Rams-49ers injury report: Arik Armstead and Javon Kinlaw miss practice again




 

The 49ers have concerns over their top two interior defensive line players heading into their Monday Night Football matchup with the Rams.

Arik Armstead, who missed the 11-10 defeat to the Broncos in Week 3 because of a foot injury, missed Thursday practice and was a DNP again on Friday.

Worryingly, fellow defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw - who missed much of last season with a knee injury - was also absent from his second straight practice because of a knee issue.

Kevin Givens, who had a sack in an impressive game against Denver, will be expected to start again versus Los Angeles if Armstead or Kinlaw miss out. The 49ers will also likely elevate Akeem Spence from the practice squad after he played 21 snaps against Denver.

Safety Tarvarius Moore was limited in practice on Thursday but was a DNP on Friday with a hamstring concern.

Running back Tyrion Davis-Price (ankle), wide receiver Danny Gray (hip) and tight ends Ross Dwelley (rib) and Tyler Kroft (knee) all once again missed practice, along with Trent Williams and Azeez Al-Shaair. The 49ers are hopeful of keeping All-Pro left tackle Williams off injured reserve after he suffered a high ankle sprain while linebacker Al-Shaair sustained an MCL sprain in Denver.

Versatile offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill, who has not played this season, was limited for the second straight day with a hamstring injury, pointing to him potentially being active for the first time in 2022 for a game in which offensive line depth could be critical in Williams' absence.

Christian McCaffrey returned to practice Thursday after dealing with some ''knee irritation'' during last week's win over New Orleans. Having McCaffrey in the lineup is crucial Sunday after Elijah Mitchell went down with a knee injury last week that is expected to sideline him for the rest of the regular season.
