The San Francisco 49ers will be fairly injury-free on Thanksgiving, which should be a good sign when they head to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. It figures to be a physical, hard-hitting matchup, so San Francisco being healthy will be fairly important.
The Niners will likely have their big offensive playmakers ready. Frank Gore and Michael Crabtree were both limited in practice, but both of them are going to play on Thursday. The only one doubtful is Bruce Miller, who is still recovering from concussions. San Francisco will need their offense to generate the critical points so they can turn it over to their defense to win this one.
The Ravens are a little less lucky. Ray Lewis is still getting limited reps (like Gore and Crabtree), but he's listed as questionable. Lewis not playing on that defense isn't a gamechanger, but considering San Francisco has embraced a physical nature of football, they might need him to play to win.
Here's the full list of injuries.
DOUBTFUL: RB Bruce Miller (concussion)
PROBABLE: WR Michael Crabtree (foot), CB Chris Culliver (shoulder), T Anthony Davis (ankle), WR Braylon Edwards (knee), RB Frank Gore (knee)
OUT: DT Arthur Jones (head)
QUESTIONABLE: RB Anthony Allen (thigh), CB Chris Carr (back), LB Dannell Ellerbe (thigh), LB Ray Lewis (foot)
PROBABLE: S Haruki Nakamura (thigh)
