San Francisco 49ers WR Quinton Patton returned to practice today. However, he did so in a blue non-contact jersey. That means that he has been cleared for non-contact football activity. The 49ers receiver is currently in the league mandated concussion protocol after suffering the injury to the head on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
Below are the Thursday practice participation reports for both the 49ers and the Bears. The two teams will play on Sunday in Chicago.
