49ers running back Christian McCaffrey went on the team’s practice report with a knee injury in Week 13. He had remained on the report every week since.

But Wednesday’s practice report brought good news: McCaffrey’s name was nowhere to be found.

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

He now is healthy enough to have a full practice on the first practice day of the week.

McCaffrey has had 100-yard rushing games in four of the past six games, including the wild-card playoff win over the Seahawks when he had 15 carries for 119 yards while catching two passes for 17 yards and a touchdown.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan anticipated left tackle Trent Williams practicing Wednesday, but the team ended up giving Williams a rest day.

He joined quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (foot) and cornerback Ambry Thomas (ankle) in missing the first practice day of the week.

Defensive lineman Samson Ebukam (ankle), receiver Jauan Jennings (ankle) and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw (knee) were limited.

  1. Was McCaffrey dogging it with Carolina? This guy was constantly hurt but now that he is on a great team he plays every week.

  2. The Cowboys will be blown out this weekend. Th old Dak will return and throw atleast 2 picks one for a pick sixthat will be the game changer. 49ers 39 Cowboys 20. Take it to the bank! The 27 years of no NFC Championship game for the Cowboys continues. 49ers/Eagles NFC Championship game.

  3. I wouldn’t discount the Cowboys as all the media seems to be doing.
    My money is on 49ners for the big one, but I have a feeling, the Cowboys will spoil the party

  4. Going to be a good game. I’m not going to say one team is going to blow out the other.
    Who wants it more and who is going to commit fewer mistakes.
    May the best team win and no injuries.
    Of course, I’ll continue to root heavily for my favorite team – rhe 49ers

  5. Love all the wrong predictions that say “take it to the bank” and they never bet a dime on the actual game. Clown world
