Trent Williams ‘good to go’ for 49ers-Cardinals, says Kyle Shanahan

Oct 7, 2021 at 3:54 PM--


San Francisco 49ers left tackle Trent Williams returned to the practice field this afternoon. He's been dealing with a shoulder injury sustained during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Williams' participation is undoubtedly good news no matter which quarterback — Jimmy Garoppolo or Trey Lance — starts this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals.

After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR and provided an update on his eight-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman.

"Trent was good," Shanahan said on the Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "He was able to go out there and practice today, so he'll be good to go on Sunday."

While Shanahan was on the radio, Williams was speaking with reporters and explained how the injury occurred.

"I was trying to go back in and help my guard, and I ended up tripping over his dude's feet," Williams said. "And I just came down on my elbow, but obviously it affected my shoulder."

Judging by Williams' reaction, most felt that it was a more severe injury. The offensive lineman appeared emotional as he was being carted to the locker room.

"Honestly, I didn't think I had to come out," Williams explained. "I got up, and then I think maybe it took me a minute, I don't know, but we were kind of up against the play clock as well, so it was kind of a collective discussion. ... It was fourth down, but I'm not trying to come out on the most important possession of the game.

"When I went to the tent, they were just kind of concerned about the place of all the pain, so they just wanted to go get an X-ray really quick before they sent me back out there. That's why I looked pissed because I felt like that was the worst time to be leaving the game."

Williams was asked if he expected to be playing on Sunday. He laughed and responded, "Yeah, I think so." However, he didn't make a prediction on which quarterback he would be protecting.

Shanahan added that he hopes to get rookie running back Elijah Mitchell back this weekend. While nothing is official on that front, things are trending in that direction.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw is on track to be activated from injured reserve after having his practice window opened last week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan hopes Greenlaw and defensive end Dee Ford can be activated in time for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. That's the plan, for now. Ford did not practice during Wednesday's session but is expected to do so on Thursday. He's been on injured reserve since November 6 due to a back injury. Greenlaw underwent core muscle surgery and has been on injured reserve since September 18. "Greenlaw did a good job out there today," Shanahan said during KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show.

Conquering Cancer: 49ers tackle Trent Williams shares his emotional journey with Adam Schefter

"I took a lot of stuff for granted, just in life in general," San Francisco 49ers Tackle Trent Williams told ESPN's Adam Schefter. "Just being an NFL athlete, and the last 15 years of life have kind of been scheduled, documented, basically pampered, so to speak. Just keeping it honest, just being an athlete, especially while you're in it, there's not a ton of struggles that you encounter. "Me being successful in the sport and doing what I was at the time, I just felt like, for lack of a better word, I just felt untouchable." That changed when Williams was diagnosed with life-threatening cancer on his head. A long battle ensued, and the eight-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman overcame the attack on his body. For a while, though, hope was



Watch out NFL: Kyle Shanahan says 49ers' Nick Bosa is 'getting better each week'

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa racked up nine sacks during his NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign in 2019. He has already surpassed that mark through 10 games this season. Bosa's 10 sacks are tied for the fifth-most in the NFL. Imagine the number he could have amassed if he wasn't being held so often by blockers doing whatever they can to prevent the dominating defender from getting to their quarterbacks. On Sunday, you saw it with Jacksonville's Jawaan Taylor holding onto Bosa, who still managed to reach rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence. "The reason why [he's being held so often] is he's so good and so fast at taking that inside move,"
