Jake Locker practices, Glenn Dorsey sits out Thursday practice sessions

The San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans posted their second practice participation reports of the week, and we have a couple adjustments for the 49ers. Alex Boone, Ray McDonald and Justin Smith all made their way back to practice in limited form on Thursday. Glenn Dorsey sat out practice for the second straight day, and it seems more and more likely that Dorsey will not be playing this Sunday.

The other notable name on the injury report was linebacker Ahmad Brooks. He did not participate in practice today, and it sounds like he is dealing with some kind of personal matter. All indications are that he will re-join the team tomorrow and travel to Nashville.

On the Titans side of the report, there were no significant changes, but it is worth noting that quarterback Jake Locker was once again able to participate in practice. From practice reports, it sounds like Locker is able to throw fine, but he is wearing a brace on his left knee, and is moving with a noticeable limp. They're saying he could play on Sunday, but it sounds more like gamesmanship at this point. I would be surprised if Locker played Sunday.
