NFC Notes: Cardinals, 49ers, Rams, Seahawks



  • 49ers LT Trent Williams’ positive COVID-19 test last week means his status for Sunday is currently in doubt, especially since Williams is in a high-risk category as a cancer survivor.
  • Williams says that he currently feels ok and is expected to be fine, but his status will likely be closely monitored. (Dan Graziano)
  • 49ers designated RB Raheem Mostert and RB Jeff Wilson to return from injured reserve. (NFLTR)
  • 49ers signed S Chris Edwards to their active roster.
  • 49ers signed S Kai Nacua and WR Shawn Poindexter to their practice squad. 


Filling in for Rams LT Andrew Whitworth, Joseph Noteboom had a quiet night Monday against the Buccaneers in a 27-24 win. Considering how talented and aggressive the Tampa Bay defense is, that’s actually an accomplishment for Noteboom. 

“Joe did great,” Rams QB Jared Goff said via the Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue. “Joe did really well. That’s a really tough defensive line. It’s one of the best defensive lines in the league. For him to come in and do what he did … on a Monday Night Football game against a couple of good pass-rushers, and play the way he did, was tremendous.”

  • Per ESPN’s David Newton, Panthers WR Curtis Samuel would be a strong scheme fit with the Rams. Samuel is slated to be an unrestricted free agent in 2021. 


  • Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said the hope is TE Greg Olsen can return from a torn plantar fascia in four to six weeks. (Michael-Shawn Dugar)
  • Seahawks seventh-round rookie Stephen Sullivan had sports hernia surgery and will move back to tight end when he returns, per Carroll. He had been shifted to defensive end. (Curtis Crabtree)
  • Carroll isn’t sure if DT Bryan Mone will be able to make it back in 2020, as he’s still in a boot from his ankle injury. (Dugar)
  • Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny won’t return this week to practice but Carroll is hopeful he can practice next week. (Bob Condotta)
  • Seahawks RB Bo Scarbrough will have surgery after suffering a torn hamstring. (Condotta)
