Coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that he considers Goodwin (thigh) questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Goodwin was held out of practice Wednesday after suffering a deep 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 snaps (26 percent). 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 TE 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.
Goodwin (quadriceps) re-entered Sunday's game against the Vikings in the third quarter, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Goodwin suffered a painful-looking quad injury when he was upended early in the contest, resulting in him missing a little over a quarter of action. After working out on the exercise bike on the sideline, the 49ers cleared the wideout to return to action, suggesting the injury was never much of a concern. He'll now look to salvage what had been a catchless season debut prior to his departure.
Goodwin caught three of four targets for 40 yards during Saturday's 23-17 loss to the Colts.
Goodwin left the game with an apparent hand injury, but he came back into the game and made a catch, indicating the concern was only minor. Most importantly, Goodwin was one of Jimmy Garoppolo's most targeted players and failed to haul in just one of the balls thrown his way. The speedster posted excellent numbers down the stretch following Garoppolo's acquisition last season and could be a useful fantasy option this season if he maintains his sizable role in the offense. He's not expected to play in the team's final preseason contest and should be ready to roll for the start of the regular season.
Goodwin has been Jimmy Garoppolo's favorite target throughout training camp, ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner reports.
Goodwin reportedly is getting more looks than Pierre Garcon, who was sidelined by a neck injury during Garoppolo's stretch as the starting quarterback last season. The trend continued into the team's first preseason game, with Goodwin holding a 3-0 target advantage over Garcon on six Garoppolo pass attempts. Not that there was much doubt after what happened last year, but it's increasingly clear the 49ers view Goodwin as far more than a modest-volume deep threat.
Goodwin (back) had three downfield catches during Thursday's practice, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Goodwin signed a three-year, $20.3 extension in March and participated in most of the offseason program, but he was held out of June minicamp while dealing with a sore back. The issue apparently didn't linger throughout the summer, as the speedy wideout made a strong impression during the first practice of training camp. Goodwin and Pierre Garcon are locked in as starters, with Trent Taylor (back) favored to beat out Dante Pettis and Kendrick Bourne for the No. 3 job.
