49ers – Giants Week 3 Injury Report

The San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants came away with hard fought victories in week two. Their reward is a Thursday night matchup at Levi’s Stadium. For San Francico this will be the first of two Thursday night games on their schedule. That’s brutal.

On a positive note, the 49ers come into this game healthier than the Giants. Here is the 49ers – Rams injury report, with analysis.

49ers Injury Report

Player Injury Monday Tuesday Wednesday Status
Brandon Aiyuk Shoulder DNP Limited Limited Questionable
Ambry Thomas Knee Limited Limited Limited Questionable

Monday Notes:

  • The 49ers did not practice on Monday. Above is their estimated injury report.
  • Brandon Aiyuk underwent a CT scan. There was no break to the clavicle area. His ability to play Thursday night will be all about pain tolerance. Kyle Shanahan confirmed Aiyuk’s shoulder injury occurred on his first catch of the game Ambry Thomas injured his knee on the second possession of the game. After missing some time, he came back into the game.
  • Deommodore Lenoir was checked for a concussion during the game and cleared. He was check again today and cleared.
  • The 49ers lost defensive back Qwuantrezz Knight from their practice squad. The Arizona Cardinals signed Knight to their active roster. San Francisco lost Ilm Manning to Arizona at the final cutdown as well.
  • San Francisco had cornerback Bradley Roby in for a workout. Roby was a first round pick of the Denver Broncos in 2014. He spent the last two seasons with the New Orleans Saints. In 27 games with New Orleans, Roby recorded one interception and ten passes defensed.

Tuesday Notes:

  • Brandon Aiyuk was upgraded to limited today. When asked what he needs to see from Aiyuk before letting him play Thursday night head coach Kyle Shanahan said, “just that the trainers and him himself tell me that he can go.”
  • San Francisco added veteran cornerback Anthony Brown to the active roster. He fills the open roster spot created when Samuel Womack was placed on injured reserve last week.

Giants Injury Report

Player Injury Monday Tuesday Wednesday Status
RB Saquon Barkley Ankle DNP DNP DNP OUT
OL Ben Brederson Concussion DNP DNP DNP OUT
ILB Micah McFadden Neck Limited Limited Limited Questionable
OLB Azeez Ojulari Hamstring Limited Limited Limited OUT
WR Wan’Dale Robinson Knee Limited Limited Limited Questionable
OT Andrew Thomas Hamstring Limited Limited Limited OUT

Monday Notes:

  • The Giants did not practice on Monday. Above is their estimated practice report.
  • According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Saquon Barkley’s ankle injury will keep the running back out of the game Thursday night. This is a big plus for the 49ers defense.

Tuesday Notes:

  • Giants head coach Brian Daboll told reporters he has yet to rule out running back Saquon Barkley for Thursday night. Daboll said Barkley has made considerable progress since being injured late Sunday in the Giants win over Arizona, and running back “is a quick healer.”
  • If Barkley is unable to go, the next man up for New York is former 49ers running back Matt Breida. The Giants also have Gary Brightwell and Eric Gray on their roster.

Wednesday Notes:

  • New York has ruled Saquon Barkley out for Thursday night. This is a big loss for the Giants who will now turn to Matt Breida as their top back.
  • The Giants will also be missing the left side of their offensive line with Ben Brederson and Andrew Thomas out. It’s looking like a feeding frenzy for the 49ers defensive line. Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has been sacked 10 times through the first two weeks of the season.
  • The New York defense will be without outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari. New York has yet to record a sack this season.

  1. The bad news is they have to play on Thursday.mother good news it’s against the Giants so it should be a win and maybe a little rest for some of the players.

    In watching the Cleveland Pittsburgh game, it’s amazing how much money (230 million guaranteed) Watson got and how lousy of a Quarterback he appears to be. 1 interception, 2 fumbles, 2 personal fouls and many bad throws. Cleveland just keeps making bad decisions and bad decisions.

    1. Well they are the “factory of sadness”, after all. That’s a lot to live up to. Or down to.

    2. I’m glad you’re here. I hope you accept your invitation, because if you’ve been looking for a way to earn residual income with almost no effort, then look no further. You’ve found it This is an opportunity vs02 you can run with for a long time to

    1. Actually, Felix, we Niner Fans can’t talk. Look at the bad decision the 49ers made in Trading away Trey Lance after giving up all those 1st round picks. What a waste. Fortunately, it hasn’t effected our game.

      1. K,
        Actually we REALLY can’t talk. The 49ers were aggressively looking into trading for Watson before his legal issues came out. If Lynch had moved a little quicker it could have been us.

        1. The Niners look at all quarterbacks that become available. They kick the tires. What evidence do you have that they were about to trade for Watson?

      2. How ridiculous. The Niners have made far fewer mistakes and have been one of the best teams in the league the past 5 years. No comparison.

      3. I don’t see trading Lance as a bad decision….I thought at the time, and still think, that doing what they did to draft him was a huge mistake…I’m glad he’s gone…it’ll prevent some of the pro Lance media from calling for a QB change after Brock Purdy throws an int, and getting his fellow Lance Jock Swingers from getting riled up and flooding the airwaves and print media with jughead commentary…

          1. Trey Lance believer? I have never been a Lance believer. I had questions about BP but that doesn’t make me a TL believer. Where do you come up with your posts?

              1. Find a single post where I advocated for TL. Your’e going to be looking for a long long time. You will have to go back to the start of the 22 season and there wasn’t any reason to advocate KS named him the starter in the off season.

              2. I guess all those comments about wanting Lance to start the season meant something else. You actually sounded hopeful that Purdy wouldn’t be ready despite all the evidence to the contrary so that Lance could. But go ahead and deny.

  2. Monday Night Football observations.

    1. The belief teams lose the week after playing the Niners was ended. Steelers bounced back just fine.

    2. Rumors the Niners were interested in Watson had appeared earlier. Fortunately, they didn’t work out, and Watson was awful against the Steelers.

    3. Browns wore throwback uniforms to their AAFC days. Looked good then, looked good Monday. And Watson is no Otto Graham, not by a long shot—he is many Ohio counties from Graham.

  3. In the 2019 Superbowl year, the 49ers were having a great year. They were 11-2 and playing the 4-9 Atlanta Falcons and lost 29-22. Don’t overlook any NFL team. This Giants team was a playoff team last year and expected to be a playoff team this year. They will be without Barkley but that only means every other player on that roster feels the need to step up. This game won’t be a walk in the park. Giants have talent and they are well coached.

  4. We all agree that the Niners bungled in a major way the 3 picks for TL. Still hard to figure out how smart people made such a mistake. That said, Purdy is far better than TL who, as a former Hall of Fame Niner QB said, TL is a solid backup but will never be a first-rate starter. Purdy will be. It was painful to admit the mistake and to trade him for not very much, but it was necessary.
