Fred Warner gave the San Francisco 49ers and their fans a bit of a scare when he suffered an ankle injury against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, but he says he's feeling confident in his availability for Saturday night's Divisional Playoff game between the 49ers and Green Bay Packers. Warner fell to the turf in visible pain during the fourth quarter of the 49ers' 23-17 Wild Card win over the Cowboys and at the time was declared questionable to return to the game. But he let fans know on social media Monday that he was feeling well, and on Tuesday he explained why he has optimism about his

Trey Lance has primarily spent his first NFL season as a student, learning the game. He's had two starts in place of an injured Jimmy Garoppolo but has spent most game days on the sideline as an observer. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has benefited from watching Lance in practices all season and witnessing his development.

"It held up," Jimmy Garoppolo said of his injured right thumb after the San Francisco 49ers' 23-17 playoff victory over the Dallas Cowboys. "Pretty much the same as last week. I mean, it's a day-to-day fight." The torn ligament and chipped bone in Garoppolo's thumb may have contributed to the quarterback's costly fourth-quarter interception. Garoppolo was targeting wide receiver Trent Sherfield, but the football ended up in the hands of Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown. "I didn't grip it the right way," Garoppolo later told NBC Sports' Peter King. "Not trying to make excuses, but things happen like that. Really not too much more to it than

Cooper Neill, a Dallas-based photographer and journalist, captured a great photo of San Francisco 49ers tackle Trent Williams following Sunday's playoff victory over the Dallas Cowboys. It shows the All-Pro tackle all smiles while interacting with Cowboys fans, even as two of them expressed their displeasure by raising their middle finger at the 6-foot-5, 320-pound behemoth of a man. Pro Football Focus shared the photo, and it's hard to disagree with their comment that it belongs in the Hall of Fame. The still of Williams at AT&T Stadium is quickly becoming a fan-favorite on social media. This photo of Trent Williams and
