San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan met with the media late Monday afternoon to give an update on some of the teams’ recent injuries. Here is how the 49ers came out of the Rams game:

D.J. Jones (hamstring)

K’Waun Williams (hand)

Richard Sherman (stinger)

Deebo Samuel (groin)

Jones and Samuel will be questionable this week. Shanahan said that Sherman and Williams should be good to practice. Shanahan made it seem like each player will be okay, and neither of the injuries is serious.

The good news is the 49ers should be getting a few key starters back this month. Shanahan said that the hope is to get starting cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon back for the Panthers game, which is on October 27. Witherspoon will be out this week but has a “better chance” to play against Carolina.

Also, Shanahan said the hope is to get Joe Staley back for the Halloween game against the Cardinals. Staley did some light conditioning on Sunday. There’s a slight chance he could play against the Panthers, but it’s a short week so that Arizona would make more sense. Those are both best-case scenarios.

Shanahan added that nothing has changed with OT Mike McGlinchey and FB Kyle Juszczyk on the injury front. Both still on their initial 4-6 week timetable.
