Team could still be interested in Javon Walker

Apr 16, 2006 at 10:08 AM--


Bill Williamson of the Denver Post reports there is speculation in Green Bay the Packers will grant wide receiver Javon Walker his wish and deal him.

If Walker is traded, is it likely to happen during the week of the NFL Draft or during the Draft itself. It appears the Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers could be the front-runners for Walker.

Green Bay has maintained that they expect Walker to stay. But if a good enough offer comes along, including a draft pick, it might be tempting for the Packers to rid themselves of the distraction Walker is sure to create.

Christian McCaffrey returns to practice ahead of 49ers-Eagles; Elijah Mitchell still sidelined

There probably wasn't much concern inside the San Francisco 49ers building surrounding running back Christian McCaffrey's availability for Sunday's NFC Championship Game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. When asked about the chances of not playing this weekend, McCaffrey responded, "Zero." The media has kept an eye on the situation because McCaffrey missed the first two practices this week due to a calf contusion. The running back was back on the practice field on Friday, though, indicating he will be ready to go against the Eagles. The bad news is that running back Elijah Mitchell, who also missed Wednesday's and Thursday's practices, was not on the



49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo says Super Bowl return 'still up in the air'

The San Francisco 49ers have officially ruled out quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this weekend's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. That wasn't unexpected. The chances of the former starter suiting up for Sunday's playoff bout, backing up rookie Brock Purdy, were slim. "Yeah, it's just been an outside chance the whole time, and that was still an outside chance," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Thursday, before that outside chance turned into no chance. The 49ers never placed Garoppolo on injured reserve, leaving the door open for a playoff return. However, we are now down to just one more game as a possibility—Super



49ers' Kyle Shanahan still not optimistic about Jimmy Garoppolo's return this week

It seems it's time for your weekly Jimmy Garoppolo update. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been sidelined since suffering a broken foot on December 4. However, there is a slight chance Garoppolo could return and suit up for the playoffs, likely serving as rookie Brock Purdy's backup. That probably won't be this week, though. Last week, head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that the quarterback probably wouldn't be ready for an NFC Championship Game appearance. However, Garoppolo suiting up for the Super Bowl, should the 49ers make it that far, might be more likely. On Monday, Shanahan was once again asked about Garoppolo's recovery and



Kyle Shanahan sees improved Cowboys team as 49ers prepare for playoff rematch

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing to host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. It's a rematch of last season's playoff meeting, which resulted in a 23-17 49ers victory. Some have argued that the Cowboys are very similar to that team that lost in the Wild Card Round last year and that the 49ers are improved, making San Francisco the clear favorite. Head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't listening to any of that. Instead, he was impressed by what he saw from Dallas during Monday night's rout of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "They're a good team," Shanahan told reporters before Wednesday's practice. "They've been that all year. They probably looked their best on Monday night, which you expected them to, just with the atmosphere and everything. They've been good for a while, and just watching
