49ers-Cowboys: Kyle Shanahan provides injury updates on Trent Williams, Jimmy Garoppolo, Jaquiski Tartt, others

Jan 10, 2022 at 4:06 PM--

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 do everything he can, and I think he just needs seven more days."

K'Waun Williams, cornerback
Williams, another player who did not play on Sunday, was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list before the game but did not feel well enough to play.

"I didn't get to talk to him today," Shanahan said, "but I'd be surprised if he wasn't good to go on Wednesday."

Jimmy Garoppolo, quarterback
Garoppolo "made it out of the game in good shape." He played through a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. The 49ers could limit Garoppolo in practice this week.

Elijah Mitchell, running back
Like Garoppolo, Mitchell made it out of the game OK. He had been dealing with a knee injury. The 49ers will continue to be cautious with him, limiting him during practices this week.

Mitch Wishnowsky, punter
Wishnowsky was victim to an uncalled helmet-to-helmet hit during a punt return. He was evaluated for a concussion and did not return to the game. Wishnowsky is in the concussion protocol.

Jaquiski Tartt, safety
Tartt exited the game in the second half due to a groin injury.

"Positive news from the MRI," Shanahan said, "so we'll see where he is on Wednesday."

Talanoa Hufanga, safety
Hufanga was ruled "out" with a knee injury.

"Hufanga irritated the same knee [as his previous injury]," Shanahan said. "We'll see where he is on Wednesday. he'll still have a chance."

Azeez Al-Shaair and Marcell Harris, linebackers
Both Al-Shaair and Harris were inactive against the Rams. Shanahan hopes to get both back this week.

The San Francisco 49ers' streak of second-half shutouts continues. Although, it looked like that was in jeopardy a couple of times in the second half. Another streak ended after Sunday's 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. Head coach Kyle Shanahan couldn't say, "No injuries to report," something he had done in the previous three games. The 49ers lost two key players in the game. Running back Elijah Mitchell and guard Spencer Burford exited with injuries. Mitchell was ruled out with a knee injury, while Burford was sidelined due to an ankle injury. After the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Mitchell may have suffered another MCL sprain of his knee, but it's not believed to be as severe as the one he sustained in Week 1. However, he will likely miss some time.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have stated that Trey Lance's ankle injury in September was a season-ender since the injury occurred. Lynch reaffirmed that this morning on KNBR while adding that the team has been impressed with the quarterback's recovery. Unfortunately, it's just a bit much to expect Lance to return to the field this season. "He'll be fine long-term, but that's a big ask to get back this year," Lynch said. That didn't stop a reporter from asking Shanahan about the possibility ahead of today's practice. Could Lance return to serve as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup if the 49ers embarked on a deep playoff

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was limited all week during practices as the team prepares for its Week 12 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. When head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Wednesday, rattling off the names of those who would not practice or be limited, Samuel's name was absent. It wasn't until the official practice participation report was released that the wideout's injury was revealed to reporters. Samuel emerged from Monday night's win over the Arizona Cardinals with a hamstring injury. Although, it wasn't immediately known. And the injury was different than the Week 7 hamstring injury that occurred against the Kansas City Chiefs and kept him out the next week against the Los Angeles Rams. "No, it was something

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call with reporters on Monday, a day after the team's 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. He provided several injury updates from the game. Running back Elijah Mitchell suffered an MCL sprain in his left knee. The team initially thought it wasn't as severe as the MCL sprain he suffered in his right knee during Week 1, forcing him to miss seven games. The 49ers believed he might miss two or three weeks. That isn't the case, though. "It wasn't the news we were looking for," Shanahan said. "He'll be out longer than that. Most likely six to eight weeks." Mitchell will likely land back on the injured reserve list. Shanahan said the team hopes he can return sometime during the playoffs.
