The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers will meet for the first time since their tussle in the NFC Championship in January on Thanksgiving night.

The 49ers may have to play the game without starting right tackle Anthony Davis.

According to Matt Maiocco of, Davis is still experiencing concussion symptoms suffered last week against the New York Giants. Davis did not play Sunday against the Washington Redskins and would not have participated in practice Monday if the 49ers had held a full practice.

Both Seattle and San Francisco held walkthrough practices and participation is estimated.

With a short week, passing all stages of the concussion protocol is nearly impossible to get accomplished. Jonathan Martin would start again if Davis is unable to play.

Cornerback Tremaine Brock (hamstring), tight end Derek Carrier (foot), DT Glenn Dorsey (forearm), receiver Bruce Ellington (ankle) and defensive end Justin Smith (back) would not have participated in practice Monday. Running back Frank Gore (knee) and tight end Vance McDonald (back) were listed as limited.

Receiver Brandon Lloyd (quadriceps), running back Bruce MIller (shoulder) and safeties Eric Reid (ankle) and Raymond Ventrone (groin) would have been full participants.

For the Seahawks, tight end Cooper Helfet suffered a sprained ankle against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday and his status for Thursday’s game is questionable at best. Center Max Unger (ankle/knee) and linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis (shoulder) are not expected to play.

Head coach Pete Carroll hinted at Pierre-Louis’ shoulder injury being potentially season-ending.

Running back Marshawn Lynch (back), receiver Jermaine Kearse (ankle), guard James Carpenter (ankle), defensive end Demarcus Dobbs (knee) and cornerbacks Marcus Burley (hamstring) and Jeremy Lane (glute) would have been limited.

  1. Thinking back to beginning of this season and last season looking ahead you knew this would be a big game. Everybody knew this game would be for 1st place in the NFC West and pretty much for home field advantage through NFC playoff. Now today this game is more for just making the playoffs, it’s crazy how things have changed.

  2. Before all u Seattle fans start getting ahead of ur team. We beat u guys last ur at our house! And the yr before last and the yr before last! Kinda like the energized bunny. Lol

    Not a surprise if you paid attention to AZ’s 7-2 2nd half last year and their offseason. Everyone knew Seattle would take a step back as defending champs, because of the depth they lost in free agency, but they still are good because they’re still relatively young, while SF is an older team whose window is closing. Vernon Davis and Frank Gore have taken a step back. Surprisingly, Crabtree has been quiet in an extension year. Joe Staley, after turning 30, has struggled this year. O-line + LB has been banged up (played 8 playoff games in last 3 years, might be a factor into SF’s injuries).

  4. Then there’s the NFC south. I didn’t think it would ever be broken, our record, 7-9 division champs.

  5. Those chumps haven’t won in SFs’ house since 08. Doubt that changes Thursday. Those chumps are one dimensional and Wilson isn’t going to run around chucking up prayers. They will keep him in the pocket. Prepare to meet Aldon.

  6. Sactomkii, the difference is he just listed starters. You aren’t missing your three starting CBs. If we wanted to list all the players missing on both sides it would be close. But when a lot of those players have been out all year it’s not worth brining up cause they haven’t played and aren’t going to. Better to just pretend they aren’t on the team for the year

  7. We’ve lost starters throughout the entire season. Some came back, some didn’t and won’t. Brock, Culliver, V Davis, A Davis, Willis, Williams, Kilgore, Ward, Smith, etc. We may not be missing our cbs now but we’ve been missing the heart of our linebacking corp plus a whole lot more. Yet we still keep winning.

    I can’t wait to call out little Joey when the niners get beat at their new house. Back to the basement Joey, Mommy will tell you when dinner is ready.

  9. joey, feel free to mention the last time the niners beat the hawks in Seattle you might have a point.

    I think it is fair enough to say that both teams have changed quite a bit.
