49ers-Cardinals Injury Report: Richard Sherman, Jimmie Ward ruled out

Dec 24, 2020 at 1:35 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.

Running back Raheem Mostert (ankle), quarterback Nick Mullens (right elbow), and wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) did not practice this week and won't play again this season. All three are headed to injured reserve. Mostert and Mullens both suffered their injuries during Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Samuel sustained his injury on October 25.

Cornerback Jason Verrett, who missed Sunday's game due to an illness, has been a full participant in practice all week. Richard Sherman (calf) did not practice and has been ruled out.

Safety Jimmie Ward remains in the concussion protocol and has been ruled out.

According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, the 49ers will get tight end George Kittle back. The plan is to activate him off of injured reserve before Saturday.

Below are the official injury reports for the 49ers and Cardinals, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff. Also included are Thursday's practice participation reports.

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

By David Bonilla

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



Graziano: Don't rule out the 49ers drafting Trey Lance at No. 3

It's a foregone conclusion that Zach Wilson is going No. 2 overall to the New York Jets. With Trevor Lawrence a lock to head to the Jacksonville Jaguars at No. 1, that leaves the San Francisco 49ers with their choice of Justin Fields, Mac Jones, and Trey Lance. Many are predicting that the trade up to No. 3 was made for Jones. Others feel that is a massive reach that didn't necessarily require a move into the top 3. ESPN's Dan Graziano warns fans not to overlook Lance as the quarterback of the future in San Francisco. "All you hear is Mac Jones, Mac Jones to (the) 49ers," Graziano said on ESPN's Get Up! "I mean, that's all over the league, and it could happen. He could be their guy. But conversations that I've had in the last couple of days have led me



Another report surfaces that 49ers seek a 1st-round pick for Jimmy Garoppolo

A second report stating that the San Francisco 49ers seek a first-round pick to consider trading Jimmy Garoppolo has surfaced. That means the team has no real desire to part ways with the quarterback despite making a move last week to draft his successor. San Francisco seeks to keep Garoppolo around for this season, allowing the team to ease a rookie into the playbook and offense. On Wednesday, Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reported that it would take a first-round pick for the 49ers to consider altering their plan for the upcoming season. "I was told that, yes, it'd take a first-round pick for the Niners to listen at this point," Breer wrote, "which
