The 49ers placed Marquise Goodwin on injured reserve Tuesday, a move which will almost certainly end the wide receiver’s three-season tenure with the team.
Goodwin, 29, appeared on the injury report Friday with knee and foot issues. Before Friday’s appearance, Goodwin had only appeared on the injury report – officially termed the practice participation report – because he missed practice for personal reasons.
Goodwin was not active for Sunday’s 48-46 win over New Orleans after he was listed as questionable.
“He’s had some wear and tear, some chronic stuff,” head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday when asked about Goodwin’s appearance on the injury report. “Then it just flamed up enough that we had to list it today.”
It was determined Goodwin needed to undergo a course of tratment for his chronic leg issues that would end his season.
Goodwin had 12 catches for 186 yards and a touchdown this season, but had been largely absent from the offense for over a month. He had one catch for five yards on six targets in his past four games and had averaged 10 snaps. He’d also been a healthy scratch for two contests.
Goodwin likely won’t be retained in the offseason. He has a $3.95 million non-guaranteed base salary in 2020.
The 49ers will have two open roster spots once they place center Weston Richburg (knee) on injured reserve this week.
