after the game about Aiyuk's lack of participation, saying that a recent hamstring injury was part of the



49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo says Brandon Aiyuk will be ready when his number is called

When the San Francisco 49ers beat the Detroit Lions last Sunday, there were a few surprises, including wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk only playing 25 snaps in the game, having no passes come his way. 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was asked about Aiyuk's lack of targets. "You know, it's one of those things that, our offense, you see it every season; it's a week-by-week offense," Garoppolo said Tuesday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "One guy, this week is his number. Next week, it's the other guy. It's just one of those things that you can't get too caught up in it.



Kyle Shanahan: 49ers' Brandon Aiyuk needs 'to be a lot better' than Trent Sherfield to earn more playing time

The 49ers have a conundrum on their hands. At least it seems so, with the constant hesitancy around Brandon Aiyuk from head coach Kyle Shanahan. Brandon Aiyuk was the 49ers' promising 1st-round pick from just a year ago, catching sixty passes for 748 yards and seven combined touchdowns while starting only 11 games, being an explosive piece in both the run and pass game. However, this past Sunday, when the 49ers opened their season against the Detroit Lions, Aiyuk was not involved in either aspect, catching no passes and getting no rushes, which raised eyes about the 49ers' offensive game plan. While Aiyuk nursed a hamstring injury throughout the offseason, there was optimism that the second-year receiver would return and play a prominent role as the



Brandon Aiyuk responding well to 49ers' WR competition, says Trent Sherfield

There has been a lot of conversation this week surrounding wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. There were high expectations for the second-year San Francisco 49ers player. However, in the regular-season opener, Aiyuk surprisingly split playing time with new 49ers wideout Trent Sherfield. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has explained that much of that is due to Aiyuk's earlier hamstring injury. That presented Sherfield with an opportunity, and the former Arizona Cardinal took advantage. The 49ers' offensive coordinator wanted to dispel any rumors that the young receiver might be in the team's doghouse. "In-house with the 49ers, it's not like he's in the doghouse at all or anything,"
