SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The 49ers appear to be getting healthier for Thursday night's game against the Seattle Seahawks. The entire roster practiced Tuesday.
Notable starters Carlos Hyde and Anquan Boldin were both dealing with injuries this week, but participated in Tuesday's light practice, two days ahead of Thursday night's game. They are listed as questionable.
Hyde has been dealing with a left foot injury over the last few weeks while Boldin sustained a hamstring injury in Sunday's win over the Baltimore Ravens.
Hyde was questionable heading into Sunday's win, but ended up playing before leaving the game momentarily after putting too much pressure on the foot during a run in the second half.
"His foot’s sore," 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula said of his running back this week. "I don’t want to put a medical label on it, but he’s sore in there. I guess it’s a bruise. He’s got an orthotic and they are working through that way and then we’re just managing it with the pounding in practice.”
Right tackle Erik Pears popped up on the injury report this week with a back injury, despite playing all 59 offensive snaps in Sunday's game. Should Pears not play, it's likely rookie seventh-round pick Trent Brown would make his NFL debut. Brown has been on the active 46-man roster in all six games this season.
Running back Reggie Bush was tabbed probable with a calf injury aggravated in Oct. 11's loss to the New York Giants. Bush initially sustained the injury in the first quarter of the season opening win over the Vikings, and has been in and out of the lineup since. If he plays Thursday, it will mark his his fourth game this season after missing Sunday's win.
To this point, Bush has just four rushes for seven yards after signing to be Hyde's primary back up. Without Bush, the 49ers have struggled to find a consistent replacement to spell Hyde, who has 104 rushing attempts and 11 catches on the season.
Receiver and return specialist Bruce Ellington is also listed is probable after missing last week's game with a calf injury sustained in practice. The last time Ellington played, he notched 39 yards on two receptions against New York, but those wound up being his only two snaps on the night.
For Seattle, former 49ers linebacker Nick Moody will not play due to an ankle injury. Moody was a surprise cut when San Francisco trimmed its roster to 53 before the start of the regular season. Cornerback Richard Sherman is dealing with an ankle injury, but is probable to play. The same for linebacker Bobby Wagner, who is dealing with a pectoral injury.
