    10/07/15DEEzekiel AnsahShoulderQUESTIONABLELions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (groin) is listed as active Monday at Seattle, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Ansah missed practice Thursday but turned in limited showings both Friday and Saturday, forecasting an appearance in Week 4. Through three games, he's supplemented a team-best two sacks with 12 tackles (10 solo).

    10/07/15RBJoique BellAnkleQUESTIONABLELions running back Joique Bell (ankle) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice, according to MLive.com.

    Bell's absence on Monday night gave Ameer Abdullah unfettered access to touches out of the Lions' backfield, but the rookie could only muster 33 yards on the ground and two catches for 11 yards against the Seahawks' typically stout defense.

    Meanwhile, Theo Riddick took on a pass-catching role, turning five receptions into 31 yards. If Bell remains out of commission, the preceding breakdown of reps between Abdullah and Riddick will likely be replicated.

    (Updated 10/07/2015)
    10/07/15TEEric EbronKneeQUESTIONABLELions tight end Eric Ebron (knee) told ESPN he could be out up to three weeks.

    Ebron's chances of playing this week probably are not good, but it does not appear he will require surgery for his setback. He could return to action before the end of October.

    Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring), assuming he is healthy, and Timothy Wright will handle the tight end duties for the Lions until Ebron is able to return.

    (Updated 10/07/2015)
    10/07/15SJames IhedigboQuadricepsQUESTIONABLELions strong safety James Ihedigbo has reported to OTAs and will likely attend minicamp despite his stated desire for a new contract, the Detroit News is reporting.
    10/07/15LBDeAndre LevyHipPROBABLELions linebacker DeAndre Levy (hip) returned to practice Wednesday, The Detroit News reports.

    Levy was forced to sit out of the Lions' Week 4 Monday night contest against the Seahawks with the hip injury, but he returned to practice Wednesday. There is a chance he takes the field Week 5, as the winless Lions play the Cardinals at home.

    (Updated 10/07/2015)
    10/07/15LBTravis LewisAnkleQUESTIONABLEThe Lions placed linebacker Travis Lewis (quad) on injured reserve Saturday. The team replaced Lewis on the active roster with tight end Jordan Thompson, who was signed from the practice squad.
    10/07/15CBRashean MathisCalfQUESTIONABLELions cornerback Rashean Mathis is planning to retire after the two-year contract he signed in March expires, per the Detroit Free Press.
    10/07/15WRLance MooreAnklePROBABLELions veteran wide receiver Lance Moore will not play Thursday night against Washington in the team's second preseason game, ESPN has reported. He will return home after becoming a father.
    10/07/15DTHaloti NgataCalfQUESTIONABLELions defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was limited in practice Friday with a shoulder problem and is considered questionable for the Sunday game against Minnesota.
    10/07/15TEBrandon PettigrewHamstringQUESTIONABLELions tight end Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, The Detroit News reports.

    Wednesday marks Pettigrew's first practice since sustaining the hamstring injury Sept. 13, and he could be ready for the Lions' Week 5 matchup against the Cardinals.

    Fellow tight end Eric Ebron (knee) is also banged up and expected to sit out a couple weeks, which would likely promote Pettigrew to the starting spot for the time being. Tim Wright would also likely see more snaps in Ebron's absence.

    10/07/15LBNaVorro BowmanNot injury relatedQUESTIONABLE49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman recorded eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 17-3 loss to the Packers.

    Bowman has been fairly vanilla in 2015, failing to reach double-digit tackles in a single game this season. On a positive note, he didn't appear to be limited by the minor knee injury suffered last week.

    Bowman isn't playing at the level we were used to prior to his gruesome knee injury in the 2013 NFC Championship, but owners have to give him a bit more leash in case he is simply shaking off the rust.

    (Updated 10/05/2015)
    10/07/15LBAhmad BrooksNot injury related, shoulderQUESTIONABLE49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks will not be placed on the commissioner's exempt list and will open the season on the active roster, the team announced. Brooks was recently indicted on one count of sexual battery.
    10/07/15TEVernon DavisKneeQUESTIONABLE49ers tight end Vernon Davis (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

    After straining his knee in Week 3, Davis didn't practice once last week and was eventually deemed inactive Sunday versus the Packers. His return to practice is certainly a good sign, but two days remain to show that he's ready to return for Sunday Night Football against the Giants in New York. Because Vance McDonald also fit in a limited showing Wednesday, the 49ers could soon have its tight-end corps intact.

    (Updated 10/07/2015)
    10/07/15SL.J. McCrayKneeQUESTIONABLEAlong with linebacker Patrick Willis (toe), the 49ers listed Josh Johnson, Quinton Patton, Leon McFadden , Dan Skuta, L.J. McCray, and Dillon Farrell as inactive for Week 10 at New Orleans.
    10/07/15TEVance McDonaldChestQUESTIONABLEVernon Davis (knee) is inactive for the 49ers on Sunday against Green Bay. He had been designated as doubtful.

    Vance McDonald, Garrett Celek and Blake Bell are in line to handle the duties at that position, though none represent a high-percentage Fantasy play in Week 4.

    (Updated 10/04/2015)
    10/07/15WRQuinton PattonConcussionQUESTIONABLE49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton suffered a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Packers, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports.

    Patton was one of the few bright spots for the 49ers, catching both of his targets for 53 yards. If he misses any time, Bruce Ellington will likely take over as the No. 3 wide receiver in a poor offense.

    (Updated 10/05/2015)
    09/07/15WRDeAndre SmelterUndisclosedNFIThe 49ers waived 10 players on Monday. They were K Corey Acosta, LB Steve Beauharnais, CB Mylan Hicks, T Sean Hooey, WR Mario Hull, WR Chuck Jacobs, WR Nigel King, LB Shawn Lemon, FB Trey Millard and DL Lawrence Okoye.
    08/18/15WRJerome SimpsonSuspensionSUSPENDJerome Simpson, who is competing for the role as the 49ers' No. 3 wide receiver, has been suspended for the first six games of the season. The suspension is due to a July 2014 arrest and previous off-field incidents, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
