The 49ers had to play without left tackle Trent Williams last Sunday, but it looks like he’s on track to play this weekend.

Williams returned to practice on Thursday as a limited participant and said after the session that his elbow injury is in a lot better shape than he was at this time last week.

“The elbow is doing good,” Williams said, via Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com. “It’s made a lot of improvement over the last week or so. I practiced today. I felt pretty good.”

Williams hurt his elbow early in Week 17, but played through the injury that week. He said he “gritted through it and I paid the price later” by missing Week 18, but that time off wound up serving him well because he’s set to play against the Cowboys this weekend.
