Kyle Shanahan didn't sound too happy with 49ers strong safety Jaquiski Tartt when talking to the media Tuesday. 

Tartt remains out from a toe injury that he sustained last season. 

"He isn’t ready to go, yet," Shanahan said. 'We thought he would be, with the time it’s been given. He isn’t.

"And that’s just a fact.”

Not too long after Shanahan's statements, ESPN's Field Yates reported the 49ers are working out a handful of veteran safeties. 

Tartt's season-ending injury came in Week 9 after being inactive the previous two weeks. He played seven games in 2020, totaling 30 tackles, four passes defensed and on interception. 

Tartt has never played a full season and only has reached double digits of games played three times in his six-year career. 

With Tartt sidelined, veteran Tavon Wilson has been starting alongside free safety Jimmie Ward with the first-team defense.
