Wilson agreed Wednesday with the 49ers on a new contract, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. The 26-year-old running back first latched on with the 49ers as an undrafted rookie in 2018, and he'll now stick in San Francisco for a fifth straight season. During his run with the team, Wilson has made nine starts -- including four in 2021 -- despite opening the season third or fourth on the team's depth chart most years. Heading into the 2022 season, Wilson will likely be behind Elijah Mitchell, at the very least, and he could also face additional competition for backup work if the Niners bring in another veteran and/or a draft pick. For now, the team has Mitchell, Wilson, Trey Sermon and JaMycal Hasty, with each of the four seemingly healthy after dealing with various injuries throughout 2021.
Wilson (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Wilson managed just one limited practice this past week due to a low-ankle sprain suffered in the 49ers' divisional-round win at Green Bay. With a mostly healthy backfield otherwise, San Francisco will keep Wilson in street clothes Sunday. Aside from lead back Elijah Mitchell, the trio of JaMycal Hasty, Trey Sermon and Trenton Cannon are on hand for RB and special teams reps that linger.
Wilson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at the Rams, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. After missing the first two practices of the week, Wilson at least was present at Friday's session as a limited participant, per Matt Barrows of The Athletic. Earlier this week, coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that Wilson is dealing with a low-ankle sprain suffered during the opening kickoff of the 49ers' divisional-round win at Green Bay. Ultimately, Wilson's status won't be confirmed until 90 minutes before Sunday's 6:30 p.m. ET kickoff.
Wilson (ankle) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Wilson was expected to be limited Wednesday, but with back-to-back DNPs so far this week, he appears to be trending in the wrong direction. Per Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News, Wilson even departed Thursday's session and went indoors after team stretches. In the end, Friday's practice report may provide a sense of whether or not Wilson has a chance to play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game at the Rams.
Wilson (ankle) was held out of practice Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Per Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, head coach Kyle Shanahan labeled Wilson as a limited participant on the 49ers' pre-practice report, but the running back ended up logging no activity to begin the week. Wilson is tending to a low-ankle sprain that he sustained on the opening kickoff of the team's divisional-round win in Green Bay. He'll have two more chances to put himself in a position for his typical special-teams role ahead of Sunday's NFC Championship Game at the Rams.
