The 49ers will return to practice on Thursday afternoon. Head coach Kyle Shanahan provided the pre-practice injury report. Defensive tackles Arik Armstead and Javon Hargrave will not practice today. Here’s the list of players who are out:
DT Arik Armstead (foot/knee)
DT Javon Hargrave (hamstring)
RB Elijah Mitchell (knee)
TE Ross Dwelley (ankle)
LB Oren Burks (knee)
WR Jauan Jennings (concussion protocol)
Defensive end Clelin Ferrell will be limited with an ankle injury.
We’ll find out in a few hours when the official injury report comes out for Thursday, but Shanahan didn’t mention cornerback Deommodore Lenoir’s rib injury or right guard Spencer Burford’s knee injury. Both starters likely returned to practice.
With Mitchell out, The 49ers promoted running back Jeremy McNichols to the active roster from the practice squad. That’s not a good sign for Mitchell’s availability against the Baltimore Ravens.
An extra day of rest may benefit the 49ers. Having at least one of Armstead or Hargrave on the field will take a lot off the plate of an already thin group at defensive tackle.
