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.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: On track for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said McKinnon (knee) has a chance to be full-go at the start of training camp, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

McKinnon was held out of OTAs and minicamp to focus on rehab from the torn ACL he suffered Sept. 1 of last year. The 49ers apparently have confidence in his ability to contribute this season, as they kept him on the roster past April 1 when his $3.7 million base salary became guaranteed. Shanahan did caution that the 27-year-old running back may have his reps limited even if he's cleared for all activities at the start of camp. McKinnon will compete for snaps in a crowded backfield with Matt Breida (pectoral) and Tevin Coleman.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Receiving salary guarantee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

GM John Lynch said McKinnon (knee) will stay with the 49ers through April 1, when his 2019 base salary ($3.7 million) becomes guaranteed, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The signing of Tevin Coleman led to speculation, but Lynch confirmed McKinnon is still part of the plan for 2019. Of course, the 49ers would be foolish not to listen if another organization were to approach them with a serious trade offer for McKinnon or Matt Breida (ankle). The current alignment points to four running backs on the 53-man roster, as the aforementioned trio is joined by special teams ace Raheem Mostert, who recently signed a three-year contract. McKinnon, Breida and Coleman are all viable candidates for the starting job, though the former needs to complete his rehab from the torn ACL he suffered Sept. 1. Multiple reports this offseason have suggested McKinnon is ahead of schedule and should be ready for the start of training camp.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Joined by Coleman in busy backfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers signed Tevin Coleman to join McKinnon (knee) and Matt Breida (ankle) at running back, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Speaking a couple weeks ago, coach Kyle Shanahan said he expects McKinnon to handle the lead backfield job in 2019, with the prized signing from last offseason making good progress in his recovery from the ACL tear he suffered Sept. 1. The addition of Coleman creates some doubt about the 49ers' confidence in Breida and McKinnon, but there hasn't been any suggestion the latter is in danger of being released before Apr. 1 when his 2019 base salary ($3.7 million) will become guaranteed. Assuming he sticks around and makes a full recovery, McKinnon will be part of a three-way battle for playing time this summer.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Expected to take starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that he expects McKinnon (knee) to handle the lead role in the 49ers' backfield in 2019, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

It's an odd comment given that McKinnon has yet to play a game for the team, and especially after Matt Breida (ankle) finished fourth in the NFL with an average of 5.3 yards per carry in 2018. The 49ers signed McKinnon to a four-year, $30 million contract last offseason, but the structure of the deal makes it relatively painless to release him after 2019. With all reports suggesting McKinnon is on or ahead of schedule in his rehab from a preseason ACL tear, the most likely scenario features the former Viking competing with Breida for top backfield duties during training camp. Shanahan may view McKinnon as the early favorite, but it should be an interesting battle to track all summer, with both players ultimately expected to handle significant roles.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Ahead of schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

San Francisco general manager John Lynch said McKinnon (knee) is six weeks ahead of schedule in his recovery process, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

While he presumably hasn't been sprinting or cutting, McKinnon recently was spotted catching passes from Jimmy Garoppolo (knee), who also is working his way back from an ACL tear. The 49ers believe both players are on pace to take the field for the start of training camp in late July, but the positive early progress doesn't make it a sure thing. Once healthy, McKinnon will face stiff competition for playing time from 2018 breakout star Matt Breida (ankle), who ranked fourth among qualified players with 5.3 yards per carry this past season.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Catching passes from Jimmy G
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (knee) caught passes from Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) recently, SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Both players are working back from ACL tears, with McKinnon suffering his injury Sept. 1 and Garoppolo suffering his Sept. 23. The 26-year-old running back seems to be on schedule in his recovery, but he still figures to be absent or limited throughout the offseason program and into OTAs/minicamp. Once he returns to full participation in practice, McKinnnon will face stiff competition for playing time from Matt Breida, who averaged 5.3 yards on 153 carries despite battling through an ankle injury for most of the 2018 campaign. For what it's worth, there hasn't been any report of Breida requiring offseason surgery.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Has ditched crutches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon doesn't need crutches to move about as he recovers from a torn ACL in his right knee, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

McKinnon suffered the injury between the preseason slate and preparation for Week 1, leaving the 49ers without one of their big offseason acquisitions for the entire campaign. Following surgery on Sept. 11, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reported McKinnon's ACL tear was "pretty clean," a positive sign for his rehab. In McKinnon's absence, the trio of Matt Breida (ankle), Raheem Mostert and Alfred Morris have combined to fuel the NFL's second-ranked rushing attack (137.4 yards per game).

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Recovering from surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon had surgery Tuesday to repair an ACL tear that's believed to be "pretty clean," Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The report doesn't provide any specifics but might be taken as a hint that McKinnon avoided major damage to the other ligaments in his knee. If so, the timing of the injury should allow him to return for Week 1 of next season, though he still has a grueling rehab process ahead. Meanwhile, Alfred Morris and Matt Breida are forming a timeshare in the San Francisco backfield.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Officially on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers placed McKinnon (knee) on injured reserve Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFLNetwork reports.

After tearing the ACL in his right knee Saturday, McKinnon was bound to land on IR. He'll now commence with rehab, allowing Alfred Morris and Matt Breida to churn out yards on the ground for the 49ers this season.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: ACL tear confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon sustained a torn ACL in his right knee at Saturday's team workout, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

During said workout, McKinnon went to the ground while making a cut, suffering a knee injury in the process. With his first season in San Francisco over, the 49ers will trust in Alfred Morris and Matt Breida to power the ground game.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Suffers non-contact knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (calf) suffered a non-contact knee injury during Saturday's practice, eliciting concern from coach Kyle Shanahan, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. "Something with a knee, we'll find out later," Shanahan said. "We're nervous about it, that's for sure."

Shanahan's comment doesn't inspire any confidence, nor does the fact that McKinnon is already scheduled for an MRI. The obvious concern is an ACL injury, but we can't make any assumptions until McKinnon has actually been evaluated. He was working his way back from a minor calf injury, with the expectation of being ready for Week 1 in Minnesota. The Niners likely will turn to Matt Breida (shoulder) and Alfred Morris to lead their backfield if McKInnon isn't available.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Suffers unknown injury Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (calf) was injured during a team workout Saturday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

Per Barrows' source, McKinnon's injury "did not look good." Signed in the offseason to serve as the 49ers' No. 1 back, McKinnon missed most of the preseason due to a calf injury, but had been increasing his conditioning work in recent days. The nature of the current concern will be known in due time, but Alfred Morris and Matt Breida (shoulder) could be the team's go-to running backs to begin the season.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Still doing conditioning work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (calf) and Matt Breida (shoulder) both went through conditioning drills in full uniform at Tuesday's practice, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The 49ers have been cautious with their injured running backs, limiting them to side work for the past week despite the expectation that both will be fine for the Sept. 9 opener in Minnesota. McKinnon and Breida seem on track to return to team drills next week after the team cuts its roster down to 53 players. Alfred Morris is making a strong case for a spot, but there hasn't been any indication that he represents a serious threat to McKinnon's expected workload -- or Breida's -- early in the season.

49ers' Jerick McKinnon: Working on side field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon (calf) is doing individual conditioning work at Tuesday's practice, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Already ruled out for the rest of the preseason, McKinnon apparently is making progress in his recovery from a calf strain he suffered during practice Aug. 12. The 49ers are playing it safe with all of their injured players, perhaps aiming for returns to full practice participation once it's time to install the gameplan for Week 1 in Minnesota. McKinnon seems to be on track to face his former team in the opener.
