  49ers | San Francisco's Week 2 injury report    Fri Sep 18, 05:46 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee) and CB Jason Verrett (hamstring) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 2 against the New York Jets. DL Dee Ford (neck) did not practice for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 18, and is listed as questionable. CB Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion), WR Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) and OL Ben Garland (ankle) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Jordan Reed will get the start for Kittle, but Kendrick Bourne and Brandon Aiyuk should also get a potential boost in targets this week. Ford will have a chance to tee off on Sam Darnold if he plays.

  49ers | George Kittle to be GTD    Fri Sep 18, 12:21 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle's (knee) status for Week 2 will come down to a game-time decision on Sunday, Sept. 20, general manager John Lynch said in a Friday radio interview.

Footballguys view: At least the 49ers are playing on the east coast. Kittle usually grits his teeth and plays through injuries but the 49ers would be smart to let Jordan Reed get his targets this week. If Kittle is out, Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne are better flex plays against a poor Jets secondary.

  49ers | George Kittle to miss practice    Wed Sep 16, 04:06 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle (knee) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: Kyle Shanahan said that Kittle would not practice all week long. However, there is still a chance Kittle plays in Week 2 against the Jets. If he's out there, we recommend playing him as you normally would...even though he won't be at full strength.

  49ers | Mohamed Sanu signing with Niners    Tue Sep 15, 06:50 PM

Free-agent WR Mohamed Sanu (Patriots) is signing an undisclosed contract with the San Francisco 49ers, according to his agent Tuesday, Sept. 15.

Footballguys view: Sanu failed to impress during his time with the Patriots last year and couldn't make the team this year in training camp. The Patriots have a group of wide receivers lacking punch...just like the 49ers do. Sanu's ankle injury held him back but with the 49ers he might just have to play a larger role despite not being himself. Deebo Samuel is on Injured Reserve and the 49ers are desperate for help.

  49ers | Deebo Samuel to IR    Sat Sep 12, 05:09 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Sept. 12.

Footballguys view: This means Samuel will be out at least the first three weeks of the regular season. The team is going to be without him in Week 1 and rookie first-round pick Brandon Aiyuk is questionable. They've got one of the most banged up WR corps in the NFL.

  49ers | Tevin Coleman's Week 1 status in limbo    Fri Sep 11, 06:07 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Tevin Coleman (non-injury) was held out of practice Friday, Sept. 11, due to a pre-existing condition (sickle-cell trait), and head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that it will be up to Coleman if he wants to play in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals if the AQI (Air Quality Index) continues to hover around 150.

Footballguys view: Coleman may not go this weekend, but he wasn't in lineups anyway. If he's out, Raheem Mostert and Jerick McKinnon both become better starts, but the larger story here is make sure this game is on track to get played before setting lineups on Sunday.

  49ers | San Francisco's injury report for Week 1    Fri Sep 11, 05:24 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (foot) and CB Jason Verrett (hamstring) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals. WR Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) and OL Ben Garland (ankle) were limited in practice Friday, Sept. 11, and are listed as questionable. RB Tevin Coleman (non-injury) was not given a practice designation Friday but is expected to play.

Footballguys view: It's good news that Aiyuk has a chance to play, but he'll face Patrick Peterson at least some of the time if he does, so it's just best to leave him on the bench and be happy if he goes off outside of your lineup.
