49ers-Seahawks Thursday Injury Report

Fooch's Update: Was just notified that Brandon Mebane did not practice today either.  If he sits out this Sunday (no guarantee obviously), that would certainly be a plus for the 49ers offense.

The only big changes today for the 49ers is that Marcus Hudson and Justin Smith were full participants in practice.  Over on the Seahawks side of things Houshmandzadeh continues to sit out practice, so we'll see if there's any kind of rust on him this Sunday, assuming he plays.  I'm guessing he'll be out there, but you never know.  Also, Deion Branch got in some practice time today, so that could bode well for him this weekend.  He sat out against the Rams but did not practice all week, so for him this is an improvement.

One interesting note for the 49ers is that Brandon Jones was a full participant in practice again.  He was expected to miss all of September, but it looks like he'll be back much sooner than that.  Jimmy Raye was asked after practice about Jones's availability for Sunday:

He started back to practice. He looked like a guy who has missed six weeks of practice to me. He’s got to get back up to speed and get in some shape physically. Be in position to be able to interval run routes at full speed, and that will take whatever conditioning level he’s at now, that will take a little bit of time. And, when he’s ready and we think he can go full speed, then we’ll involve him in what we’re doing.

That sounds to me like Jones will be inactive this Sunday.  If they did activate him over Jason Hill that would definitely tell us even more about Hill's status with the team.
