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.

Fantasy Football Alert: Kyle Juszczyk says 49ers have 'big plans' for Raheem Mostert

Injuries limited San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert to eight games last season. Of course, injuries devastated the entire roster, resulting in a disappointing six-win campaign. Some better luck on the injury front could result in a quick turnaround for Mostert and his Niners. That's what recently re-signed fullback Kyle Juszczyk expects. In fact, the 49ers' offensive weapon expects big things in 2021 for his running back teammate. Much of that has to do with play-caller Kyle Shanahan and how the head coach takes advantage of each player's strengths. Juszczyk used wide receiver Deebo Samuel as an example. In each game, Shanahan installs two or three plays that can take advantage of the young wideout's physicality. "He knows that he just needs to get



Former 49ers receiver doesn't see the value in drafting Mac Jones at No. 3

Count former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith among those who would question Mac Jones being the draft selection at No. 3 overall. It is important to note that Smith likes the Alabama quarterback and describes him as a "solid player," but is he a prospect worth trading future first-round picks and a third-rounder? Smith doesn't see it. "I promised to never be the former player that is a hater but I swear I have a hard time understanding the 49ers would trade all of that for Mac Jones," wrote Smith in a tweet. "I like Mac and I think he will be a solid player but as a prospect I don't see the value in 'mortgaging the future' for



Richard Sherman explains why drafting Justin Fields makes sense for the 49ers

Mac Jones versus Justin Fields or Trey Lance. That is the big debate when it comes to the San Francisco 49ers and the 2021 NFL Draft. While the latter two names are more likely to excite the fanbase, there is a lot of speculation that the former might be the pick at No. 3 overall. One former 49ers defender, cornerback Richard Sherman, doesn't assume it will be Jones, though. He actually sees Fields as the perfect fit for San Francisco, assuming Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson are taken with the first two selections. Cornerback Tre'Davious White, the most recent guest on the Cris Collinsworth Podcast, which Sherman co-hosts, also believes the 49ers will select Fields. It isn't easy to fathom that San Francisco surrendered multiple first-round picks and a



Richard Sherman still betting on Justin Fields to 49ers in draft

On Wednesday, Justin Fields worked out in front of San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, general manager John Lynch, and quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello. Was it enough to convince the trio that he — not Mac Jones nor Trey Lance — should be the No. 3 overall pick in the upcoming draft? We may not know the answer to that until April 29. Former cornerback Richard Sherman already explained why drafting Fields made sense for his former squad. "He's been at a program that competes at a high level year in and year out," Sherman said last week on The Cris Collinsworth Podcast, which he co-hosts, "always in a championship, always in
