Garcon (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The activity marks Garcon's first in an official practice since Oct. 31. Since that session, he posted a 3-56-1 line on five targets Week 9, which he followed up with back-to-back absences Weeks 10 and 12. He seems to be trending in the right direction, but optimally he'll build up to a full listing to clear up any question about his potential to play. If Garcon requires more time to recover and Marquise Goodwin (personal) remains away from the team, the 49ers will turn to Dante Pettis, Kendrick Bourne and Richie James at wide receiver for a second game in a row.

Garcon (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon didn't play in Weeks 8 and 10 and still isn't ready to practice or play after a Week 11 bye. Kendrick Bourne started both of the games Garcon missed, catching 11 of 16 targets for 104 yards in those two contests. Dante Pettis and Richie James are also candidates to handle some of the vacated snaps.

Garcon (knee) was held out of practice Thursday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

With back-to-back absences on the heels of the 49ers' Week 11 bye, Garcon isn't setting himself up to be active for the first time since Week 9. If Garcon is sidelined yet again Sunday at Tampa Bay, Kendrick Bourne likely would earn his third start of the season.

Garcon (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Unable to resume practicing after a Week 11 bye, Garcon is in danger of missing another game when the 49ers travel to Tampa Bay this weekend. Kendrick Bourne and Dante Pettis drew six targets apiece while filling in for Garcon during a Week 10 loss to the Giants.

Garcon (knee) is not present at Monday's practice, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon is expected to practice at some point this week after missing two of San Francisco's last three games with an unspecified knee injury. However, his return evidently will need to wait at least another day as neither Garcon or Marquise Goodwin (undisclosed) were spotted in the portion of practice available to the media. In their absences, Kendrick Bourne and Dante Pettis figure to get extended reps with the first-team offense.

Coach Kyle Shanahan expects every player on the 53-man roster, including Garcon (knee), to practice after the 49ers' Week 11 bye, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 49ers' next game is Nov. 25 in Tampa Bay, so Shanahan won't be cobbling together another injury report until Wednesday, Nov. 21. At that point, Garcon's activity level will forecast his odds to play for just the second time since Oct. 21. If he returns Week 12, his presence likely would push Dante Pettis down the pecking order, with Marquise Goodwin and Kendrick Bourne the other San Francisco wideouts to receive significant workloads.

Garcon (knee) will not play in Monday's game against the Giants, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon didn't practice all week, so this designation shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Look for some combination of Kendrick Bourne, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor to fill in for the veteran wide receiver with Marquise Goodwin serving as the primary receiving option.

Garcon (knee) did not practice Saturday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon's official status will likely be released later Saturday, but consider the veteran receiver questionable for Monday's game after failing to practice at all this week. Should Garcon miss any time, Kendrick Bourne, Richie James, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor would compete for the extra snaps.

Garcon (knee) didn't practice Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Banged up for most of the season, Garcon finally broke through with a 3-56-1 receiving line in last Thursday's blowout win over the Raiders. An absence Monday night against the Giants would free up snaps for some combination of Kendrick Bourne, Richie James, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor.

Garcon (knee) didn't take part in practice Thursday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

On the heels of a three-catch, 56-yard, one-touchdown performance last Thursday versus the Raiders, Garcon continues to tend to a knee injury, which forced an absence Week 8. Considering this last fact, his status should be monitored closely to learn if he'll be available to the 49ers offense Monday against the Giants.
