49ers-Packers Injury Report: Nick Bosa, Ambry Thomas ‘questionable’; Kyle Shanahan optimistic about both

Jan 20, 2022 at 3:07 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Divisional playoff contest against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Nick Bosa is among three players listed as "questionable for the game. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan sounds optimistic that his impressive pass rusher will be available this weekend.

"We've got to put him on there because of the steps of the protocol, but it's looking good," Shanahan said.


Shanahan was also optimistic about cornerback Ambry Thomas, also "questionable." He is dealing with a bone bruise in his knee.

"I'm hoping he'll go," Shanahan said. "That's why we've got him as 'questionable.' I think he'll be alright, but that will come down to seeing how he is on game day."

Shanahan wouldn't reveal which cornerback—Josh Norman or Dontae Johnson—would start if Thomas cannot play.

Defensive end Jordan Willis has a chance to play despite suffering a high-ankle sprain against the Dallas Cowboys.

"He's had high-ankle sprains before," Shanahan said. "So the fact that he has a chance to go this week means it could be a little bit more of an old injury mixed with some new. So the fact that he has a chance makes me hope that it's a little bit more of the old.

"We'll see how he reacts on this plane ride and when we get out there because that doesn't usually help. So, we'll get him on his feet tomorrow in our walkthrough and stuff. But if he ends up playing, I think that kind of tells you it was a little bit more of an old injury."

It's worth noting that neither quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder, thumb) nor linebacker Fred Warner (ankle) have a status designation, which means they are good to go for Saturday.

Below are the official injury reports for the 49ers and Packers, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff. Also included are Thursday's practice participation reports.

49ers rookie Drake Jackson ready to 'get the answers to the test' from Nick Bosa

By David Bonilla
May 14

Drake Jackson knows he's going into a great situation. Two weeks ago, the 21-year-old rookie defensive end was the first selection by the San Francisco 49ers, added during the second round. Eventually, the 49ers expect him to fill the role once envisioned for Dee Ford—a strong pass rusher opposite phenom Nick Bosa. Jackson could develop into that complementary piece for the 49ers defense. Luckily, he has a great role model in Bosa. "Watching him, the whole D-line, watching them hunt, I cannot wait to go get out there with those guys and just turn up with them," Jackson told reporters on Friday. After Jackson was drafted, Bosa was among several



PFF ranks 49ers' Nick Bosa as the best of the NFL's young rising stars

Pro Football Focus (PFF) did their annual ranking of the top 25 players under 25 entering the season, compiling a list of the many young stars that have taken over football in the past few years. With the criteria being "under 25," several players graduated from PFF's rankings last year, including 49ers' star linebacker Fred Warner, who came in as the best player under 25 on PFF's list in 2021, which was ahead of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, then-Tennessee Titans receiver A.J. Brown, and San Francisco's own Nick Bosa, who slotted in at two, three, and four, respectively on the list. In their 2022 version, PFF ranked Bosa as their best player under 25 in 2022, ahead of quarterback Justin Herbert, running back Jonathan Taylor, and most notably,



49ers OTAs: Kyle Shanahan provides several injury updates

By David Bonilla

Kyle Shanahan wasn't eager to share an injury report on Tuesday after the San Francisco 49ers concluded their second practice of organized team activities. He had a list of injuries in front of him in case anyone asked about specific players. However, the coach didn't unnecessarily volunteer any information because he doesn't have to right now. That didn't stop reporters from asking about specific players based on their lack of participation during Tuesday's practice. Those questions led to Shanahan providing several updates. LB Azeez Al-Shaair Al-Shaair underwent shoulder and knee surgery after the season. He is working toward being ready for training camp at the end of July. LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, OG



Kyle Shanahan still expects 49ers to trade Jimmy Garoppolo but it's 'not a guarantee'

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters for the first time since the draft. He stepped up to the podium after Tuesday's practice, the second of organized team activities. Of course, there was no shortage of reporters trying to pry quarterback information from the head coach, who did his best to limit his responses to such questions. That's likely because Shanahan knows how big of an offseason storyline the quarterback situation has become. Most expect second-year quarterback Trey Lance to be the starter, replacing veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The 49ers hoped to trade Garoppolo by now, but the quarterback undergoing shoulder surgery on March 8 halted any trade talks. Shanahan has suggested that the 49ers would be willing to hold onto
