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.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan says surgeries for Mike McGlinchey, Javon Kinlaw 'went real well'

The season ended prematurely for offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw. McGlinchey suffered a torn quad in the San Francisco 49ers' November 7 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Kinlaw has been dealing with a knee injury that was initially sustained at the end of last season. He recently underwent ACL reconstruction. "Evaluation of the knee in surgery confirmed suspicions that the ACL had chronic changes that would be best treated with ACL reconstruction," read a joint statement from the 49ers medical staff, Dr. Tim McAdams, and Dr. Neal ElAttrache. "This procedure gives him the best opportunity to make a full recovery and return to

49ers QB Trey Lance finding ways to progress despite not getting any playing time

Rookie quarterback Trey Lance hasn't played a significant in-game role on offense for the San Francisco 49ers in nearly two months, but that doesn't necessarily mean he hasn't been picking up valuable experience since then. Lance saw some late snaps in the 49ers' 30-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in November, but other than that he hasn't seen any playing time since starting in place of the injured Jimmy Garoppolo against the Cardinals on October 10. Lance suffered a knee injury in that game that put him on the sidelines for a brief time, while Garoppolo came back as the starter after an October 17 bye and has held a firm grip on that role ever since. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan made it a point to give Lance some situational looks at times earlier in the

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

By David Bonilla
Nov 30

"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
