49ers emerge injury-free for 3rd consecutive game

Nov 22, 2022 at 8:47 AM--



San Francisco 49ers cornerback Charvarius Ward briefly exited Monday night's game in the first quarter against the Arizona Cardinals with a groin injury. After returning, he was clearly playing through some discomfort. Ward participated in only one practice (Saturday) last week. He missed sessions on Thursday and Friday due to a personal matter, rejoining his teammates in Colorado Springs on Friday night.

Defensive back Jimmie Ward, playing in the slot once again, left the field in the third quarter and headed for the locker room. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw left the field in the fourth quarter, nursing his hand.

All of the injuries must have been minor because, for the third consecutive game, head coach Kyle Shanahan had nothing to report regarding in-game injury updates during his post-game press conference.

The only notable injury a 49ers player has sustained during that span wasn't even an in-game one. Rookie wide receiver Danny Gray rolled his ankle in pre-game warmups ahead of the Niners' Week 10 contest against the Los Angeles Chargers. Gray was fine by the week's end.

That doesn't mean new injury information won't emerge today or tomorrow. Still, for now, this is fantastic news for a team that seemed plagued with injuries through the first seven weeks of the season, averaging nearly four injuries per game. For now, San Francisco remains relatively healthy and talent-rich, which will help down the stretch as the team pushes for the playoffs, and, hopefully, more.

The 49ers will have a short week before taking on the New Orleans Saints at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. Two more home games—against the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers—will follow, and the Niners will play five of their final seven games at home.

The San Francisco 49ers are playing the Miami Dolphins at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. While running back Elijah Mitchell was placed on injured reserve this weekend, and guard Spencer Burford (ankle) was among the 49ers' four inactive players, the team entered the game relatively healthy. That was until an injury to the 49ers' starting quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo. Below are the 49ers-Dolphins in-game injury updates. QB Jimmy Garoppolo (foot, out) Garoppolo exited the game after the 49ers' first offensive drive. Garoppolo was



Jimmie Ward on what makes Jimmy Garoppolo a 49ers locker room favorite, why he expects to hit free agency

Jimmy Garoppolo is playing some sound football. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has had his share of critics over the years, but his team has won four consecutive games now and sits alone atop the NFC West. In Week 11, the offense seemed to be firing on all cylinders. Then, in Week 12, the defense took over and shut out the New Orleans Saints. Garoppolo's popularity inside the 49ers locker room has been well-documented. But what is it about the quarterback that makes him so likable among his teammates? "Because everybody sees kind of what goes on," 49ers safety Jimmie Ward said Tuesday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "Everybody always hears the outside noise when it comes to Jimmy G. We see the adversity that he has [faced], the perseverance

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 12 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel was limited this week due to a hamstring injury, putting his availability against the Saints into doubt. The 49ers have listed Samuel as "questionable" for Sunday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan noted that the wideout's current injury is unrelated to the previous hamstring injury from earlier in the season. Defensive lineman Arik Armstead returned to practice on Friday, the final session of the week. Jordan Schultz of The Score first reported Armstead's return but also stated that the



49ers-Saints: Kyle Shanahan provides details on Deebo Samuel's injury

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was limited all week during practices as the team prepares for its Week 12 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. When head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Wednesday, rattling off the names of those who would not practice or be limited, Samuel's name was absent. It wasn't until the official practice participation report was released that the wideout's injury was revealed to reporters. Samuel emerged from Monday night's win over the Arizona Cardinals with a hamstring injury. Although, it wasn't immediately known. And the injury was different than the Week 7 hamstring injury that occurred against the Kansas City Chiefs and kept him out the next week against the Los Angeles Rams. "No, it was something
