We’re one step closer to the Super Bowl now that four teams fell by the wayside in last week’s Wild Card round, the health outlook for this weekend’s Divisional Round battles is relatively bright. There are some big names on the injury report, but all but one, Will Fuller, are firmly trending toward playing, while Fuller himself is shaping up as a 50/50 proposition. The 49ers are also getting three strong IDP performers back, and the quarterback position sees all eight of this weekend’s starters carrying a clean bill of health. Without further ado, let’s plug into the latest as of Saturday morning:
Divisional Round Injuries
Wild Card Round Preview
Injury Report Update
Key Defensive Players
The Chiefs‘ Morris Claiborne (shoulder) will not play in Sunday’s Divisional Round battle against the Texans after missing practice all week.The Vikings‘ Mackensie Alexander (knee) was placed on injured reserve this past week and underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday. The Texans’ Johnathan Joseph (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday’s Divisional Round matchup against the Chiefs after a week of limited practices.
The Texans’ Jahleel Addae (Achilles) is questionable for Sunday’s Divisional Round matchup versus the Chiefs after three limited practices this week.The Vikings’ Jayson Kearse (toe) will not play in Saturday afternoon’s Divisional Round matchup against the 49ers after missing practice all week.The 49ers’ Jaquiski Tartt (ribs) practiced in full all week and does not carry an injury designation heading into Saturday afternoon’s Divisional Round matchup against the Vikings. Tartt last played in Week 13 against the Ravens and is expected to jump back into his starting strong safety role.
The Seahawks‘ Ezekiel Ansah (neck) is questionable for Sunday’s Divisional Round matchup versus the Packers after finishing the week with two missed practices. Teammate Quinton Jefferson (ankle) carries the same designation after finishing the week with a pair of limited practices.The 49ers’ Dee Ford (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday afternoon’s Divisional Round battle against the Vikings after three limited practices this past week. Ford last played in Week 14 against the Saints and logged just four plays in that contest, so he would likely be on a snap count if he does suit up.The Packers’ Kenny Clark (back) is questionable for Sunday’s Divisional Round battle versus the Seahawks after finishing the week with two limited practices. The Chiefs’ Chris Jones (calf) is questionable for Sunday’s Divisional Round tilt against the Texans and finished the week with a missed practice session Friday following limited participation Thursday.
The Titans‘ Jayon Brown (shoulder) will not play in Saturday night’s Divisional Round contest against the Ravens after missing practice all week.The 49ers activated Kwon Alexander (pectoral) off injured reserve this week, and the fifth-year linebacker has been practicing since early in the month. Alexander is fully expected to play in Saturday afternoon’s Divisional Round matchup against the Vikings, although a late-week report indicated he isn’t likely to have an every-down role.
