Colbert (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday in San Francisco
Colbert opened the week with back-to-back DNPs at practice, but he elevated to a limited participant at Friday's session. After playing all 71 defensive snaps and accruing five tackles last Sunday, he's slated to the same Week 2.
Colbert (hamstring) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Colbert, the team's starting free safety, seems to be nursing a hamstring issue. The injury's severity remains undisclosed, but expect an update on Colbert's health if he is unable to return to practice as the week continues.
The 24-year-old filled in for Jimmie Ward at free safety in the second half of the 2017 campaign, recording 31 tackles while starting the final eight games of the season. Ward has shifted back to corner at the beginning of camp, opening up a starting job for Colbert alongside Jaquiski Tartt. The latter figures to be the more desirable IDP option at strong safety, but Colbert could provide modest tackle totals with the occasional pick (he played cornerback in college) if he hangs on to a starting role through camp and the regular season.
Ward is expected to get some reps at corner during camp, a position the versatile defensive back has played multiple times in his brief career. If that plan sticks, Colbert appears to be the favorite to move into the vacated starting free safety spot on the depth chart. The 24-year-old took over at the position following Ward's placement on IR after Week 8 last season, finishing with 37 tackles and no interceptions. Colbert -- a converted corner in his own right -- wouldn't generate much IDP buzz considering his lack of tackling ability and auxiliary stats.
Colbert (shoulder) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Rams, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Colbert sustained the injury in last Sunday's win over the Jaguars and was a limited participant in practice this week, but was still able to avoid the questionable tag. The 24-year-old should have his usual role at starting safety for Sunday's season finale.
