The San Francisco 49ers had a difficult Monday of organized team activities. Offensive lineman Justin Skule tore his ACL and safety Tarvarius Moore tore his Achilles tendon during the same session.
Those setbacks, along with running back Jeff Wilson Jr. suffering a torn meniscus inside the team’s locker room on May 20, was more than enough for head coach Kyle Shanahan.
For Nick wagoner From ESPN, Shanahan confirmed Wednesday that the Niners will have no more OTAs and also canceled their mandatory minicamp scheduled for June 15-17.
“We are totally done,” Shanahan told reporters. “My plan was to get eight and then I was going to surprise them on Thursday and take them all bowling, but after our seventh practice with those two injuries and just the aura it gave him, I wasn’t going to go back and do one more just to do. one more. So I surprised them on the 8th instead of the 9th. “
Earlier in the day, the Houston Texans canceled their mandatory minicamp that will also run June 15-17. Head coach David Culley explained that he and the team leaders previously agreed to leave the camp if he was happy with the attendance and participation he saw during the volunteer OTAs.
According to Sarah Barshop On ESPN, the Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles canceled their mandatory minicamps early in the offseason.
While the Green Bay Packers are seemingly using the minicamp as the last stage for the showdown between club management and dissatisfied quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the 49ers are among the franchises that realize they can lose the most to mid-June of what is earned on the driving ranges.
