Gilliam (concussion) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.
We're closing in on a month since Gilliam sustained the concussion and things appear to be moving rather slowly. Given the nature of head injuries in today's medical climate, it's wise for both Gilliam's personal health and the team to wait until all symptoms have subsided. Although the Niners have eased Gilliam back into the mix, albeit in a limited fashion, it's reasonable to suspect he'll miss Sunday's game given the lengthy absence and the fact that he's not quite at 100 percent just yet.
Gilliam (concussion) returned to practice Tuesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The return marks the end of a three-week long absence for Gilliam. Despite missing almost a month of the critical evaluation period during the preseason, the 27-year-old possesses enough experience that it could ultimately help save him from the perils of roster cutdowns.
Gilliam remains in concussion protocol and will be re-evaluated Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Gilliam has been going through protocol since suffering the concussion since the team's preseason opener against the Cowboys. An update should come Tuesday on whether or not Gilliam is cleared.
Gilliam sustained a concussion during Thursday's preseason game against the Cowboys, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Gilliam was able to play only seven snaps in the preseason opener before exiting with concussion symptoms. The 27-year-old will have to clear the league's concussion protocol before returning to the field for the 49ers.
Gilliam did not practice Saturday due to an elbow injury, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
The elbow issue is not believed to be serious and should not keep Gilliam on the sideline for an extended period of time. The expectation is that Gilliam will be back in time for next week's activities.
