The Seahawks have discussed moving RT James Carpenter (ACL surgery) to left guard once he's healthy.

The coaching staff was satisfied with Breno Giacomini's work at right tackle late in the season, and they could add depth via the draft or free agency. Carpenter struggled in pass protection as a rookie, but he has the size and demeanor to fit in as a road-grader at guard.

Julius Thomas (elbow) is not practicing Wednesday.

It's a new injury for Thomas. He played his normal snap count last week against the Ravens, so it could just be a minor thing. For now, we'd expect him to play Sunday against the Colts in London where he'd be a TE1.

Coach Chip Kelly said he remains "real confident" in Blaine Gabbert as the starter.

Gabbert is completing just 55.2 percent of his passes at 5.5 yards per attempt with a 3:3 TD:INT ratio. He simply isn't getting it done, as the 49ers have been rocked in two-straight games. Kelly said Colin Kaepernick will continue to be the No. 2 until he gets his body (gains weight) back to its 2013 form.

Doug Martin (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

Martin is fully expected to miss another 1-2 weeks. Charles Sims will continue to carry the bulk of the load and be backed up by Jacquizz Rodgers.

Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder) and Jacoby Brissett (thumb) both practiced on Wednesday.

Garoppolo reportedly is "still in pain and doesn't yet have full mobility" in his throwing shoulder, but he didn't look any worse for the wear while throwing at Wednesday's practice. He and Brissett split the first-team reps. Don't expect gamesman coach Bill Belichick to name a starter until the end of the week.

DeSean Jackson (ankle) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Jackson went into Week 3 with an ankle ailment, but he played through it and ran right by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for a 44-yard touchdown. He appeared to re-tweak the ankle but quickly returned. At this point, we'd expect Jackson to play Sunday against the Browns. Check back Thursday.

Coach John Harbaugh expressed disappointment in the Ravens' running game and said he's looking at potential changes in the backfield.

"More than changes," Harbaugh said. "It's about seeking to improve." Justin Forsett has been dreadful with just 98 scoreless yards on 31 attempts (3.2 YPC) as the "starter." Terrance West hasn't been much better with 119 scoreless yards on 33 carries (3.6 YPC), but he recorded the Ravens' longest run of the young season last week, a 15-yarder to open the third quarter. Rookie Kenneth Dixon (knee) is nearing a return and will likely be given a shot to handle a chunk of the load.

Drew Brees said his "trust factor and confidence level" in Coby Fleener "just continues to go up."

"We’re still growing, big time," Brees said. "But I think there were some things that happened out here [Monday night] where it’s the way that I envisioned. The way that we’ve been talking about, the way I've been communicating to him and we’ve been working on it during practice. So when those things begin to happen, the trust factor and the confidence level just continues to go up." Fleener exploded for a 7-109-1 line on 11 targets in the Week 3 loss to the Falcons and will again be a mid-range TE1 in a dream matchup with the Chargers this Sunday.

Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

As expected. Stewart is fully expected to miss multiple games with his strained hammy. Cameron Artis-Payne, Fozzy Whittaker, and Mike Tolbert will again carry the running-back load Week 4 against the Falcons.
Sep 28 - 12:25 PM

Sammy Watkins (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.

Watkins is expected to test his foot either today or Thursday and will then make a decision on his Week 4 status. His week isn't starting off on the right foot.
Sep 28 - 12:22 PM

Rob Gronkowski (hamstring) said he's experienced "no setbacks" since last Thursday night's win over the Texans.

In his first action of the season, Gronkowski splayed just 14-of-64 snaps in a very limited offensive role. The Patriots still steamrolled the Texans. Gronk should be closer to full go this week against the Bills and will be a top-end TE1 since he'll likely be in the game for red-zone situations at the very least.
Sep 28 - 12:09 PM

Dez Bryant (knee) will not practice Wednesday.

The Cowboys say Tuesday's MRI results aren't yet known. Yeah, okay, right. Beat writers remain in the dark regarding Bryant's injury and status. It's truly anybody's guess whether Bryant will play against the 49ers.
