49ers-Steelers injury report: Reggie Bush out, Bruce Ellington questionable

New, comments

We break down the San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers injury reports heading into Week 2.

Fooch's update - So, there's this:

The San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers released their final injury reports, and the 49ers have two players listed. Reggie Bush is listed as out, and Bruce Ellington is listed as questionable. The Steelers listed cornerback Cortez Allen as questionable, and everybody else as probable.

The Bush news is not a surprise. Jim Tomsula announced earlier on Friday that Bush would not travel with the team. He is receiving treatment on his calf, and I would imagine the team hopes he can be ready for Week 3. Ellington showed up on the injury report after an ankle issue cropped up in practice. The 49ers had a walkthrough on Wednesday, so unless the injury happened Thursday, Ellington might have just not realized the severity of the issue until he hit the practice field on Thursday. Whatever the case, he is questionable.

Brandon Boykin was limited on Wednesday and a DNP on Thursday, but was a full participant on Friday. It sounds like he should be in good shape for Sunday, but the question is how many snaps he'll get. He only worked special teams last week, after the Steelers dealt a fifth round pick to acquire him. Considering the secondary's poor showing against the New England Patriots, I have to think they give him some snaps in the secondary.
