It is not usually common for the 49ers to have a clean bill of health.
But going into their divisional playoff matchup with the Green Bay Packers, their injury report reveals that they will be completely fit. Well, with the exception of one player being ruled out.
Defensive end Clelin Ferrell will be out of action against the Packers on Saturday due to a knee injury. He suffered the injury in the regular season finale against the LA Rams.
Should the 49ers advance, then he may have a shot at returning. For now they will be without him. Ferrell has been a key rotational player on the defensive front, but overall his loss isn’t a serious blow to the team.
The only other player carrying an injury designation against the Packers is linebacker Dre Greenlaw. He has been nursing Achilles tendinitis for the last week now, but it isn’t considered serious.
His name is only on the injury report due to him missing practice, which has always been as a precaution to keep him as fresh as he can be. So, the 49ers are healthy as can be and the healthiest they have been all season long. Even Arik Armstead is making his return after missing over the last month of games.
In fact, the 49ers are getting reinforcements for this game. Safety and key special teams player George Odum is being activated off the Injured Reserve list. All hands on deck for the 49ers’ playoff run to return to the Super Bowl. Health, for now, will not be an excuse or deterring factor for them in emerging victorious.
