Thursday Seahawks-49ers injury report; Branch back in action

With news coming out earlier today that Jason Jones is done for the season, the fact that defensive tackle Alan Branch, who injured his ankle Sunday and didn’t practice Wednesday, was back to practicing was good news.

Richard Sherman was not at practice, and his absence was listed as non-injury related. The team did not expand on that, but Sherman’s appeal of a four-game suspension is scheduled to be heard tomorrow according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
