49ers Injury Report

49ers injury report: Banks limited in practice with shoulder sprain

NBC Universal, Inc.

The 49ers received some good news Wednesday as they begin preparing for a Week 6 matchup with the Browns on Sunday in Cleveland.

Starting left guard Aaron Banks returned to practice after sustaining a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Backup running back Elijah Mitchell did not practice as he continues to work his way back from a knee injury that has sidelined him since Week 3, and a few key 49ers players received rest days.

Meanwhile, the Browns are dealing with a slew of injuries, including starting quarterback Deshaun Watson, who missed Cleveland's Week 4 matchup with the Baltimore Ravens due to a shoulder injury before the Week 5 bye.

If Watson is unable to play Sunday, the Browns reportedly will start PJ Walker over rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson.
