For the second straight week, LaMichael James is listed as questionable. He did not participate in drills Friday, so the odds of him playing are pretty minimal. He has not played or practiced since the 49ers preseason finale on August 29. The 49ers host the Indianapolis Colts next week, and then travel to St. Louis on a short week for Week 4 Thursday Night Football. I would be surprised if he was active Week 3, but Week 4 would seem a good target date.
The Seahawks report is pretty straight forward as well. Brandon Browner is listed as doubtful and seems highly unlikely to play. He sat out practice all week, dealing with a hamstring injury. This would actually mark the second straight 49ers-Seahawks game he will have missed, having sat out with a suspension Week 16 last year.
Cliff Avril is listed as probable. He was limited on Wednesday, but a full participant on Thursday and Friday. I have to say, I am kind of excited to see Avril line up against Anthony Davis. Avril and Davis have some history, with Davis making some comments about Avril after the 49ers beat the Lions in 2011. I would think this would all be in the past, but you never know given how Davis can get fired up.
