49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Looking healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon's surgically repaired knee has responded well to strenuous workouts, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

After missing the past two seasons with knee injuries, McKinnon agreed to reduce his 2020 base salary from $6.5 million to $910,000. The new number gives him a much better shot to stick on the 53-man roster, though he will face some competition from Jeff Wilson and undrafted rookies JaMycal Hasty and Salvon Ahmed. Meanwhile, presumed lead back Raheem Mostert has submitted a trade request, apparently frustrated with a lack of progress toward his desired pay raise. The 49ers also have Tevin Coleman in the backfield, while Matt Breida was traded to Miami in April. The team should be able to work things out with Mostert, but if not, McKinnon could open training camp in the second spot on the depth chart.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Could handle passing downs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon could have a role on third downs this upcoming season, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The San Francisco backfield became a bit less crowded when Matt Breida was traded to Miami on the third day of the 2020 NFL Draft. Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman are left as the clear favorites for carries, but McKinnon could be the top pick for the third-down role if he can prove he's back at full strength after missing the past two seasons with knee injuries. He accepted a pay cut in April to stay with the 49ers, one month after GM John Lynch declared the veteran running back healthy. The 49ers also have third-year pro Jeff Wilson in the backfield, and their class of undrafted rookies includes Salvon Ahmed and JaMycal Hasty.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Agrees to restructured deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers and McKinnon agreed to a restructured contract for the 2020 season Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Knee woes have wiped out both of the last two seasons for McKinnon, so it's no surprise the 49ers sought to decrease his $6.5 million base salary for 2020. Fortunately for McKinnon, he was deemed healthy by GM John Lynch in late February, so he'll have a chance to work his way up a cluttered RB depth chart. McKinnon joins Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman as incumbents for the upcoming campaign, while Matt Breida is a restricted free agent.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Deemed healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager John Lynch said McKinnon (knee) is now healthy and could stay with the 49ers if the two sides reach an agreement on a reworked contract, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Scheduled for a $6.5 million base salary in the third season of a four-year, $30 million contract, McKinnon presumably needs to accept a huge pay cut to have any shot at sticking around in San Francisco. He missed all of 2018 and 2019 with right knee injuries, and he wasn't exactly a world beater in his four seasons with Minnesota from 2014 to 2017. Fellow running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman are under contract with the 49ers for the upcoming season, while Matt Breida can become a restricted free agent. Regardless of what happens this offseason, McKinnon is looking at a difficult path back to fantasy relevance.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Wants to stay in San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (knee) hopes to stay with the 49ers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. "I'm willing to do whatever," McKinnon said. "The organization knows I want to be a part of this team, so when that time comes there will be a talk between both parties."

Still rehabbing from Sept. 3 surgery, McKinnon missed the entirety of the past two seasons with right knee injuries. He'd presumably need to accept a pay cut to have any shot at sticking with the 49ers for 2020, as he's scheduled for a non-guaranteed $6.5 million base salary in the third season of a four-year, $30 million contract, per overthecap.com. It isn't clear how far along McKinnon is in his rehab process, nor is it clear he'll have a role in the San Francisco offense if he returns to health and accepts a pay cut. Fellow running back Raheem Mostert is under contract through 2021, and Matt Breida's status as a restricted free agent suggests he'll likely be back with the team. Tevin Coleman may end up being a cap casualty, but even then the 49ers would have Jeff Wilson ready to battle for a backup role.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Gets surgery on knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (knee) had surgery Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

McKinnon hasn't provided details on the surgery, apart from stating that it doesn't directly involve the torn ACL and damaged meniscus that wiped out his 2018 campaign. He'll now miss another full season on injured reserve, but he hopes to make it back next offseason and stick around with the 49ers. Doing so likely would involve a pay cut from his scheduled $6.5 million base salary for 2020.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Another knee surgery on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

GM John Lynch said Mckinnon needs another surgery on his right knee, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

McKinnon endured a number of setbacks in his recovery from the torn right ACL suffered last August, precipitating the need for another procedure. He'll miss back-to-back campaigns as he yields the 49ers backfield to Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Heading to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers placed McKinnon (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Exactly a year removed from tearing the ACL in his right knee, McKinnon will miss a second straight season, primarily due to a number of setbacks during training camp and ensuing practices. The 49ers will trust in Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida to run the backfield in 2019.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Headed for injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (knee) is expected to be placed on injured reserve and may have to undergo surgery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

General manager John Lynch said Wednesday that McKinnon had suffered a setback during practice Tuesday, and it now looks like surgery may be on tap for the running back. His season is not officially over, as Rapoport reports that the 49ers are still open to McKinnon returning eventually, but the tailback is now slated to miss a significant amount of time. Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida are now the clear top options in San Francisco's backfield to open the season.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager John Lynch said that McKinnon (knee) suffered a setback in Tuesday's practice, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Lynch also noted that McKinnon's return to practice Tuesday was "not encouraging." Coach Kyle Shanahan previously indicated that McKinnon had a chance to suit up for the Week 1 matchup with the Buccaneers, but the running back's availability for the season opener is now trending in the wrong direction. McKinnon has had a bumpy recovery while working his way back from a right ACL tear that sidelined him for the entire 2018 season and looks to be behind both Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida in the backfield pecking order.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Outside shot for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that there's a possibility that McKinnon (knee) could be available for Week 1 against Tampa Bay, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Mckinnon returned to practice Tuesday and got even better news, signaling that he could be ready in time for the start of the regular season. McKinnon continues to work back from a torn right ACL he suffered before the 2018 season and could see his workload ramp up as the season draws closer. The veteran would share the backfield with Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida should he be healthy enough to play.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Per the report, this marks McKinnon's first time out there since a "two-practice cameo (a) couple weeks ago." As McKinnon works his way back from the torn right ACL he suffered last September, it seems unlikely he'll be handed much of a role out of the gate this season. With that in mind, Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida figure to handle the bulk of the 49ers' backfield duties come Week 1.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: On pace to practice soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan expects McKinnon (knee) to practice this week, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

When he suffered a setback in early August, McKinnon received a platelet-rich plasma injection, which was intended to relieve discomfort in the right knee that sustained a torn ACL last Sept. 1. There was an expectation he'd return to drills within a couple weeks, and he seemingly will do just that in the near future. The tougher prediction is whether McKinnon will be available for a Week 1 visit to Tampa Bay. Even if he is, the 49ers likely will place RB reps in the hands of healthier bodies like Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Set to do individual work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (knee) is expected to take part in individual drills this week, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

McKinnon received a platelet rich plasma injection about two weeks ago to help with knee soreness, and any practice he takes part in this week will be his first since then. It looks like the 49ers are going to ease McKinnon back into practicing, and it's unclear what his status will be for the regular season.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Back on the shelf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon, who is dealing with soreness in his knee, is slated to receive a platelet rich plasma injection, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Wagoner adds that coach Kyle Shanahan relayed that McKinnon -- who tore his right ACL last Sept. 1 -- could potentially be back at practice in a couple of weeks, but the team's prime goal and hope is to have the running back ready for Week 1. Per Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, McKinnon can't go back on the team's PUP list, so if he's "slow to recover, the only option would be to start season on IR and come back later in the season." That's something the team would prefer to avoid, but Shanahan added that if if McKinnon isn't recovered by the start of the season, "we'll be patient with him." For now, Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman are the team's top two healthy backs.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Gets in some individual drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (knee) took part in individual drills in his return to practice Tuesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Activated from the PUP list, McKinnon was able to practice for the first time since tearing his right ACL last Sept. 1. If not for what GM John Lynch called a "flareup" in the knee prior to training camp, McKinnon may have been active in a session before Tuesday's. As expected, McKinnon won't progress to team drills just yet as the 49ers ease him in with the aim of avoiding a setback, per coach Kyle Shanahan. Notably, McKinnon didn't wear a brace on the knee in question, according to Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News. As a result, McKinnon may not be far away from a full practice and potentially even some game action before Week 1.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Removed from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (knee) has been removed from the 49ers' PUP list, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Per the report, McKinnon -- who tore his ACL back on Sept. 1 last year -- is expected to be eased into practices slowly and may be restricted to walkthroughs out of the gate. Once he amps things up in the coming weeks, McKinnon is slated to compete for touches with fellow backs Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Not quite ready
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (knee) will remain on the 49ers' preseason PUP list until at least Monday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The running back will be reassessed at that time, but he'll continue to sit out the team's current block of practices. Coach Kyle Shanahan had previously expressed hope that McKinnon could return to practice soon, but the 49ers are wisely playing it safe with the 27-year-old, who tore his right ACL at the beginning of September last year. Once he's back on the field, McKinnon will compete for touches with fellow backs Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Could be ready this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said McKinnon (knee) could be removed from the PUP list soon, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area suggests McKinnon could return as soon as Thursday, with Wednesday marking the first off day of 49ers training camp. The 27-year-old running back suffered a minor setback in his ACL rehab a couple weeks ago, while backfield mate Matt Breida was cleared from the pectoral injury that held him out of offseason practices. Both players are expected to battle Tevin Coleman for snaps and touches.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Suffers minor setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (knee) will open training camp on the PUP list after suffering a setback in his rehab process, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. "Jerick has had a tremendous recovery," 49ers GM John Lynch said Friday. "About a week and a half ago had a little flare up in the knee."

Lynch downplayed the severity of the setback, noting that McKinnon isn't expected to stay on the PUP list for long, per Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. The 27-year-old running back was held out of practice at OTAs and minicamp, with the expectation of a return for the start of training camp this week. Fellow running back Matt Breida (pectoral) avoided the PUP list.
