Kyle Shanahan provides updates on the K’Waun Williams, Richard Sherman injuries

It could be worse. Much worse.

The San Francisco 49ers are back to the grind after a day off and have concluded Sunday’s practice. We had a few players that were listed as week to week on the pre-practice injury report most notably Richard Sherman, last week he went down with what was a hamstring issue and was pulled as precaution.

In his post practice press conference, Shanahan said that Sherman had a grade 1 hamstring strain and he’ll be out for a week. It’s not exactly the end of the world as far as injuries, but it’s not just being tight like we originally thought. Grade 1 is the least severe of hamstring strains (by comparison, grade 3 would be a severe tear of the muscle). While it was obvious he would be out for the 49ers preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys, this all but confirms it.

Shanahan also updated everyone on the status of K’Waun Williams. Williams had to be helped off the field during Sunday’s practice with a rolled ankle. Shanahan said they’ll still be evaluating it, but they don’t think it’s a high ankle sprain. More likely than not, Williams will be limited on Monday.

The 49ers are getting nicked up, but hopefully they are dodging the bullets of anying severe.
