49ers-Bears injury report: Will we see a third tight end activated?

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears released their second practice participation report of the week. Thursday practice saw NaVorro Bowman and Michael Wilhoite return to practice. The rest of the report remained the same for the 49ers. Garrett Celek and Carlos Hyde are both likely to be inactive on Sunday. Any other inactives will be healthy scratches.

The team has until 1 p.m. PT on Saturday to promote one of their practice squad tight ends to the 53-man roster. The team can decide between Brian Leonhardt and Jamie Childers, if they were inclined to use a third tight end. The team has used fewer two tight end sets lately, so it is entirely possible the team will decide to just go with Vance McDonald and Blake Bell. My guess is they do end up promoting one of the two, but we won't find out for sure until Saturday.
