49ers-Rams Injury Report: Smith, Staley, Johnson, Martin don’t practice

Dec 22, 2016 at 2:12 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers had a short week this week to prepare to play the Los Angeles Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday.

WR Torrey Smith remains in the concussion protocol and has not practiced over the past two weeks. He suffered the 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 on Wednesday. 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 will be without their other starting wide receiver, Quinton Patton, who broke his foot on Sunday against the Falcons and was placed on injured reserve.

OT Joe Staley, who has been dealing with a hamstring issue, missed yet another practice. The 49ers' best offensive lineman has missed the team's last two games. On Wednesday, 49ers head coach Chip Kelly stated that Staley has not been placed on injured reserve because there is still hope that he can play this year. The 49ers currently have 16 players on injured reserve.

CB Dontae Johnson and C Marcus Martin also did not practice today.

Below are the Thursday practice participation reports for both the 49ers and the Rams.

We know, eventually, Trey Lance will be the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. He has to be. The team gave up too much to trade up and grab him with the No. 3 overall pick. Head coach Kyle Shanahan's future is dependent on Lance developing into a playmaker. That development, however, does not appear to include starting as a rookie. "We know Trey is the future here, and we're trying to do what's best for him and for our team," Shanahan said on Monday. "And Trey's coming off a pretty big injury, and we're going to keep bringing him along and keep getting him prepared as good as he can be to always be ready to come in and help on the plays that we ask him to do. Always be ready to take over if Jimmy gets hurt and being ready to be the future for us

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 7 contest against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Tackle Trent Williams, quarterback Trey Lance, and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw have missed three consecutive practices. Williams suffered an ankle sprain during the 49ers' Week 5 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Kyle Shanahan repeated what he said on Thursday, that the veteran tackle tweaked the injury during Monday's practice. The final decision on Williams will go all the way up to game time, said the coach. For now, he has been ruled "doubtful." Rookie Jaylon Moore will start if
