49ers-Rams Injury Report: Torrey Smith, Joe Staley don’t practice; Goff does for Rams

Dec 21, 2016 at 2:41 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have a short week this week as the team prepares to face the Los Angeles Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday, which also happens to be Christmas Eve.

"[Torrey Smith is] in the concussion protocol," 49ers head coach Chip Kelly said this morning while addressing the media. Smith suffered a concussion on December 11 against the New York Jets and missed the team's game this past Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

"I'm feeling way better but there's still some issues there," Smith said on KNBR 680 this morning. He said that he has not yet passed the tests necessary to move on from the concussion protocol and would not commit to playing on Saturday.

"I take the test (again) later this week," Smith said. "So we'll see." The 49ers only have two games remaining on their schedule. After playing the Rams, the team will host the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium in their season finale.

The 49ers are also without WR Quinton Patton, who broke his foot on Sunday against the Falcons. He, along with LB Nick Bellore, TE Blake Bell, and CB Jimmie Ward, was placed on injured reserve this week.

OT Joe Staley, who has been dealing with a hamstring issue, did not practice. Staley has missed the 49ers' last two games. This morning, Kelly was asked why Staley is not on injured reserve. "Because there's a hope that Joe can continue to play this year," Kelly answered.

RELATED Jared Goff fully practices, likely to start against 49ers

For the Rams, QB Jared Goff was a full participant in practice today, which would indicate that he has cleared the concussion protocol and can start on Saturday against the 49ers.

49ers don't expect Jimmy Garoppolo to be active vs. Eagles; Deebo Samuel added to injury list

It was unlikely that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suited up on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, serving as rookie Brock Purdy's backup in the NFC Championship Game. Still, there was a slight chance the injured veteran could be healthy enough to be active. The team awaited the results of an X-ray on Tuesday to see how much Garoppolo's broken foot has recovered. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Wednesday and shared that the 49ers got the X-ray results. "I don't expect to have him this week," Shanahan revealed. Garoppolo sustained his injury on December 4. A return for the Super Bowl remains a possibility. A new name was added to the 49ers' injury report. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel will not practice

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their NFC Championship Game contest against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Aside from tackle Trent Williams returning from his veteran day off, nothing changed compared to Wednesday's practice participation report. Two 49ers running backs sat out Wednesday's practice due to injuries. Nothing changed for Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell on Thursday. Neither participated in the afternoon session. However, McCaffrey was on hand for the team's walk-through before practice. How concerned is the 49ers head coach about his running backs' statuses? "Same concerns I had yesterday," Kyle Shanahan said. One person who isn't

The San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles are facing off in a highly-anticipated NFC Championship Game on Sunday, which marks a matchup between the two most complete rosters in the NFL. However, the paths that each team took to reach their final destination were completely different, as the 49ers struggled to begin the season, starting 3-4 before winning their past 12 games, while the Eagles began the season 13-1 before dropping two of their last three games. But, there is one clear similarity when discussing the two teams ahead of the NFC Championship Game: the past does NOT
