Zack Greinke allowed three runs on eight hits and no walks while fanning 11 batters over 7.2 innings against the Reds on Tuesday.
Greinke improved to 8-1 following Tuesday's stellar performance while tying a season-high in the strikeout department (11). He is now sitting on a 2.18 ERA and 1.12 WHIP through his first 11 starts, while owning a ridiculous 76:14 K:BB over 66 innings. He will get to build on his hot start when he takes on the Pirates on Sunday. 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
