Manager Ned Yost does not expect Omar Infante (back) to play Saturday or Sunday, though he is feeling better.
Despite not being placed on the disabled list due to a back injury, the Royals continue to be cautious with Infante, who has been out of the starting lineup since Wednesday. Considering his condition is improving, expect Infante to make his return early next week. 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. Analysis: James Grande
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
