“I think getting them back is just a boost for our offense mentally just because they’re two leaders of our team, they’re both two captains, what they bring to the game,” 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said about the pair.
“I think guys just love having them out there. I don’t think the game unfolded much that way. Trent, by no means, [was] close to 100 percent. I thought it was pretty courageous just to be able to battle throughout that game. Deebo didn’t get involved that much. I know he got that reverse, but he didn’t get too much more. So I don’t think it had a huge impact on the game, but just the way it unfolded. Our players, I think, knowing they were going to be out there always gives them more confidence.”
