#49ers report that Trent Taylor complained about pain in his foot after practice on Thursday. He had an x-ray and they found a fracture in his pinky toe.— Jennifer Lee Chan (@jenniferleechan) August 11, 2019
He had surgery yesterday to insert a screw/pin (to get ahead of it) with the hope that he will be ready early in the season.
So, Trent Taylor suffered a broken foot. General manager John Lynch just said on the live 49ers broadcast that Taylor will be out indefinitely after catching a touchdown pass during Thursday’s practice. Lynch said they didn’t think much of it, then when Taylor got checked out after practice by the medical team, they found out he broke his foot. We’ll update the timetable as soon as we hear about that. This is almost worst-case scenario for the offense, as Taylor was Jimmy Garoppolo’s go-to wide receiver during training camp. Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd will now have to play sooner than expected.
During the first offensive possession of the San Francisco 49ers, they may have lost a key member for an extended period of time. Swing tackle Shon Coleman was carted off the field after guard Najee Toran rolled up on him. It appeared to be a significant ankle injury.
The 49ers trainers put an air cast on Coleman’s right foot as he was being carted off. We’ll know soon enough just how much time Coleman will miss. In his absence, Willie Beavers came in at left tackle. Ideally, Coleman would never have to play this season. In a perfect world Joe Staley and Mike McGlinchey never miss a snap. Now we know that if that happens, Beavers is the next man up, despite being listed behind rookie sixth-round pick Justin Skule on the teams’ unofficial depth chart.
RB Raheem Mostert also went to the locker room with an undisclosed injury. DT DJ Jones also left with a knee injury and is questionable to return.
You can’t make this up.
