The San Francisco 49ers return to practice Wednesday afternoon, and they will welcome back several players to the practice field. Head coach Jim Tomsula met with the media and provided updates on a handful of players that have dealt with injuries over the last couple weeks.
Reggie Bush is still working through his calf strain, but feels "really good". The team will re-assess his status once they get through practice. He will spend some time with the trainers, but there was no specific word on what he will do in practice. My guess is we see him listed as a DNP, and the bigger decision comes with Thursday's practice.
Carlos Hyde, Bruce Ellington, Vance McDonald, and Blake Bell will all be practicing in some form or fashion. Some or all of this group will likely be listed as limited in Wednesday's session. Tomsula said he thinks all four will be available for Sunday's game.
suffered a concussion took a shot to the crown of his helmet in Week 2, and was evaluated for a concussion. He passed the in-game concussion tests. This question on his injury status relates to an earlier knee injury. He took a blow to the knee that looked really bad on instant replay. He returned to the game, but on Monday, Tomsula said he suffered a contusion. If you want to see the injury, here is some video. Hyde kept playing, but it looks a lot worse on replay.
Ellington dealt with an ankle injury last week that resulted in his Week 2 inactive status. He did some pre-game work on Sunday, but was unable to go. Ideally he is limited today and gets in full sessions Thursday and Friday.
McDonald suffered a knee injury, and Bell took a shot to the back. McDonald did not return to the game, which is what led to more snaps for Bell. Although Bell got up a little slow after the hit to the back, Bell was able to keep playing.
