49ers Vs. Giants Injury Report: Ahmad Bradshaw Out, Ray McDonald TBD

We didn't get the Thursday injury report published last night during Thursday Night Football, so I thought I'd post the report today as there is some important information to pass along. The biggest news of the day was the confirmation from Adam Schefter that Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw will not be playing this Sunday due to his foot injury. It is not shocking information, but it is still noteworthy. Brandon Jacobs will get the start in his place with D.J. Ware and Da'Rell Scott backing him up. Next man up, next man down?

The other bit of news is that wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was upgraded from DNP to limited participation in practice. If he is a full participant later today, I would imagine he will play. If he is limited again today, it becomes a tougher game-time decision. Adding Nicks into the mix is a significant improvement for a receiving corps that would already be fairly solid without him. I am curious to see who Carlos Rogers covers when he is not in the slot position in the 49ers nickel defense.

On the 49ers side, Frank Gore and Ray McDonald remain the two most significant question marks. They were both limited once again in practice and it is hard to tell what kind of involvement they will have on Sunday. Gore has generally seemed pretty confident he will be able to play. I'm curious to see how many touches Kendall Hunter gets in the game.

As for McDonald, Vic Fangio indicated McDonald is making progress and thinks "he's ahead of where he might have been usually with a hamstring." I don't really know what that means for Sunday, but Ricky Jean Francois continues to take the snaps in practice.
