49ers-Seahawks Injury Report: 3 linebackers don’t practice; Who needs to step up?

Dec 1, 2021 at 3:20 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 13 contest against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington.

Earlier this week, head coach Kyle Shanahan ruled out wide receiver Deebo Samuel and linebacker Fred Warner for Sunday. Samuel is expected to miss one to two weeks. Warner could return for Week 14's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Running back Trey Sermon and linebacker Marcell Harris did not practice. Sermon is a candidate for injured reserve while Harris is in the concussion protocol. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw also did practice. Ian Rapoport reports that he is a "long-shot" to play against Seattle.

Who will step up with Warner and Greenlaw expected to miss Sunday's game?

"I think it will be Azeez [Al-Shaair]," Shanahan said. "Fred's a leader and stuff, but on game day, it's not like the big pump-up speeches or anything. It's how he does his job on the field. And Fred's the leader out there because he's the quarterback of the defense. He gets the calls. He gets everyone lined up, being the MIKE linebacker. And this week, that will be Azeez, who's, I think, more than ready for it."

Shanahan added, "Azeez in college or even when he got here, I thought Azeez was always a kind of a splash player. Anybody who runs without hesitation and is very physical and is running through people and doesn't hesitate, those guys make plays."

While running back JaMycal Hasty and defensive lineman Maurice Hurst were limited, Shanahan said there is a chance that both will play this weekend.

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

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Divisional playoff contest against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Defensive end Nick Bosa remains in the concussion protocol, and being cleared will be a challenge due to the short week of preparation. The good news is that he returned to practice on Wednesday. Although, he was listed as a "limited" participant. Bosa was on the field with his teammates for the pre-practice walkthrough but headed to the locker room before practice started. Excellent sign as

Earlier this season, Jimmy Garoppolo didn't want to close the door on a possible return to the San Francisco 49ers in 2022. Most believe the team will unload the veteran quarterback and his hefty salary and transition to the No. 3 overall pick in last year's draft, Trey Lance. "Honestly, with the possibilities, I try not to close any doors too early," Garoppolo said in November. "It's one of those situations, you've just got to let it play out, I think. We've got a lot going on with the season and everything right now. If you start thinking about those other things, you just get distracted, I think.
