Aaron Rodgers a distraction, Josh Allen is overpaid, Steelers are back: Worst overreactions from NFL Week 1

  Aaron Rodgers a distraction, Josh Allen is overpaid, Steelers are back: Worst overreactions from NFL Week 1 Everything seems bigger in Week 1 with panic and hyperbole aplenty baked into every storyline. These were the worst overreactions from the NFL's opening weekend and what they might mean.Disappointing losing performances looks the worst thing ever for a team or a player. Likewise, positive developments in impressive victories appear to be the best things going.

The 49 ers are down to three healthy wide receivers, though Shanahan said he would be surprised if rookie Brandon Aiyuk is not available for the team's game Sunday against the New York Jets. The 49 ers started Kendrick Bourne and Dante Pettis at wide receiver on Sunday in the team's season-opening "But I wouldn' t rule that out at all. He's available, and he's definitely a guy I really respect, and I think everyone in this league respects. So we'll see how it goes this week."

The 49 ers will have their fair share of options with the No. 2 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. That is, if they stay there. It's officially draft month now that April is here, and the 49 ers are slated to only have six selections come April 25. On the latest episode of The Adam Schefter Podcast, 49 ers coach Kyle Shanahan spoke on the Or if Bosa goes first, QB-starved teams might offer a trade the 49 ers can' t refuse. "If people call you and they want something bad enough, you always listen," Shanahan said. "If that can help our organization out more than one guy, that's something we would never hesitate to do."

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The injuries at running back for the San Francisco 49ers keep piling up so much that coach Kyle Shanahan said the team could consider bringing back Frank Gore for another stint.

After losing starter Raheem Mostert to a season-ending knee injury in the season opener, San Francisco lost Jamycal Hasty to an ankle injury in Week 2 and Shanahan is uncertain whether rookies Trey Sermon and Elijah Mitchell will be healthy enough to play this week.

That led to questions about whether the 38-year-old Gore could be an option. Gore is the franchise’s career leading rusher with 11,073 yards in 10 seasons in San Francisco. He left the Niners after the 2014 season and is currently not with a team but ranks third all time with 16,000 yards rushing.

San Francisco 49 ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday afternoon, the day after the team's costly 31-13 victory over the New York Jets, and provided several injury updates. Defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas were not among the updates. RELATED 49 ers RB Tevin Coleman expected to miss "multiple weeks," per Schefter. "If he's good to go, and the doctors say he's healthy, and he can go out there and protect himself, and if Jimmy feels confident in doing it, and gives us the best chance to win, in that case, Jimmy will be out there," Shanahan said.

49 ers will have better free-agent RB options than Gore in 2021 originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea. Frank Gore hasn’ t ruled out the possibility of returning to the NFL for a 17th season. Many have speculated the former 49 ers running back laced up his cleats for the final time in Week 16 for the New York Jets, but he’s leaving the door open for 2021. “I'm going to get some downtime with the fam, get back to Miami and chill out with my kids. Then I'll see what's up,” Gore told ESPN, via 95.7 The Game.

“We’ve never fully ruled that out,” Shanahan said. “I don’t know exactly where he is right now, but I’ve got a number of people in here who have a relationship with him. If that time ever comes that we need to do that and he wants to do it then I would never rule it out.”

Mitchell sat out practice Wednesday with a shoulder injury, but still has a chance to play this week. Sermon is working his way back from a concussion and took part in individual drills, but hasn't yet been cleared to play.

That makes game-planning for Sunday's matchup against Green Bay difficult not knowing who will be available.

“It alters a lot because you have to make sure you give different options in every situation," Shanahan said. "Especially when there’s a lot of unknown. There’s a chance we might be only be down one compared to last week. There’s a chance there might be a whole new group, which would be down to our sixth on the year. So, you have to plan for everything and that’s what you do.”

Who is Elijah Mitchell? Rookie from small Louisiana town now has big opportunity with 49ers

  Who is Elijah Mitchell? Rookie from small Louisiana town now has big opportunity with 49ers Elijah Mitchell is the next man up for the 49ers after an historic NFL debut, a huge leap from where the running back was five years ago.His father, Milton, said he had the sled made to help Mitchell train for college football. He'd watch Elijah pull it across a half-acre of land in Erath, Louisiana – his legs churning from one side of the yard to the other. Then, Milton would tell his son to drag it back.

The San Francisco 49 ers have Jimmy Garoppolo under contract for at least another two seasons, and the veteran quarterback is still less than a year removed from leading his team to the Super Bowl. As the 2021 offseason fast approaches, however, 49 ers coach Kyle Shanahan is not committing to Garoppolo as the Niners' future signal-caller. Asked Monday about Garoppolo's prospects of remaining San Francisco's starter, Shanahan defended the QB's resume and salary but refused to rule out pursuing a replacement.

The 49 ers will have their fair share of options with the No. 2 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. That is, if they stay there. It's officially draft month now that April is here, and the 49 ers are slated to only have six selections come April 25. On the latest episode of The Adam Schefter Podcast, 49 ers coach Kyle Shanahan spoke on the After winning only four games in 2018, Shanahan and Co. are looking to upgrade all over the field. There's only one position that the team will not prioritize early in the draft. "We can improve at every single position on our team I'd rule out quarterback right now," Shanahan said.

San Francisco claimed Trenton Cannon off waivers from Baltimore last week and signed running back Jacques Patrick off Cincinnati’s practice squad this week. The Niners also signed Chris Thompson to their practice squad Wednesday where they already have veteran Kerryon Johnson.

Patrick is a bigger back at 234 pounds, but has never appeared in an NFL game. Thompson played for Shanahan in 2013 in Washington and has 1,214 yards rushing and 1,918 yards receiving in eight seasons.

NOTES: DL Kevin Givens (ankle) is also out this week and will likely go on IR. ... DL Arik Armstead (adductor) didn't practice and CB Emmanuel Moseley (knee) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) were limited. ... S Jimmie Ward, LB Fred Warner and T Trent Williams got rest days. ... The Niners also signed DL Eddie Yarbrough to the practice squad and released TE Jordan Matthews from the practice squad.
