The San Francisco 49ers announced their final injury report for Sunday’s Week 7 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, and there are no surprises. The team has ruled out fullback Kyle Juszczyk and edge rusher Aaron Lynch. Reuben Foster, Ray-Ray Armstrong, Brock Coyle, and Dekoda Watson are all listed as questionable.
Juszczyk and Lynch sat out practice all week, so the “out” designation is not surprising. The big question is when we see them back at practice. Kyle Shanahan said earlier this week that Lynch is “week-to-week” with his calf injury. That usually means at least a couple weeks absence.
The 49ers brought back Logan Paulsen to help fill out the run-blocking they lose with Juszczyk sidelined. Shanahan talked about the need to adjust personnel sets without Juszczyk, and that likely means mostly just a lot of George Kittle and Garrett Celek.
The pass rush has been inconsistent, and Lynch has not exactly gotten a ton of work in the rotation. He’s getting snaps, but it has been fairly uninspiring. With Lynch and Armstead not playing on Sunday, it means more Solomon Thomas, and potentially more Elvis Dumervil.
The best news for the 49ers is that Reuben Foster made his way through practice, and is on track to play Sunday. Kyle Shanahan said Friday morning that he would be surprised if Foster didn’t play, and then said Friday afternoon that he is pretty confident Foster will play. That bodes well.
