The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 16 contest against the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Cornerbacks Richard Sherman (hamstring) and K'Waun Williams (concussion) are on track to play on Saturday. Both practiced for the third consecutive day and did not appear on Thursday's injury report.

Safety Jaquiski Tartt (ribs) and defensive end Dee Ford (quadricep, hamstring) continue to miss practice and have been ruled out for Saturday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan doesn't expect Ford to return until the playoffs.

"I'd be shocked if he was ready for Seattle," Shanahan said Thursday morning on KNBR. "I'm counting on him being ready for the first playoff game, whether that's a Wildcard game or whether it's a week off and a divisional game at home."

Defensive lineman Jullian Taylor returned to practice for the first time since suffering a ligament injury in his elbow during Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens. He has been ruled out for Saturday, however. Shanahan said after Thursday's practice that he hopes to have Taylor back for Week 17.

Guard Mike Person is listed as "questionable" for Saturday due to a neck injury. Shanahan was asked about the plan should Person be unable to play.

"(Daniel) Brunskill can play guard," Shanahan responded. "(Justin) Skule can play guard. We'd most likely lean toward Brunskill, though."


Below are the official injury reports for the 49ers and Rams, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff. Also included are this week's practice participation reports.
