The good news for the 49ers: Outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks, who is coming off of two multi-sack games, did not miss practice due to an injury. Instead he is listed as having an illness. He, defensive end Demarcus Dobbs, center Jonathan Goodwin and defensive end Justin Smith sat out today's session.
Dobbs suffered his injuries last week against Green Bay. He also missed last Wednesday's practice but returned to practice on Thursday and played against the Panthers. Smith and Goodwin typically are given a day off due to their veteran status. Two other players, cornerback Carlos Rogers and fullback Will Tukuafu, were listed as limited participants. Tukuafu practiced with a brace on his left knee.
Meanwhile, Michael Crabtree suffered a shoulder injury on the second play of Sunday's game against Carolina that kept him out three plays. But he was full-go in today's practice, and his shoulder injury was not listed as an issue. Instead he is dealing with the same wrist injury he has had for the last month.
