MRI on Jerryd Bayless' knee revealed a bruise and he may rejoin the team Monday in Philadelphia.
The Celtics dodged a bullet with this latest news, although a healthy Bayless will not change the fact that the Celtics are one of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference. There is a chance Bayless could return to a reserve role on Monday, but at this stage in the season there is no reason to rush him back if he is not at 100 percent health. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
RB Carlos Hyde (foot) did not practice on Thursday.
Shaun Draughn will likely get his third straight start in the place of Carlos Hyde this week who didn't practice Thursday. Hyde has not done much at practice since he broke his foot and I'm not sure we will see much of him going forward. No need to risk anything with the 49ers not making any sort of playoff noise.

Eric Weddle (groin) is not practicing on Thursday.
The Chargers have been disappointing this season but Eric Weddle continues to play great for the Chargers defense. Unfortunately, Weddle missed Thursday's practice due to a groin injury. Weddle is the Chargers leading tackler and the secondary would miss him dearly if he can't play in Week 12. Analysis: James Grande
