The Wilson thing wasn’t even on the field, Well I was sitting in a chair in the locker room the 49ers and he hurt himself when he tried to get up and his knee was in an awkward position.
This Tuesday, the coach Kyle Shanahan talked about the injuries, who have not left their team alone.
“Three regrettable injuries, two on the field. I think the hardest thing is that two were in the field “Shanahan said. “We had a clean camp, no one suffered a serious injury like that. And then we had two players in three plays with Tarvarius and Skule. That was a bit depressing. You always hate to see that, but last year we didn’t have an offseason, we lost four people before training camp started. “
Shanahan se refiere a los wide receivers Deebo Samuel (broken foot) and Richie James (broken wrist), already the cornerbacks DJ Reed (torn pectoral) and Teez Tabor (broken foot).
Later, during the regular season they lost Nick Bosa (2019 Defensive Rookie of the Year), Solomon Thomas and Jalen Hurd with knee ligament injuries; Ezekiel Ansah he also missed much of the season with a bicep problem, among many other injuries.
“It is part of life, we have two people injured in voluntary practices. Y it’s very unfortunate because those two guys were having a great practice and Jeff was injured before training started, ”Shanahan lamented.
The good news for the Gambusinos defense is that Bosa is recovering satisfactorily, although at the moment he has not been able to train alongside his teammates.
“Can’t participate in many things because he’s still rehabbing, but he’s been here all week and yes, he’s been fine, ”acknowledged Shanahan.
In 2019, Bosa was second with the team with nine quarterback sacks. In fact, the then-rookie had seven sacks in his first seven NFL games, tying a league record since sacks are tallied in 1982.
