The San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals released their final injury reports for Week 6, and the good news is Ray McDonald was back at practice. McDonald suffered a partially torn bicep tendon last Sunday, and sat out Wednesday and Thursday's practices. On Friday, he was a limited participant. I doubt we will see many full participation practices the rest of the season from McDonald, but it's good to see him getting at least some team work in.
Vernon Davis has upgraded to probable, after a couple weeks as questionable. Davis' status for Sunday was not in doubt, but it's nice to see him improving. Davis is a key component no matter what, but as long as a second wide receiver does not step up, it is even more so.
Nnamdi Asomugha remains on the list as questionable with his knee injury. Vic Fangio indicated we could see Nnamdi inactive even once he's healthy, given Tramaine Brock's play. This is not surprising, but still worth noting. And given the number of players due back the NFI and PUP lists, his roster spot is likely rather tenuous at the moment.
