49ers-Bengals final injury report: Torrey Smith, Aaron Lynch, Tramaine Brock all questionable

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers final injury report for Week 15 includes three significant question marks. We break them down.

The San Francisco 49ers and Cincinnati Bengals posted their final injury reports for Week 15, and there are some notable names to consider. We broke down the Bengals injury report here.

The 49ers will be without Alex Boone and Michael Wilhoite, which is not a surprise. Jim Tomsula has described both as week-to-week, but I don't expect either to return to the active roster this season. Marcus Martin handled left guard duties in place of Boone last week, and Gerald Hodges filled in for Wilhoite.

The questionable list is where things get interesting. Tramaine Brock, Aaron Lynch, and Torrey Smith are all listed as questionable Lynch was sporting the blue non-contact jersey (well, sort of), which means he is still in the concussion protocol. He wore it last week and indications were he would play against Cleveland, but the trainers were not satisfied with his progress over the weekend, and he was deactivated. I really have no idea whether or not he will play on Sunday.

Torrey Smith sat out Wednesday and Thursday practices, but was a limited participant on Friday. My guess is he will play, but will once again play fewer snaps than normal. Brock was a late addition to the injury report, added on Friday as limited with a hamstring injury. Hamstring injuries are always tough to figure out, especially when they are late additions to the injury report. We don't know how serious the injury is, so it is hard to speculate on his status for Sunday.
