The San Francisco 49ers released their latest practice participation report, and there is a mix of good and bad news. The good news is that defensive tackle D.J. Jones was upgraded from limited to full participation. Additionally, Reuben Foster and Eric Reid were once again able to practice, albeit in limited fashion. The bad news is that fullback Kyle Juszczyk missed his second straight practice with a back injury.
Juszczyk suffered the injury this past Sunday, and has missed the first two practices of the week. The 49ers have one more practice on Friday before they depart for the east coast. If Juszczyk does not practice again on Friday, my guess is he would be listed as doubtful or out for Sunday’s game. He has not been prominently featured in the passing game (minus the shovel pass touchdown), but he has been a big factor as a blocker in the run game. This is not ideal for a run game that has shown some signs of life at times.
