It’s an exhaustive list for both sides this week, but that’s to be expected with only three days of rest. With Patrick Lewis out, the Seahawks called back Lem Jeanpierre to fill in at center. He’ll likely start. Jordan Hill may need a couple more weeks to heal, while the team expects Marcus Burley back next week. Who’d have thought we’d be saying the Seahawks need the depth at the cornerback position? Tye Smith will play, but I don’t expect him to be a huge factor coming off a multi-week injury in his rookie year. 
One name that doesn’t appear on the injury report: Paul Richardson. The team is taking a cautious approach as the speedy wideout returns from an ACL tear. He’ll be eligible to play next week, but Pete Carroll has said there’s no point in rushing him back. 
As for the Niners, Anquan Boldin and Carlos Hyde are both expected to play at less than 100%. Boldin is coming off consecutive 100-yard games.
