As the San Francisco 49ers make their way through the preseason, head coach Kyle Shanahan has been cautious about keeping his players safe before Week 1 of the regular season. While navigating the irregular training camp schedule, a few players are set to miss time due to injury.
"It's kind of been bothersome to me," Shanahan said on Monday. "I think (the hamstring strain injuries) all come after our days off. I think it's been a real challenge of this camp, more than any we've been in with just how it's spaced out with these games and our day off rules and to really get in a groove for guys, once you get about two days in, they're getting a day off, sometimes two days off. So I think our biggest challenge has been these off days and how to come back from them."
Here is a list of San Francisco's most recent injury updates:
TE Charlie Woerner (abdomen): The 49ers activated Woerner from the PUP list on Sunday, August 14th.
DB Jimmie Ward (hamstring): Shanahan said on Monday that Ward suffered a "pretty bad" hamstring injury during Sunday's practice and there's a chance he'll miss Week 1 of the regular season.DT Hassan Ridgeway (quadriceps): Shanahan said on Monday that he hopes to get Ridgeway "back in practice soon," in the next couple days or by the team's preseason Week 2 game against the Minnesota Vikings.OT Daniel Brunskill (hamstring): During the team's preseason contest against the Packers, Brunskill suffered a hamstring strain and will miss a few weeks of the preseason schedule.OT Mike McGlinchey (knee): While playing against the Packers, McGlinchey suffered "slight irritation in his knee," per Shanahan. The offensive lineman will be sidelined for the team's practices.LB Curtis Robinson (groin): Robinson suffered a groin strain against Green Bay. "He'll most likely miss this week," Shanahan said on Saturday.DL Drake Jackson (shoulder): Jackson left the Packers game late in the second quarter with a shoulder injury, however, was a full participant in Sunday's practice.WR Danny Gray (hip, back): On Saturday, Shanahan mentioned that Gray will miss a few days of practice due to hip and back soreness, but "should be good when we get to Minnesota."CB Dontae Johnson (rib): Johnson left the Packers game in the fourth quarter with a rib injury.
