Trent Williams looks ‘good to go’ for 49ers-Cowboys, says insider

Jan 14, 2022 at 1:09 PM--


Trent Williams returned to practice on Thursday after missing last week's and Wednesday's sessions. The newly named All-Pro offensive lineman was back on the practice field on Friday, with the team scheduled to board a plane for the Dallas area this afternoon.

Williams is dealing with an elbow injury that forced him to miss the San Francisco 49ers' regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams.

"He looks to be good to go for Sunday's game," wrote Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.


"The elbow is doing good," Williams told reporters on Thursday. "It's made a lot of improvement over the past week or so. Yeah, I practiced today. It felt pretty good. I chose to go with the tape (versus a brace). I'm not a huge fan of the brace. I went with the tape today, but everything feels pretty good."

Williams added that the injury occurred on the sixth play of the 49ers' Week 17 contest against the Houston Texans.

"I just kinda labored through it. I got it done," Williams shared. "Eventually, when we had the game in hand, they let me come out. ... I just gritted through it, and I paid the price later."

After the season, Williams will not require surgery for the injury to heal completely.

Absent from Friday's practice was linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair. General manager John Lynch sounded optimistic that the defender would play in Sunday's playoff game.


"The nice thing now is it looks as though Azeez is going to be ready to roll," Lynch said Thursday during his weekly KNBR interview.

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

Deebo Samuel is once again following his team, the San Francisco 49ers, on Instagram. That's significant considering the drama that ensued when the dynamic wide receiver stopped following the team, removed his profile picture, and all other 49ers-related content from his profile on the social media platform (h/t @OurSf49ers_). Deebo Samuel is once again following the #49ers on Instagram.



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



Why PFF believes 49ers signing Julio Jones makes sense

By David Bonilla

With the free-agency frenzy long gone and the NFL Draft behind us, NFL teams will move toward tweaking their rosters in preparation for the 2022 season. It's worth noting that there are still some well-known free agents awaiting offers—names like Jadeveon Clowney and Odell Beckham Jr. Veteran center J.C. Tretter might make sense for the San Francisco 49ers. The team is uncertain about the future of Alex Mack. General manager John Lynch is sounding less confident about the possibility of his starting center returning for his 14th NFL season. However, it's not Tretter that Pro Football Focus analyst Ben Linsey believes would be a good signing by the 49ers. Instead,
