49ers-Colts: Trent Williams, Trey Lance, Javon Kinlaw miss third consecutive practice

Oct 22, 2021 at 12:15 PM--

After missing Wednesday's and Thursday's sessions, San Francisco 49ers tackle Trent Williams wasn't on the practice field today. The Pro Bowl offensive lineman is dealing with an elbow injury and an ankle sprain.

"He did that in the Arizona game," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Thursday of the ankle injury, "and he was working on it the week away [during the bye], and he dinged it a little bit on Monday. He got to come out to practice on Monday and do stuff, but he dinged it, and that's why he wasn't able to go [on Wednesday], wasn't able to go [on Thursday]."

Shanahan was hoping to see Williams on the practice field today. If the left tackle cannot play on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, rookie Jaylon Moore could get his first NFL start. This morning, general manager John Lynch said Tom Compton was an option too.

"I think it truly is a questionable thing," Lynch said of Williams' potential status. "I think it speaks to Trent's toughness that he never missed a snap against Arizona. He played throughout that game and came out with both a tweak to his elbow and to his ankle. And it persisted throughout the bye week. The bye week helped him, but he's not there yet.

"Trent is a tremendously tough individual, aside from being as skilled as he is. And so, he wants, in the worst way, to play on Sunday, and we still have some time. He's not there yet, though. ... He's still working through it. So I think it truly is a questionable situation."

Quarterback Trey Lance also missed his third consecutive practice (fourth, if you count Monday's bonus practice), which means Nate Sudfeld will likely serve as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup against the Colts.

Others who were not seen for the portion of practice open to reporters are defensive linemen Maurice Hurst and Javon Kinlaw. Hurst was seen using crutches today to leave the 49ers facility and had his foot in an orthopedic boot, indicating that he will be out for a while.

The 49ers will release their official Week 7 game statuses shortly. That's when we will learn who has been ruled "out," "doubtful," or "questionable" for Sunday night.

The San Francisco 49ers kicked off organized team activities (OTAs) this week. Monday's session was closed to the media. However, reporters had an opportunity to observe Tuesday's session and get their first offseason glance at quarterback Trey Lance on the practice field. While there are several 49ers-related offseason storylines, the most prominent ones have been the quarterback situation and the drama surrounding wide receiver Deebo Samuel. Samuel is not in attendance after requesting to be traded, so there isn't anything new to report on that front. As for the quarterback storyline, most expect Lance to be the 49ers' starter in 2022, replacing veteran Jimmy Garoppolo, who has remained on the roster much longer than anticipated. Of course, that is primarily

San Francisco 49ers rookie wideout Danny Gray spoke with the media for the first time since his draft interview, as he prepared for the 49ers' rookie minicamp, which is slated to begin on Friday. Gray, who was selected with the last pick in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 105th overall, is a player with electrifying straight-line speed, which was confirmed with his 4.33 40-yard dash at the combine. However, Gray's talents aren't limited to just his speed; he works well with the ball in his hands and can be physical after the catch, despite his relatively slight 186-pound frame. When addressing his skillset, Gray acknowledged the biggest development over his

In February, Vic Fangio met with the San Francisco 49ers, and some felt he might join the team as a consultant for the 2022 season. However, it was later reported that the longtime coach would be taking a year off. Fangio served as the 49ers' defensive coordinator from 2011-14 before serving in the same role with the Chicago Bears (2015-18) and then the Denver Broncos head coach (2019-21). San Francisco looked to bring Fangio back when Kyle Shanahan became the head coach in 2017, but Fangio couldn't get out of his contract with the Bears. Fangio is back in Santa
