49ers-Rams injury report: Todd Gurley, Quinton Dial, Jaquiski Tartt sit out practices

New, comments

There are some important names on the injury report this week. We break down the notable ones for both sides.

The San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams released their Thursday practice participation reports, and there are a couple notable names that will need to be tracked into Friday. Quinton Dial and Jaquiski Tartt both missed practice for the 49ers, and Todd Gurley missed practice for the Rams.

Dial missed his second straight day of practice, while Tartt was downgraded from limited on Wednesday. If Dial is unable to go on Sunday, it will be interesting to see what happens with the 49ers defensive line. Ian Williams and Mike Purcell would likely start, and the third spot would probably end up as some kind of rotation. Tony Jerod-Eddie and Arik Armstead are the two candidates for base defense work.

Tartt is dealing with a knee issue, and his status is also tough to figure out for Sunday. If he's unable to go on Sunday, Jimmie Ward would seem to be the best candidate to start next to Eric Reid. Ward played safety in college to go along with his nickel work. That would create an additional domino for nickel back work.

Gurley seemed to suffer the foot injury late against the Seahawks. He played the whole game, but was a little bit gimpy late. If he is limited on Friday, I suspect he will play, but given that the Rams have nothing to play for, it would be a bit foolish to push Gurley. Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham would likely split the bulk of the carries if Gurley did not play.
