49ers-Texans: Kyle Shanahan provides injury updates on two players

Jan 2, 2022 at 9:15 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers seemingly emerged from Sunday's 23-7 victory over the Houston Texans relatively unscathed. In fact, head coach Kyle Shanahan had only two injury updates during his post-game press conference.

"[Linebacker] Marcell Harris got evaluated for a stinger," Shanahan revealed. "He did return, though. [Tackle] Trent Williams had an elbow sprain. He returned also."

That was it.

Cornerback Josh Norman was seen on the sideline late in the game. That, however, was just a game decision. After Norman's pass interference, the 49ers opted to replace him with Dontae Johnson late in the game.

Of course, as fans are well aware, an almost clean bill of health for the team after a game doesn't mean it is out of the woods just yet. Players will report back to the facility on Monday morning, and other issues could be reported.

A good example of that occurring in the past is quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo not being mentioned in Shanahan's post-game injury updates following the Week 16 loss to the Tennessee Titans. It wasn't until four days later that Shanahan revealed Garoppolo had suffered the thumb injury that kept him out of Sunday's game against the Texans.

There was also Elijah Mitchell's situation following Week 13. The rookie running back's concussion was reported, but his knee injury wasn't revealed until three days later.

Shanahan will speak with reporters on Monday at 3:30 p.m. PT.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call with reporters on Monday, one day after his team's thrilling playoff-clinching 27-24 overtime road win over the Los Angeles Rams. He provided several injury updates. Trent Williams, tackle Williams did not play on Sunday. He was inactive due to an elbow injury. Shanahan says Williams will be doing everything he can to play against the Cowboys. However, the coach didn't sound optimistic that his starting left tackle would practice on Wednesday. "He wasn't going to be in good enough shape to protect himself [on Sunday] or the quarterback in the game," Shanahan said. "That was tough on him, but I think he was as excited as anyone after we won because I know he's going to

49ers-Cowboys: Kyle Shanahan provides updates on K'Waun Williams, Trenton Cannon

K'Waun Williams, one of the best slot corners in the league, came off the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday, the day before the San Francisco 49ers' regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. He did not play in that game, though. A report from NBC Sports Bay Area indicated the cornerback wasn't feeling well enough to do so. Williams has not been listed on any practice participation reports this week, leading to the assumption that he has been a full participant and should play in Sunday's playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't revealing anything at this point. "K'Waun's one of the top nickels in the

49ers status and injury updates: Jimmy Garoppolo, Trent Williams, Dre Greenlaw, Azeez Al-Shaair, Emmanuel Moseley, COVID players

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan provided status updates for a number of players after practice on Friday, including quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo—but he still stopped short of naming him the starter for this weekend's game against the Los Angeles Rams (Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET/1:25 p.m. PT, FOX). Shanahan stuck to his stance of not announcing a starter between Garoppolo and rookie Trey Lance in order to give Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris more to think about, but he was clearly encouraged with what he saw from Garoppolo at practice throughout the week after missing last Sunday's start against the Houston Texans with a thumb injury. "He had a good week—a good week of practice when he was in there. I feel good with where he's at right now," Shanahan
