49ers defensive lineman Damontre Moore will miss the rest of the 2019 season.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan announced on Monday that Moore has been placed on injured reserve after breaking his forearm in Sunday night’s win over the Packers. Moore signed with the team two weeks ago when Ronald Blair went on injured reserve and had five tackles and a forced fumble in two games.

“I can’t tell you how impressed we were,” Shanahan said, via NBCSportsBayArea.com. “We didn’t know he had a broken forearm until after my press conference yesterday. The guy didn’t tell anybody because he didn’t know it was broken.”

The 49ers are expected to promote defensive lineman Jeremiah Valoaga from the practice squad. He played nine games for the Lions last season.

  1. Sorry for the man. He’s one of many promising players cast off by the lowly Giants who prospered under good coaching.

    _—————-;

    Moore had some serious immaturity issues as well as teammate issues when he was in NY.
    He was released after getting into an altercation and over the last 4 years has been on 5 or 6 different rosters.
    He was even on Seattle and Pete Carroll didn’t keep him.
    It wasn’t NYG coaching that was the problem.
    Moore has always had some talent….but he is a serious head case.

  3. He had obviously matured a lot from his early days, and was a wonderful part of the 49ers…the 54th man who could not make it on final cut because of the stacked talent on DL.

    His play was impactful for both games, and was so glad to be there…just hate that he won’t get to play any longer this year because he was a great story!
