Avoids injury report
Sanu (knee) wasn't listed on the 49ers' injury report Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Sidelined since Week 9 due to a knee sprain, Sanu was activated from injured reserve Wednesday and avoided the injury report entirely following his first official practice since being activated. While Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk occupy the top two spots on the team's depth chart at wide receiver, Sanu will contend with Jauan Jennings for any snaps that linger at the position in Sunday's NFC Championship Game at the Rams. In eight appearances this season, Sanu recorded 15 catches (on 24 targets) for 177 yards and no touchdowns.
