Goodwin (quad) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Detroit, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Recovering from an injury coach Kyle Shanahan described as a deep thigh bruise, Goodwin was unable to practice with his teammates all week, but he at least was spotted doing some side work at the beginning of Friday's session. Per Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com, Shanahan confirmed that rookie second-round pick Dante Pettis will replace Goodwin in the Week 2 starting lineup against a shaky Detroit defense. Goodwin will turn his focus toward getting healthy for a Week 3 contest in Kansas City.
Goodwin (quad) isn't in uniform for the start of Friday's practice, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Though he isn't practicing with his teammates, Goodwin is at least doing some work off to the side, perhaps giving him a shot to be listed as a limited participant on the final injury report. He was a non-participant both Wednesday and Thursday, leaving his status for Sunday's game against the Lions in serious question.
Goodwin (quadriceps) didn't practice Thursday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. During Sunday's season-opening defeat at Minnesota, Goodwin was contained to just 17 offensive snaps (26 percent) due to a deep thigh bruise suffered in the second quarter of the contest. In his stead, 2018 second-round selection Dante Pettis was the primary beneficiary, accounting for two catches (on five targets) for 61 yards and one touchdown across 48 snaps on offense. With back-to-back absences to kick off Week 2 prep, Goodwin is upholding coach Kyle Shanahan's proclamation that the wideout is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Friday's injury report will provide the final word on Goodwin's availability.
San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that he considers Goodwin (thigh) questionable for Sunday's game against Detroit, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Goodwin was held out of practice Wednesday after suffering a deep right thigh bruise in the second quarter of Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Vikings. He briefly tried to play through the injury in the second half, but he didn't draw any targets after the first quarter and finished the day with just 17 offensive snaps. Rookie second-round pick Dante Pettis took advantage of the opportunity with two catches for 61 yards and a touchdown on five targets across 48 snaps. Pierre Garcon, Trent Taylor and tight end George Kittle would also be in the mix to take on some of Goodwin's vacated targets if the speedy wideout is absent or limited Week 2.
Coach Kyle Shanahan considers Goodwin "day-to-day" due to a "deep thigh bruise," Joe Fann of the 49ers' official site reports. Goodwin picked up the injury in the second quarter Sunday in Minnesota when he took a knee to his right quad, after which he primarily was used as a decoy. He subsequently received just one target from Jimmy Garoppolo, which is a far cry from the 6.6 per game of his 2017 breakout. Considering he's day-to-day and won't be required to suit up again until 4:05 PM ET on Sunday, Goodwin has plenty of time to focus on rehab and even take part in practice this week.
