Date: Team: Pos:

Bruce Ellington (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Ellington will be a game-time decision against the Cardinals. With Stevie Johnson sidelined, Ellington should remain the No. 3 receiver.
Dec 26 - 6:34 PM

Michael Crabtree (knee) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Crabtree was limited to 15 snaps last week due to his knee issue. He's played through multiple injuries this season, leading to a disappointing 64/657/4 line. An impending free agent, Crabtree faces an uncertain future with the 49ers.
Dec 26 - 6:21 PM

Stevie Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Michael Crabtree (knee) and Brandon Lloyd (groin) are listed as probable. Due a $250,000 roster bonus in 2015, Johnson is a candidate for offseason release.
Dec 26 - 6:12 PM

Carlos Hyde (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Hyde's ankle injury will cost him the final two games of the season. His rookie year ends with 83 carries, 333 yards (4.0 YPC) and four touchdowns. Alfonso Smith will back up Frank Gore in the season finale.
Dec 26 - 6:02 PM

49ers signed KR Trindon Holliday.

They placed OG Alex Boone and S Ray Ventrone on injured reserve to clear roster space for Holliday and someone named "Cameron Fuller."
Dec 26 - 2:46 PM

When asked if he wants to be back with the 49ers next season, impending free agent Michael Crabtree said, "It depends."

Crabtree was a major disappointment this season, recording just 64 catches for 657 yards and four touchdowns. Colin Kaepernick's regression certainly hasn't helped, but there's also concern about Crabtree's ability since coming off a 2013 Achilles' tendon tear. Anquan Boldin has been far more effective in terms of both getting open and YAC. His market is extremely uncertain and the confident Crabtree may have his eye on a more pass-game friendly offense.

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

Hyde will likely miss his second straight game against the Cardinals. Alfonso Smith should continue to back up Frank Gore.
Dec 24 - 4:08 PM

49ers GM Trent Baalke said he wants impending free agent Frank Gore back in 2015.

Baalke is only going to want the career-long Niner to return under his terms. That likely means on a very cheap contract with an understanding that the team needs to feature Carlos Hyde more. Gore, who will turn 32 in May, takes a 230-962-4 line into Sunday's finale against the Cardinals. "Frank is going to want to discuss his role, and what that role is going to be moving forward," Baalke said. "What is the contract itself going to look like? We can both want each other's company, but to make that happen, there are hurdles that are going to have to be crossed."
Dec 24 - 9:06 AM

Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) remained sidelined Tuesday.

It's looking like Hyde will miss his second-straight game. That would leave Bruce Miller and Alfonso Smith behind Frank Gore in what is expected to be Jim Harbaugh's last game coaching the 49ers.
Dec 23 - 5:01 PM

Former 49ers draft pick Marcus Lattimore has re-enrolled at the University of South Carolina with a projected graduation date of January 2016.

He'll also take on an "ambassador" role with the university and its football program. Lattimore is still South Carolina's all-time leader in touchdowns. He tried to spend about a season and a half in the NFL recuperating from two devastating knee injuries, but couldn't get his body in optimal condition to play in the pros, understandably. Lattimore turned 23 this past October.
Dec 22 - 5:03 PM

Michael Crabtree (knee) was limited to 15 snaps in Saturday's loss to the Chargers.

Crabtree gutted it out through a questionable tag, but wasn't right and didn't want to push it in a meaningless game. He did have to come back into the overtime contest late after other members of the receiving corps got nicked up. Consider Crabtree very questionable for the finale.
Dec 22 - 12:13 PM

Vernon Davis did not receive a target Week 16 against the Chargers.

The goose egg is misleading, as Davis had a 63-yard touchdown catch negated by penalty in the third quarter. Davis caught a bullet from Kaepernick down the seam and bullied his way into the end zone, but the play was called back by a chop block. Even though it did not count, the long catch showed Davis still has the playmaking ability that made him a fantasy star.
Dec 21 - 12:37 AM

Quinton Patton caught 2-of-6 targets for nine yards Week 16 against the Chargers.

Patton saw extended time with Michael Crabtree (knee) sidelined, but failed to do much with the work. Patton's most notable play of the game was an overtime fumble that set the Chargers up for a game-winning field goal.
Dec 21 - 12:33 AM

Anquan Boldin caught 7-of-9 targets for 61 yards Week 16 against the Chargers.

With Michael Crabtree sidelined most of the game, Boldin was the clear No. 1 option in the passing game, garnering nine of the 49ers' 24 targets. Boldin did not make much happen with the looks, but did have a touchdown catch called back because of a holding call in the second quarter. With Crabtree's playing status unknown, Boldin will set up as a WR3 in the 49ers' season finale against the Cardinals.
Dec 21 - 12:30 AM

Colin Kaepernick rushed seven times for 151 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Chargers, adding 114 yards and a score through the air.

With the 49ers dominating on the ground, Kaepernick was only asked to throw 24 times in a game San Francisco led 28-7 at halftime. Kaepernick's best play of the night was a 90-yard touchdown scramble in the third quarter. Kaepernick escaped pressure, put a move on Chargers S Eric Weddle and turned on the jets for the long score that appeared to put a stop to San Diego's comeback bid. It was all for nought, however, as two Philip Rivers' fourth-quarter touchdown passes and a Quinton Patton overtime fumble sealed the 49ers' fate. Despite the loss, Kaepernick appeared more willing to run for the second week in a row, and clearly showed the athleticism that once made him feared still exists. He is not a good real-life quarterback, but Kaepernick can be a quality fantasy option as long as he continues to run.
