The San Francisco 49ers and Jacksonville Jaguars released their first practice participation reports, and we've got some good news on the 49ers side of things. Strong safety Donte Whitner was listed as a full participant in practice, while free safety Eric Reid does not appear on the injury report at all. Naturally, this is a great indication for their availability this Sunday.
Jon Baldwin remains on the injury list with an illness that showed up last week. He was joined by Glenn Dorsey, Ray McDonald and Justin Smith as DNPs. I suspect all four will play, although we saw Dorsey was limited last week against the Titans. The 49ers have a bye after this week, so it would make sense to sit Dorsey on Sunday, and get him as much time to rest as possible.
On the Jaguars side of things, Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts sat out practice, but both are expected to play on Sunday. Blaine Gabbert was a full participant, but the Jaguars have said Chad Henne will get the start against the 49ers.
