SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Colin Kaepernick will have all his weapons against Seattle. Anquan Boldin, Carlos Hyde and Reggie Bush will play as the 49ers enter their short week healthy against their division rival.
Meanwhile, Boldin's first cousin Sunday morning was a victim of a fatal police shooting, as detailed by the San Francisco Chronicle.
The 13-year veteran said a defender landed on his leg during his 51-yard catch in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Ravens. He was a limited participant in Tuesday's abbreviated practice after missing practice Monday. Boldin hasn't missed a game since the regular season finale of Baltimore's Super Bowl season of 2012.
In fact, the entire 49ers 53-man roster practiced Tuesday, including Hyde, Bush and receiver/return specialist Bruce Ellington. Bush and Ellington will play after missing the Ravens game with calf strains.
Hyde's foot injury has lingered since Oct. 11's game in New York, but will not keep out Thursday, despite Hyde going to the ground in pain during a second-half carry where he wasn't touched by a defender.
That list includes receiver Jerome Simpson, who will not play despite being eligible following his six-game suspension. The 49ers requested a roster exemption for Simpson, allowing him to practice without being elevated to the 53-man roster. The 49ers receivers on the 53-man roster are Boldin, Torrey Smith, Quinton Patton, Bruce Ellington and DeAndrew White.
Former Australian Rugby League Star Jarryd Hayne will be inactive after for the first time in his NFL career after fumbling during a punt return in Sunday's win over the Ravens. It was Hayne's second fumble of the season, with the first coming on his first ever punt return attempt in the season opener against the Vikings.
Linebacker Gerald Hodges will make his 49ers debut after coming to San Francisco in a trade with Minnesota Oct. 6. Hodges will back up starters NaVorro Bowman and Michael Wilhoite, while the 49ers also have Shayne Skov and Nick Bellore available.
Right tackle Erik Pears popped up on the injury report with a back injury, while fellow offensive linemen Joe Staley (knee) and Alex Boone (shoulder) were limited participants with their respective injuries. Both Boone and Staley's injuries have been noted for the last few weeks, but they haven't been apparent during games. All three players will play.
For Seattle, they will be without former 49ers linebacker Nick Moody, who is dealing with an ankle injury. Moody joined Seattle's practice Sept. 14 after being among San Francisco's final cuts, and was elevated to the Seahawks roster Oct. 14. San Francisco drafted Moody with a sixth-round pick in the 2013 draft.
Moody became the latest former 49er to play for the Seahawks, including defensive lineman Demarcus Dobbs, receiver Ricardo Lockette, fullback/defensive lineman Will Tukuafu, and former quarterback-turned-receiver B.J. Daniels.
Running back Marshawn Lynch, who missed two games with a hamstring injury, will also start. Lynch has 882 yards rushing with six rushing touchdowns and two receiving touchdowns in 10 regular season games against San Francisco.
