Originally written September 13, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The San Francisco 49ers’ are amongst the healthiest teams in the NFL heading into their week 2 divisional game with the Seattle Seahawks, according to their official team web site. In fact, the only player listed as a non-participant in practice this week is running back LaMichael James. While James can bring a dynamic element to the 49ers’ backfield—as well as their special teams—he is by no means a player they can’t live without. The fact that he represents the 49ers’ lone injury concern heading into this weekend may signify a distinct advantage in this battle of potential Super Bowl contenders. To make things a bit more intriguing, the Seattle Seahawks appear far less fortunate in the health department heading into this much-anticipated showdown. They have an incredible nine players listed on their injury report as of Thursday. Amongst those listed are Pro-Bowl cornerback Brandon Browner and starting defensive tackles Brandon Mebane and Tony McDaniel. While the majority of Seattle’s players should play, this is still a storyline worth monitoring heading into the weekend.It should also be noted that San Francisco has not been entirely immune to the injury bug this year. They previously lost wide receiver Michael Crabtree and starting nickel cornerback Chris Culliver to Injured Reserve during the preseason. They also drafted running back Marcus Lattimore in the fourth round who is unlikely to play in 2013, though his status comes as no surprise. With that being said, here is the official injury report according to the San Francisco 49ers’ official web site.
