49ers-Falcons Injury Report: No Azeez Al-Shaair or Dre Greenlaw at practice; Fred Warner calls injury ‘nothing serious’

Dec 15, 2021 at 2:50 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 15 contest against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

The 49ers were missing two linebackers during Wednesday's practice. Neither Azeez Al-Shaair nor Dre Greenlaw took part in the week's first practice. Fred Warner was limited.

"I'm feeling great," Warner told reporters on Wednesday. "I think it was a positive that I was able to finish the game, and obviously it kind of swelled up after, but nothing serious."

Al-Shaair worked on the side with both elbows in a brace, per Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group.

The team's leading rusher, Elijah Mitchell, also did not practice. However, he was seen working with a trainer on the side. The running back missed this past Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals after suffering a concussion a week earlier.

Cornerback Dontae Johnson, who was inactive on Sunday following the passing of his mother, was not back with the 49ers on Wednesday.

"Hopefully, we'll have him back later in the week," head coach Kyle Shanahan said.

George Kittle did not practice, but his coach doesn't sound too concerned about his All-Pro tight end.

"I'm just told it's soreness," Shanahan said. "Soreness isn't as much of an injury. It's just the game is a violent game. It's tough to get over it, over some of the soreness, especially with us having a Thursday-night game coming up (next week). Just giving him a little bit more rest."

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

Fred Warner believes Deebo Samuel 'loves the team' but Pelissero says 49ers, WR remain in 'standoff'

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner spoke with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero following the NFL's schedule release yesterday. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defender was asked about his disgruntled teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who requested a trade this offseason. Samuel is eligible for a contract extension, but there have been no updates on that front. And the 49ers didn't grant his wish for a trade either. Warner told Pelissero that 49ers teammates, like quarterback Trey Lance and tight end George Kittle, have been in contact with Samuel since the trade request became public last month. Pelissero pressed Warner to reveal his level of confidence that Samuel is playing for the 49ers come Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. "I

Beat writer calls idea of 49ers keeping Jimmy Garoppolo 'absurd'

The San Francisco 49ers insist that holding onto Jimmy Garoppolo this season is possible. The team has unsuccessfully tried to trade the veteran quarterback without success. Of course, Garoppolo undergoing shoulder surgery on March 8 didn't help matters. One 49ers beat writer, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, doesn't believe the team can realistically hold onto Garoppolo and his hefty $24.2 million base salary. After all, last year's No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, is expected to be the starting quarterback in 2022. Devoting a hefty chunk of this year's salary cap to a backup doesn't seem financially responsible. This is assuming that Lance remains on track to be the 49ers' starter. "If the 49ers do not view Garoppolo as the starter,

The San Francisco 49ers kicked off a three-day rookie minicamp this afternoon. It's the first time players from the team's latest draft class have been able to suit up and get on the practice field, including defensive lineman Drake Jackson, running back Ty Davis-Price, and wide receiver Danny Gray. David Lombardi of The Athletic shared some videos of the rookie draft class going through their first practice in red and gold.

49ers rookie Danny Gray did this after dropping a deep pass during practice

Like many NFL players, rookie wide receiver Danny Gray strives for perfection. Unfortunately, no one can be perfect. For a quarterback, it's easy to dwell on that off-target throw. Maybe it's that football that slipped out of your grip for a running back. For a cornerback, that near-interception that bounced off your eager hands. For a wide receiver, it's that big-play throw that you couldn't haul in. That's what happened to Gray on Friday afternoon during the San Francisco 49ers' first practice of a three-day rookie minicamp. While others might try to push the slip-up out of their minds and focus on the next rep. Not Gray. According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, the rookie wideout fell to the ground and paid penance with 10
