Kyle’s update, 2:25 p.m. PT: Adam Schefter was on TV and said the 49ers expect Aiyuk to be healthy and active for Week 1.
The San Francisco 49ers returned to the practice field on Tuesday but were without several names, including Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring, Nick Bosa (leg) Dee Ford (calf), Ross Dwelley (foot), Ross Reynolds (knee), and Ben Garland (ankle). The good news is D.J. Jones returned to practice after being cleared from the concussion protocol. Also, for the first time, Jordan Reed participated in practice. He beat Jaquiski Tartt each time during 1-on-1’s. Reed played sparingly in team drills.
Kyle Shanahan said that Aiyuk had a mild strain in his left hamstring and is considered week-to-week. Shanahan said, “hopefully, it’s just one to two weeks.” That explains why the team worked our four wide receivers on Tuesday.
Shanahan said Bosa complained about soreness in his legs a couple of days ago, but two days later, the soreness was worse, so he got an MRI, and it’s a muscle strain. Bosa is now week-to-week. I’d shut him down until Week 1.
Ford has “calf irritation” and is considered day-to-day. Shanahan said the hope for Ford is that he’ll be back soon.
Kyle said he’s also hoping that Deebo Samuel could return by Week 1 but isn’t sure if that will happen. Samuel continues to sprint on the side of practice. If he does miss Week 1, judging by how he’s running already, I won’t count on Deebo missing too many more games after that. He’s progressing quite well.
Raheem Mostert didn’t practice Tuesday, but Shanahan called it a veteran’s day that Mostert earned. He’s just getting some rest, per Shanahan.
Lastly, Shanahan said he’s happy with the roster’s safeties and that there was no interest in signing Earl Thomas. “Nothing against Earl, but there wasn’t interest. We have our team.”
