Garcon (knee) will not play in Monday's game against the Giants, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon didn't practice all week, so this designation shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Look for some combination of Kendrick Bourne, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor to fill in for the veteran wide receiver with Marquise Goodwin serving as the primary receiving option.

Garcon (knee) did not practice Saturday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon's official status will likely be released later Saturday, but consider the veteran receiver questionable for Monday's game after failing to practice at all this week. Should Garcon miss any time, Kendrick Bourne, Richie James, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor would compete for the extra snaps.

Garcon (knee) didn't practice Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Banged up for most of the season, Garcon finally broke through with a 3-56-1 receiving line in last Thursday's blowout win over the Raiders. An absence Monday night against the Giants would free up snaps for some combination of Kendrick Bourne, Richie James, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor.

Garcon (knee) didn't take part in practice Thursday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

On the heels of a three-catch, 56-yard, one-touchdown performance last Thursday versus the Raiders, Garcon continues to tend to a knee injury, which forced an absence Week 8. Considering this last fact, his status should be monitored closely to learn if he'll be available to the 49ers offense Monday against the Giants.

Garcon (undisclosed) wasn't present at practice Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 49ers held Garcon out Week 8 in Arizona due to a combination of knee and shoulder injuries, but the cause of Thursday's absence is unknown. Coming off his most productive game of the season with third-stringer Nick Mullens under center -- three catches for 56 yards and a touchdown last Thursday against the Raiders -- Garcon will be a safety net for Mullens as long as he's healthy. Consequently, Garcon's status is worth watching as Monday's game versus the Giants approaches.

Garcon (shoulder/knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Though Garcon seems to be in less-than-full health entering the Week 9 contest, he'll likely be a fixture in both three- and two-wideout sets throughout the night with slot man Trent Taylor (coach's decision) inactive. Unfortunately for Garcon, steady snaps haven't yielded much production in his prior seven appearances this season, with the veteran maxing out at five catches and 57 receiving yards. His ceiling will likely be lower than that Thursday with unproven quarterback Nick Mullens directing the offense in his first meaningful NFL action.

Garcon (shoulder/knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday's contest against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

The 49ers only held two walk-throughs this week, and both times Garcon was given a "limited" tag. He followed a similar practice regimen before his last game Week 7, when he turned a single target into five yards. If he's active Thursday, Garcon will seek a more fruitful outcome against an Oakland defense that has given up 8.9 YPT and nine touchdowns to wide receivers this season.

Garcon (shoulder/knee) was listed as a limited participant on the 49ers' estimated injury report Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon graduated from a non-participant Monday, but the team went through another walkthrough so he wasn't fully tested. The 32-year-old was the subject of trade rumors recently, but the 49ers allowed Tuesday's deadline to pass without making a move. Garcon was inactive for Sunday's loss at Arizona but is trending in the right direction for Thursday's game against Oakland.

Garcon (shoulder/knee) was listed as a non-participant on the 49ers' estimated injury report Monday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

A topic of trade proposals in advance of Tuesday's deadline, Garcon continues to deal with injuries to his shoulder and knee, which sidelined him Sunday at Arizona and threaten his status for Thursday's game versus the Raiders. If he's held out again, the 49ers will trot out Marquise Goodwin and Kendrick Bourne as the top options at wide receiver.

The 49ers have fielded calls from at least three teams this week interested in acquiring Garcon (knee), who has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon's lingering knee injury has apparently done little to diminish his value on the trade market for teams searching for cheap, veteran help at receiver as Tuesday's deadline approaches. At 1-6 heading into Sunday's contest and with little hope of securing a playoff spot, the 49ers could be motivated to ship out Garcon, who is due $5.6 million in 2019 on top of his $6.6 million salary for the current campaign. Garcon has notched 21 receptions for 230 yards and no touchdowns through the 49ers' first seven games this season.
