49ers Week 18 injury report: Help could be on the way at WR

There weren’t any surprises on the 49ers’ Week 18 injury report. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said cornerback Jason Verrett suffered a season-ending shoulder injury, but Verrett was on the practice squad and not required to show up on the status report for Sunday’s game.

No surprises is good news for San Francisco since they already had as many as seven players expected to miss the game, including running back Christian McCaffrey.

The 49ers have six players ruled out and four others listed as questionable. Two of the questionable players are wide receivers aiming to come off IR. In fact, the team could have as many as three WRs come off the injury report to play in Sunday’s game.

Here’s the full injury report:

There weren’t any surprises here, which is a great sign for the 49ers. There’s some hope that all six will be ready to play in the team’s first playoff game.
