49ers vs. Jaguars pregame: Trent Williams, Deebo Samuel return; Chase Young makes debut

Two San Francisco 49ers players, Deebo Samuel and Trent Williams, are set to return to the football field after sustaining injuries on October 15 against the Cleveland Browns. Samuel has been sidelined for the last two games with a hairline fracture in his shoulder, while Williams has been working through an ankle injury.

Samuel practiced all week and wasn't on the team's Friday injury report, indicating he was set to play today against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Williams' status was less certain. While he returned to the practice field on Thursday, he was officially listed as "questionable" for the Week 10 contest. Williams and head coach Kyle Shanahan sounded less than optimistic about his chances of playing.

"I think he's real questionable to be playing," Shanahan said.

Williams added, "It's up in the air; it really is."

With the veteran left tackle ailing, the 49ers should have Jaylon Moore ready to go in case Williams needs a breather during the action. The team has a lot of confidence in the backup offensive lineman.

"I think Jaylon's played his butt off," Williams told reporters on Friday before the 49ers departed for Jacksonville. "I've been really, really impressed with the way he's performed. Obviously, I watched it closely the last few games, so I've been really impressed with his progress that he's made from last year to this year, even from the preseason to now. He details his work. He's definitely a young, improving player, and I got a lot of faith in him if he had to do it again."

Also listed as "questionable" on Friday was defensive tackle Javon Hargrave, who had a knee issue flare up during Thursday's practice. However, he is active and set to play.

Chase Young's 49ers debut

The 49ers traded a 2024 compensatory pick to the Washington Commanders for Chase Young. The defensive end will make his red and gold debut against the Jaguars.

"He's an impressive player, and he's been playing well here of late," general manager John Lynch recently stated. "He's been playing a lot here of late as well. We've always said that the D-line is really the engine that drives, not just this defense, but this team. And we like our D-line, but we love adding to it as well.

"We always want more from that unit, and I think it was somewhat of a no-brainer when Chase was there, available."

Young is anticipated to contribute significantly in his debut. He joins a formidable defensive line that includes his former Ohio State teammate, Nick Bosa, along with Javon Hargrave and Arik Armstead. The team looks forward to Young's substantial impact on the field.

Lynch added, "I think he ought to be raring and ready to go, and we're excited to get him out there."

Nick Bosa confident ahead of 49ers-Eagles matchup, surprised by Chase Young's quick impact

There was significant offseason banter between the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles following the NFC Championship Game. While the Eagles came out on top, the 49ers felt they couldn't showcase their true capabilities due to quarterback Brock Purdy's early-game UCL injury in his throwing arm. The two teams have been on a Week 13 collision course throughout the season, with the possibility of meeting again in the postseason. Sunday's highly anticipated game will showcase two red-hot teams, offering the 49ers a chance to demonstrate what might have been. "I ain't going to keep going on about what could've happened and what would've happened, but yeah, it would've definitely been a different outcome," remarked 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel during the

On Tuesday, Nick Bosa expressed his surprise at how rapidly pass rusher Chase Young has impacted the San Francisco 49ers' defense since the team traded for him last month. The 49ers' pressure rate has surged, and the defensive front has reached the opposing quarterback more regularly. Since Young's arrival, Bosa has recorded five sacks, a considerable improvement from the three he had before the trade. Bosa believes his former Ohio State teammate is developing into one of the league's most dominant pass rushers. "Just watching him on tape, I think he could be like one of the top elite pass rushers in the league. And he's starting to get the hang of the scheme," Bosa

Trent Williams asserts that his San Francisco 49ers are the best team in the NFL, and after Sunday's beatdown of the defending NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles, it's hard to argue with the big man. Most felt the two teams were closely matched heading into the Week 13 showdown, a rematch of last season's NFC Championship Game. What did we learn from the contest? While the Eagles are good, San Francisco may have declared to the league that they are a different class of team. Last season, the Eagles came out on top, advancing to the Super Bowl, but the injury to quarterback Brock Purdy left lingering questions. This time around, fans got a glimpse of what might have been after a confident Niners squad outperformed the Eagles in every way. Josina

Wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk addressed reporters after practice, downplaying the emotional significance of Sunday's showdown between NFC powerhouses. Both players, vocal about their disappointment after last season's devastating defeat, had previously suggested that the better team failed to come out on top. Regarding the upcoming rematch, Samuel told reporters,
