Trent Williams spotted at final practice ahead of 49ers-Rams but his workload is unknown

Jan 28, 2022 at 1:18 PM--

San Francisco 49ers tackle Trent Williams suffered an ankle injury during this past weekend's playoff win over the Green Bay Packers. However, he is hopeful of playing in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Williams was spotted when the 49ers stepped onto the practice field on Friday. While the team will hold a walk-through on Saturday, Friday's session is the last full practice of the week. Williams did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday.

However, it is unknown how much Williams will do on Friday—if anything. Reporters are only allowed to watch practice until team drills begin, and the offensive lineman is not taking part in warmups, the first portion of practice.

"He's walking very slowly," noted Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

"Trent Williams is in uniform but casually walking off the field as 49ers start their Friday practice," added Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

The 49ers will soon release the official game statuses for injured players and their practice participation report. We'll learn then whether or not Williams participated at all.

"I know how much this means to Trent," general manager John Lynch said on Thursday. "I believe, in his 11th year in the league, he hasn't had many opportunities in the playoffs. A guy like that, football means so much to him. He's going to do everything in his power, and Trent is doing that."

Lynch, like Williams and head coach Kyle Shanahan, is hopeful the All-Pro and Pro Bowl tackle will be on the field at SoFi Stadium on Sunday. The winning team will punch its ticket to the Super Bowl, which takes place at the same venue on February 13.

"[Williams is] doing treatment around the clock, I think making really good progress," Lynch added.

Running back Jeff Wilson Jr., who did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday, was on hand for Friday's session.

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

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

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

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
