We break down the 49ers and Rams final injury reports and how they will impact Sunday's game.
The 49ers and Rams each released their final injury report for Week 10, and there are not any real surprises. The 49ers injury report does contain nine players, but all are listed as probable and there is no reason at this point that any of them won't be active:
WR Michael Crabtree (illness)
LB Tavares Gooden (elbow)
RB Frank Gore (hand)
G Daniel Kilgore (concussion)
P Andy Lee (hand)
WR Mario Manningham (shoulder)
QB Alex Smith (right finger)
DT Will Tukuafu (wrist)
LB Patrick Willis (shoulder)
The only question mark in terms of active or inactive is Brandon Jacobs, and at this point I'm not sure I'd even call that a question mark. It would be a pretty big upset to see him active at this point in the season. As long as Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter are healthy and productive, all is well.
The biggest question mark for the Rams is wide receiver Danny Amendola. The Rams listed Amendola as questionable as he looks to complete his recovery from a shoulder injury. It sounds like Amendola is expected to play, which means more work for Carlos Rogers.
