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.

The San Francisco 49ers have come close to hoisting the franchise's sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy. They fell just short during the 2012 season, losing 34-31 to the Baltimore Ravens. Seven years later, they fell short again, collapsing in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl and watching as the Kansas City Chiefs celebrated a championship. Last season, the 49ers were a play or two away from returning to sports' biggest stage, falling to the eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in the NFC title game. San Francisco can't get over the hump. On Monday, the Bay Area celebrated the Golden State Warriors' seventh championship as thousands of fans swarmed Market Street for the parade. It's an inspiring sight for the championship-hungry 49ers. "Yeah,

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo hoping for a 'quick resolution' once healthy, per report

There has been some chatter that the San Francisco 49ers might be willing to hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo if they can't find a trade partner for the veteran quarterback or if an interested team tries to lowball the Niners. San Francisco had hoped to trade Garoppolo in March. The quarterback undergoing shoulder surgery halted all trade talks. Then the number of quarterback-needy teams greatly diminished. 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have repeatedly indicated that they expect Garoppolo to be healthy enough to throw again by early July. We're almost to that point. On Saturday, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that Garoppolo's

Another NFL wide receiver has seen his bank account grow this offseason. Earlier today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Washington Commanders are signing Terry McLaurin to a three-year extension worth up to $71 million in new money with $53.2 million guaranteed. That's nearly $23.7 million annually in potential new cash and about $17.7 million in new guaranteed money. Meanwhile, everyone is still waiting to see how the San Francisco 49ers resolve their situation with their star wideout, Deebo Samuel. It wasn't that long ago that he requested to be traded after watching several of his peers earn big paydays this offseason. Many, including star tight end George Kittle,
