Some notes

  • On Friday, wide receiver Rashee Rice (ankle) and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) — both limited participants on Thursday — were upgraded to full participants on Friday. Both are good to go for Sunday’s game.
  • Left guard Joe Thuney (pectoral) did not practice again. He has now been designated as out for the Super Bowl. We expect that Nick Allegretti will take his place in the starting lineup.
  • Running back Jerick McKinnon (groin) was limited for the third straight day. He was declared questionable for the game. Offensive tackle Prince Tega Wanogho (quad) was also listed as out for the Super Bowl. Both remain on the team’s injured reserve list.
  • “We’ve gotten everything done that we needed to get done,” Reid said after Friday’s practice, per the pool report from NBC Sports’ Peter King. “They’ve done good work. They’ve been focused in. I get to see it every day. That’s kind of their makeup, whether things are going good or not going good. It starts with Pat and Kelce and Chris Jones and [cornerback L’Jarius] Sneed. The players have maximized what we’ve given them as coaches, and they’ve done a nice job out here.”
  • Also from the pool report: In its final tuneup practice on Saturday, the team will have a mock game, then take a team photo and return to its hotel.
  • Four 49ers players — including tight end George Kittle (toe) and defensive tackle Arik Armstead (knee/foot) — were upgraded from limitedto full paritcipation on Friday. None carry an injury designation for the game. Defensive tackle Kalia Davis (who is still on injured reserve) was again a full participant but was listed as questionable for the game.
