Trent Brown: 49ers’ right tackle participates Wednesday, Status Up-in-the-air for Sunday

San Francisco 49ers starting right tackle Trent Brown suffered a shoulder injury last Thursday on Thanksgiving. The injury kept Brown out of Week 12's ensuing match-up against the Seattle Seahawks. On Wednesday, the 49ers received positive news when Brown participated in a limited manner during practice.

According to Niners Wire's Chirs Biderman, both 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and Brown did not believe the offensive lineman would practice. Brown participated in positional and individual drills, and Biderman noted that it didn't seem like Brown would later put his shoulder at risk in team drills, despite not being given a blue non-contact jersey.

Brown's possible return for Sunday comes on the horizon of Jimmy Garoppolo's first start as a 49er. The 49ers travel to Chicago for an NFC showdown Sunday.

In other related news from Wednesday, the 49ers brought back center Tim Barnes. Barnes spent time with the team this past preseason. Bringing back Barnes may have been necessary due to backup tackle Eric Magnuson's trip to injured reserve. Current backup center Zane Beadles could be moved to tackle, and the 49ers would then need a backup center. Barnes gives them that. Shanahan spoke about the decision to add Barnes back to the 53-man roster:

"You only get to dress seven guys, sometimes eight, which will hurt another position," Shanahan said. "But, you try to dress seven guys on game day, and you need a starting tackle and a backup tackle, and you need a backup center. We know Barnes can do that."

The team also placed running back Raheem Mostert on IR, elevated running back Jeremy Nichols to the active roster from the practice squad and signed two players – linebacker Boseko Lokombo and cornerback Channing Stribling to the practice squad.

Here's a full list of participation for Wednesday:

Did not practice:

QB C.J. Beathard (knee, hip), DE Elvis Dumervil (not injury related), T Joe Staley (not injury related)


T Trent Brown (shoulder), S Adrian Colbert (thumb), TE George Kittle (ankle)

Full participation:

S Eric Reid (knee), DE Solomon Thomas (knee)

Brown's participation is a story to follow throughout the rest of Week 13.

Pro Football Focus ranked the top 25 offensive tackles in the NFL. For the San Francisco 49ers, the starters anchoring the offensive line are veteran Trent Williams, who replaces the retired Joe Staley after a trade from Washington, and third-year player and a former No. 9 overall draft pick, Mike McGlinchey. Only one of those two ended up on the ranking — Williams, who came in at No. 8. "In the wake of Joe Staley's retirement, the 49ers swooped in and replaced him with another top-10 tackle in Williams," wrote Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus.
