The 49ers returned to practice today, which means we have our first practice participation info. The final injury report does not come out until Friday, but this starts to give us some idea of what is going on with the injured players. The 49ers headed into this week with Brandon Jacobs and Ted Ginn Jr. missing last week's game, and Patrick Willis and Isaac Sopoaga leaving Sunday's game with injuries (ankle and knee, respectively).
We are getting positive news about Jacobs, Ginn and Willis as it sounds like all three were at practice. Sopoaga appears to remain sidelined, so we'll see how that develops this week. What I did find interested was the way things were worded by each of the beat-writers.
Brandon Jacobs, Ted Ginn were on hand for the start of practice; Isaac Sopoaga was not.
NT Isaac Sopoaga (left knee) is not practicing. Patrick Willis, Ted Ginn and Brandon Jacobs are in full pads at 49ers practice.
49ers practice report: DT Isaac Sopoaga (left knee) not participating but WR Ginn, RB Jacobs, LB Willis are
The 49ers do not allow media in for the entirety of practice, so it is possible Jacobs, Ginn and Willis will all be listed as limited. We'll know more in a little bit, but I find the wording between the three interesting.
