During a Monday morning conference call, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said safety Talanoa Hufanga officially confirmed that Hufanga would be sidelined for the rest of the season due to a torn ACL, David Bonilla of 49ers Webzone reports. The good news is that Shanahan and the 49ers expect the injured safety to be ready for Week 1 of the 2024 season.

"They don't think there was any meniscus or anything, so it was as clean as it could be for just being ACL," Shanahan said.

The coach added, "He'll need a plan for training camp, but with the time and everything, if everything goes smoothly, he should be ready for Week 1."

In Hufanga's absence, rookie safety Ji'Ayir Brown took the field and delivered an impressive performance, breaking up a pass in the end zone and securing an interception. Brown is set to start alongside Tashaun Gipson for the remainder of the season.
