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 projected to receive four compensatory picks in 2023

The San Francisco 49ers ended up with four compensatory picks in this past draft after losing one as part of last year's trade to move up to the No. 3 overall pick. Surprisingly, the 49ers didn't trade any of the others—or any of their nine total selections heading into the draft. According to draft analyst Lance Zierlein, San Francisco could end up with four again in 2023. Compensatory picks are awarded to teams when their offseason losses from the previous offseason outweigh the offseason gains. The bonus picks come in rounds three through seven. "The 49ers will receive the second of two third-rounders awarded for Mike McDaniel being hired as



Why PFF believes Trey Lance is in a good situation with 49ers in 2022

Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. Those are the former first-round quarterbacks set to enter their second NFL seasons. Lawrence and Jones started all 17 games in 2021. Wilson started 13, and Fields started 10. Lance earned just two starts. However, that doesn't mean the soon-to-be 22-year-old San Francisco 49ers quarterback isn't set up for success. Analyst Sam Monson ranked the current team situations for the NFL's top second-year quarterbacks in 2022. Zach Wilson topped the list after the New York Jets' offseason efforts to build around their own 22-year-old quarterback. Right behind him, though, is Lance, who comes in at No. 2. That makes sense. After all, he's on a team that has been to the NFC title game twice in the past three



Why Steve Smith Sr. is hoping for a 49ers-Rams NFL opener

The NFL will release the entire 2022 schedule on May 12. Three days earlier, the matchups and dates of select games will be revealed. One of those will likely be the NFL kickoff game—the first game that kicks off the 272-game slate of matchups. Typically, the reigning Super Bowl champions will host that first game of the season. That means some team will need to travel to SoFi Stadium to try to hand the Los Angeles Rams an 0-1 start. Steve Smith Sr. of NFL Media is hoping the visiting team is the San Francisco 49ers. It's certainly a possibility. However, the Rams are also scheduled to host the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Las Vegas Raiders, and Seattle Seahawks. Why does
