49ers reportedly receive good news from Trent Williams’ X-rays

Jan 23, 2022 at 3:21 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers got some good news on Sunday about the status of their All-Pro tackle, Trent Williams. Williams was seen using crutches after Saturday night's game against the Green Bay Packers, putting his status for next weekend's NFC Championship Game into question.

"We're going to have to get some X-rays and stuff on him," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the 49ers' 13-10 victory. "I mean, I saw him hobbling around the whole second half, so I'm not sure yet."

Williams got his right ankle wrapped after looking to be in pain in the third quarter. He stayed in the game but was later seen limping off the field. Williams played 53 of the 49ers' 54 offensive snaps against the Packers at Lambeau Field.

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that the X-rays returned negative.

"Those X-rays did not show any fracture, according to the source," wrote Maiocco.

We'll see how cautious the 49ers are with Williams during the upcoming week of practices. The team will travel to play the winner of Sunday's game between the Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which is tied 27-27, as of this post.

Update: The Rams won 30-27. That means the 49ers will travel to SoFi Stadium for the second time this season.

49ers' George Kittle: 'Trent Williams is the best football player in the NFL'

Trent Williams' 97.8 overall Pro Football Focus grade from the 2021 regular season led the NFL. In fact, it was the highest-ever grade awarded by the analytics site. Now, some will criticize the grade, arguing that you can't consider an offensive tackle the best player in the league. Don't tell that to All-Pro tight end George Kittle, Williams' San Francisco 49ers teammate. "Trent Williams is the best football player in the NFL," Kittle declared Friday on The Pat McAfee Show (h/t NBC Sports Bay Area). "I don't care. You could talk to me about any



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,

San Francisco 49ers rookie wideout Danny Gray spoke with the media for the first time since his draft interview, as he prepared for the 49ers' rookie minicamp, which is slated to begin on Friday. Gray, who was selected with the last pick in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 105th overall, is a player with electrifying straight-line speed, which was confirmed with his 4.33 40-yard dash at the combine. However, Gray's talents aren't limited to just his speed; he works well with the ball in his hands and can be physical after the catch, despite his relatively slight 186-pound frame. When addressing his skillset, Gray acknowledged the biggest development over his



Why 49ers rookie C Dohnovan West might've gone undrafted

The San Francisco 49ers were considered by many as one of the winners of the undrafted free agent process, signing centers Dohnovan West and Jason Poe alongside a slew of potential contributors to round out their 90-man roster. West, a prospect many in the media believed would be drafted in the mid to late rounds, did not end up hearing his name called, making him one of the most sought-after undrafted free agents of the class. He quickly signed with the 49ers, who reportedly gave him $100,000 in guaranteed money with a $10,000 signing bonus. Why did West go undrafted? Speaking to the media for the first time as a 49er, West dove into the offseason
