After being evaluated for a concussion in the locker room just before the final drive started, Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson returned to the game with about 1:24 remaining.

He was displaying concussion-like symptoms as the Cardinals attempted to come back from a 15-10 deficit againt the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Impact:

Prior to the injury, Johnson had 16 carries for 59 yards and three receptions for 42 yards. Johnson and the Cards have a bye this coming week before returning to play the Chiefs in Week 10.

49ers WR Dante Pettis (knee) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. He was removed from the injury report so he’s going to return this week. With Pierre Garcon out, there should be extra snaps available.

49ers WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, knee, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 8. He’s very unlikely to play against the Cardinals

Friday, October 26, 2018, 7:08pm

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 8. The return to practice definitely improves his odds of playing, though he’s no sure thing. The 49ers play in the late round of games, so owners will need to be on their toes. If Breida can’t play, look for Raheem Mostert to see the majority of the touches in a great matchup against the Cardinals (No. 32 in RB aFPA).

49ers RB Matt Breida officially questionable

Niners' Nation - [Full Article]

According to the 49ers official injury report, Matt Breida (ankle, everything) got in a limited practice Friday and is questionable for Week 8.

Fantasy Impact:

We've read reports and speculation that are all over the place on Breida, but the general consensus is he is more likely to sit than play. We don't buy that necessarily, especially after the same was expected back in Week 6, a game he not only played, but managed 14 touches for 61 yards and a score. That said, if Breida goes, don't expect a full workload, as the recent emergence of Raheem Mostert gives them a little more cushion than they had with the one-dimensional Alfred Morris. If Breida can't play, we'd expect Mostert to get the bulk of the work, making him an RB2 in a fantastic matchup against the Cardinals 32nd ranked rush defense in our Adjusted Fantasy Points Allowed metric.

49ers WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, knee) did not practice Wednesday. HC Kyle Shanahan called Garcon doubtful for Week 8. Trent Taylor should benefit from his absence.

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. He also missed Thursday practice and may be out for Week 8. If Breida can’t play, look for Raheem Mostert to see the majority of the touches in a great matchup against the Cardinals (No. 32 in RB aFPA).

49ers RB Matt Breida Did not practice Wednesday

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Matt Beida (everything) was being held out of practice today.

Fantasy Impact:

Breida has spent more time in the trainer's room than at home this season. It's too bad, too, because when healthy, he has been dynamic and productive, looking the part of an offensive centerpiece all the while. Be sure Raheem Mostert is owned in your league and keep an eye on practice reports the rest of the week.

49ers RB Matt Breida re-injured ankle vs. Rams

NBC Sports Bay Area - [Full Article]

After the 49ers' close 33-30 loss to the Packers last week, Matt Breida said he would have to be “in a wheelchair to not go.” He ended the evening in Green Bay with 14 carries for 61 yards.

It was a different story Sunday in the lopsided 39-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. On the first play, Breida aggravated his ankle injury and had to come out of the game. The team’s medical staff taped both of his ankles, and he returned. On his first carry after re-entering, Breida lost a fumble.

He finished the day with a modest five carries for 15 yards -- his lowest output of the season.

Related players: Raheem Mostert, Alfred Morris

Fantasy Impact:

As the story led with, Breida might have to get healthier before returning to the field. HC Kyle Shanahan said Breida has done a good job recovering during the week but may have to consider letting him heal before playing again. Mostert and Morris would see an increase if Breida misses time. Mostert rushed for 59 yards and had four catches for 19 yards.

49ers WR Marquise Goodwin (hamstring, quadricep) took full practice reps all week. He was removed from the injury report but picked up a hamstring injury at some point this week. He should be fine to face the Rams, who are really struggling at corner.
