49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (knee, ankle) doesn't appear on the team's final injury report. He should be all set to go for Week 18 vs. the Cardinals. McCaffrey has dealt with these issues for several weeks now without missing a game. The 49ers still have a shot at NFC's #1 seed, so we're expecting CMC to play as long as he's able. McCaffrey is obviously an elite fantasy play vs. the Cardinals' 30th-ranked RB defense.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Thursday that he expects RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend. He's been out since spraining an MCL in Week 12 but returned to practice this week. Mitchell should step back in as San Francisco's #2 RB this postseason, but it's possible he's limited in his first game back.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) logged limited practice on Thursday according to the official team website. Various reports indicate that Samuel logged full participation, so we're a bit hazy on the veteran's availability for Week 18 vs. the Cardinals. It's certainly looking likely that Samuel's return to NFL action is on the horizon though. We'll circle back on this tomorrow.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (knee, ankle) didn't practice again on Thursday. The affectionately nicknamed CMC has played through injury for much of this season, but it's still worth noting his lack of activity. Check back again tomorrow for updates regarding his status for Week 18 vs. the Cardinals.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (knee, ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Kyle Shanahan labeled him "day to day" earlier this week. With San Francisco still having a shot at the NFC's #1 seed, we're expecting McCaffrey to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend. We'll get another update on his status on Thursday afternoon.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) practiced fully on Wednesday. It's looking good for Samuel to make his return to NFL action since getting hurt in Week 14 vs. the Buccaneers. We'll continue to monitor the veteran's status in advance of Week 18 vs. the Cardinals.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) has been designated to return from IR. He's been out since spraining an MCL in Week 12. We'll see if he's ready to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend. A healthy Mitchell figures to slide back in as San Francisco's #2 RB behind Christian McCaffrey.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday that RB Christian McCaffrey is "day to day" with an ankle sprain suffered in the win over the Raiders. The ankle didn't seem to be much of an issue in that one, with McCaffrey going for 193 total yards and a score. We'll keep an eye on him this week, but he should be fine for Sunday's regular-season finale vs. the Cardinals. San Francisco is still alive for the NFC's #1 seed, needing a win plus an Eagles loss to the Giants.

Niners LB Dre Greenlaw left Sunday's win over the Raiders with a back injury. HC Kyle Shanahan said Greenlaw would have a Monday MRI to determine the extent.

49ers Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) has been ruled out for Week 17 vs. the Raiders. HC Kyle Shanahan had hoped to get the crafty wideout back before too long, but it looks like they'll have to wait another week. This effectively ends Samuel's 2022 fantasy season unless you're a manager who plays into Week 18.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (knee) practiced in full on Friday and doesn't have an injury tag in advance of Week 17 vs. the Raiders. Teammate RB Jordan Mason (hamstring) also fully practiced and will be ready for Sunday. Fire up McCaffrey as an RB1 stud per usual.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (oblique, rib) practiced fully all week and doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Week 17 vs. the Raiders. Purdy ranks 10th among QBs in fantasy points over the past 4 weeks, with 2 passing TDs in every game. He's done it on high-end efficiency, averaging just 26.5 pass attempts per game. But he should be efficient again this weekend against a bad Raiders defense. The 49ers' 25.75-point implied total is 4th highest on the week.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (oblique, rib) upgraded to full practice participation on Thursday. We fully expect the wunderkind rookie to be under center in Week 17 vs. the Raiders. We'll keep an eye on Friday's injury report in case something changes.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (knee) once again practiced in a limited fashion on Thursday. Teammate RB Jordan Mason (hamstring) logged limited practice as well. Friday's injury report will shed light on the availability of this pair of backs for Week 17's game vs. the Raiders. We certainly feel better about McCaffrey suiting up considering he's played through this ailment for some time.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) returned to team practice in a limited fashion on Thursday. After sitting out since Week 14 vs. the Buccaneers, fantasy managers might get the dynamic wideout back for championship week. We'll keep an eye out for news tomorrow regarding Samuel's status for Week 17 vs. the Raiders.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (oblique, rib) was listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday. The gutsy rookie has played hurt for a few weeks now, so he'll probably get the green light to take on the Raiders in Week 17. Just in case something changes, we'll keep watch on the news wire for updates.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (knee) logged limited practice participation on Wednesday. The affectionately nicknamed CMC has played through this ailment for weeks, so his availability for Week 17 vs. the Raiders doesn't seem to be in jeopardy. We'll still keep an eye on this if anything goes south.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said last week that WR Deebo Samuel (ankle, knee) has a shot at being available for Week 17 vs. the Raiders. The team is being cautious with their star wideout as they prepare for a postseason run. It's unsurprising that Samuel opened the week without activity, but it'll be worth keeping an eye on. Check back in tomorrow for more information.

Broncos EDGE Randy Gregory and Rams G Oday Aboushi had their suspensions reduced to fines on appeal. The league suspended both players 1 game for fighting after Sunday's game. But they'll both be available to their teams for Week 17 now.

The NFL has suspended Broncos EDGE Randy Gregory and Rams G Oday Aboushi for a game after the 2 threw punches at each other after Sunday's game. That means Gregory will miss the final week of the fantasy football season in most leagues, while the Rams will go without a player who spent the past 2 weeks in the starting lineup. That won't help an O-line that has already ranked among the league's worst this season.
