49ers-Falcons injury report: Alex Boone downgraded to DNP on Thursday

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers are banged up heading into Week 9. Alex Boone's status appears to be in question.

The San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons each released their Thursday practice participation reports, and the 49ers remain a banged up team. The most notable issue might be the downgrading of Alex Boone. He was limited on Wednesday due to a knee issue, and was downgraded to a DNP on Thursday. He might be back fine on Friday, but his status is in question. Jim Tomsula will meet with the media on Friday, and I'd imagine there will be a question about it.

Kenneth Acker sat out practice again, as he is going through the concussion protocol. Garrett Celek returned to practice in limited form, and since he is also in the protocol, that would seem to indicate Acker remains a step behind. Keith Reaser and Dontae Johnson would be competing for the start if Acker cannot go. Reaser missed practice on Wednesday due to a family matter, and was back limited on Thursday with a heavily taped ankle.

Anquan Boldin and Carlos Hyde both were out again. Odds seem slim for either to play given that the team has a bye next week. If they are not 100 percent, the team might as well give them that extra time to get at least close to full health.
