Armstead and Brown go back to practice with the 49ers, but Greenlaw doesn’t.

Armstead and Brown go back to practice with the 49ers, but Greenlaw doesn’t.

Since the 49ers don’t have practice this week, there won’t be an official practice report. However, several players did show up for their extra workout on Thursday.

Arik Armstead was seen in the early part of practice that was open to the media. He has been out since Week 14 with injuries to both feet and knees.

The defensive tackle on the interior probably took part in what was called a fierce and competitive practice, but it may not have been very much.

Rookie safety Ji’Ayir Brown was also back in the mix shortly after missing a pair of games with a knee injury.

However, Tashaun Gipson, who plays the same position, was still out with a thigh injury. If Gipson can’t get healthy enough to play in the divisional round, the Panthers may once again turn to veteran Logan Ryan to fill in.

Wednesday was the first day that George Odum could train again. The star safety or special teams player was seen sporting a blue non-contact shirt during practice the next day.

During warm-ups for defensive backs, Ambry Thomas joined him. The Michigan star missed the last game of the regular season because he had to have surgery on his hand. He was glad to see that a lot of his defensive teammates were back on the field.

Warner said, “So good to see those guys out there in uniform.” “You talk about how important Arik is to us and the things we do.

It was great to see him in uniform again.” It’s just good to have everyone moving near so that they are ready to go when we need them next week.

On offense, the 49ers got Jauan Jennings back after he cleared the league’s injury procedure. Brandon Aiyuk knew right away that the wide receiver was there.

“I believe it starts with the mind,” Aiyuk said. He makes the other people in the room hear that. What a boost it is to have him back on the field.

Before he left, we could still hear him, but it was only in the group, off to the side. Everyone can feel his good mood.

Christian McCaffrey hurt his leg in Week 17’s win against the Washington Commanders, so the 49ers are being careful with him. San Francisco won’t let him practice for the second week in a row.

The league’s leading rusher will be ready for the divisional round as long as the All-Pro back doesn’t get hurt.

Dre Greenlaw, a defender, was also not able to train today because he has had Achilles soreness since Week 17.

The 49ers were careful with Greenlaw, too, just like they were with McCaffrey. He should be ready to practice the following week.

Jon Feliciano, an offensive blocker, missed practice too because of a back issue. He is still considered day-to-day, but the team hopes he will be ready for the Divisional round.

While the San Francisco 49ers have been off this week for the first round of the NFC playoffs, they have two workouts. The first one was a sight for sore eyes.

Injuries to Arik Armstead’s knees and feet have kept him out of the last five games. He was, however, one of the players that could be seen on the playing field during the part of practice that was open to the press.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Tuesday the team was looking forward to Armstead’s comeback. This meant that the 2015 first-round pick could have played in Week 18 against the Los Angeles Rams if the 49ers needed him for playoff reasons.

Before he got hurt, Armstead was having his best season as the 2019 Super Bowl run by the 49ers.
Within the end of the season, Pro Football Focus placed him seventh among interior defensive tackles for pass rush.
