49ers-Rams Injury Report: Joe Staley, Dontae Johnson doubtful

Dec 23, 2016 at 1:26 PM--


On Christmas Eve, the San Francisco 49ers will play the Los Angeles Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The two teams have released their official injury reports for the game.

Earlier today, WR Torrey Smith became the 49ers' 17th player to be placed on injured reserve in 2016. He suffered a concussion on December 11 against the New York Jets and missed the team's game this past Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Smith had not practiced over the past two weeks after failing to pass tests needed to clear him from the concussion protocol.

The 49ers will also be without their other starting wide receiver, Quinton Patton, who broke his foot on Sunday against the Falcons and was one of the five players placed on injured reserve this week. The others were Smith, LB Nick Bellore, TE Blake Bell, and CB Jimmie Ward.

OT Joe Staley, who has been dealing with a hamstring issue, has missed the team's last two games. He is listed as doubtful against the Rams. 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 only other player listed as doubtful is CB Dontae Johnson.

Defensive tackle Aaron Donald didn't hide his feelings or mince words after being asked about the Los Angeles Rams' division rivals, the San Francisco 49ers. "I dislike the Niners.

No love at all towards them guys. I really dislike them, and we'll see them twice this year." Donald's feelings are understandable.
