On the injury report, he has been listed as questionable. Despite the 10-time Pro Bowler not being fully recovered from the injury, many in the NFL world suggested that he was all set to return to the field. However, to everyone’s disappointment, Williams couldn’t make a comeback.

In the Week 6 game between the 49ers and the Cleveland Browns, Williams suffered an injury. Initially, the injury was classified as a low ankle sprain. However, since Week 6, Williams has not set foot on the field. On Wednesday, Williams did not participate in the practice session, but on Thursday and Friday, he had limited participation in the practice session. Rumors of Williams returning to the team became stronger when ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Williams is playing against the Jaguars.

The presence of Williams in the team could have provided a significant boost to the 49ers, as they have lost their last two games in the absence of Williams. His absence has caused a lot of damage to the 49ers and it is evident from the fact that their average yards per play dropped to 3.9. One reason Williams did not play in this game might be that he is not 100 percent fit, and returning to the field in this condition could have had a long-term impact on his health.

The Jaguars boast a strong defense as well as offense, but tonight it seems like nothing is working for them. They endured a five-play stretch where they allowed the 49ers gains of 9, 29, 13, 21, and 9 yards.
