Javon Kinlaw underwent reconstruction surgery on the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in late October. The 49ers defensive tackle is making progress in his rehab.

OurSF49ers shared a video of Kinlaw running at the team facility in Santa Clara.

I’m feeling amazing,” Kinlaw recently told Brad Graham of TheSFNiners. “Really, honest, I’ve had nothing but ups, no downs. Knock on wood. Everything has been progressing the right way. As far as from a health standpoint, I already feel healthier than I was last year when I was on the field, so I’m just excited to really get back out there and just be able to really showcase what a healthy Javon Kinlaw can do for this organization.”

Kinlaw had eight tackles and a quarterback hit in his four appearances last season.

The 14th overall choice in the 2020 draft has appeared in only 18 games with 16 starts in two seasons. He has 41 tackles, 1.5 sacks and an interception.

  1. Career questionable/doubtful/out status, another wasted pick. “ACL reconstruction surgery,” isn’t exactly a term that instills confidence in his durability. Another immense talent that will never make an impact.

  2. Hopefully San Fran can exorcise whatever demon they offended that has cause so many injuries to their DL and RB’s.

  3. He’s a big part of the future of the team. Lynch can’t afford to have Kinlaw AND Lance bust out.

  4. John lynch needs to stop channelling his inner baalke. As in – signing players with medical issues. It’s cost the niners dearly and he needs to get smarter

  5. Frank Gore tore his left ACL TWICE and had surgery both times. Virtually the same age as Kinlaw and he wound up doing pretty well in the NFL
