The San Francisco 49ers have already clinched the NFC West and are looking to solidify home field advantage in the playoffs. While their remaining schedule does not appear to be too difficult, the team cannot afford to overlook a lesser opponent with the postseason right around the corner. The Arizona Cardinals struggled throughout most of 2011, although they are slowly showing signs of improvements. They will give San Francisco everything they have on Sunday afternoon.
Here is the full injury report from Thursday:
Did Not Participate In Practice: LB Patrick Willis (hamstring)
Limited Participation In Practice: CB Tarell Brown (ankle), WR Braylon Edwards (knee), CB Carlos Rogers (knee)
Limited Participation In Practice: S Sean Considine (achilles), TE Todd Heap (hamstring), LB Joey Porter (knee), S Kerry Rhodes (foot), RB Chris Wells (knee, hamstring), P Dave Zastudil (biceps)
Full Participation In Practice: CB Michael Adams (hamstring), DT Darnell Dockett (quadricep)
The 49ers will enter week 14 relatively healthy, with Patrick Willis being the biggest blow to the defense. No official word has been announced for when Willis will return to the field, but there is a small chance the talented linebacker could sit for much of the rest of the regular season.
The Cardinals are pretty banged up at the moment and the loss of Beanie Wells could be huge on Sunday. The star running back is currently listed as questionable and it seems like his availability will not be known until a few minutes before kickoff.
