On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:
#1 Joe, things are starting to look up on the injury front for the 49ers lets take a few players at a time here and we’ll start with running back Christian McCaffrey (knee) defensive lineman Arik Armstead are both back in practice do you see them getting in Sunday’s game in Santa Clara.
#2 Joe, wide receiver Deebo Samuel joined in practice with helmet and uniform on. Samuel looks pretty anxious to get back in the line up.
#3 However when left tackle Trent Williams slowly walked on the field for practice he went off slowly as he walked on going back to the dressing room as reported by head coach Kyle Shanahan who said that Williams is suffering from back spasms. Williams is listed as questionable for Sunday.
#4 Joe, if Williams is not able to play Colton McKivitz will fill in for Williams. McKivitz filled in for Williams against the Los Angeles Rams on Oct 3rd a game which the 49ers defeated the Rams 24-9.
#5 The Miami Dolphins (8-3) come calling this afternoon at Levi Stadium one of the best teams in the AFC. The 49ers have won four straight at 7-4 and have the home field advantage. It’s Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa matching up against the 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo. Joe what your prediction for the outcome of this contest today.
