49ers-Rams Injury Report: Trent Williams ‘questionable’ for NFC Championship, ‘adamant’ he’ll play

Jan 28, 2022 at 3:08 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their NFC Championship Game contest against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

The status of offensive tackle Trent Williams remains the biggest question heading into the game. He suffered an ankle injury against the Green Bay Packers and is listed as "questionable" for Sunday after not practicing all week.

After Friday's practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Williams remains hopeful that he will play against the Rams.

"He came out for walk-through today, and Trent's adamant that he's going," Shanahan said. "He was last time, too. I believe Trent when he says that he's going to do everything he can to play, so I'd be surprised if he doesn't. But I was surprised last time. I was also surprised he was able to finish the game versus Green Bay.

"So hopefully, his mindset will be how his body reacts on Sunday. We know it would help us a lot, but if not, we'll deal with it."

Shanahan was asked whether the offensive lineman is dealing with a high- or low-ankle sprain but was unwilling to provide an answer.

"Good question, though," Shanahan added.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is no longer bothered by his shoulder injury but is still playing through a painful thumb injury. On Sunday, he'll have an opportunity to lead his team to a Super Bowl appearance for the second time in three years.

"Feels great. Arm's ready to roll," Garoppolo said of his shoulder.

The only other player listed as "questionable" is running back Jeff Wilson Jr.

Below are the official injury reports for the 49ers and Rams, provided by the 49ers Communications staff. Also included are Friday's practice participation reports.

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

By David Bonilla

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.

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

Bleacher Report identifies 49ers' biggest remaining need

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers did what they could to address offseason needs. They signed Charvarius Ward and drafted two cornerbacks to bolster that position. In addition, they hope to have found a replacement for Dee Ford in second-round draft pick Drake Jackson. There remains uncertainty about who will be playing alongside Jimmie Ward at safety, but the team has options. While the 49ers drafted two offensive linemen—Spencer Burford and Nick Zakelj—the interior of that line is among the team's most prominent question marks heading into the 2022 season. It will be tough to replace Laken Tomlinson, who is now with the New York Jets. Also, Tom Compton left for the Denver Broncos after just two seasons with the 49ers.
