The 49ers think they're unlucky.

For eight seasons in a row, the 49ers have ranked among the league leaders in games lost to injury. Just last season, they led the entire NFL in this statistic.

Bad luck certainly is part of their issue -- football is an inherently violent game and people get hurt while playing it.

But the 49ers also create their own bad luck, because they hurt each other and themselves during practices. Since Kyle Shanahan became head coach in 2017, 32 players have gotten injured in a 49ers practice or weight-training session. 

Here is the complete list. I will add to it as more practice injuries occur. If the 49ers simply could minimize these injuries, they'd return to the league average in terms of games lost.
