The San Francisco 49ers injury report continues its hits as wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is ruled out. This helps the development of Dante Pettis who had a decent Sunday last week and now will have some more responsibilities. It also helps Richie James who no doubt is suiting up for Sunday.
But boy does this hurt. Goodwin is seen as the 1b wide receiver who was primed for a huge season. He still could put up some good numbers, but getting knocked out of the first game of the season against the Minnesota Vikings and now out completely against the Detroit Lions, it’s definitely not an inspiring start. This does help the development of Pettis and James as they can get that valuable game day experience they may not get otherwise, but man. The 49ers are just getting banged up all over the place.
I’m definitely interested in the development of Najee Toran, but I’m pretty sure when I said he needed development, I meant a season or more. Not one game. Unfortunately, desperate times call for desperate measures. Who knows? He may emerge as a valuable option for the future.
The 49ers just need to get healthy.
