Fred Warner has “a chance” to play next weekend


The 49ers got a win in Dallas on Sunday, but they lost a pair of key defensive players to injury en route to the 23-17 victory.

Defensive end Nick Bosa suffered a concussion and linebacker Fred Warner injured his ankle during the game. Bosa will have to go through the concussion protocol to be cleared in time to play against the Packers next Saturday and defensive lineman Arik Armstead said, via, that he thinks it is “not too serious.”

Warner is set for testing on Monday, but head coach Kyle Shanahan isn’t ruling him out at this point.

“I think it’s similar to what he did earlier in the year when he had one,” Shanahan said, via “We’re not sure yet. He’s got a chance.”

The 49ers were able to hold off a Cowboys comeback effort despite the injuries, but having all hands on deck at Lambeau Field would make their chances of staying alive another week look a lot better.

  1. Kind of interesting how once the playoffs started the entire COVID thing came to an abrupt ending. Nobody was left off of rosters for a positive test. Makes you wonder did the NFL just stop testing players or all of the sudden did none of the players mysteriously contract the virus? See where I am going with this????
