Garcon (knee) is not present at Monday's practice, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Garcon is expected to practice at some point this week after missing two of San Francisco's last three games with an unspecified knee injury. However, his return evidently will need to wait at least another day as neither Garcon or Marquise Goodwin (undisclosed) were spotted in the portion of practice available to the media. In their absences, Kendrick Bourne and Dante Pettis figure to get extended reps with the first-team offense.
Coach Kyle Shanahan expects every player on the 53-man roster, including Garcon (knee), to practice after the 49ers' Week 11 bye, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The 49ers' next game is Nov. 25 in Tampa Bay, so Shanahan won't be cobbling together another injury report until Wednesday, Nov. 21. At that point, Garcon's activity level will forecast his odds to play for just the second time since Oct. 21. If he returns Week 12, his presence likely would push Dante Pettis down the pecking order, with Marquise Goodwin and Kendrick Bourne the other San Francisco wideouts to receive significant workloads.
Garcon (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Giants, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Garcon didn't practice all week, so this designation shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Look for some combination of Kendrick Bourne, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor to fill in for the veteran wide receiver with Marquise Goodwin serving as the clear No. 1 option at the position.
Garcon (knee) did not practice Saturday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. Garcon's official status will likely be released later Saturday, but consider the veteran receiver questionable at best for Monday's game after failing to practice at all this week. Should Garcon miss any time, Kendrick Bourne, Richie James, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor would compete for the extra snaps.
Garcon (knee) didn't practice Friday. Banged up for most of the season, Garcon finally broke through with a 3-56-1 receiving line in last Thursday's blowout win over the Raiders. An absence Monday night against the Giants would free up snaps for some combination of Kendrick Bourne, Richie James, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor.
