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.

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

By David Bonilla

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



49ers-Saints Injury Report: No Arik Armstead at practice; Deebo Samuel, Samson Ebukam limited

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. The 49ers held a light practice on Wednesday, a precaution given the quick turnaround from Monday night's game in Mexico City against the Arizona Cardinals. The team didn't arrive back in the Bay Area until 6:15 a.m. on Tuesday and pushed the start time for Wednesday's practice back to 4:03 p.m. "We're starting a lot later, and we'll just walk-through today," head coach Kyle Shanahan said before practice. "And we've got to mix in Thanksgiving a little bit on Thursday, so we'll dial things back a little bit for that also." Wednesday's practice took place inside Levi's Stadium, something that doesn't

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. The media did not have access to watch the Thanksgiving practice. The team gave them the day off due to the holiday. That means there are no observations to report from the Thursday session, which was a lighter walk-through. Reporters will return to watch the last practice of the week, which begins on Friday at 12:18 p.m. PT. On Wednesday, the 49ers were without defensive lineman Arik Armstead, and wide receiver Deebo Samuel and defensive end Samson Ebukam were limited. That remained the case on Thursday. Tackle Trent Williams returned from his veteran day off. Below are Thursday's



49ers-Saints Injury Report: Deebo Samuel "questionable" for Sunday; Arik Armstead "doubtful"

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
