The 49ers had a more extensive injury report, as running back Christian McCaffrey (calf), running back Elijah Mitchell (groin) and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Monday that both McCaffrey and Mitchell were day by day, and that the former expects to play on Sunday. Wide receiver Debo Samuel and cornerback Ambry Thomas were among the participants with ankle injuries, while defensive end Charles Omenihu was limited.

Cincinnati Bengals (-1) at Kansas City Chiefs

For the Bengals, offensive guard Alex Capa (ankle) and left tackle Jonas Williams (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Neither player was active in the divisional round win over the Buffalo Bills. Linebacker Joe Bacchi (foot) and cornerback Trey Flowers (foot) were also some of the participants. Center Ted Karas was listed on the injury report with a knee injury, but was a full participant.

All eyes are on star quarterback Patrick Mahomes this week as he suffered a high ankle sprain in Saturday’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. In the good news for Chiefs fans, Mahomes was fully engaged. In Wednesday’s practice. Chiefs running back Jerick McKinnon was out with an ankle problem and linebacker Willie Gay Jr. He was a full participant with a toe injury. Wide receiver Mecole Hardman was a limited participant with a hip injury, and was the only Chiefs sidelined in practice.
