49ers injury updates: RB Christian McCaffrey day-to-day with ankle sprain, LG Aaron Banks out vs. Cardinals

“The 49ers are dealing with a handful of injury issues heading into their 2022 season finale on Sunday vs. the Cardinals. Head coach Kyle Shanahan on Monday had a conference call with reporters and had some additional injury updates beyond the two immediately following the team’s win over the Raiders.”

49ers minutia minute: Examining Christian McCaffrey’s best game since the trade (paywall)

“Despite the plays mentioned above, it was a relatively quiet outing for Crosby. He entered the contest with 11 1/2 sacks and 33 quarterback hits but was limited to a single quarterback hit on Sunday. That speaks to how well McGlinchey played. He had help on some of his matchups with Crosby but apart from the end-zone pressure in the first quarter, he mostly won his one-on-one battles.”

Confident 49ers QB Brock Purdy: “All I needed was a shot and an opportunity”

“I mean, I’ve always believed in myself from college to this point, preseason, all that kind of stuff,” Purdy told Albert Breer of TheMMQB. “I’ve always believed that I was good enough to play at this level, and all I needed was a shot and an opportunity. And so, for me, I don’t make it anything more than that, but I have guys around me, too. It’s not all Brock Purdy coming in and saving the day. I have a lot of leaders on this team, so I just gotta give them the ball, and they do the rest.”

What Kyle Shanahan said the day after 49ers’ Week 17 win vs. Raiders

Why Rapoport believes 49ers’ Kyle Shanahan deserves Coach of the Year consideration

“He’s got a chance at the No. 1 seed with a backup quarterback to the backup quarterback. That’s amazing. So that’s real coaching.”
