49ers practice report: Jimmy Garoppolo still out, Trent Williams returns

By Kyle Madson

The 49ers’ injury report from Thursday’s practice had two very notable pieces of information on it. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is still out with a calf injury after missing Wednesday’s session. Left tackle Trent Williams was a full participant after missing Wednesday because of a shoulder injury.

Garoppolo’s absence points even more toward rookie Trey Lance making his first-career start, although head coach Kyle Shanahan said he won’t rule out the QB until he’s required to by doctors. That will at least leave the door open for him to start in Arizona.

Williams missing Sunday would’ve meant the 49ers would start rookie Jaylon Moore at left tackle in the most important game of the year.

Here’s a full rundown of Thursday’s participation report:
