The San Francisco 49ers have one practice under their belts for Week 15, and right tackle Trent Brown remains uncertain for Sunday. Brown sat out practice with his shoulder injury. Last week, he sat out Wednesday’s practice, and then was limited for Thursday and Friday before being inactive on Sunday.
If Brown is unable to play, Zane Beadles would appear to be the front-runner to start again at right tackle. He struggled against Jadeveon Clowney, but Kyle Shanahan was comfortable with things given that Beadles was called on in a pinch.
George Kittle is dealing with an ankle issue, but was a full participant. Shanahan said at his Wednesday press conference that one reason Garrett Celek has gotten more snaps than Kittle lately is the rookie has been pretty banged up. That coupled with Celek’s growing comfort in the offense is why we’ve seen some changes at tight end.
