49ers left tackle Trent Williams no longer is in a walking boot, but his sprained right ankle kept him out of practice all week. The 49ers list the All-Pro as questionable to play in the NFC Championship Game.

Williams will be a game-time decision, coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday.

“It’s going to be like it was three weeks ago,” Shanahan said. “I feel the same way as I did at the beginning of the week. He came out for walk-through today. Trent’s adamant that he’s going. He was last time, too, which I believe Trent when he says that. He’s going to do everything he can to play. So I will be surprised if he doesn’t, but I was surprised last time. I was also surprised he was able to finish the game vs. Green Bay. So hopefully his mindset will be how his body reacts on Sunday. We know it’ll help us a lot, but if not, we’ll deal with it.

Williams played all but one snap in Saturday’s victory over the Packers.

Shanahan would not share whether Williams’ ankle injury was a high-ankle sprain, but quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo did.

“Those high ankles are never a fun thing,” Garoppolo said. “I know that from experience.”

Colton McKivitz started in place of Williams in the Jan. 9 win over the Rams when Williams was a game-time scratch with an elbow injury.

Running back Jeff Wilson (ankle) also has a questionable designation for Sunday’s game against the Rams. He was limited in Friday’s practice.

  1. If truly high ankle, Von Miller might be licking his chops. Probably is even if low ankle.

  2. All pro, when he’s playing. Be interesting if he gets mad when they cut his dead money if and when he’s injured, and he wants to know why they forced him to play hurt

  3. Will last maybe ten plays giving up two sacks as injuries are such a downer at this time of year being so close to the big one n ya can barely go.
