49ers-Cardinals Injury Report: Sherman doesn’t practice; Mullens, Mostert done for the season

Dec 22, 2020 at 3:16 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 16 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Several players did not practice on Tuesday. Among them are cornerback Richard Sherman, who is day-to-day with a calf injury, and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, who is day-to-day with a knee injury. Others who are day-to-day are defensive end Dion Jordan (knee sprain) and safety Tarvarius Moore (knee sprain).

Head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that three players, quarterback Nick Mullens, running back Raheem Mostert, and wide receiver Deebo Samuel, are done for the remainder of the season. Mullens may require surgery for the elbow injury he suffered during Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys while Mostert re-aggravated his ankle injury. Samuel was only expected to return from his hamstring injury should the 49ers make the playoffs, which will not occur.

Safety Jimmie Ward is in the concussion protocol. Cornerback Jason Verrett returned to practice after missing Sunday's game due to an illness.

The 49ers opened the practice window for Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle). However, Shanahan doesn't expect the quarterback to play on Saturday, which means C.J. Beathard is likely to start. The coach also stated that there is a chance that tight end George Kittle (foot) returns to the football field against the Cardinals.

Below are Tuesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Cardinals, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Divisional playoff contest against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Defensive end Nick Bosa remains in the concussion protocol, and being cleared will be a challenge due to the short week of preparation. The good news is that he returned to practice on Wednesday. Although, he was listed as a "limited" participant. Bosa was on the field with his teammates for the pre-practice walkthrough but headed to the locker room before practice started. Excellent sign as

Deebo Samuel doesn't even know how to define his role in 49ers' offense

49ers' wide receiver Deebo Samuel was named an AP 1st Team All-Pro for the first time in his young career on Friday. He is the first 49ers wide receiver to earn that honor since Terrell Owens earned his third nod back in 2002. There is no doubt that Deebo deserved the honor as he posted eye-popping stats during his 2021 campaign: 1st in yards per reception (18.2) 3rd in yards from scrimmage (1770) 5th in receiving yards (1405) 3rd amongst wide receivers in total touchdowns (14) Set an NFL record for rushing touchdowns by a receiver (8) It's hard to argue that Deebo wasn't the most valuable player on the 49ers' offense this season, and his versatility is largely the reason why. Not only was he the team's number one receiving
