49ers Catch a Big Break With News on Jimmy Garoppolo, Trent Williams and Others

The San Francisco 49ers caught a massive break following their Week 4 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Things began to look rather grim postgame as head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed a number of players statuses were up in the air.

Most notably, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo played just two quarters of Sunday's contest after dealing with a calf injury that sidelined him for the entirety of the second half. The quarterback underwent an MRI on Monday as his injury was ruled a calf contusion. Per Shanahan, Garoppolo will be evaluated over the next several days and still has a chance to start in Week 5 as the team is set to face off against the undefeated Arizona Cardinals.

Roster Moves

The 49ers announced on Wednesday they have signed CB Buster Skrine to a one-year deal. The team also opened the Injured Reserve practice windows for CB Davontae Harris and DL Maurice Hurst.

Skrine (5-9, 187) was originally drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the fifth round (137th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft. Throughout his 10-year NFL career with the Browns (2011-14), New York Jets (2015-18) and Chicago Bears (2019-20), he has appeared in 151 games (92 starts) and registered 545 tackles, 85 passes defensed, nine interceptions, six forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and 3.5 sacks.

Dura Derrota Divisional vs. Seahawks

San Francisco enfrentó a Seattle en su primer juego divisional de la temporada 2021. El inició del juego fue prometedor para los 49ers, sobre todo con un gran trabajo defensivo. Las primeras cinco posesiones de Seattle en el partido terminaron en despeje. La mala noticia fue que a la ofensiva San Francisco no pudo agregar una buena cantidad de puntos mientras tenía su defensa bajo control a Russell Wilson. Lee Mas >>>
