Injury updates: Shanahan said CB Ahkello Witherspoon had a setback

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan met with the media Monday afternoon to provide a couple of injury and status updates on the team. Shanahan said that CB Ahkello Witherspoon and OT Joe Staley have an outside chance at playing next Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Witherspoon had a minor setback last week. While there’s still a chance Witherspoon could return Sunday, Shanahan isn’t as hopeful as he was last week. Staley will try and practice this week. The 49ers play a week from Thursday, so resting two starts those extra few days would make more sense.
