The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. On Wednesday, the team held its first of three full practices this week.

Defensive end Dee Ford (quadricep, hamstring) did not practice. Although, he took part in warmups. Ford hasn't had a setback. Holding him out of Wednesday's practice was just a precautionary move, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.


Tight end George Kittle also sat out practice. Unlike Ford, Kittle wasn't even on the field during warmups. The 49ers explained that the tight end is dealing with "ankle soreness" from Saturday's win over the Minnesota Vikings. Kittle is expected to be ready for Sunday's game against the Packers.


On Saturday, linebacker Kwon Alexander played in his first game since October 31, 2019, when he suffered a torn pectoral muscle. The defender was limited during Wednesday's practice.

Below are Wednesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Packers, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.
