San Francisco 49ers DL DeForest Buckner (foot) didn't practice during this short week leading up to tomorrow's game against the Arizona Cardinals. He was injured during the 49ers' 24-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Buckner was the seventh overall selection in this year's draft.

CB Jimmie Ward (quad) continues to miss practice after suffering a quad injury against during Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. He is reportedly week-to-week. CB Rashard Robinson started in place of Ward on Sunday against the Cowboys and played very well. He earned the team's top grade for Week 4 from advanced statistics site Pro Football Focus.

LB NaVorro Bowman has not officially been placed on the Injured Reserve list, but will miss the remainder of the season with a torn Achilles.

Earlier today, it was reported that Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (concussion) would miss Thursday's game. He will not travel to Santa Clara with the Cardinals and the team will start Drew Stanton in his place.
