Running back Christian McCaffrey remains on the practice report but with only one injury. The 49ers removed the ankle injury McCaffrey was listed with last week, but he remains on the report with the knee injury he has had since Week 13.

He was estimated as a limited participant Tuesday.

Week 12 was the last week McCaffrey wasn’t listed on the practice report.

The past six weeks, McCaffrey has had either limited work or none the first two practice days of the week before being a full participant on the final practice day.

Defensive lineman Nick Bosa (rest), quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (foot) and cornerback Ambry Thomas (ankle) did not practice Tuesday.

Defensive lineman Arik Armstead (foot, ankle), offensive lineman Aaron Banks (ankle, knee), linebacker Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (neck), linebacker Dre Greenlaw (back) and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw (knee) were estimated as limited.

Greenlaw missed Week 18 after not practicing all last week.

  1. Not sure why Kyle played RUN CMC t against the cardinals. They could have won that game without him. Hopefully it’s not serious.

  2. it’s nothing. It’s the same report he’s been on since many weeks ago. He used to be limited with ankle and knee. Now it’s just the knee and they keep him out of a few practices to rest. He practices on Fridays and is ready to go. Not a new injury.

  3. The road to the SB has started and McCaffrey will play. Once the 49ers get a good lead he will be on the bench.

    It’s not serious. And hindsight is 20/20, Cardinals always played them tough historically. And CMC only had 10 rushes, they played both rookie RBs and Elijah Mitchell. I’m not always so reverential to Shanahan, but against the Cardinals I think he did everything right. Kittle and some of the other stars like Trent Williams and Fred Warner probably played too long, but they had to make sure they got the number two seed and they still had a chance at the 1 seed when the game started. And for a little more than a quarter it seemed like it would be a competitive game.
