The San Francisco 49ers left tackle Trent Williams is expected to be activated in time to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Listed as questionable, Williams returned to practice on Thursday and Friday on a limited basis.

Williams suffered a right ankle sprain during the Week 6 19-17 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Although 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that the player is not dealing with a high ankle sprain, the injury cannot be considered a low sprain due to the left tackle’s history of injuries to the right ankle.

Jaylon Moore, who played during the last two games in Williams’ stead, is expected to start should the injured left tackle not recover sufficiently in time to play against the Jaguars.
