    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/28/16WRCody LatimerKneePROBABLELatimer (knee) suffered a minor sprain during Saturday's preseason game according to initial tests, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

    Latimer appears to have avoided any kind of major injury, and should be ready for Week 1 against the Panthers. The former second-round pick will likely begin the regular season as the No. 3 option in the receiving corps, while Bennie Fowler (elbow) could earn that spot upon his return from injury.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/25/16TEGarrett GrahamShoulderPROBABLEGraham (shoulder) isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, Jeff Legwold of ESPN reports.

    A shoulder injury has kept Graham on the sideline for each outing of his first exhibition season as a Bronco. With Jeff Heuerman (hamstring) also on the pine, Virgil Green has emerged as the clear-cut No. 1 tight end in Denver.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/24/16TEManasseh GarnerAbdomenPROBABLEGarner was waived by the Broncos on Thursday after undergoing an appendectomy on Wednesday, Mike Kils of 9News reports.

    Garner was competing for a spot at the bottom of the depth chart for the Broncos and his surgery couldn't have come at a worse time. It can take up to a month to recover from an appendectomy, which would be enough to keep the undrafted rookie out nearly all of camp, and is likely the reason Denver waived him.

    (Updated 07/28/2016)
    08/23/16QBTrevor SiemianShoulderPROBABLESiemian will be the Broncos' starter to begin the season the Broncos' official site reports.

    The decision hardly comes as a surprise given the ineffectiveness of Mark Sanchez and inexperience of rookie first-rounder Paxton Lynch. Siemian has completed 27 of 43 passes for 285 yards, a touchdown and two picks in three preseason games, including two starts. Those numbers are hardly awe-inspiring, so Siemian will likely have to continue to improve in order to fend-off a mid-season switch to Lynch.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/23/16LBDeMarcus WareUndisclosedPROBABLEWare (undisclosed) practiced in half-speed team drills Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9news reports.

    The Broncos looked like their old selves Wednesday with the returns of both Aqib Talib and Ware. While the quarterback dilemma is likely to linger on all season long, having Ware back on the field is a huge boost, regardless of form. In just 11 games last season, the 34-year-old registered 7.5 sacks to compliment 25 combined tackles. Ware is an unquestionable leader of Denver's defense, and the mere sight of him on the practice field is likely to lift team spirits.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    08/17/16TEJeff HeuermanHamstringPROBABLEHeuerman (hamstring) isn't expected to suit up for Saturday's preseason game versus the Rams, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

    After tearing his ACL in May of 2015, hamstring troubles continue to plague Heuerman in his first go-around at training camp. With offseason pickup Garrett Graham (shoulder) also on the pine, Virgil Green has emerged as the clear-cut No. 1 tight end in Denver.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/17/16DBShiloh KeoSuspensionSUSPENDKeo has been suspended two games for a violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

    The suspension stems from a February arrest for driving under the influence. Keo was probably already on the roster bubble, and a two-game absence to start the season won't help his case to make the team.

    (Updated 08/12/2016)
    08/15/16DLVance WalkerKneeOUTWalker has an ACL injury that will cause him to miss the entire 2016 season, Mike Klis of The Denver Post reports.

    Walker was carted off the field during Monday's practice, and an MRI confirmed the worst case scenario. The veteran defensive lineman was projected to backup Derek Wolfe on the left side of the line this season. Calvin Heurtelou now figures to slide into that role.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/13/16WRBennie FowlerElbowQUESTIONABLEFowler, who didn't practice Saturday, is dealing with a fracture in his right elbow and will miss a few weeks according to coach Gary Kubiak, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.

    Fowler's Week 1 status is now in jeopardy given the timetable to return from his fractured elbow. Cody Latimer figures to slot in as the No. 3 option at receiver with Fowler sidelined, while Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders continue to lead the way.

    (Updated 08/13/2016)
    08/10/16DBRyan MurphyHamstringQUESTIONABLEThe Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.
    08/09/16DBTaurean NixonUndisclosedPROBABLENixon did not practice on Tuesday for undisclosed reasons.

    Head coach Gary Kubiak would only admit that Nixon had suffered "a little knick" during Monday's session. Thus, the severity or location of Nixon's injury is unknown, but Kubiak's lack of concern bodes well for his his health going forward.

    (Updated 08/09/2016)
    08/08/16DBAqib TalibLower LegPROBABLETalib (leg) returned to practice Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9news reports.

    Talib's roller coaster offseason seems to finally be approaching a halt. His leg is near 100 percent, and after a report earlier this week indicating that Talib is likely to play on Saturday, there is reason to be optimistic in Denver. The Broncos have a plethora of stability issues at the moment, so seeing Talib back on the practice field Wednesday has to be reassuring for coach Gary Kubiak and company.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    08/04/16DBChris HarrisHamstringPROBABLEHarris (hamstring) participated in walk throughs after being held out of padded practice, Troy Renck of 7News Denver reports.

    It was originally reported that Harris was being held out of practice due to his hamstring injury but it appears the injury isn't too serious since the corner got on the field for walk throughs. It's unclear how long he'll remain out but he should be expected back in full any day.

    (Updated 08/04/2016)
    07/30/16DLAdam GotsisKneePROBABLEGotsis (knee) divulged his knee is not yet 100 percent ready to resume practicing, ABC's Troy Renck reports.

    Gotsis had torn his ACL in 2015 during his final season at Georgia Tech, but although he was Denver's 2016 second-round selection, he will still need to get on the practice field to earn an early-season role during his rookie campaign. When healthy, he will compete with Jared Crick, Vance Walker and Kenny Anunike, among others, for a role in replacing the departed Malik Jackson along the Broncos' defensive line.

    (Updated 07/31/2016)
    07/30/16TEJohn PhillipsAnklePROBABLEPhillips (ankle) will not participate in practice Sunday, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports.

    Not a guarantee to make the team's final roster, the ankle injury is a tough blow for Phillips, who appeared to have hurt it during Saturday morning's practice. Phillips will be evaluated again Monday prior to practice, but currently remains without a concrete timetable for a return. With guys like Virgil Green, Jeff Heuerman and Garrett Graham ahead of him on the depth chart, it could be tough for Phillips to secure a roster spot, barring a spectacular showing during the preseason.

    (Updated 07/31/2016)
    05/26/16LBBrandon MarshallFingerPROBABLEThe Broncos and Marshall (finger) agreed to terms of a four-year contract extension Tuesday, Andrew Mason of the team's official site reports.

    Marshall shuttled between the practice squad and active roster with both the Jaguars and Broncos in his first two seasons, seeing action in just six total games between 2012 and 2013. However, he took advantage of an injury to Danny Trevathan at the outset of the 2014 campaign and has been a regular at inside linebacker for the Broncos in the meantime. In addition to back-to-back 100-tackle seasons, Marshall has tacked on 3.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and two interceptions in 30 regular season games, while playing a key role in Denver's run to the Super Bowl 50 title.

    San Francisco Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/30/16RBShaun DraughnLegPROBABLEDraughn (ribs/back) wore a blue jersey at Sunday's practice to signal that he's exempt from being hit, The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Draughn hasn't played in either of the 49ers' past two preseason games due to a ribs injury he suffered during a practice scrimmage with the Broncos. While that condition requires the protection associated with a blue practice jersey, starting running back Carlos Hyde's concussion suffered Friday against Green Bay makes protecting Draughn's health even more important. At the moment, he projects as the Niners' No. 2 running back, so if Hyde is unavailable, he represents the team's next option at the position, where the alternatives don't appear too attractive. It's also worth noting that Draughn was involved with returning punts during Sunday's session.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/29/16WRDeAndre SmelterHamstringPROBABLESmelter (hamstring) was seen in full pads at Monday's practice, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

    Smelter -- who has missed all three preseason games with a hamstring injury -- returned to practice and could make an appearance in the 49ers' final preseason game against the Chargers on Thursday. The 2015 fourth-round pick was recovering from a torn ACL and had a great opportunity to carve out a significant role during training camp, but a hamstring injury derailed that opportunity. It isn't inconceivable for Smelter to have a strong showing in Thursday's preseason finale and rocket up the depth chart given how depleted the 49ers' receiving corps is. A more likely scenario would be Smelter making the team as a backup and earning playing time later in the season as he gets his feet wet with his first NFL action.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/27/16LBNaVorro BowmanRestPROBABLEBowman is in street clothes on the sideline for Friday's matchup with the Packers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN reports.

    Bowman was not on the inactive list for this contest, but it does not appear as though he will participate. There has been no injury reported, so the team is likely resting their veteran linebacker in order to ensure his health heading into Week 1.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/27/16DLQuinton DialKneeQUESTIONABLEDial injured his knee during Friday's preseason loss to the Packers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    The 49ers are awaiting word on an MRI of Dial's knee, after which a timetable for a return can be charted. In 15 games last season, the defensive tackle notched 59 tackles (32 solo) and 2.5 sacks.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16WRBruce EllingtonHamstringQUESTIONABLEEllington (ankle) won't play in Saturday's preseason game at Denver, the 49ers' official site reports.

    With an ankle sprain in tow, Ellington will be an observer rather than participant in San Francisco's second exhibition outing. His absence should give the likes of Jerome Simpson and DeAndrew White additional targets to work with Saturday.

    (Updated 08/20/2016)
    08/27/16RBCarlos HydeConcussionQUESTIONABLEHyde suffered a concussion in the first half of Saturday's preseason loss to Green Bay, ESPN reports.

    Hyde had four carries for 30 yards, including a 27-yard run, before departing. Hyde looks fully healthy after left foot surgery that he underwent prior to the end of the 2015 season. However, the concussion could put his status for the start of the regular season in question.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/26/16DLTony Jerod-EddieChestPROBABLEJerod-Eddie exited Saturday's preseason game with an apparent chest injury, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jerod-Eddie went down in the first quarter and did not return to the game. With both Arik Armstead (shoulder) and DeForest Buckner (leg) sitting out, he was getting reps with the 49ers' top defensive unit. Jerod-Eddie is currently competing for a backup defensive end job.

    (Updated 08/21/2016)
    08/23/16WRBryce TreggsKneeQUESTIONABLETreggs (knee) is inactive for Friday's matchup with the Packers.

    Treggs is currently considered week-to-week due to a sprained MCL, thus rendering this inactive unsurprising. He is currently competing to make the team's final roster.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/21/16LBNick BelloreKneeQUESTIONABLEBellore (knee) was diagnosed with a knee sprain Monday, Matt Maiocco of csnbayarea.com reports.

    On the bright side, Bellore's injury does not appear serious enough to require surgery. On the other hand, the 49ers have no timetable for his return as of right now. Bellore currently presides as one of San Francisco's top reserve linebackers.

    (Updated 08/22/2016)
    08/21/16DLDeForest BucknerUndisclosedPROBABLEBuckner was held out of the 49ers second preseason game, Saturday against the Broncos, due to a soft tissue issue on his lower body, Nick Wagoner of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

    Buckner's absence was announced late on Saturday, and came as a surprise as he hadn't missed practice with the issue. The team didn't go beyond saying that the injury was tissue in his lower body, making it hard to gauge the severity of the injury and set a timetable for the rookie defensive end. It's unclear at this time if he'll be able to practice right away or if he'll be out for a longer stretch. Look for Demetrius Cherry to see some extra reps as long as Buckner is out.

    (Updated 08/21/2016)
    08/11/16DLArik ArmsteadShoulderPROBABLEArmstead (shoulder) returned to practice this week after missing the team's first two preseason games, Matt Maiocco reports.

    After a somewhat disappointing rookie campaign one year ago, the 49ers remain confident that Armstead is headed in the right direction. The 21-year-old has shown signs of growth in both the maturity and production departments, and projects to help anchor San Francisco's defensive line in 2016. His return to the practice field Wednesday suggests that he will be ready to lead the charge in Week 1.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    07/30/16DLIan WilliamsNot Injury RelatedOUTWilliams was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    This move was made to make room on the roster for offensive lineman Anthony Davis who was reinstated by the league from retirement Saturday. It remains to be seen when Williams will play again.

    (Updated 07/30/2016)
    07/29/16LBAaron LynchSuspensionSUSPENDLynch has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

    Lynch slid to the fifth round of the 2014 Draft amid character concerns, but developed into of the league's best young outside linebackers by totaling 12.5 sacks over his first two seasons. Nonetheless, Lynch has now incurred his first NFL off-field slip-up, and will miss the first quarter of the regular season as a consequence. With Lynch suspended until San Francisco's Week 5 game against the Cardinals, Eli Harold and Corey Lemonier are candidates to start opposite Ahmad Brooks in the meantime.

    (Updated 07/15/2016)
    05/16/16DBWill RedmondKneeQUESTIONABLEThe 49ers selected Redmond (knee) in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 68th overall.

    Redmond likely would have been a second-round pick and could have even pushed for the first round if he hadn't torn his ACL during the 2015 season. This therefore looks like a potential bargain for a 49ers team that lacks proven options at corner.

    (Updated 04/29/2016)
    02/17/16DLGlenn DorseyKneeQUESTIONABLEDorsey (knee) was in full pads taking part in individual drills Monday, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

    Dorsey has missed the 49ers' first three preseason games while rehabbing from a torn ACL. His participation in practice bodes well for his availability in Thursday's preseason finale against the Chargers. With Quinton Dial (knee) going down to injury last week, Dorsey could potentially start at nose tackle in Week 1 if his knee proves to be healthy.
