49ers-Browns injury report: Vance McDonald ruled out, Tramaine Brock, Aaron Lynch, Torrey Smith questionable

New, comments

Time to break down the 49ers and Browns final injury reports. Tramaine Brock is a surprise addition.

The San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns released their final injury reports for Week 14, and there are some notable names on both rosters that either will not play, or might not play. Vance McDonald has officially been ruled out with a concussion. He was unable to return to practice from the concussion protocol, and will not play on Sunday.

Aaron Lynch was in the concussion protocol as well, but was upgraded to limited in practice on Friday. If he is clear of concussion symptoms the rest of the weekend, he will be able to play on Sunday. He and Ahmad Brooks would likely start at outside linebacker, with Corey Lemonier and Eli Harold rotating in for some work as well.

The biggest change to the injury report is that Tramaine Brock was a late addition. He did not appear on the injury report on Wednesday or Thursday, but was listed as limited on the Friday report with a foot issue. The players have media availability after practice, so we'll see if there is any word from Brock on his injury.

Torrey Smith is dealing with some soreness, sitting out Thursday practice, but he is expected to play on Sunday after a limited workout to close out the week.

The Browns are dealing with a handful of their own injuries. Cornerbacks Justin Gilbert and Joe Haden, as well as wide receiver Andrew Hawkins are all out due to concussions. Leading wide receiver Travis Benjamin (shoulder) and tight end Gary Barnidge (ankle) are both listed as questionable. Benjamin missed Wednesday practice, and was limited Thursday and Friday. Barnidge was limited all three days. I suspect both play on Sunday.
