Shanahan provides updates on Bosa, Warner, reveals Garoppolo injury

漏 Kevin Jairaj | 2022 Jan 16

There is what seems to be good news, and some surprising news.

First the good. Kyle Shanahan said in his Monday afternoon presser that he is optimistic both Nick Bosa (concussion) and Fred Warner (low-ankle sprain) will be able to give it a go on Saturday in the Divisional Playoff Game vs. the Packers in Green Bay.

Bosa was knocked out of the Dallas game late in the first half and did not return, so his status for Saturday will be based on how quickly he can clear the league’s concussion protocols.

Warner’s injury looked extremely serious, with the linebacker writhing in pain on the AT&T Stadium turf during the fourth quarter. Though he sat for the remainder of the game, Warner was never officially ruled out which was a good sign. The linebacker posted on social media Monday that he thinks he’ll be good to go Saturday, and that he is sorry for the scare.

There was no scare that Jimmy Garoppolo sustained any injury beyond his thumb issue on Sunday, but apparently that was the case. Shanahan said that Garoppolo sustained a slight sprain to his throwing shoulder in the second quarter. The 49ers believe the issue to be minor, and that Garoppolo should be good to practice on Wednesday.

The only other injury was to defensive end Jordan Willis, whose high-ankle sprain is likely to keep him out of the Divisional Round.
