49ers-Bengals injury report: Torrey Smith misses second day of practice

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals released their second practice participation report of Week 15, and the 49ers have some bad and good news. The bad news is that wide receiver Torrey Smith missed another practice. Smith missed practice last Thursday, and was limited on Friday before being listed as questionable. He played in Week 14, but got fewer snaps than normal. This week, he has missed two straight days of practice, so his status is up in the air.

The good news is that Aaron Lynch and Vance McDonald were both at practice once again. McDonald improved from limited to full participant and did not wear a blue non-contact jersey. Lynch still had the blue jersey, and was listed as limited. McDonald seems all but certain of playing on Sunday. It seems likely as well that Lynch will play, but we'll see what Friday's final injury report brings.

On the Bengals side of things, Tyler Eifert (concussion) and George Iloka (groin) both sat out a second straight day of practice. If Eifert does not practice on Friday, it seems likely that he will not play on Sunday. As for Iloka, given the uncertainty of groin injuries, and the potential for aggravation, if he does not practice on Friday, it would not surprise me if he sits on Sunday.
