Sopoaga returns to (mostly) healthy 49ers squad; Bowman, Rogers nicked

****Update***** LB Navorro Bowman (shoulder), CB Carlos Rogers (ankle), DT Isaac Sopoaga (knee, ankle) were listed as limited; RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) and P Andy Lee (hand) were full go. Ted Ginn was not listed on the injury report.

The 49ers are healthier than they've been all season. When practice began today, every player on the 53-man roster was in uniform and on the practice field. That includes running back Brandon Jacobs and nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga, both of whom missed Sunday's game, as well as Ted Ginn, who was listed as questionable but played.

Linebacker NaVorro Bowman had a wrap on his right arm and was dressed in a black jersey, presumably designating him a non-contact participant on Wednesday. Injured rookies Darius Fleming and Jewel Hampton worked out on a side field; Parys Haralson, who went on injured reserve last month, has continued to be around the team and was working out in the new weight-room facility - nicknamed "The Barn" - today.

For the Bills, S Jairus Byrd (hip), T Cordy Glenn (ankle), DT Spencer Johnson (ankle) and G Kraig Urbik (ankle) did not practice; WR Ruvell Martin (ankle) was limited; TE Scott Chandler (head) and WR Donald Jones (head) practiced in full.
