49ers-Steelers injury report: Reggie Bush is lone figure

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers got their practice weeks going on Wednesday. They have had classroom work, but Wednesday provided the first participation reports. We break down what it means.

The San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers had their first on-field practice sessions of the week on Wednesday. The Steelers held a normal practice, while the 49ers had a walkthrough. We'll have more later today on the 49ers practice schedule. They will have full practices Thursday and Friday, but with Wednesday being a walkthrough, their portion of the injury report is projected instead of actual.

Reggie Bush is currently the only player on the practice participation report. I suppose it could change on Thursday if a player realizes something is up once he gets on the field, but for the time being, Bush is the only guy. Jim Tomsula has seemed optimistic about his calf, but the team is going to take their time getting him back so as to avoid aggravating it.

Odds seem pretty decent he sits out Sunday's game against the Steelers. If he is inactive, Mike Davis will be active. The question then is who handles No. 2 running back duties. My guess is Davis would be that guy as he is more experienced. Jarryd Hayne handled more running back snaps than I expected. The team removed him from return duties during the game, in large part because he had to handle running back duties. It was poor timing given the fumble earlier, but I don't think the team was benching him because of the fumble.
