Nov 1, 2023, 3:30 PM
More of the same followed the 49ers in Week 8, now on a three-game skid as they enter their bye week. But could the addition of star pass rusher Chase Young revitalize the defense? That remains to be seen.
On the latest episode of the “Return of the Empire podcast,” Amil Fragoso and Nate Littlefield recap the 49ers’ Week 8 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. They also discuss the 49ers trade deadline results, their trade for Young and how he fits in with the defense. Also, the boys are joined by 49ers personality Larry Krueger, giving his insight as to where the 49ers stand entering Week 9.
All that & much more on the Return of the Empire.
“I think the proof is in what’s translating on the field. He’s been playing a lot and looking really good. So, there’s preliminary medical stuff where they send medical files and all that and then the last step is him flying out here today and doing the actual physical. So, we hope that all goes well, but it sure looks like he’s been healthy based upon what he’s been doing on the field,” 49ers general manager John Lynch said about Chase Young Wednesday.
