What to expect from tonight’s Colts vs. 49ers game?

There are still questions regarding the San Francisco starters ahead of Sunday Night Football tonight. Let’s clarify some things.

Jimmy Garoppolo returns for the 49ers.

After missing Week 5 with a calf injury, QB Jimmy Garoppolo is back under cross. However, his replacement, rookie QB Trey Lance, is not expected to see the pitch in any capacity. According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, Lance will remain on the sidelines in Week 7 after spraining his left knee on his first start. While the rookie will miss this game, Shanahan expects Lance to be ready in Week 8.

In addition, defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw is still hampered by a lingering knee problem this season. Shanahan said, “It’s a big concern this year,” and the development of the second-year TD came to a halt. In addition, offensive tackle Trent Williams did not participate in practice this weekend, but it seems like a move out of caution rather than necessity. Williams started all five games for San Francisco and has been listed as a day-to-day with a sprained ankle.

The Colts’ chances depend on the decisions made during the game.

While the 49ers are hampered in a few positions, the Colts are also suffering as Sunday Night Football approaches. Wide receiver TY Hilton missed another practice but said he felt 50-50 if he played tonight. Cornerback Rock Ya-Sin continues to miss training with an ankle injury and looks unlikely to play in Week 7.

The good news for Indianapolis is linebacker Darius Leonard and defensive ends Kwity Paye and Tyquan Lewis have improved in training throughout the week. If all three continue to progress, we should see them on the field in defense of the Colts against the 49ers.

Both of these teams are mid-level, but the Colts have gotten some things right. After a heartbreaking overtime loss to the Ravens in Week 5, Indianapolis beat the Texans 31-3. The defense has forced many turnovers over the past three games, and that shouldn’t change with Garoppolo leaving for the first time in two weeks. The San Francisco defense will start off strong, but Indianapolis RB Jonathan Taylor and quarterback Carson Wentz will wear them out and claim a victory.
