Wilson (ankle) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Wilson was expected to be limited Wednesday, but with back-to-back DNPs so far this week, he appears to be trending in the wrong direction. Per Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News, Wilson even departed Thursday's session and went indoors after team stretches. In the end, Friday's practice report may provide a sense of whether or not Wilson has a chance to play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game at the Rams.

Wilson (ankle) was held out of practice Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Analysis: Per Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, coach Kyle Shanahan listed Wilson as limited on the 49ers' pre-practice report, but the running back ended up logging no activity to begin the week of prep. Wilson is tending to a low-ankle sprain that he sustained on the opening kickoff of the team's divisional-round win in Green Bay. He'll have two more chances to put himself in a position for his typical special-teams role ahead of Sunday's NFC Championship Game at the Rams.

Garoppolo (thumb) practiced fully Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Analysis: Since sitting out Week 17 due to a sprained thumb on his throwing hand, Garoppolo has led the 49ers to three consecutive wins, but he was banged up in the team's playoff opener at Dallas, emerging with a right shoulder sprain that impacted his practices reps last week. The second issue isn't showing up on the injury report this week, and neither issue is impacting his activity level on the field. As he prepares to face the Rams for a third time this season Sunday in the NFC Championship Game, Garoppolo's previous two matchups with L.A. resulted in 498 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions on 74.5 percent passing.

Wilson (ankle) will be a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Wilson has played just three snaps on offense through the first two weeks of the playoffs, and he suffered a low-ankle sprain while covering a kickoff in the divisional-round win over Green Bay. Coach Kyle Shanahan suggested Wilson could still play against the Rams this Sunday, a notion supported by the limited practice Wednesday.

Kittle isn't listed on the 49ers injury report ahead of their NFC Championship Game matchup with the Rams on Sunday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Kittle was limping toward the end of Sunday's divisional-round win over the Packers, but both he and Deebo Samuel (leg) have avoided the injury report for the NFC title game, giving QB Jimmy Garoppolo all his key receiving options. Kittle caught four of six targets for 63 yards in the 13-10 win over Green Bay last week, ending a four-game streak with fewer than 30 receiving yards. That includes a 10-yard dud against the Rams in Week 18, though Kittle did put up 5-50-1 on seven targets in the first matchup between the divisional rivals (Week 10).
