Thomas had three solo tackles and his first sack of the season in Thursday's 34-3 win over Oakland.
Thomas has started seven of nine games this season but sees a limited snap count defensively, which is illustrated by his season total of 17 tackles (14 solo). The 22-year-old's limited role and inconsistent production when on the field makes him an unattractive option for IDP purposes.
Thomas suffered a shoulder injury during San Francisco's Week 4 loss to the Chargers, but has not been listed on the team's injury report this week. There's no reason to believe that Thomas is in any danger of missing Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Thomas suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's loss to the Chargers but is expected to be okay moving forward, Joe Fann of the team's official site reports.
Although the shoulder injury is not believed to be serious, Thomas' situation is something to monitor until he proves he's at 100 percent. Should the big man practice in full at any point this week it would likely simmer concerns.

Thomas suffered the head injury in the 49ers' first preseason game two weeks ago. The timely return puts the 22-year-old on track to begin the regular season in full capacity.

Thomas has been sidelined since Aug. 9 after suffering a head injury that turned out to be a concussion, but additional tests appear to have revealed enough progress to warrant him being an expected participant. It's good timing for his return, as the starters generally play their most significant snaps in the third preseason game.
