Tukuafu signed a contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Tukuafu, who had spent the previous two seasons as the Seahawks' top fullback, was released in advance of the season opener, only to be re-signed before Week 2, then released prior to Week 3. In his steed, Luke Willson (knee) assumed the majority of fullback duties for Seattle. However, Willson is currently on the mend from arthroscopic knee surgery and facing an uncertain timetable for a return. RB C.J. Spiller was released in order to make room on the active roster.

49ers FB Will Tukuafu (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

Tukuafu practiced on a limited basis this week despite suffering a sprained MCL in the 49ers' Divisional Round win. Barring a setback, he'll serve as Frank Gore's lead blocker for Sunday's NFC Championship.

49ers FB Will Tukuafu (knee) participated in Wednesday's practice, getting in a limited session.

It's an extremely good sign after Tukuafu went down in a heap in Sunday's win over the Panthers. Barring a setback, he's now on track to clear the way for Frank Gore against the Seahawks. If Tukuafu can't go, San Francisco will be forced to rely on some combination of Anthony Dixon and TE Vance McDonald.

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was "encouraged" by how FB Will Tukuafu (knee) was moving around on Monday.

Harbaugh didn't comment on Tukuafu's status for the NFC Championship Game, but it appears there's at least a slim chance he suits up. The Sacramento Bee reported Sunday evening the "early indications" were that Tukuafu suffered a sprained MCL. If that diagnosis holds, it's highly unlikely he'd be active in Seattle. That would leave Anthony Dixon and TE Vance McDonald to pave the way for Frank Gore.
