  • Zane Gonzalez: Let go by San Fran

    The 49ers released Gonzalez (calf) from injured reserve Tuesday with an injury settlement, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

    After suffering a calf strain in San Francisco's Aug. 25 preseason finale, Gonzalez was moved to injured reserve last week ahead of final roster cutdowns. The transaction would have kept Gonzalez out for the rest of the season, but by agreeing to the settlement, he'll be able to hit the open market and sign with a team as soon as he's healthy. The move also clears cap space for San Francisco and leaves practice-squad member Matthew Wright as the top challenger to Jake Moody (quadricep) for the 49ers' kicking duties. Moody is the only kicker on the 53-man roster at the moment, but the 49ers could elevate Wright from the practice squad for the Week 1 game against Pittsburgh if there's any concern about the former's health.

  • 49ers' Zane Gonzalez: Placed on injured reserve

    The 49ers placed Gonzalez (calf) on injured reserve Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Gonzalez sustained a calf injury ahead of Friday's preseason game against the Chargers, and coach Kyle Shanahan recently said the kicker would be sidelined for a few weeks. However, unless Gonzalez is waived with an injury settlement at some point, he'll be forced to miss the 2023 season.

  • 49ers' Zane Gonzalez: Out a few weeks

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Saturday that Gonzalez will be sidelined for a few weeks due to a calf injury, Josh Dubow of The Associated Press reports.

    Gonzalez presumably injured his calf in pregame warmups ahead of Friday's exhibition against the Chargers, which left the 49ers without an available placekicker due to rookie Jake Moody's (quadriceps) own health concern. Moody is considered day-to-day versus Gonzalez's week-to-week prognosis, so the former seemingly has a leg up to be San Francisco's kicker Week 1at Pittsburgh.

  • 49ers' Zane Gonzalez: Will not return Friday

    Gonzalez will not return to Friday's preseason finale against the Chargers due to a calf injury, Lindsey Pallares of the 49ers' official site reports.

    Gonzalez has been filling in for rookie kicker Jake Moody (quadriceps). Now that both kickers are unavailable Friday, punter Mitch Wishnowsky will presumably handle kicking duties. The severity of Gonzalez's injury is unknown at this time.

  • 49ers' Zane Gonzalez: Dealt to 49ers

    Gonzalez, who previously appeared set to be released by the Panthers, was instead traded to the 49ers on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Gonzalez missed the majority of the 2022 season with a groin injury. Instead of bringing him back, the Panthers opted to re-sign his replacement, Eddy Pineiro after he drilled 33 of 35 field-goal attempts and 30 of 32 extra-point tries across 17 games. Gonzalez joins a 49ers roster that was previously without a kicker, and it remains to be seen if San Francisco brings any training camp competition to challenge him.

  • Zane Gonzalez: Set to be released

    The Panthers are slated to release Gonzalez, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    After missing most of the 2022 season with a groin injury, the Panthers decided to release Gonzalez and re-sign Eddy Pineiro. Pineiro's success in relief of Gonzalez last year likely led to the anticipated release of the 27-year-old kicker, who Rapoport relays is now fully healthy as he seeks a new squad for the 2023 campaign.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Hits IR, done for the year

    The Panthers placed Gonzalez (groin) on injured reserve Tuesday, possibly ending his 2022 season, David Newton of reports.

    Gonzalez may require surgery to address a groin injury he sustained during Carolina's preseason finale versus Buffalo, and the timing of the 27-year-old kicker's placement on IR means he will miss the entire 2022 campaign unless he works out an injury settlement with the team. The Panthers don't currently have another kicker on the roster, meaning the team will have to prioritize making a signing in the aftermath of league-wide roster cutdowns.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Surgery TBD per Rhule

    Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said Monday that it's yet to be determined if Gonzalez (groin) will need surgery or how long he'll be out, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Gonzalez suffered the injury during Friday's preseason finale, but the extent of the issue remains unknown, though he is expected to miss a significant amount of time. He's currently the only kicker on Carolina's roster, so expect the Panthers to make a move for a replacement soon. More information on Gonzalez's status should come closer to Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline.

  • Panthers' Zane Gonzalez: Likely out long term

    Gonzalez is expected to be placed on injured reserve after suffering a "significant" groin injury, Ellis L. Williams of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    It's unclear if the injury is of the season-ending variety, but it certainly appears as if the veteran kicker will be out for a long period of time regardless. The Panthers don't currently have another kicker on the active, so expect the team to sign one shortly after roster cutdowns occur.
