  49ers | Nick Bosa out of boot    Wed Aug 14, 06:11 PM

San Francisco 49ers DE Nick Bosa (ankle) is no longer wearing a walking boot and participated in some light rehab work Wednesday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: Good news for the 49ers here. Bosa won't play in the preseason but reports out of camp indicate that he could be ready for the start of the regular season. The 49ers travel this week for joint practices with the Broncos, and we don't expect Bosa to do much of anything in the Mile High City.

  49ers | Jalen Hurd impresses in debut    Sun Aug 11, 02:49 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Jalen Hurd caught three of his five targets for 31 yards and two touchdowns in the team's preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Hurd ran over a defender at the goal line and presented some interesting "big slot" possibilities with Trent Taylor's exit due to a broken bone in his foot. He could be a DFS very low owned player in Week 1 lineups with big upside against the Bucs secondary.

  49ers | Update on Trent Taylor    Sun Aug 11, 01:23 AM

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Trent Taylor (foot) has a chance to be ready for the regular-season opener, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

San Francisco 49ers OT Shon Coleman (ankle) was carted off with his right ankle in an air cast during the preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys Saturday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Coleman was set to the team's swing tackle after they let Gerry Gilliam go. He's likely gone for most if not all of the 2019 season. They could turn back to him instead of trusting sixth-round pick Justin Skule in that important role.

  49ers | Surgery for Trent Taylor    Sat Aug 10, 10:12 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Trent Taylor (foot) had surgery to insert a screw into his foot Friday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Taylor could be back for Week 1, as the team is saying the fracture wasn't complete, but is more likely to miss at least a few games. Richie James or Kendrick Bourne could make the team if he ends up on injured reserve with a designation to return, and rookies Jalen Hurd and Deebo Samuel have a better chance of starting Week 1 against the vulnerable Bucs secondary.

  49ers | Raheem Mostert being checked out    Sat Aug 10, 09:56 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (concussion) exited the preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys and is being evaluated for a concussion Saturday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Mostert is a good name to file away because his special teams prowess will win him a roster spot in a backfield full of injury prone players, and he was good in limited action last year. We will watch his concussion recovery to see if it indicates a severe concussion or worry carried into the regular season. If he suffers another this year, it will be a multi-week absence.

  49ers | Deebo Samuel playing big    Thu Aug 8, 09:41 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel's 'aggressive' style of play has impressed head coach Kyle Shanahan, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

Footballguys view: Samuel is trying to stand out in a group of receivers that is blending together and failing to impress Shanahan right now. He's worth a late round pick in deep PPR leagues.

  49ers | Jerick McKinnon set to have PRP injection    Thu Aug 8, 03:38 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) was held out of practice Thursday, Aug. 8, due to soreness in his knee after practicing the last two days. Head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters McKinnon will receive a platelet rich plasma injection in his knee and miss the next two weeks of practice before returning to practice.

Footballguys view: Two weeks might be a bit optimistic. McKinnon is no sure bet to be ready for the start of the regular season. The 49ers will continue to see Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida compete for the top spot on the depth chart.

San Francisco 49ers DE Nick Bosa (ankle) will miss the entire preseason, and he'll be re-evaluated before Week 1, according to general manager John Lynch.

Footballguys view: This is a high-ankle sprain and that could linger into the regular season. Lynch did not leave out the possibility that Bosa could miss time when the games count. We'll know more about his status when the preseason is over.

  49ers | Jerick McKinnon activated from PUP list    Tue Aug 6, 01:00 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) was activated from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Aug. 6.

Footballguys view: McKinnon might not be ready to play or practice at full speed right away and has to be considered the #3 back right now and a possible healthy scratch on game days to begin the season, which might make his 3.7 million dollar salary too much to carry into the season.
