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.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic this week and was once again asked about the team's quarterback situation.

Kawakami, as part of the interview on his podcast, The TK Show, asked Lynch if the 49ers might consider using their top pick on one of the highly-touted incoming rookie signal-callers. "We certainly could," Lynch responded while
