The 49ers on Friday got a bit of good news when their Week 8 injury report came out, but there weren’t any major surprises.
No matter what it appears they’ll go into their matchup against the Bears in Chicago shorthanded, with the potential to get a couple key players in uniform after truncated weeks of practice.
Perhaps the two biggest pieces of news are the absence of Trey Lance and Trent Williams’ designation. Lance was not on the report and head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters the rookie would be the backup quarterback in the Windy City. Lance missed Week 7 with a knee sprain he suffered in his first start back in Week 5 in Arizona.
Williams also missed Week 7 and didn’t practice the first two days of Week 8, but he returned to the field Friday which gives him a chance to play. He is officially ‘questionable.’
