Among other players that have not had their status decided upon yet, guard Chris Chester has been dealing with his ankle issues recently. Head coach Shanahan said that his ankle is swollen and that his status is most likely doubtful.
Wide receiver Josh Morgan is also trying to return for Thursday's game, but he is still questionable at this point. Shanahan also updated the press on the status of offensive tackle Jammal Brown, dealing with his hip injury. Shanahan has said that while he has not started running again, he feels a lot better than he has felt.
