This is the final Wednesday practice participation report of the season as far as the San Francisco 49ers are concerned. Unfortunately, a 2-13 record isn’t actually good enough to qualify for the playoffs with. Dang.
Fortunately, the 49ers have a lot of players who didn’t practice at times last week getting in some action. Cornerback Dontae Johnson, center Marcus Martin and left tackle Joe Staley all missed time last week, but all were there at least in a limited fashion on Wednesday.
Staley is the big name there. He missed this past game with his hamstring injury and though he wants to play in Week 17, I personally see no reason for it. Hamstring injuries are easy to aggravate and can be painful, but then again those injuries typically can’t sideline a player for an entire offseason so there’s no true amount of risk involved.
Both of defensive tackle Quinton Dial and running back Shaun Draughn were listed as full participants last week and it’s the same deal on Wednesday.
The 49ers will play the Seattle Seahawks in Week 17 to close out what has been an amazingly terrible season with almost nothing positive going for it. The 49ers have a slew of players on injured reserve and it sure would be nice if the 49ers could avoid adding anymore in Week 17.
Below is the full participation report from the 49ers.
