Seven players were listed with nagging injuries, but all are expected to go through a full practice Thursday.
It starts with quarterback Alex Smith, who should be on the practice field despite an injured finger on his right hand. The same goes for leading rusher Frank Gore, who is dealing with a hand injury. The 49ers' third-leading receiver Mario Manningham's shoulder has been bothering him, but he will practice Thursday.
The rest of the practice report lists four other players with nagging injuries. They include linebacker Tavares Gooden (elbow), guard Daniel Kilgore (concussion), punter Andy Lee (hand) and two-way player Will Tukuafu with an injured wrist.
Like San Francisco, St. Louis will be coming off a bye when the two teams get together Sunday.
