49ers-Colts: Trent Williams among 7 inactives for Niners

Oct 24, 2021 at 3:51 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 7 matchup at home against the Indianapolis Colts. These players will not suit up for Sunday's game.


On Friday, Hurst (calf), Kinlaw (knee), and Lance (knee) were ruled out for tonight's game. Williams (ankle, elbow) was listed as "doubtful" and will not play.

Williams has been dealing with an ankle sprain sustained during the 49ers' Week 5 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He did not practice Wednesday through Friday after tweaking the injury during Monday's bonus practice.

"We didn't think it was as bad as it obviously is," head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Friday. "As tough as he is, being able to finish that game [in Arizona] and everything, but he re-zinged it a little bit at practice on Monday and hasn't been able to go since.

"But Trent out of anybody on this team, we'll take up all the way to game time."

Shanahan added that rookie Jaylon Moore would start at left tackle if Williams can't play. It's also worth noting that rookie offensive lineman Aaron Banks is active for the first time this season.

Lance sustained a knee sprain during Week 5, an injury that was expected to require one to two weeks of recovery. The team sounds confident that the rookie quarterback will be healthy enough for next weekend's game.

Hurst suffered a calf injury during Thursday's practice. He will require four to eight weeks of recovery time. Kinlaw is dealing with the same knee injury that has plagued him all season, and Shanahan said on Friday that injured reserve is a possibility for the second-year defensive lineman.

On Saturday, the 49ers activated running back JaMycal Hasty from the injured reserve list. With Lance ruled out, the team activated quarterback Nate Sudfeld from the practice squad to serve as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. Tight end Tanner Hudson was also activated while George Kittle remains on injured reserve. On Monday, Sudfeld and Hudson will revert back to the practice squad.

San Francisco promoted linebacker Tyrell Adams from the practice squad to the active roster and released linebacker Mychal Kendricks, who spent less than a week with the team after re-signing on October 18.

49ers' George Kittle: 'Trent Williams is the best football player in the NFL'

Trent Williams' 97.8 overall Pro Football Focus grade from the 2021 regular season led the NFL. In fact, it was the highest-ever grade awarded by the analytics site. Now, some will criticize the grade, arguing that you can't consider an offensive tackle the best player in the league. Don't tell that to All-Pro tight end George Kittle, Williams' San Francisco 49ers teammate. "Trent Williams is the best football player in the NFL," Kittle declared Friday on The Pat McAfee Show (h/t NBC Sports Bay Area). "I don't care. You could talk to me about any

Cynthia Frelund names new 49ers CB Charvarius Ward among NFL's most underappreciated players

Analyst Cynthia Frelund took on the task of identifying the most underappreciated player for each NFL team. For the San Francisco 49ers, that player is an offseason addition—cornerback Charvarius Ward. Frelund used analytics to measure each player's production and contribution to a team's overall win total during the 2021 season. Ward's contributions last season were for the Kansas City Chiefs. Frelund admits that she typically tries to prioritize players who do not switch teams in the offseason. However, that proved especially challenging this year due to so much free-agent movement, so Ward's value in this exercise benefits the 49ers. Other factors like past salary, where the player was drafted, and a lack of NFL honors helped determine who is
