Running back Frank Gore (knee) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, after being limited on Monday. He has also been dealing with a hip issue recently, but barring something unforeseen Gore should be active on Thursday night. However, rookie Carlos Hyde may be in line for more work.
Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (quadricep) participated fully in practice on both Monday and Tuesday, as did fullback Bruce Miller (shoulder), safety Eric Reid (ankle) and safety Raymond Ventrone (groin). All four should suit up Thursday night.
Rookie wide receiver Bruce Ellington (ankle) did not practice on Monday, but he was a limited participant on Tuesday. Tight end Vance McDonald (back) was limited on Monday and Tuesday. Both may be headed for questionable designations on the 49ers' final injury report.
The list of players did not practice on Monday or Tuesday for the 49ers is fairly extensive. Defensive end Justin Smith (back), offensive tackle Anthony Davis (concussion), defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey (forearm), cornerback Tramaine Brock (hamstring) and tight end Derek Carrier (foot) all have not practiced this week. Davis looks particularly unlikely to play after missing Week 12, while Dorsey has been activated from injured reserve/designated to return but did not play against the Redskins last Sunday.
