Witherspoon took hold of one of the outside starting corner spots during his rookie campaign in 2017, and he projects to start alongside Richard Sherman to begin the 2018 season. The 22-year-old recorded 32 tackles and two interceptions in 12 games last year, and he figures to build on those numbers with a definitive starting role in his sophomore season.
Witherspoon (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Witherspoon was limited in practice Wednesday after playing through a lingering knee injury last Sunday against the Titans. Barring any major setbacks, the cornerback should be ready for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Witherspoon (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans.
A limited practice participant throughout the week while battling an MCL sprain, Witherspoon was cleared to play after making it throughout pregame warmups without issue. Though he should see ample snaps Sunday, Witherspoon isn't really on the IDP radar after producing just one interception in nine games and no more than four tackles in any of those contests.
Witherspoon (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Witherspoon suffered an MCL sprain in last week's 26-16 victory over the Titans, but an encouraging MRI the next day offered hope he could play in Week 15. He subsequently logged limited practices all week and looks on track to be a true game-time decision Sunday. Should the cornerback ultimately sit out, look for K'Waun Williams to fill in across from Dontae Johnson.
Witherspoon suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's 26-16 victory over the Texans, but he may avoid any time off, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Witherspoon's MRI was "encouraging," according to coach Kyle Shanahan, who also avoided ruling him out for Sunday's game against the Titans. K'Waun Williams would presumably fill in at cornerback should Witherspoon ultimately have to sit out.
