49ers escape playoff game vs. Seahawks in good health

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

There were several injury scares throughout the match. In the end, however, the San Francisco 49ers escaped their 41-23 Wild Card playoff victory against the Seattle Seahawks in relatively good health.

San Francisco entered the game with just two players out due to injuries. They were quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (foot) and cornerback Ambry Thomas (ankle).

Coach Kyle Shanahan gave an injury update in the game and named two players. However, none of the injuries were significant.

Wide receiver Jauan Jennings suffered an ankle injury but returned to the game. Defender Samson Ebukam also suffered an ankle injury. He did not return to the game. However, Shanahan stated that the linebacker could have returned if the outcome of the game was in question at the end of the action.

Next weekend, the 49ers will host the next highest seed from the Wild Card round. This could be the Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Dallas Cowboys.
