    11/29/15TEOwen DanielsKNEEPROBABLEDaniels (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    Limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday, Daniels returned to full participation Friday. He should be fine for Sunday's game, but with Vernon Davis now in the mix at tight end, targets may be a bit harder to come by. However, Daniels still managed to log 56 snaps in a Week 11 win over the Bears.

    11/29/15TEVirgil GreenFINGERPROBABLEGreen was targeted once in Sunday's win over Chicago, recording a nine-yard reception.

    Following a three-catch performance in Week 8, Green has been targeted just once in each of the past three contests. In Brock Osweiler's first game under center, head coach Gary Kubiak implemented his multi-tight end scheme to full effect, with 12 of 27 passes directed at tight ends. Eleven of those targets, however, went to Owen Daniels and Vernon Davis. Green saw the field just 26 times as compared to Daniels, 59, and Davis, 50, and is unlikely to benefit much from Denver's adjusted offense.

    11/29/15QBPeyton ManningFOOTOUTNFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested Thursday that Manning (foot) is at least three weeks away from playing again.

    When explaining the basis of the estimate, Rapoport noted Thursday that Manning is "going to be in a cast for up to 10 days, then he's got another week of rehab, and then he's got to try to get on the field." Based on that, Rapoport suggests that "the date to circle on your calendar is Dec. 20 against the Steelers. That's the most realistic date that Manning could be back, but no one has guaranteed to me that he'll definitely be back on the field, especially if Brock Osweiler is playing well." In any case, the Broncos have already acknowledged that Manning -- who continues to recover from a plantar fascia tear -- is expected to miss at least the next two games, with Osweiler slated to fill in for him at QB in the meantime.

    11/29/15WREmmanuel SandersANKLE, FINGERPROBABLESanders, who is dealing with ankle and finger injuries, is listed as probable for Sunday night's game against the Patriots, the Denver Post reports.

    Given the probable designation and the fact that Sanders practiced fully Friday, the wideout looks like a go for Sunday's 8:30 ET contest, in the absence of any unexpected pre-game setbacks.

    On the plus side, Ware, who aggravated a previous back injury on Nov. 8, said Friday that he hoped he could practice by next Wednesday.

    11/29/15DTArik ArmsteadSHOULDERPROBABLEThe 49ers signed first-round draft pick Arik Armstead , the team announced on Friday. 
    11/29/15WRAnquan BoldinHAMSTRINGPROBABLEBoldin (hamstring) hauled in five of seven targets for 93 yards in Sunday's 29-13 loss at Seattle.

    It was a brutal matchup for Boldin and he didn't appear to be 100 percent, looking gimpy on some routes. He also spent a little time on the bench in the first half, while the 49ers had the ball, warming up his tender hamstring. However, he made a number of tough grabs in traffic, and seemed to have a solid rapport with Blaine Gabbert, who did a nice job in the loss, completing 22 of 34 passes for 264 yards and a touchdown. Assuming Boldin made it out of Sunday's game without any setback, he'll have another tough matchup in Week 12 against the Cardinals.

    11/29/15LBNaVorro BowmanSHOULDER, FINGERPROBABLEBowman (shoulder) had a relatively quiet game by his standards, recording nine tackles (four solo) in the 29-13 loss to the Seahawks.

    Bowman continues to pop up on the injury report for a minor shoulder injury, but it didn't seem to affect the veteran linebacker as he was on the field for all 78 of the team's defensive snaps. With the opposition running the ball 44 times, you would think Bowman would have notched more than nine tackles, but Thomas Rawls was getting into the secondary consistently which did not benefit Bowman. A matchup against the Cardinals' potent air attack looms next week, so the tackle totals could be held in check for Bowman yet again.

    11/29/15LBAhmad BrooksCONCUSSION, TOEQUESTIONABLEBrooks (personal) returned to the field Thursday, recording five tackles (two solo) and a pair of sacks in the loss to Seattle.

    Brooks had missed last week's contest to attend the funeral of his sister. He returned Thursday and the extra rest seemed to have given the veteran linebacker a boost. While this was a monster game, it has to be taken with a grain of salt, as the Seattle offensive line is, well, offensive.

    11/29/15RBCarlos HydeFOOTOUTHyde (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Hyde still hasn't played since Week 7 and is no lock to suit up again this season. Shaun Draughn will continue to lead the San Francisco backfield, with Kendall Gaskins and Travaris Cadet working in reserve. Draughn played nearly all of the offensive snaps in Week 11 against the Seahawks.

    11/29/15CBKeith ReaserANKLEPROBABLEAntoine Bethea is set to start for the 49ers this season at strong safety with Eric Reid entrenched at free safety. But the former doesn't know who their secondary mates will be and he's expecting quite a battle.
    11/29/15SJaquiski TarttKNEEPROBABLETartt finished with eight tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

    Tartt has been starting at strong safety ever since Antoine Bethea (shoulder) was shut down for the season. He has been averaging 6.0 tackles in the those three starts. He doesn't seem like the type of player that will haul in too many interceptions, but his size and athleticism give him a little upside in IDP leagues for tackles, forced fumbles, and the occasional sack.

    11/16/15WRDeAndre SmelterUndisclosedNFISmelter (knee) is slated to practice this week, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Smelter will remain on the 49ers' Reserve/Non-Football Injury list for now, as the team has a three-week window in which to evaluate whether or not to officially add the wideout to the team's 53-man active roster.
