49ers LB Fred Warner says he is ‘good to go’ after injury scare vs. Cowboys

Jan 17, 2022 at 10:47 AM--


On Monday morning, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner provided an injury update via Twitter.

"Sorry for the scare yesterday, everyone," Warner wrote. "I appreciate everyone showing love and support for me and the fellas. We'll be good to go. Huge win, onto the next."


Warner exited the second half of Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys with what the team reported as an ankle injury. He did not return and watched the remainder of the 23-17 playoff win from the sidelines.

Warner went down with a non-contact injury on the Cowboys' drive that followed the interception thrown by Jimmy Garoppolo. He finished the game with five tackles and sounds optimistic that he will play on Saturday night at Lambeau Field against the Green Bay Packers.

Warner's injury was just one of two concerning injuries to 49ers defenders. Defensive end Nick Bosa suffered a head injury on a collision with teammate D.J. Jones near the end of the first half and did not return. He needs to clear the concussion protocol to play this weekend.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan is scheduled to speak with reporters on Monday afternoon.

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



George Kittle spoke with Deebo Samuel, says 49ers WR is 'in a good place'

The drama surrounding Deebo Samuel has died down a bit. Much of that is due to the San Francisco 49ers not granting his trade request ahead of the draft. By not doing so, the team declared that they believe the relationship with their do-everything wideout can be mended. George Kittle has been making the media rounds today. Of course, among the questions directed toward the All-Pro tight end involves the status of Samuel. After all, it's a storyline that dominated NFL headlines heading into the draft. "I actually talked to him a few days ago," Kittle said on The Pat McAfee Show. "Yeah, he seemed like he was in a good mood. He was hanging out with his kid, who he just had. ... I didn't ask about his contract, so we were just talking about other things,



49ers' Trey Lance finally healthy after injury-riddled rookie campaign, isn't concerned with outside criticism

It feels like everywhere you turn, there is someone reporting skepticism about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. On Tuesday, Lance and his teammates (most of them, at least) were back on the practice field for the second day of organized team activities. This time, reporters were allowed to watch. Lance was among the players made available to the media after the on-field session. A reporter asked him about the reports of doubt from those on the outside looking in. The quarterback offered an honest response. "In the most respectful way possible, it doesn't change how I feel about you guys as people, but it's not my job to care what you guys say," Lance told reporters. "Or anyone else on social media. For me, I care what the guys in the locker room think,



George Kittle impressed by Trey Lance's progress, says 49ers QB benefitted from Jimmy Garoppolo

It isn't easy to speculate on the development of Trey Lance during practices. Most of those criticizing the young quarterback were not watching him every day. One player who did watch Lance every day is his San Francisco 49ers teammate, George Kittle. The All-Pro tight end loves what he has seen from the now-22-year-old quarterback. Lance is expected to be the 49ers' starter come Week 1 of the upcoming season. However, the starter of the past four-and-a-half seasons, Jimmy Garoppolo, remains on the roster. Garoppolo is recovering from the shoulder surgery he underwent on March 8, so the 49ers can't trade the veteran quarterback until he is medically cleared to throw again. Kittle joined The Pat McAfee Show on Friday and was asked if Garoppolo remaining
