49ers injury news: Matt Breida won’t play vs. Packers, per report

Nov 24, 2019 at 11:45 AM--

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida, who was listed as "doubtful," will not play tonight against the Green Bay Packers, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The news is not a surprise, as Breida was not expected to play. He, along with kicker Robbie Gould, were the only two 49ers players listed as "doubtful."

Breida did not play last weekend against the Arizona Cardinals after aggravating an ankle injury during Week 10's matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

"I think we've seen with Matt over the years, you look at players' history, and when he's been banged up, sometimes it's led to a situation where he can play, but he is continually having to come out with things," general manager John Lynch said this past week. "I think we're trying to just get him healthy because when he's healthy, he's a dynamic back. When compromised, he's a smaller guy, and it's tough for him to play effectively.

"So we want to get him fully healthy. I think that's been our focus and the word from the docs? A couple of weeks would help."

The good news is that three of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's most reliable targets, tight end George Kittle (knee, ankle) and wide receivers Deebo Samuel (shoulder) and Emmanuel Sanders (ribs), are all expected to play.

The only players ruled out of tonight's game are defensive end Dee Ford (quadricep, hamstring) and tackle Joe Staley (finger).

San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Trent Williams signed his reworked contract last week. Included was wording that prevents the team from using the franchise tag on him next year. That means that Williams and the 49ers must agree on a new contract extension before he hits free agency in 2021, or agree to part ways. As part of his reworked contract with the 49ers, OT Trent Williams cannot be franchise tagged after this season, per source. The eventual goal for both sides remains a long-term deal for the 7-time Pro Bowler.— Field Yates (@FieldYates)

Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated reports that he received a message from a "well-placed source," saying that talk surrounding New York Jets safety Jamal Adams possibly heading to the San Francisco 49ers is "picking up steam." "This doesn't mean Adams is coming to the 49ers," Cohn notes, "but it certainly has more reality than it did a few days ago. And it would be a big deal."
