49ers-Broncos injury report: Tramaine Brock, Anthony Davis get in second straight practice

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos released their second injury reports of the week. We take a look at who sat and who practiced on Thursday.

The San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos released their Thursday practice participation reports, and I decided to use a new format. Thanks to Mile High Report for a helpful format that hopefully makes it easier to track how the week progresses.

The 49ers got another practice session out of cornerback Tramaine Brock. He had a second straight day of limited work, as he looks to get back on the field following a Week 1 turf toe injury. Brock said his big toe was a little sore after the Wednesday practice, but he was "going to push through it this week to get the soreness out and be ready for Sunday." He was listed as out last week, but likely will find himself listed as questionable, and a potential pre-game decision.

Jimmie Ward, Patrick Willis and Mike Iupati all sat out practice again. We discussed Iupati earlier today. While he was a bit of a surprise to sit out, Ward and Willis are not surprising. Although Jim Harbaugh said the team dodged bullets with them, both seem likely to sit on Sunday. The 49ers have a bye the following week, so it makes sense to let them get back closer to 100 percent for the second half of the season.

Anthony Davis conducted his second straight practice, again listed as a limited participant. I still think like Brock he ends up sitting out Sunday, but he is getting in some work, so we'll see. The primary reason I see them sitting is that bye week seemingly makes it easy to get them two more full weeks to get back to where they need to be. But maybe the 49ers figure they'll have the time to recuperate after a game in which they probably will not be 100 percent. We'll see.
