San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show this afternoon and provided some updates on Dre Greenlaw. Earlier today, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reported that the linebacker would undergo surgery and miss a good chunk of time. The 49ers general manager confirmed the report. "So, he is going to have surgery," Lynch said. "They got a couple of opinions on the groin. It's a core muscle injury that Dre's been dealing with here for the last couple of weeks, and he did a great job kind of battling through it. [He] had a big impact on the game against Detroit. "It was actually on the pick-six [off



John Lynch says 49ers want Brandon Aiyuk to 'really assert himself,' become a true No. 1 receiver

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'



49ers-Packers: John Lynch encouraged about Trey Sermon's recovery, describes Elijah Mitchell's status as 'very questionable'

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR this morning and provided an update on the team's running back situation ahead of Sunday's primetime matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Rookie Elijah Mitchell hasn't practiced yet this week after sustaining a shoulder injury against the Philadelphia Eagles, lowering his chances of playing this weekend. "Elijah Mitchell, the rookie who's been really good for us, our sixth-round pick, he got his shoulder [hurt] trying to get it in the goal line on one of those runs," Lynch said on the Murph & Mac show. "He's a tough kid. I can't tell you how tough he is. You see it in his running style and the same in terms of his want to get back on the field. But we've got to make sure he's alright, so I think that



49ers' John Lynch: Nick Bosa is going to get better this season, Aaron Banks will become a difference-maker

Nick Bosa certainly doesn't look like he's coming off a devastating knee injury. Instead, he seems like he's picking up from where he left off during his 2019 NFL Rookie of the Year campaign. Bosa has three sacks through two games this season and is again proving to be a force on defense. And maybe we haven't seen anything yet. "Nick's just — we all know it — he's a difference-maker when he's out there," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "We missed him in a big way when he was gone last year. He's a difference-maker. I don't care who's out there. I mean, [the Packers have] got an All-Pro in David Bakhtiari, who's not playing, and Bakhtiari would have his hands full with Bosa. And that's not a slight
