The San Francisco 49ers have dealt with numerous injuries this season, placing nine valuable starters or reserves on the PUP, NFI, short-term IR or full-season IR since the start of training camp. The list of notable injured players includes:

DT Tank Carradine - NFI (activated)
WR Michael Crabtree - PUP
CB Chris Culliver - IR
DT Quinton Dial - NFI (activated)
WR Mario Manningham - PUP
ILB Nick Moody - Short term IR
OLB Aldon Smith - NFI (activated)
NT Ian Williams - IR
CB Eric Wright - NFI

While that has been a significant issue, the 49ers have also dealt with numerous shorter-term injuries. The most prominent injuries in the press have been Ray McDonald's bicep tear and Glenn Dorsey's hamstring injury. However, as you can see below, the 49ers have dealt with a wide array of injuries this season.

I went back through every injury report through the first eight weeks of the season, and pulled out each player, their injury, how much they practiced in a given week, their final status, and then whether or not they were inactive. The first table is sorted by player name, the second spreadsheet is sorted by the given week.

Much like late last year, we once again see numerous offensive and defensive linemen dealing with shoulder injuries. Justin Smith has been listed with the injury since Week 3. He was not listed on the injury report the first two weeks, but then popped up with a shoulder issue.

At the start of training camp, Smith met with the media, and was asked about his injury. He said that basically he was as good as he was going to be. The team has given him the last three Wednesdays off, and I suspect we'll see something similar the rest of the way. He has reached a point in his career where a) he does not need as much practice as other players, and b) he is likely going to be dealing with various maladies as long as he continues playing no matter how much rest he gets. It seems like he'll be able to get back to 100 percent when he retires.

The 49ers are fairly guarded in the details surrounding injuries, so these tables are of only so much use. If you have thoughts on other ways to organize this data, I'm all ears!
