K’Waun Williams suffered a high-ankle sprain during 49ers-Packers, per report

Nov 5, 2020 at 10:55 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers will likely again be without cornerback K'Waun Williams, who missed three games earlier this season with an ACL sprain. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said that the team's primary slot corner had sustained an ankle injury during Thursday night's 34-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers. According to Matt Barrows of The Athletic, Williams suffered a high-ankle sprain, which could sideline him for at least the team's November 15 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Jamar Taylor replaced William against the Packers. He finished the game with five tackles.

The only other injury that Shanahan noted was to Jaquiski Tartt, who suffered a toe injury. The safety was returning after missing two games due to a groin injury.

They're two more injuries to an already depleted 49ers roster currently sitting at 4-5 and in last place within the NFC West.

"Obviously, it's the most injuries throughout the entire NFL that we've seen," linebacker Fred Warner said after the game, "but with the guys we have, I think we've still got a lot of great football players on our team. And I think we've just got to get back to work, and we'll make sure we're competing at a high level come next game."

The San Francisco 49ers are among several teams that have held pre-draft virtual meetings with former Michigan running back Chris Evans. The news was brought to us by Danish journalist Søren Hansen, who was the first to report the date of Justin Fields' second pro day. "Michigan's RB Chris Evans has had zoom calls with the 49ers, Bengals, Patriots, Vikings, Giants and Chiefs," reads a translated tweet by Hansen. "Did not get much playing time in college and sat out in 2019, but is a great back and a good receiver who had a strong Pro Day. Interesting name for the bottom of the third day of the draft." Evans (5-11, 211) carried the football 16 times for just 73 yards

Private coach John Beck, a former NFL quarterback who played for then-offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in Washington, worked with quarterback Justin Fields of Ohio State this offseason. Beck remains close with Shanahan, and has been working with quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State in recent weeks. That is no coincidence. Fields and Lance are among the most likely prospects to be selected No. 3 overall by the San Francisco 49ers. ESPN's Dan Graziano reports that Lance has been working with Beck at the Niners' request. San Francisco provided Beck with a list of drills it wanted to see from Lance, which means it was heavily involved in the planning of Monday's

The 2021 NFL Draft is a three-day event from April 29th to May 1st that will be hosted in Cleveland, Ohio. A select number of draft prospects will be invited to Cleveland to walk across the stage and shake hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL Draft will also feature draft prospects participating remotely across the country. Last month, the 49ers arguably made their most aggressive move since trading Joe Montana, as they gave up multiple picks to jump from No. 12 to No. 3 in this year's NFL Draft. The first Mock Draft Roundup featured primarily defensive players but NFL pundits have now shifted their 49ers mock drafts to the quarterback position.

Why the 49ers should not draft Mac Jones at No. 3

Shockwaves reverberated around the NFL last month when the 49ers traded up with the Miami Dolphins to the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. By giving away its first- and third-round picks in 2022, and another first-rounder in 2023, San Francisco made its mega move in upgrading the quarterback room for its foreseeable future. While the team has maintained a public stance of keeping current quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this coming season, this trade signified its dissatisfaction with Garoppolo's services, as the 49ers are expected to select his successor with their third overall pick in the draft at the end of this month. Most predict that the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets, who hold the first and second overall picks in this year's draft,
