49ers-Rams: Trent Williams active; Jeff Wilson among 7 inactives for Niners

Jan 30, 2022 at 2:11 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their NFC Championship playoff matchup on the road against the Los Angeles Rams. These players will not suit up for Sunday's game.

Inactives:


The most notable name absent from the list is offensive tackle Trent Williams, who did not practice this past week after suffering a high-ankle sprain a week ago against the Green Bay Packers. He is good to go against the Rams.

Williams was one of two 49ers players listed as "questionable" for Sunday. The other was running back Jeff Wilson Jr. He is also dealing with an ankle injury but looked to be moving well in pre-game warmups. However, he is among the team's inactive players and will be unavailable.

On Saturday, the 49ers activated running back Trent Cannon from injured reserve and activated linebacker Mark Nzeocha and quarterback Nate Sudfeld from the practice squad. Both Cannon and Nzeocha are active.

Sudfeld's activation was curious as Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance were expected to be QB1 and QB2 in the game, and the 49ers rarely carry more than two quarterbacks into a game. However, Sudfeld's activation may have been more about rewarding the quarterback with a game-day check for being on the active roster in the playoffs.

49ers' Brandon Aiyuk among PFF's Year 3 breakout candidates

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was a hot pick last year as a candidate primed to have a breakout season. Instead, it was third-year wideout Deebo Samuel who emerged as one of the best in the game. Aiyuk was slow out of the gate, hauling in just one pass for six yards in the Niners' first two games. He played just 51 percent of the offensive snaps through Week 2. Aiyuk finished the season strong, playing at least 90 percent of the offensive snaps in each game starting in Week 9. He amassed 43 receptions for 685 yards and four touchdowns during that span. Can Aiyuk have a Samuel-like breakout season in his third year—minus the running back snaps. One thousand, four hundred five of Samuel's 1,770 all-purpose yards came as a receiver. In 2021,



49ers' Deebo Samuel, George Kittle among PFF's top offensive duos

The San Francisco 49ers would probably love to see Brandon Aiyuk emerge as one of the top receivers in the NFL. That would make an Aiyuk-Deebo Samuel duo a headache for opposing defenses. Until then, the 49ers have two impressive offensive weapons in Samuel and tight end George Kittle. That's good news for second-year quarterback Trey Lance, who is expected to be the team's Week 1 starter after starting only two games as a rookie. The Samuel-Kittle pairing ranks among Pro Football Focus' top five offensive duos heading into the 2022 season. Kambui Bomani explains that both controlling the middle of the field at an elite level landed them within the



Bruschi: 49ers' Trey Lance has 'most to prove' among second-year QBs

The quarterbacks from the 2021 draft class will be linked together and compared for a long time. Most received a significant amount of playing time during their rookie seasons. The one who did not was San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. He started just two games and spent most of his freshman NFL season learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The upcoming season will be different, though. Lance is slated to become the 49ers' full-time starter, with Garoppolo likely to be shipped out of Santa Clara. One ESPN analyst believes Lance has the most to prove among the 2021 first-round quarterback class that also includes Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. "He is the one that has the most to prove because you almost have to prove your



49ers Mailbag: Reactions to fans' hot-takes

The good news? We're about five weeks away from 49ers training camp. The bad news? We're about five weeks away from 49ers training camp. We are now in the slowest, most boring time of the year for football fans. But we have you covered. We asked San Francisco 49ers fans for their hot takes or predictions regarding the team. Several responded. And now we're going to expose them (sorry—I meant "respond to" them). Let's get to it! Michael Arbios: Hot take is shouldn't have passed on Brady twice and keep Garoppolo, as Lance isn't ready to be the starter as proven by his poor play in the two games he started last season. I'm not sure how 'hot' this take is, due to its age, but I agree that the 49ers should have traded Jimmy Garoppolo
