San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters ahead of Friday’s training, and provided some injury updates during the conversation. First, he exposed that offensive lineman Jaylon Moore It will waste some time with lower leg strain.

The other injury was in the wide receiver Marcus Johnsonwhich is in concussion protocol. The injury occurred on Tuesday, the same day as the quarrels between the full-back Fred Warner and a wide receiver Brandon Ayuk. According to Shanahan, Johnson received a major blow from the stellar linebacker, causing injury and sparking a scuffle.

“I like his intensity, but I don’t think you have to fight until you’re tough,” Shanahan said of the fights. “A quarrel is a quarrel. Then it leads to other things. I guess that’s why a guy is in protocol because we took an unnecessary bullet at someone, which resulted in a big fight. And then a bunch of haymakers and stuff were thrown in there, who just breaks hands.” .

“I think our squad is very strong. I think we have a strong body. I think if most people voted probably who was the physically fittest team on the bar last year, I think we would win most of that, and we did” We didn’t get into a single fight last year . So I don’t think this is entirely about toughness.”

Shanahan added that he understands Aiyuk’s point of view and that the receiver stands by his teammate.

Warner recently said he’s challenging Ayok on the football field to help take his game to the next level for the third year. What does Shanahan think of this type of comment, considering the scuffles that erupted then?

“I want everyone to challenge each other,” Shanahan said. “I don’t care how foolish each other is. I don’t care how close they are to a fight. They can do whatever they want to make themselves advance and get as intense as they want, and bring out the best in each other, which happens a lot that way, it’s the same on the field, but once You throw a punch, get kicked out, or get a penalty.

“We pride ourselves on ourselves – I want people to be annoying. I want people to get as close as possible to all of these things. I want people to communicate straight to where they are about to pass out. But you can never miss playing football or it will cost your team. But I love doing That’s for other people.”


The 49ers announced that they have given up a wide receiver facilitating mak. He joined the team as a non-certified free agent on May 13, 2022.
