A familiar face returned to practice for the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, practicing with the team for the first time since breaking his fibula against the Cowboys.
That's right everybody, fullback Moran Norris returned to practice on Thursday joining his team on the field for the first time since September 18. He remained limited is practice, as did wide receivers Michael Crabtree (foot), Braylon Edwards (knee), cornerbacks Chris Culliver (shoulder) and Tramaine Brock (hand), and center Jonathan Goodwin (concussion). No players did not participate for the 49ers today, always a good sign.
As for the Browns, running back Peyton Hillis took a step back on his road to recovery from his hamstring strain as he did not practice at all on Thursday. He didn't play last week's game against the Seattle Seahawks, and is still up in the air against the 49ers. Tight end Benjamin Watson (head), wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi (head), and safety Raymond Ventrone (hamstring) all were out for Cleveland as well.
