Mike McGlinchey plays unexpected role in his NFL debut

Mike McGlinchey plays unexpected role in his NFL debut

The first round pick gets thrown into the fire in his first NFL start, and holds his own The 49ers suffered several injuries in their week one match up facing the Vikings, two alone on the offensive line. Losing Mike Person and Joshua Garnett forced the team to use swing tackle Garry Gilliam at right tackle and rookie Mike McGlinchey at right guard. If any other players were injured, the only other option would have been to have a tight end on the line as they only dressed seven offensive linemen. Having McGlinchey play at guard wasn't the plan but it was a necessity. Head coach Kyle...

49ers unsure about state of offensive line

One day after the 49ers scrambled to cover for injuries on their offensive line, head coach Kyle Shanahan wasn’t sure if guards Mike Person and Joshua Garnett would be available for next Sunday’s home opener against Detroit. Shanahan, at his weekly news conference Monday in Santa Clara, said Person strained his foot and Garnett dislocated his toe in Sunday’s 24-16 loss to Minnesota. That forced rookie tackle Mike McGlinchey to move to guard for most of the second half, with Garry Gilliam replacing McGlinchey at right tackle. “We don’t know how long it’s going to be, but the good...

San Francisco 49ers at Minnesota Vikings: 49ers Final Injury Report

No real surprises here The San Francisco 49ers have released their final Injury Report, leading up to this Sunday’s game at U.S. Bank Stadium. Out: Erik Magnuson C (Hamstring) Dekoda Watson LB (Hamstring) Doubtful: Malcolm Smith LB (Hamstring) Expected to Play: Garry Gilliam RT (Concussion) Jimmie Ward LCB (Quad) Malcolm Smith starts at WILL Linebacker for the 49ers, so that could be one situation to watch. Typically, the weakside linebacker is responsible for pass coverage. With Kirk Cousins’ ability in the short passing game, that could be one area Offensive Coordinator John...

49ers getting relatively healthy at the right time

49ers getting relatively healthy at the right time

It’s hard to say the San Francisco 49ers are “healthy” in the bigger picture sense considering Jerick McKinnon is done for the year. However, that aside, the team is getting healthy at the right time. The 49ers released their Thursday practice participation report, and swing tackle Garry Gilliam and reserve cornerback Jimmie Ward were both upgraded from limited to full. Malcolm Smith remained limited, but defensive coordinator Robert Saleh was optimistic he would be good to go on Sunday. Erik Magnuson remains sidelined rehabbing his hamstring injury, but the rest of the current 53-man...

49ers acquire second offensive tackle in four days; re-sign Exum

With Garry Gilliam, their primary swing tackle still in the concussion protocol from an injury he sustained Aug. 9, the 49ers acquired their second offensive tackle in four days Monday by signing Matt Tobin to a one-year deal. Tobin, 28, has made 21 career starts in a six-year career spent with the Eagles, Seahawks and Patriots. Tobin was released by New England on Saturday after spending the offseason with the team. The signing comes after the 49ers traded a 2019 seventh-round pick to the Browns for Shon Coleman, who started 16 games at right tackle last year. The 49ers are carrying 10...

On the line: Gilliam’s injury led to 49ers’ trade; Cooper couldn’t compete

Offensive tackle Garry Gilliam, who was signed to a two-year extension in February, remains in the concussion protocol after he was injured on Aug. 9 in the preseason opener against the Cowboys. On Friday, the 49ers acquired offensive tackle Shon Coleman from the Browns for a 2019 seventh-round pick. On Saturday, head coach Kyle Shanahan acknowledged Gilliam’s uncertain status inspired the deal. “Any time you’re dealing with the head and concussion, you don’t know,” Shanahan said. “It could be anywhere from a day to a year. There’s no way of knowing.

Uncertainty at OT prompts 49ers’ trade for Browns’ Coleman

With their primary backup offensive tackle, Garry Gilliam, still in the concussion protocol after he was injured in the preseason opener Aug. 9, the 49ers traded a 2019 seventh-round pick to the Browns today for offensive tackle Shon Coleman. The 49ers made the move as they waived offensive tackles Darrell Williams Jr. and Pace Murphy, along with 10 other players, before Saturday’s deadline to cut to 53 players. The trade for Coleman suggests the return of Gilliam, 27, who signed a two-year extension in February, is not imminent. Coleman, a 2015 third-round pick from Auburn, made all 16 of...
