The Buccaneers Vs 49ers injury report week 14 is topped with the sidelining of Jimmy Garoppolo after a left foot fracture suffered in week 13. While many people were looking forward to Garoppolo facing off against Brady for the first time, fans will instead be getting Brady vs Brock Purdy, aka Mr. Irrelevant. Let’s jump into the Injury report for week 14 for the Bucs Vs 49ers.
Jimmy Garoppolo Injury Update:
Jimmy Garoppolo sustained a significant left foot injury on Sunday’s game against Maimi. Initial reports thought it could be a season-ending injury, possibly a lisfranc fracture. A Lisfranc injury occurs when there are either broken bones or torn ligaments in the midfoot area.
After receiving an MRI and multiple opinions, ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that the broken foot won’t require surgery, making it possible for him to return in seven or eight weeks. There is even a possibility that he could return late in the playoffs.
In the meantime, the 49er’s fate is in the hands of the final pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, Brock Purdy. The final pick is always nicknamed “Mr. Irrelevent”. Purdy played college ball for Iowa State and went for 25 of 37 for 210 yards and two touchdowns in week 13 against the Dolphins.
How will this rookie QB fair against a 21-year veteran and arguably the best quarterback of all time? We will find out on Sunday!
Other Notable 49er’s Players on the Injury Report Week 14
One of the most notable players that is injured on the 49ers is OT Hassan Ridgeway who is out for 6-8 weeks after suffering a pectoral strain on Sunday. Although described as a strain and not a tear, they are pretty much the same thing, and he likely suffered a partial tear, ending his regular season.
Safety Travarius Moore is out for “a few weeks” due to a knee injury, and did not practice in practice this week.
The NFL’s leading sacker, Nick Bosa, is questionable with a hamstring injury and did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. Kyle Shanahan was quick to report that the injury is ‘hamstring irritation’, and is not describing it as a significant injury.
Guard Spencer Burford is also questionable with an ankle injury but was able to do a limited practice on Wednesday and Thursday.
Trent Williams did not practice on Wednesday and is dealing with back spasms. He was able to hit the field with the team on Thursday with full participation. The 49ers report that they are ‘resting’ the player, and he is likely to make an appearance on Sunday.
Spencer Burford, Christian McCaffrey and Deebo Samuel were all limited in practice this week, but are all likely to play on Sunday.
Tampa Bay Injury Report Week 14
Cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting was limited in practice on Wednesday with a quadriceps injury. He sat out Monday’s game against the Saints and the Buccaneers staff only has a few more days to determine if he will be able to play on Sunday.
Tampa Bay’s two starting safeties, Mike Edwards and Antoine Winfield, both remain sidelined for Wednesday and Thursday prep after sitting out the Week 13 win over New Orleans. Mike Edwards is questionable with a hamstring injury, while Antoine Winfield Jr. continues to nurse an ankle injury. It appears that both players might be trending toward a second straight absence.
NT Vita Vae popped up on the injury report on Thursday with a foot and shoulder injury. He was on the injury report last week as well but was able to suit up and play on Monday Night. He will likely do the same thing this week.
Tristan Wirfs is also on the list with an ankle/knee injury, and is questionable for Sunday. According to reports, he did not practice on Thursday.
Leonard Fournette was added to the injury report on Thursday with an undisclosed foot injury.
Cameron Brate missed his fifth game of the season on Monday night but was able to practice in full on Wednesday and Thursday. He is on track to play in Week 14 versus the San Francisco 49ers, but will likely have to split playing time with rookie Cade Otton.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
