The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 18 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Several 49ers stars didn't suit up for the first practice of the week. Many of the names, like quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and guard Aaron Banks, aren't surprising.

Christian McCaffrey's name popped up on Monday's injury report from head coach Kyle Shanahan. The running back is dealing with what the coach called a "mild" ankle sprain and did not practice on Wednesday. The injury occurred on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders. Although, Shanahan wasn't sure exactly when it happened during the game.

Linebacker Dre Greenlaw sustained a back injury against the Raiders. He did not practice. The 49ers rested defensive end Nick Bosa and tackle Trent Williams.

Guard Aaron Banks has already been ruled out against the Cardinals due to knee and ankle sprains sustained against the Raiders.

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

Bayless on 49ers: I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan or Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla
Feb 18

The San Francisco 49ers' collapse in Super Bowl 58 has fueled skepticism from one controversial media personality, indicating a lack of trust in two key figures of the franchise. Skip Bayless is among those doubting quarterback Brock Purdy's capabilities, which isn't new information. Additionally, he questions head coach Kyle Shanahan's effectiveness. Bayless says he was confident that the Kansas City Chiefs would beat the 49ers because of superior coaching by Andy Reid and exceptional talent in quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With Steve Spagnuolo leading the Chiefs' defense, Bayless believes the result was inevitable. "I'm sorry. More than ever, I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan, and I don't believe in Brock Purdy," Bayless said on his FOX Sports podcast. "And I

Report suggests 2024 salary cap could near $250 million

By David Bonilla
Feb 19

Speculation surrounding the 2024 salary cap indicates that it might be in the area of $242 million. That's the number that salary-cap site has been working with, which, according to their estimations, puts the San Francisco 49ers about $12.38 over the projected cap. The team could obviously use more wiggle room to sign wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk to a long-term deal. San Francisco may need to either restructure the contracts of some high-priced stars or make some difficult roster decisions to make that happen. RELATED: Graziano: Salary cap situation may
