SANTA CLARA — Merely six days before their upcoming game against the Detroit Lions, the 49ers don’t know who their right guard will be.
It’s a big deal not to know who your right guard will be.
The 49ers lost both their starting right guard (Mike Person) and backup right guard (Joshua Garnett) Sunday during the 24-16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The 49ers fear neither will be ready for the next game.
“I know it’s going to be a big topic this week,” head coach Kyle Shanahan said during his Monday afternoon press conference. “We’ve got a foot strain for Person. Garnett dislocated his toe. We don’t know how long it’s going to be. The good news is nothing is broken with either of them. No I.R. or anything, but we’ve got to see how they respond to treatment during the week to have an idea of whether they have a chance this week, and going forward week to week after that. We need a few more days to understand that.”
