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.

Nick Bosa, Trey Lance among those who immediately welcomed Drake Jackson to the 49ers

It was amazing for new San Francisco 49ers defensive end Drake Jackson to hear his name called on Friday night during the second day of the 2022 NFL Draft. His new teammate, Arik Armstead, announced the pick. Even more amazing for the 21-year-old defender was having several of his new 49ers teammates, including Armstead and Nick Bosa, immediately reach out to him. "It's crazy. I talked to both of them," Jackson said Wednesday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "Nick Bosa texted me. Arik Armstead FaceTimed me right after. ... Trey Lance had called me. Emmanuel Moseley hit me up. I was astounded. I'm like, 'Damn, this is crazy.' Everybody hitting me up off the team, but they're kind of like legends too. I'm fanboying, but I've got to be professional



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

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



49ers rookie OL Nick Zakelj could play center in the NFL

The San Francisco 49ers' rookie minicamp kicked off Friday afternoon, with the 49ers revealing the rookie jersey numbers prior to media availability. Sixth-round selection Nick Zakelj, who will wear No. 63, spoke with the media on Friday for the first time since draft night and shared a rather interesting fact about his football childhood. Zakelj is a Cleveland native, drawing a connection to Alex Mack, whom the rookie watched while growing up. Mack began his career as a member of the Cleveland Browns, playing from 2009-2015 before stints with the Falcons and the 49ers. "I think definitely watching guys like Alex, especially growing up in Cleveland, being drafted, I

On Thursday morning, Matt Lombardo of FanSided caused a good deal of chatter with a single tweet. It stated that, per his sources, the San Francisco 49ers have been "continually underwhelmed" by the development of now-second-year quarterback Trey Lance. I have heard that the #49ers' staff has been continually underwhelmed by Trey Lance … https://t.co/BfypDIHzXo— Matt Lombardo (@MattLombardoNFL)
