49ers-Cowboys Injury Report: Jimmy Garoppolo limited; Trent Williams, Elijah Mitchell don’t practice

Jan 12, 2022 at 3:12 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their playoff contest against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Nothing changed from what head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters before practice. The 49ers continue to be cautious with their quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo. He was limited.


San Francisco had a trio of linebackers and a pair of safeties who were also limited, as was the team's punter.

Trent Williams did not practice. Although, the coach feels his veteran left tackle is improving after being inactive on Sunday due to an elbow injury. Running back Elijah Mitchell was also sidelined after racking up a team-leading 85 rushing yards against the Los Angeles Rams in the regular-season finale.

"Yeah, Elijah's in the same boat he was in last week, on this Wednesday," Shanahan said. "And Trent is better today than he was on Sunday."

Williams told ESPN's Ed Werder that he intends to play on Sunday, even if that means doing so with a brace over his elbow.

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

The San Francisco 49ers are playing the New Orleans Saints at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Elijah Mitchell to miss 6-8 weeks with MCL sprain, other 49ers injury updates from Kyle Shanahan

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.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 12 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The 49ers held a light practice on Wednesday, a precaution given the quick turnaround from Monday night's game in Mexico City against the Arizona Cardinals. The team didn't arrive back in the Bay Area until 6:15 a.m. on Tuesday and pushed the start time for Wednesday's practice back to 4:03 p.m. "We're starting a lot later, and we'll just walk-through today," head coach Kyle Shanahan said before practice. "And we've got to mix in Thanksgiving a little bit on Thursday, so we'll dial things back a little bit for that also." Wednesday's practice took place inside Levi's Stadium, something that doesn't



With Elijah Mitchell out, 49ers RB Jordan Mason will get his chance to shine

By Rohan Chakravarthi

Since the beginning of the offseason, San Francisco 49ers running back Jordan Mason has made the most of his opportunities, earning praise for his hard-nosed, physical running style that embodied an NFL player. However, due to a variety of circumstances, Mason has yet to see significant NFL action. After Elijah Mitchell suffered a sprained MCL in Week 1, Mason could've seen opportunities behind Jeff Wilson in San Francisco's running back rotation, given his performance in the offseason and style of play. But, the 49ers opted for a different direction, utilizing Wilson as a bell-cow back, significantly decreasing the team's efficiency on the ground, before involving veteran Tevin Coleman, who had a short stint on the active
