02/07/18DBDon JonesKnee - ACLQUESTIONABLEJones signed a two-year contract with the 49ers on Friday.

Jones is among the best gunners in the league and led the Texans with 11 special teams tackles in 2016, despite playing in just nine games. Given the barren nature of the 49ers' secondary, he could conceivably carve out a role on defense this upcoming season.

02/05/18WRVictor BoldenAnkleQUESTIONABLEThe 49ers placed Bolden (ankle) on injured reserve Wednesday.

Bolden exited Sunday's win over the Texans with the ankle injury, which was apparently severe enough to keep him out of action for the final three games of the regular season. The undrafted rookie has acted as the team's primary kickoff returner this season, totaling 396 yards on 19 runbacks.

02/05/18WRAaron BurbridgeHamstringQUESTIONABLEBurbridge (hamstring) was moved to injured reserve Saturday, Cam Inman of the Mercury News reports.

Burbridge injured his hamstring early on in training camp and is now set to miss the entire year. He's unlikely to come off injured reserve unless he agrees to an injury settlement.

02/05/18WRPierre GarconNeckQUESTIONABLEGarcon (neck) is expected to be ready for the start of the 49ers' offseason program in mid-April, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Despite having underwhelming quarterbacks in Brian Hoyer and C.J. Beathard throwing to him in the first half of the season, Garcon was easily the team's most productive wideout with 40 catches for 500 yards through eight games before hitting injured reserve with a non-displaced neck fracture. Since he only needed eight weeks to recover from the injury, Garcon should enter 2018 with no health concerns and an even brighter fantasy outlook. The San Francisco offense blossomed after Jimmy Garoppolo stepped in as the team's starting quarterback for the final five games, raising the fantasy ceilings of all the team's pass catchers heading into the upcoming campaign. Look for Garcon to reclaim a starting role at wideout opposite Marquise Goodwin (concussion), who racked up 29 catches for 384 yards as the 49ers' No. 1 receiver in Garoppolo's starts.

02/05/18TECole HikutiniKneeQUESTIONABLEHikutini will be placed on injured reserve this week after suffering an MCL sprain in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.

The team's third-string tight end will miss the remainder of the 2017 season following the injury designation. Given his place on the roster, there's no guarantee he'll stick around for the 2018 campaign which figures to have a fair amount of turnover in San Francisco.

02/05/18DBAsa JacksonHamstringQUESTIONABLEJackson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Jackson played just one defensive snap this season, as he was relegated mainly to special teams duties, so his departure shouldn't affect fantasy owners. The 49ers replaced Jackson's roster vacancy with the signing of 32-year-old cornerback Leon Hall.

02/05/18DLChris JonesUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEJones (undisclosed) was moved to injured reserve Saturday, Cam Inman of the Mercury News reports.

The nature of Jones' injury isn't clear. He's likely stuck on IR through season's end, barring an injury settlement.

02/05/18RBRaheem MostertKneeQUESTIONABLEMostert (knee) was placed on injured reserve by the 49ers on Monday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Mostert had been nursing a shoulder injury heading into Sunday's game against Seattle, but the knee injury sustained in the game is what ends his 2017 season. The move leaves the 49ers without a third running back for the time being, while Trent Taylor will likely step in to Mostert's prior role on kick returns.

02/05/18DBJaquiski TarttForearmQUESTIONABLETartt (wrist) was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Tartt was initially designated questionable to return after suffering the injury in the first half. Eric Reid is the most likely candidate to step in at strong safety.

02/05/18DBJimmie WardForearmQUESTIONABLEThe 49ers expect Ward (forearm) to be ready for the start of the team's offseason program in mid-April, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

After spending time at cornerback in 2016, Ward shifted back to free safety last season at the request of the 49ers' new coaching staff and was productive before fracturing his forearm, registering 32 tackles (27 solo) in seven games. Though Ward's salary is set to quadruple to $8.52 million during the upcoming season due to his fifth-year player option, the 49ers could negotiate a longer-term extension with the defensive back in order to spread the guaranteed money out over multiple seasons. Ward will be in line for a starting role in the secondary once again in 2018.

01/03/18LBBrock CoyleShoulder - LabrumQUESTIONABLECoyle sustained a torn labrum in his shoulder and underwent surgery Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

The expected recovery time is about five to six months, which would put Coyle's potential return in early summer, assuming he avoids any complications. The 27-year-old finished the 2017 season with 64 tackles (38 solo), one forced fumble and a half-sack.

12/31/17DLDeForest BucknerChestQUESTIONABLEBuckner (chest) was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Rams, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Buckner left the game in the first half to be evaluated for a chest injury, and it is apparently severe enough not to risk a return. Sheldon Day should continue to see an increased workload at defensive tackle for the 49ers.

12/31/17LBReuben FosterNeckQUESTIONABLEFoster (neck) is first scheduled to appear in court Feb. 28 after being arrested in Tuscaloosa, Ala. on Jan. 12 for marijuana possession, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.

The NFL will presumably wait and see how the legal process plays out for Foster before levying any discipline for the arrest, the first of two for the linebacker this offseason. He was also arrested Sunday in Los Gatos, Calif. on charges of domestic violence and threats and possession of an assault weapon, though a court date for that incident hasn't been set.

12/31/17WRMarquise GoodwinConcussionQUESTIONABLEHead coach Kyle Shanahan told Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com after Sunday's 34-13 win versus the Rams that Goodwin will fly back to San Francisco with the team.

Clearly, the news is positive after Goodwin was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure. He'll still have to make his way through the concussion protocol, but months remain before the 49ers take part in any meaningful activity. On the season, Goodwin recorded 56 catches (on 105 targets) for 962 yards and two touchdowns, during which he showed a budding rapport with Jimmy Garoppolo. At the very least, Goodwin will act as a big-play threat in 2018 opposite Pierre Garcon, who is working his way back from a season-ending neck injury.
