On the 49ers podcast with Jeremiah:
#1 The 49ers return from their bye week to a inflating Covid list making some thinking if playing a contact game call NFL football during a pandemic was the wise choice at all. But either way the 49ers are preparing for their meeting with the Los Angeles Rams for Sunday.
#2 49ers running back Jerrick McKinnon during the week of practice said “that’s the 2020 season for you” regarding the fewer players available and on the Covid list not to mention San Francisco’s other list the Injured List.
#3 Lets take a look at the Covid list Jeremiah and please talk about the players who the 49ers will miss this weekend in LA, left tackle Trent Williams, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, nose tackle DJ Jones, defensive end Jordan Willis, linebacker Joe Walker, tight end Daniel Helm who is on the 49ers practice squad.
#4 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that it a probability that a number of those players could get into the game in LA on Sunday. How safe would a negative test give relief and confidence that it’s safe to be playing against or with someone who just got off the Covid list?
#5 The Rams are 7-3 first in the NFC West and are coming off a big win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the 49ers come into Sunday’s game after suffering three straight losses the game is in LA set this one up for us.
