Pat’s update: The 49ers have made it official.

 The San Francisco 49ers suffered a bevy of injuries in Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams [url=http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-adrian-colbert-jersey]http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-adrian-colbert-jersey[/url] , but the most devastating will be safety Adrian Colbert. Kyle Shanahan announced in his Monday press conference that Colbert has a high ankle sprain and will go on injured reserve. The earliest Colbert can return in in Week 16 due to IR rules, but he might be effectively shut down for the season given how late his return could be. Keep in mind, the team can only return two players from IR. Dekoda Watson and Marcell Harris are both practicing right now, so if those two are brought back, Colbert’s season is over. Beyond Colbert, several players are day-to-day; Matt Breida with a tweaked ankle, Marquise Goodwin with also a tweaked ankle [url=http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-brock-coyle-jersey]Brock Coyle jersey[/url] , and Jaquiski Tartt with what Shanahan describes as a stinger. Reuben Foster is the only person that is a sure thing for practice on Wednesday. With Colbert being out, Shanahan has indicated reps for D.J. Reed are in order. This is not unlike Colbert coming in mid-season in 2017 and making an impact. For now, Reed will get some valuable safety reps to help him as a rookie and hopefully make set him up for 2019 when the 49ers are competitive again (maybe?). Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre loves getting excited about his fellow Southern Miss gunslingers.Favre has been friends with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens dating back to Mullens time at Southern Miss when he was passing Favre in the Golden Eagles record book. Favre praised Mullens after a strong preseason campaign, and called in to speak with Mullens during the NFL Network postgame show.On Monday, Favre made an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio to take it a step further (h/t Cam Inman). He talked about how Mullens was legit and could make all the throws. He made a reference to Tom Brady, if only to talk about players just needing opportunity to make something happen. He did not appear to be calling Mullens the next Brady, but rather compare simply getting the opportunity to show what they could each do.That’s all well and good [url=http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-richard-sherman-jersey]Authentic Richard Sherman jersey[/url] , but it’s worth noting this is not the first time Favre has invoked Brady to talk about the importance of a Southern Miss Golden Eagle quarterback getting an opportunity. In 2014, Austin Davis moved into the then St. Louis Rams’ starting lineup after Shaun Hill got hurt. He had a pair of three touchdown games, and then on October 19th, he put together a huge game against the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Hill completed 17 of 20 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns en route to a 28-26 win.Later that week, Favre told ESPN’s Ed Werder that Davis could “definitely play at this level.” Then he went a step further to make another comment on getting an opportunity.Hoyer is the random name there, but given how Davis’ career progressed, that might actually be the most useful comparison of the three mentioned. Hoyer sat on the bench for three years in New England and then much of a year in Arizona before getting a shot to start in Cleveland — fittingly enough [url=http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-weston-richburg-jersey]Youth Weston Richburg jersey[/url] , with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.But Hoyer aside, Favre sure does enjoy making that Brady comparison when it comes to his fellow Golden Eagles. At the time of Davis’ very brief time in the spotlight with St. Louis, he was the only other Southern Miss quarterback after Favre to start more than one NFL game.Nick Mullens has a chance to turn that group into a trio if he gets the start next Monday against the New York Giants. If he has another solid outing, I’m sure we’ll hear more from Brett Favre!
