The San Francisco 49ers return to practice Wednesday morning at 10:15 a.m. PT, and team PR has provided an updated injury report. Missed practices are never a good thing, but there is some good news to pull from this.
Eric Reid (ankle) and George Kittle (hamstring) were both listed as day-to-day on Monday, but they have been upgraded. Both players will take part in individual drills, but not team drills. That is a solid sign they are making progress and their injuries are not serious.
Keith Reaser (knee) and Jaquiski Tartt (ribs) will not participate in drills, and are still listed as day-to-day. JP Flynn (knee) remains out indefinitely. There is one addition to the list. Eli Harold suffered a head injury and is listed as day-to-day.
Tartt’s continued absence means Lorenzo Jerome will get first team free safety snaps, with Chanceller James coming on as the second string free safety. Vinnie Sunseri will likely continue taking second string strong safety snaps. There is no word if Adrian Colbert or Don Jones, or anybody else for that matter will get safety work. But getting Jerome in with the 1s will be big for his evaluation. He’s had solid success dating back to the offseason workout program, but it has regularly been further down the depth chart. Getting him in there with the 1s means a big step up in the challenge.
