familiar chant of beat l a as the faithful sent off the forty-niners to socal for sunday's nfc championship game. >> welcome into red and gold zone playoff edition. in less than 48 hours, the forty-niners will take on the la rams in the nfc championship game. >> nearly halfway through the season, this team was 3 in 5 and many believe they wouldn't make the playoffs. now the forty-niners are just one win away from the super bowl. so what do they need to do to get the job done? let's check in with kron. 4 sports reporter kate rooney. she joins us now live from sofi stadium. beautiful. so fy stadium. kate, how are the forty-niners looking, though, and the injuries of concern? >> yeah, of course. are a huge piece of the puzzle when it comes to being able to field a team important football game like the nfc championship
10:46 pm
game. fortunately, we've got a pretty good report out of forty-niners practice at santa clara earlier today running back elijah mitchell cornerback ambry thomas quarterback jimmy garoppolo are all full participants in today's practice. so those are a few of the guys we had our eye on. but here's the big one that still hangs in the balance left tackle. trent williams was officially listed as questionable for today's game. that's a really big deal because trent williams is a pro bowl left tackle. he's been dealing with an ankle sprain and he's certainly someone that they want in the game. jimmy garoppolo in particular let it slip. that trend might have a high ankle sprain coach shanahan decline to state. whether high or low high is not the one you want. and jimmy is of particular concern because trends, the guy protecting his blindside. it's not just that, though he's widely considered not only the best left tackle in the game, one of the best players in the game. >> period. that's what his teammates and coaches have said throughout the season. and here's what shanahan had to say today about whether or
10:47 pm
not they think williams has the chance to actually play on sunday. >> it's going to be like it was 3 weeks ago. i feel the same way that it beginning the he came out for a walk through the day and turns and that he's he was last time too which i mean, i i believe says can do everything you can to play. and so i'll be surprised if he doesn't. but i was surprised last time. so it's has also surprises able to finish the gamers green bay so hopefully his mindset will be how his body reacts on sunday and we know to help us a lot. but if not, we'll deal with it. >> so that last time he was referring to is the rams game in week williams missed that one with an elbow injury. now he's dealing with the ankle injury that he sustained in the game against green bay. so hopefully we'll see him on the field on sunday is likely to be a game time decision, though. they're also waiting on the status update of jeff wilson junior the running back. he's listed as questionable as well. kylen.
10:48 pm
>> all right. so not too bad. on the injury front, mostly healthy, kate, we like to hear that now. we saw the video of the team heading out earlier tonight. typically they wouldn't leave until saturday for such a short trip. what's the story behind leaving today? kate? >> well, this team has gotten really used to being on the road. this is their 4th straight road game and the of the players got together after last week's game and decided, you know what we kind of like having that extra day away from home helps us lock in to the game a little bit. so they approach kyle shanahan early in the week and asked him if they could leave on friday. so it's a matter of fact, they should be landing any minute if they haven't already. they're going to come right here. go straight to bed. wake up tomorrow. they can spend the whole day here in los angeles without any distractions. i had to call family and being at home a distraction. but it kind of candy, when you're preparing for game is important. is the nfc championship game. >> and so that's the reason the forty-niners really wanted to come here tonight so they can have a full 24 hours here in la tomorrow, just to get ready and think about nothing else. but the game kylen.
10:49 pm
>> okay. that's good. so they should be mentally focused now when it comes to that game k the forty-niners offense struggled their game against green bay, not scoring one offensive. touchdown. what do they need to do to put up numbers and find success against la? i hate to make it simple as this because football is such a complicated game and this game is rea ly going to come down to the forty-niners run game. that's ultimately the way that they've been able to beat the rams to previous time this season. it's the way that they've been able to have success against all the teams. >> that they've ultimately defeated this season. green bay, little bit of a different beast because of the weather there. clearly no one was performing well for an offensive perspective, including green bay. they were really struggling to break off any explosive runs there. here's the thing, though, even though the rams are a little bit undersized up front, they do have one of the best defensive tackles in the league. that's, of course, aaron. donald. and they have been really good against the run all season. they were 6th in the league in run defense this season right now in the
10:50 pm
postseason in the 2 games they played. they are the best team against the run. they've only allowed 56 point o yards per game against their 2 opponents so far. but last time they played the forty-niners fared pretty well against them over 150 yards rushing deebo. samuel had a rushing touchdown and that's what the forty-niners are going to try to do again. kyle shanahan has said it plenty of times. we want to run the ball. at least 30 times per game. and when they do the statistics and the win column shows kylen that they can be really, really successful so that they're tried and true formula. and that's what they're going to stick to on sunday. absolutely. you seen any fans hanging around any red out there in la so far. >> yeah, i was keeping my eyes peeled on the flight down today. there were definitely a handful of 40 niner fans on my flight and the airport. but what really impressed me was when i got to the rental agency to pick up my rental car, a couple of agents there were just in 40 niner gear. so looks like.
10:51 pm
>> we don't even need the faithful to come down from the bay area. there are a lot of fans who currently reside right here in los angeles and are not shy about letting their 40 niner pride, even as the hometown team is about to host this rival. so i think there's going to be a big pep rally tomorrow here. it's a place called tom's watch bar. that's really going to get the forty-niners fans riled up. and i'm definitely expecting to see a big sea of red at sofi stadium on sunday. >> some sounds like it's going to be a fun atmosphere. kate rooney down at sofi stadium. thanks so much, kate. appreciate it. we're not done here on red and gold zone. we have some final thoughts from the niners opponent as they wrap up their preparations. wrap up their preparations. that's coming up after this. mmm. hey jack, how'd you get this spicy cluck sandwich to have the perfect amount of spice? i call it, jack's spice squad. who's in the squad?

10:55 pm
know, get be ready for the next time. next time you but at the same time, like you're saying there's some things that you don't even want to try again because they didn't work or maybe was bad timing of the call, whatever it is. there's a bunch of variables, but you definitely it. take both into account. >> also, both coaches very familiar with each other to we should mention the rams got in their final practice on friday. they have insisted all week that this sunday won't be a repeat of the previous 2 matchups this season or in fact, the last 6 in the series overall, which were all losses for la rams head coach sean mcvay said he's confident as long as his players can execute and play with the proper mindset. >> if you say your preparation is in alignment with feeling really confident the players ability to execute a their and also go play with acquited mind. you know, that's that's what our guys have done. you know, they're put themselves in a position in work isn't done. we still have some things that going to be able to tighten up. but we know what a great challenge is going to be. but i do have
10:56 pm
tremendous confidence in this team and our players in the leaders that we have in that locker room and they've got a great job of putting in a position to go play the quiet mind on sunday. >> here we go. forty-niners with a chance to advance to an 8th super bowl which you put them in sole possession of second place in super bowl appearances. game time is 03:30pm, on sunday at so-fi stadium. also, this would be the second time in just 3 years that the forty-niners make the super bowl. you can't forget about that 2019 classic. well, that's all we've got for red and gold zone. the special edition. be sure to join us tomorrow night. we will have much more ahead of the big game on sunday. have a great night. everyone.
