NFC Notes: 49ers, Falcons, Lions, Saints



  • 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said that rookie DL Kentavius Street, who is working his way back from an ACL tear, could start practicing this week even though he can’t play in games: “He’s ready to go. He’s been working his tail off and he’s been lifting too many weights. No, you can’t lift too many or be too big.” (Cam Inman)
  • Shanahan acknowledged that there will be making decisions made on whether NT Earl Mitchell, WR Pierre Garcon, and LB Malcolm Smith will be part of the team in 2019: “Those guys understand the business. They understand how it works.” (Eric Branch)
  • According to Tom Pelissero, 49ers QBs coach Rich Scangarello is a name that’s circulating as an offensive coordinator candidate worth watching in the coming months.




  • Saints HC Sean Payton said Monday that it’s still possible that either WR Ted Ginn Jr. or G Josh LeRibeus could return from injured reserve this season.
  • Mike Triplett notes that the Saints can only designate one of them to return.
