Injury Update On 49ers Former 1st-Round Pick

He was placed on the injured reserve back on Oct. 16.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that the plan is for defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw to return to practice during Week 16.

Given Shanahan's words, it would appear that Kinlaw will not return for Thursday night's game against the Seattle Seahawks, but it appears the twenty-five-year-old could be designated for a return in Week 16.

For his three-year career, Kinlaw has 43 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, one interception and four passes defended across 21 games. He is a former first-round pick by the 49ers in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Finally, some good injury news for the 49ers, who have had to deal with some tough luck to key players lately.
