In the middle of a hectic Monday as the 49ers prepare to deal with the New York Giants on a brief week, the group doubted about the status of pass receiver Brandon Aiyuk.
Aiyuk sustained a left shoulder injury throughout the opening drive of the 49ers’ Week 2 success over the Los Angeles Rams.
He made a diving 13-yard reception and landed hard on the synthetic surface area at SoFi Stadium.
“It’s too early to have all the answers to the injuries, yet,” Shanahan informed regional press reporters on a teleconference.
After back-to-back wins on the roadway to open the routine season, the 49ers go back to action Thursday night versus the Giants in the house opener at Levi’s Stadium.
Aiyuk’s accessibility seems the 49ers’ greatest injury issue getting in the Week 3 video game.
Aiyuk played 30 of the 49ers’ 57 offensive plays, as the 49ers blended in novice pass receiver Ronnie Bell and Jauan Jennings, each of whom was on the field for 27 snaps.
Aiyuk, the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his season-opening efficiency versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, had 3 catches for 53 backyards in the 49ers’ 30-23 win over the Rams.
Cornerback Deommodore Lenoir was cleared to go back to play Sunday after being examined for a head injury. After returning into the action, Lenoir made a great play to obstruct a fourth-quarter pass from Matthew Stafford.
Lenoir is set up to have a follow-up examination on Monday, Shanahan stated.
Cornerback Ambry Thomas left the video game in the very first quarter with a best knee injury. He went back to action and played an overall of 14 snaps.
