09/24/18RBMatt BreidaKneeQUESTIONABLECoach Kyle Shanahan told Matt Barrows of The Athletic on Monday that Breida has a hyperextended knee.

Breida left Sunday's loss in Kansas City for a string of snaps due to a right knee injury, but he returned and proceeded to rack up 117 yards from scrimmage on 13 touches. Meanwhile, Alfred Morris was utilized solely on the ground, turning 14 carries into 67 yards and one touchdown. Shanahan called Breida questionable this week, making him a tossup to take the practice field Wednesday through Friday. In the event the 49ers take a cautious approach with Breida, Morris likely would be a bell cow for Sunday's road game against the Chargers considering Raheem Mostert is the only other running back on the 49ers' 53-man roster.

09/24/18QBJimmy GaroppoloKnee - ACLOUTGaroppolo is expected to undergo surgery on the torn ACL in his left knee in the next 1-2 weeks, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Garoppolo will wait until swelling in the region diminishes before undergoing the procedure. Coach Kyle Shanahan mentioned Monday that Garoppolo's injury is believed to be contained to his ACL, but admitted surgery could reveal additional damage, per Matt Barrows of The Athletic. While Garoppolo embarks on a lengthy recovery effort, the 49ers will turn to C.J. Beathard to run the offense.

09/24/18RBAlfred MorrisAnkleQUESTIONABLEMorris picked up an ankle injury during Sunday's defeat at Kansas City, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Like Matt Breida, Morris missed some time Week 3 due to injury. Unlike Breida, who has a hyperextended right knee, Morris seems to be dealing with a minor concern. As evidence, coach Kyle Shanahan said he expects Morris "to be alright." With the status of the 49ers top two running backs in flux, upcoming practices will be key to determining an approximate breakdown of upcoming reps out of the backfield.

09/24/18DBRichard ShermanCalfOUTSherman (calf) is expected to be out for 2-to-3 weeks, Jordan Schultz of ESPN.com reports.

Sherman entered Sunday's game against the Chiefs nursing a heel issue, then left the contest after suffering a left calf strain. Fortunately for Sherman, the injury is to the opposite leg in which he suffered a torn Achilles last season. An MRI apparently didn't reveal any major structural damage, but the 30-year-old cornerback nonetheless is expected to miss multiple games. Jimmie Ward likely will replace Sherman in the starting lineup Week 4 against the Chargers.

09/24/18DBJaquiski TarttShoulderQUESTIONABLETartt (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's tilt against Kansas City.

Tartt played through his shoulder injury in Week 2 but the issue got worse during the game. His limited participation in Friday's practice made the team hopeful he'd be able to play Sunday. Now that he's been ruled out, look for Antone Exum to get the spot start at safety.

09/23/18DBAdrian ColbertHipQUESTIONABLEColbert (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday in San Francisco.

Colbert opened the week with back-to-back DNPs at practice but he was elevated to a limited participant at Friday's session. After playing all 71 defensive snaps and accruing five tackles last Sunday, he's slated to do the same Week 2.

09/23/18DBTarvarius MooreWristQUESTIONABLEMoore is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs due to a wrist injury, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Moore's injury is unlikely to significantly impact San Francisco's defense, given that he's the third right cornerback on the depth chart. If Moore is unable to return to Sunday's contest, it will fall to another depth player to take over his special teams duties.

06/02/18WRVictor BoldenSuspensionSUSPENDBolden has been suspended for the first four games of the 2018 season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Bolden was primarily being used on special teams last season as a return man before an ankle injury caused him to land on the team's injured reserve. Should he make the team's final roster, he'll now have to wait until at least Week 5 to make his return to the field. However, the suspension could lead to the 49ers releasing Bolden.
