The 49ers have placed receiver Marquise Goodwin on injured reserve, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Goodwin has chronic knee and foot injuries.

He played nine games with six starts this season but had only one special teams snap in Week 13 and was inactive Sunday. Goodwin has not seen action on offense since Week 11.

Goodwin finishes his seventh season with 12 catches for 186 yards and a touchdown.

He has said he hopes to compete in the 2020 Olympics in Japan this summer. He finished 10th in the long jump at the 2012 Games but hasn’t competed in track since 2016 when he failed to qualify for the Olympics a second time.

Goodwin would have to start training relatively quickly to have a chance to make Team USA.

  1. No loss. His production has completely fallen off. You have to be among the best of the best to don the red and gold and he just isn’t in that class anymore. Lucky for him I’m sure the Seahawks could use another second tier receiver.

  2. Same problem with the Bills. Dude just won’t stop training for the Olympics and it’s breaking him down.

    Amazing person, great player but man he needs to give up the Olympics. He uses up all his wear and tear for long jump training and is practically stealing money from his teams knowing he isn’t giving football 100%

  3. I do think he has played his final NFL season and has fallen off quite a bit, but was solid on some really bad 49ers teams. A good guy and I wish him the best.

  4. Too bad..his speed could really help this team, very disappointing, don’t know what happened to him. Had high hopes for him and Pettis then boom right off the cliff for both of them.
