49ers shut down LT Trent Williams with knee issue

Trent Williams is being shut down for the rest of the week by the San Francisco 49ers after the highest-paid offensive tackle in the NFL needed fluid drained from around his ailing knee.

Williams, 33, is set to be evaluated early next week, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Thursday.

Williams was an unrestricted free agent in the offseason but re-signed with the 49ers. The six-year deal worth up to $138.1 million reportedly included a $30.1 million signing bonus and $55.1 million guaranteed.

The eight-time Pro Bowl selection was acquired by the 49ers from the Washington Football Team after sitting out the entire 2019 season in what Williams said was a health-related contract situation.

He played 14 games for the 49ers last season and has played in 134 games (133 starts) in his career.

Shanahan also said wide receiver Jalen Hurd will join Williams on the sideline for the week because he’s fighting knee tendinitis related to recovery from his torn ACL.
