The San Francisco 49ers take on the Arizona Cardinals this weekend in the 49ers' second division game of the year. Both squads face injury questions in the backfield as starting running backs Frank Gore and Beanie Wells struggle to practice.
Neither Gore or Wells practiced on Wednesday. Wells is still listed as probable for Sunday's game, but Gore's status appears to be a little more uncertain. Gore missed the second half of last week's game against the New York Giants with a knee injury that continues to plague him. The full extent of Gore's status likely won't be determined until later this week.
49ers receivers Michael Crabtree and Braylon Edwards were both limited on Wednesday, but both figure to be on the field on Sunday. Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb was limited as well and could miss his third straight game, giving second-year quarterback John Skelton his third straight start and a chance to move to 3-0 this season as a starter.
Following is a full look at the injury reports for both teams on Wednesday:
