The San Francisco 49ers did not have practice on Monday, but if they did, one particular of their important offensive players, Brandon Aiyuk, would not have been in a position to participate. Aiyuk was listed as a non-participant on the team’s estimated injury report due to a shoulder injury he sustained through their victory more than the Rams. In spite of the injury, Aiyuk managed to catch 3 passes for 43 yards and played in 53 % of the team’s offensive snaps. There is nevertheless a possibility that Aiyuk will be in a position to play in Thursday’s game against the Giants, but the fast turnaround could pose a challenge.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that it is nevertheless as well early to decide the extent of Aiyuk’s injury and whether or not he will be in a position to play. Aiyuk has been a substantial contributor to the team’s offense this season, with 11 receptions for 172 yards and two touchdowns.
In addition to Aiyuk, cornerback Ambry Thomas was also listed on the injury report as a restricted participant due to a knee injury. Thomas played in 14 snaps on defense and two snaps on unique teams through Sunday’s win.
