DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Hopkins played all 72 snaps in Sunday's loss, so it's not clear when he suffered the injury. With Andre Johnson returning this week and Thad Lewis or Case Keenum expected to start, Hopkins should be avoided as a fantasy option.
Dec 17 - 5:50 PM

Arian Foster (hip) did not practice Wednesday.

The Texans are listing Foster with a hip injury, but this is likely for rest purposes. Foster should be fine for Sunday's matchup with the Ravens.
Dec 17 - 5:43 PM

Greg Jennings (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Jennings should be available this week despite his hamstring issue. He'll be updated again on Thursday.
Dec 17 - 5:30 PM

Matt Asiata (foot) was limited on Wednesday.

There hasn't been any indication Asiata's foot injury will keep him out this week. He's a touchdown-dependent FLEX option for Sunday's matchup with Miami.
Dec 17 - 5:21 PM

Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) said he does not expect to play in Saturday's game against the Chargers barring a miracle.

Despite receiving good news following an MRI, it doesn't look like Hyde is going to be able to go on this short week. It's terrible timing, as Frank Gore (concussion) is in serious doubt as well. It's certainly possible the 49ers will be forced to roll with Alfonso Smith and Phillip Tanner at running back Saturday.
Dec 17 - 5:14 PM

Kyle Rudolph (knee, ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Rudolph recently admitted he wasn't completely over his sports-hernia surgery and is now dealing with knee and ankle injuries. He should be considered questionable for Week 16. Chase Ford would start if Rudolph doesn't play this week.
Dec 17 - 5:08 PM

Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Frank Gore (concussion) also remained out on Wednesday. The 49ers are on a short week with a game against the Chargers on Saturday night. With both Hyde and Gore uncertain for Week 16, the 49ers signed RB Phillip Tanner on Wednesday. Alfonso Smith and Tanner are the lone healthy backs on the roster.
Dec 17 - 4:50 PM

Frank Gore (concussion) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Gore says he feels normal, but has yet to be cleared by an independent neurologist. With Gore and Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) uncertain for Saturday's game against the Chargers, the 49ers signed RB Phillip Tanner on Wednesday.
