The 49ers were without their strongest pass rushing threat in week one against the Seattle Seahawks and it appears that he was sorely missed (though it's not really up for debate whether or not they'd have won with him — we can assume not) throughout. Brooks was injured before the start of the regular season and was out with a kidney laceration.
Now it appears he'll see some action in Monday night's game against the New Orleans Saints. Brooks was not listed on the injury report and participated in practice on Thursday. He was healthy enough to get into a scuffle with CB Shawntae Spencer.
The team is moving in both directions, while Ahmad Brooks and Kyle Williams appear to be nearing the end of their injuries, Ted Ginn Jr. and Chilo Rachal both were held out of practice, alongside Will James and Eric Heitmann, the latter of which was the only player to be listed as out for sure. For the injury report on upcoming game on Monday, see below. Also, you can see our stream for the game here.
