Richard Sherman, hamstrung in the 49ers' 48-46 win over the Saints in Week 14, missed out on Sunday's 29-22 loss to the Falcons in Santa Clara. Before that dud, the corner, who was officially a non-participant in practice on Thursday, said the team was playing things safe, foreshadowing a return against the Rams.

Listen to your team news NOW.

The Rams arrive at Levi's on Dec. 21 for the penultimate game of the regular season. Earlier in the day, tight end Garrett Celek was placed on IR, the third Niner to earn that designation in as many days.
