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.

Fred Warner feels the 49ers have done a great job informing players about the vaccine

The NFL reportedly informed teams that it would not extend the 18-week season to accommodate a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players. Last year, there were multiple postponements as the league navigated through the bizarre season amid a pandemic. There will be no rescheduling of games in 2021. The league hopes players will take it upon themselves to get vaccinated and protect themselves and their families as training camps get set to kick off. Should there be an outbreak, the impacted club or clubs could be forced to forfeit, accruing a defeat, and not being paid for the lost game. A team with an outbreak could also be responsible for



Beat writer wonders if offseason additions could tempt 49ers to trade Raheem Mostert

The San Francisco 49ers should feel good about their running back depth. On their latest 49ers Talk podcast, Matt Maiocco and Laura Britt of NBC Sports Bay Area took a look at the team's offseason veteran additions and departures. When they landed at the running back group, Maiocco wondered if there is too much depth. Obviously, there is the argument that there is no such thing as too much depth. For example, the 49ers have to feel better about their quarterback position with high-potential rookie Trey Lance likely to open the season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. That's a better backup situation than the team had in recent years. At running back, San Francisco didn't just add veteran Wayne Gallman, who may be a severely underrated signing.

Kyle Shanahan admitted that he was frustrated by missing out on potentially pursuing Matthew Stafford in March. Instead, the Detroit Lions shipped the veteran quarterback to a division rival. The speed at which the trade went down shocked Shanahan, who thought he would have more time to get his San Francisco 49ers in the talks. "I was trying to get involved in it," Shanahan shared during a recent podcast interview with Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay and NFL Network's Peter Schrager. "Someone who had knowledge of the situation, I remember us talking to (agent Tom) Condon, just everyone, to find out when it was happening. I remember Saturday, I was so stressed



Trent Williams on board with 49ers adding QB Trey Lance, doesn't think there will be a QB controversy

By Kirk Larrabee

49ers offensive tackle Trent Williams has been around the NFL for over a decade, which means he fully understands just how harsh of a business the league can be. For that reason, Williams has no problem with the 49ers' decision to add rookie quarterback Trey Lance even though they already have a proven veteran in Jimmy Garoppolo, and he doesn't seem to think there will be any controversy as a result. Garoppolo led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2019 and carries a 22-8 overall record since joining the team in 2017. But he's also missed the bulk of two seasons due to injuries, has a contract with a hefty amount of non-guaranteed money over the next two seasons, and doesn't have the
