49ers LT Trent Williams active for wild-card game at Cowboys
ARLINGTON, Texas -- San Francisco 49ers left tackle Trent Williams is active for a wild-card game against the Dallas Cowboys after missing the regular-season finale with an elbow injury.
The nine-time Pro Bowler returned to practice Thursday after missing the 27-24 overtime victory at the Los Angeles Rams that put the 49ers in the playoffs. Williams, an All-Pro for the first time this season, sustained the injury in a Week 17 victory over Houston.
There were no lingering questions about the active roster for the Cowboys. Linebacker Keanu Neal had already been declared out with chest and elbow injuries. Rookie safety Israel Mukuamu went on injured reserve with a hamstring issue.
San Francisco linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair (knee) is active after missing the last two games of the regular season. The 49ers have the top three linebackers active for the first time since Week 12.
Linebacker Marcell Harris (Achilles tendon) and safety Talanoa Hufanga (knee) are inactive after being listed as questionable. Both are 49ers backups.
The other inactives for San Francisco are DL Maurice Hurst (calf), OL Jaylon Moore, RB Trey Sermon, DB Deommodore Lenoir and CB Darqueze Dennard.
The Dallas inactives other than Neal are OL Matt Farniok, CB Nahshon Wright, CB Maurice Canady, NT Quinton Bohanna and WR Simi Fehoko.
