49ers-Rams: Jimmy Garoppolo active; Trent Williams, K’Waun Williams among 6 inactives for Niners

Jan 9, 2022 at 11:57 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 18 matchup on the road against the Los Angeles Rams. These players will not suit up for Sunday's game.

Inactives:


Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is active despite still dealing with a right thumb injury. He is expected to start against the Rams with rookie Trey Lance, last weekend's starter, slated to serve as his backup. On Friday, the 49ers listed Garoppolo as "questionable."

Tackle Trent Williams, who did not practice this past week and was listed as "questionable" too, is inactive. Rookie Jaylon Moore, who is celebrating his 24th birthday, will likely start in place of Williams.

Update: Based on pre-game warmups, it looks like Colton McKivitz will start in place of Williams.

Starting slot cornerback K'Waun Williams is also inactive, which could be concerning considering Deommodore Lenoir is the lone 49ers player remaining on the reserve/COVID-19 list.


On Saturday, the 49ers activated cornerback Emmanuel Moseley off of injured reserve. He is active for the game. Safety Jimmie Ward and cornerbacks Dontae Johnson and K'Waun Williams were activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list while linebacker Mark Nzeocha and recently-added cornerback Darqueze Dennard were activated from the practice squad.

Linebacker Curtis Robinson was also activated from the practice squad as a COVID-19 replacement.

Why NFL.com names 49ers-Dolphins among its top 10 games of 2022

The San Francisco 49ers face the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams twice. They also face the Raiders for the first time since the latter left the Bay Area for Las Vegas. The two once-local rivals will play at Allegiant Stadium. The 49ers also host briefly-retired Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Every time the Niners face Brady, fans are treated (said sarcastically) to stories about how the future Hall of Fame quarterback loved the Bay Area team growing up and dreamed of playing for the 49ers. He has won seven Super Bowls since. Or, more recently, how the Niners passed on signing Brady in 2020. The quarterback went on to win that seventh Super Bowl that season. None of those matchups are



49ers' 2022 schedule among the toughest in strength-of-schedule rankings

The NFL will announce the entire 2022 slate of matchups on Thursday night. That's when we'll learn the dates and times for all 272 regular-season games. However, we've known the opponents for a while now. If the San Francisco 49ers are to return to the playoffs for the third time in four years, it won't be an easy road. San Francisco's upcoming opponents went 154-135 in 2021. The team's schedule will include seven matchups against opponents coming off a playoff appearance (Rams twice, Cardinals twice, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Raiders). Those opponents had a total winning percentage of .533 in 2021, which is good enough to tie with the Kansas City Chiefs as the fifth-toughest schedule



The 49ers are content with Jimmy Garoppolo on their roster

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch told KNBR this past Monday that the organization appeared close to trading starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo earlier in the offseason, but those talks came to a screeching halt when the decision was made for the 30-year old signal-caller to have surgery on his injured shoulder. Lynch later mentioned that the team continued to have dialogue surrounding Garoppolo during the NFL Draft, but it appeared teams were hoping to secure his services at a discounted price. Lynch also mentioned that teams typically don't rush out to trade for a player following surgery until they know they've made a full recovery. To me, it almost felt like



Richard Sherman: I think Jimmy Garoppolo will be with the 49ers during training camp

We know Jimmy Garoppolo isn't going anywhere until he fully recovers from his offseason shoulder surgery. Most have accepted that. The San Francisco 49ers aren't releasing him. By not trading him by the end of the draft, the 49ers showed they are willing to wait out the situation and see if a trade partner emerges after late June or early July, when the team expects the quarterback to start throwing again. Nick Wagoner of ESPN recently stated that once Garoppolo recovers, the 49ers will again get on the phones and try to generate interest in the 30-year-old quarterback. Of course, that's not
