49ers defensive lineman Nick Bosa took a step toward returning to action this weekend. He had a limited practice Wednesday.

Bosa was diagnosed with a concussion during Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. He did not practice Tuesday.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (right shoulder/right thumb) was upgraded to full participation after being limited Tuesday.

All 53 players practiced Wednesday.

Linebacker Marcell Harris (Achilles), cornerback Ambry Thomas (knee) and defensive lineman Jordan Willis (ankle) were limited.

Linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair (knee), linebacker Dre Greenlaw (groin), safety Talanoa Hufanga (knee), running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) and linebacker Fred Warner (ankle) were full participants.

The 49ers held off the Cowboys 23-17 despite Bosa playing only 23 of 72 snaps and Warner 59.

  1. Did anyone expect something different? It’s the playoffs and incentive’s time. You’re not working the whole year just to say I can’t play ‘cause I have a boo boo.

  2. Concussion recovery and treatment
    Approximately 80 percent of concussions resolve over seven to 14 days, with an average of 10 days. People with concussions should never return to sports or other physical activity sooner than one week from sustaining the injury.

    A concussed patient’s recovery has two and sometimes three phases depending on the severity of the concussion:
    Acute phase is the initial period after sustaining a concussion in which the patient is still experiencing symptoms. This phase can last a week or more. During the acute phase, the concussed brain requires mental and physical rest to recover from the injury.

  3. 1-2 seasons ago a concussion was a guaranteed one game break, but many players missed two games and sometimes more then that. Now guys are back at practice after 4 days? I guess sports science has made HUGE leaps in repairing brain injuries in the last few months.

  4. Rodgers will fold under the pressure the 49ers will be able to bring with Nick Bosa and friends.

  5. rope4444 says: The Packers aren’t the Cowboys.

    You’re right. The Cowboys have an all-round better team than the Packers.

    My prediction: The 49ers will run all over the Packers, and their defense will harass Rodgers all day, leading to a 31-17 49er victory.

  6. Packers should win by five TDs. They’re that much better than the Niners. If Rodgers goes down, 4 TDs.
