But the team has not ruled out the possibility of having left tackle Tyron Smith (ankle) or running back Felix Jones (knee), both of whom were listed as questionable on today’s 13-player injury report. Leading rusher DeMarco Murray (sprained foot), who has missed the last five games, was listed as doubtful and is not expected to play.
Other players ruled out for Thursday’s game include center Phil Costa (ankle) and defensive lineman Sean Lissemore (ankle). Joining Murray as doubtful for Thursday’s game is center/guard Ryan Cook (knee).
Players listed as questionable, along with Smith and Jones, include nose tackle Jay Ratliff (groin), safety Danny McCray (hip) and safety Charlie Peprah (concussion).
Cornerback Mike Jenkins (back), tight end John Phillips (ankle) and fullback Lawrence Vickers (knee) were listed as probable.
