Latest on 49ers-Packers Injuries

Thursday Update

The Thursday injury report for the Packers contained no new additions from Wednesday.

Left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) was upgraded from a DNP to limited Wednesday, but was downgraded to DNP Thursday. The change suggests he may have suffered a setback. The All-Pro tackle played in Week 18, which was his first game all season due to this knee injury. He is listed as questionable for this week’s matchup.

Wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) was the only other DNP on the report — his second missed practice in a row. He is doubtful to play this week. Tight end Marcedes Lewis (NIR) was added to Wednesday’s report as a DNP and was upgraded to a full participant today.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (toe), running back Aaron Jones (knee), right tackle Billy Turner (knee) and linebacker De’Vondre Campbell (elbow) practiced in full for the third day in a row. Cornerback Jaire Alexander (shoulder) was the only limited player on today’s report due to a shoulder injury. He will carry the questionable designation heading into the weekend.

The Thursday injury report for the 49ers also contained no new additions from Tuesday or Wednesday.

The two upgrades on the report were defensive end Nick Bosa (concussion) and linebacker Marcell Harris (Achilles). Both were changed from limited to full participants day-over-day. Bosa had been in the concussion protocol and will carry the questionable tag heading into the game.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (right shoulder, right thumb), linebackers Azeez Al-Shaair (knee), Dre Greenlaw (groin) and Fred Warner (ankle), safety Talanoa Hufanga (knee) and running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) were all full participants for the second day in a row. Defensive end Jordan Willis (ankle) and cornerback Ambry Thomas (knee) were limited again and are both questionable to play this week.

Wednesday Update

The Wednesday injury report for the Packers contained one addition from Tuesday. Tight end Marcedes Lewis (NIR) was added to the report and was one of two non-participants due to non-injury reasons. Wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) was downgraded to a non-participant after practicing in a limited fashion on Tuesday.

Left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) — who was upgraded from a DNP to limited — was the only other change on the report. Cornerback Jaire Alexander (shoulder) remained limited and quarterback Aaron Rodgers (toe), right tackle Billy Turner (knee), running back Aaron Jones (knee) and linebacker De’Vondre Campbell (elbow) were all full participants for the second day in a row.

The Wednesday injury report for the 49ers contained no new additions from Tuesday. Defensive ends Nick Bosa (concussion) and Jordan Willis (ankle) were the report’s two DNPs Tuesday; both participated on a limited basis today. Bosa had been in the concussion protocol and Willis suffered a high-ankle sprain in the second quarter of last week’s game.

Six players were upgraded from limited to full participants: quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb/shoulder), linebackers Azeez Al-Shaair (knee), Dre Greenlaw (groin) and Fred Warner (ankle), running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) and safety Talanoa Hufanga (knee). Garoppolo has been dealing with a torn UCL in his throwing hand for weeks and suffered a sprained right (throwing) shoulder during the second quarter of last week’s win over the Cowboys. He is expected to play this week.

Linebacker Marcell Harris (Achilles) and cornerback Ambry Thomas (knee) were limited once again.

Tuesday Update

The Tuesday injury report for the Packers listed seven players total: five offensive players and two defensive players.

Headlining the report is quarterback Aaron Rodgers (toe), who has been dealing with a lingering toe injury for many weeks. He was a full participant in today’s practice and is expected to start come Saturday.

The other Green Bay offensive players listed were running back Aaron Jones (knee), left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee), right tackle Billy Turner (knee) and wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back).

Baktiari was the lone non-participant today, though it was apparently a planned day off. The All-Pro tackle played in Week 18, which was his first game all season due to this knee injury. Jones is a frequent flyer on this report with a knee injury and was a full participant in practice. He missed two games this season.

The Green Bay defensive players listed were cornerback Jaire Alexander (shoulder) and linebacker De’Vondre Campbell (elbow). Campbell was a full participant after missing Week 18 with an elbow injury.

Alexander was limited today while dealing with a shoulder injury he suffered Week 4 and has not played since. Head coach Matt LaFleur expressed on Tuesday that he is, “hopeful,” Alexander and linebacker Za’Darius Smith (back), who was missing from the injury report. He underwent surgery earlier this season.

The Tuesday injury report for the 49ers listed nine players total: two offensive players and seven defensive players.

Headlining the report is quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb/shoulder), who has been dealing with a torn UCL in his throwing hand for weeks. Garoppolo also suffered a sprained right (throwing) shoulder during the second quarter of last week’s win over the Cowboys. He was able to finish the game and completed 16 of 25 attempts for 172 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception. Head coach Kyle Shanahan described the sprain as “slight” and expects Garoppolo — who practiced in a limited fashion on Tuesday — to play this week.

The only other San Francisco offensive player listed was running back Elijah Mitchell (knee), who was limited with a knee injury that previously sidelined him for three games. He has been listed on the injury report frequently of late, but did play in Weeks 17 and 18, as well as last week against Dallas, against which he rushed 27 times for 96 yards and a touchdown.

The San Francisco defensive players listed were defensive ends Nick Bosa (concussion) and Jordan Willis (ankle), cornerback Ambry Thomas (knee) and linebackers Azeez Al-Shaair (knee), Marcell Harris (Achilles) and Dre Greenlaw (groin).

Everyone was limited except for Bosa, who remains in the concussion protocol, and Willis, who suffered a high-ankle sprain in the second quarter of last week’s game, but was able to return later on. Bosa is expected to clear the protocol by Saturday. Harris, Al-Shaair and Greenlaw were on the injury report last week, though Harris was the only one to miss the game (his second in a row). Al-Shaair missed Week 18, but played in the wild-card round. Greenlaw underwent groin surgery earlier this season, but played in each of the last two games.

Note: As of the time of publication, the 49ers’ official injury report was not available. As such, we referred to 49ers beat reporter Cam Inman’s tweet regarding the team’s Tuesday practice.
