49ers-Cardinals Injury Report: Jimmy Garoppolo, George Kittle don’t practice; Trent Williams returns

Oct 7, 2021 at 2:46 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Things are starting to trend towards rookie quarterback Trey Lance making his first NFL start. Jimmy Garoppolo missed his second consecutive practice after suffering a calf injury during Week 4. That makes it unlikely the veteran starter will be healthy enough to lead the offense against the Cardinals.

Tight end George Kittle also missed his second consecutive practice. He is dealing with the same calf injury that sidelined him for most of last week. However, he still played this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks.

If Lance does start, he will probably have left tackle Trent Williams helping keep defenders at bay. The veteran offensive lineman returned to practice after missing Wednesday's session.

Another veteran who may be on track to playing is cornerback Josh Norman. He missed Week 4 due to a lung contusion. Norman shed his blue no-contact jersey during today's practice.

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

The San Francisco 49ers haven't asked Jimmy Garoppolo to carry the team over the last handful of games, and the veteran quarterback has been playing his best football of the season. On Sunday, he had another solid outing as the 49ers dominated the Jacksonville Jaguars, winning 30-10. Garoppolo finished 16-of-22 passing for 176 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. His 126.3 passer rating was his second-highest of the season, with his highest mark coming in the team's last game, a 31-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. "I thought he played well," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game. "He was very efficient. He made the right plays. [He] protected the ball, most importantly. He did what he had to do for us to win." Garoppolo has thrown

49ers OT Trent Williams reflects on his receiver debut, which was years in the making

Trent Williams as a receiver? That's about the last thing anyone expected to see from the San Francisco 49ers against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, but that's exactly what happened at one point during the third quarter. The 49ers were up 20-3 en route to a 30-10 win over the Jaguars when Williams' number was called on a 3rd-and-Goal from the 1-yard line. Williams reported as an eligible receiver, after which quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo made it a point to throw the ball his way. The end result was an incomplete pass, but Williams finally got the chance he had been hoping head coach Kyle Shanahan would give him ever since he was a rookie with Washington in 2010. "For at least 12 years. We finally got it in though," Williams said Sunday. Shanahan
