When the 49ers canceled their OTA practice on Monday, it felt like Thursday’s practice would not happen either. But then a couple of teams around the NFL decided not to hold the mandatory minicamp scheduled for next week.
New Texans head coach David Culley said, “our participation in OTA has been great for us here. We have achieved what we wanted to achieve. “When I saw it right away ‘oh, the 49ers are probably doing the same thing.’
Niner head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke to the media on Wednesday afternoon and canceled the mandatory minicamp after losing three players in all or half of the 2021
We had such a large turnout. We got 89 guys to participate in OTAs. The one guy who did not show up was Dee (Ford) and he has been here and rehearsing since February.
Nick Bosa has been to Santa Clara and rehearsed. Shanahan also mentioned that some rookies would stick around.
Shanahan explained that Jeff Wilson Jr. was injured after getting out of a chair awkwardly. He said Tarvarius Moore did an exercise in the air with no one around him and his Achilles went out. Justin Skule was the lone injury that involved contact. Skule was injured during a pass set.
Shanahan said Moore and Skule were injured within three pieces.
