49ers TE George Kittle (ankle) returned to a full practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday. It's confirmation that he'll be ready for his usual role in this weekend's NFC Championship against the Packers.

49ers TE George Kittle was held out of Wednesday's practice with what's been reported as a sore ankle. This doesn't sound like something that'll impact his availability for this weekend's NFC Championship game vs. the Packers, but we'll continue to keep an eye on the situation.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert said he battled calf cramps in Saturday's Divisional Round game after being sick during the week. That might explain Tevin Coleman operating as San Francisco's lead back in the win over the Vikings -- although it seemed like Coleman was a big part of the game plan right from the get-go. He'll be the best fantasy bet in this backfield in the NFC Championship.

Patriots WRs Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are active for tonight’s game against the Texans. Dorsett should be a full-go after clearing the protocol on Wednesday. Sanu comes with a bit more risk, although he did put in 3 limited practices this week.

49ers K Robbie Gould (quad) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s game in Baltimore but isn’t a recommended fantasy play in that matchup.

Patriots WRs Mohamed Sanu (ankle) and Phillip Dorsett (concussion) are listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Texans. Both guys were limited in practice all week. Sanu is reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain, so consider him no better than 50/50 for this one. Dorsett said Wednesday that he cleared the concussion protocol, but the fact that he remained limited all week is slightly concerning. We’ll look for updates on both guys Sunday morning.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is officially active for tonight’s game against the Packers. On top of the knee issue, he’ll reportedly be playing through a broken bone in his ankle that still hasn’t fully healed. We’ll see how he holds up.

49ers TE George Kittle broke a bone in his ankle during the Week 9 win over the Cardinals, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Kittle somehow finished out that game but has been sidelined the past 2 weeks. The ankle still isn't fully healed, according to Schefter, but Kittle is expected to play against the Packers tonight. It obviously adds risk to his Week 12 outlook. We'll see how he fares.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu's injured ankle has "improved rapidly," giving him a "slim chance" to play against the Cowboys today. Rapoport adds that Sanu would be "extremely limited" if he ends up active. Avoid him in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

Matt Maiocco reports that the 49ers consider TE George Kittle a "game-time decision" for Sunday night's game against the Packers. Maiocco says that Kittle's goal "all along" has been to return for the Green Bay game. We'll keep an eye out for some indication early Sunday that the Niners expect him to play. If you're trying to wait on Kittle, though, you'll need to make sure you have insurance.

Niners WR Deebo Samuel is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Packers because of a shoulder injury that limited his practice time this week after knocking him out for a portion of last Sunday's game. Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, however, reports that the team expects Samuel to play. There's some extra risk here, but Samuel belongs in fantasy-starter consideration.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and has sounded optimistic about his availability. That late kickoff makes it a tricky situation for fantasy owners, though. Hopefully we get a Kittle update on Sunday morning.

49ers K Robbie Gould (quad) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. Chase McLaughlin will kick again for San Francisco.

Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cowboys. He’s reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain but did return for a limited practice on Friday. We’ll look for an update on Sanu on Sunday morning, but Pats-Cowboys doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET. Try to avoid him in fantasy lineups at less than 100%.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday, donning a no-contact jersey. Multiple 49ers beat writers now expect Kittle to play against the Packers on Sunday night. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

49ers WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He played through this injury last week and should be fine for Sunday night's game against the Packers.

Patriots insider Tom Curran hears that WR Mohamed Sanu is believed to be dealing with a high-ankle sprain that could cost him "a couple of weeks." That seems like an optimistic timetable if this is truly a high-ankle sprain. Fantasy owners should obviously plan on being without Sanu for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. His absence could open up more playing time for rookie WR N'Keal Harry.

WRs Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and Deebo Samuel (shoulder), RB Matt Breida (ankle) and TE George Kittle (knee) all missed Wednesday's practice. HC Kyle Shanahan said it'll "come down to the wire" whether they can play against the Packers on Sunday night. Samuel seems most likely to play after returning from his injury last week. And we're betting on Sanders suiting up after playing 36 snaps last week. Breida and Kittle are truly questionable.

Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) missed practice on Wednesday. We noticed Sanu tweak an ankle in Philadelphia on Sunday, but he was able to play through it. We'll see if he's able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.
