Maintaining the top record in the NFC is going to be a real challenge for the San Francisco 49ers this week, because their latest injury report is downright horrendous.

Dee Ford and Joe Staley have both already been ruled out for their primetime showdown. Meanwhile, Matt Breida and Robbie Gould are listed as doubtful, and George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and Emmanuel Sanders are all questionable.

That's certainly not encouraging ahead of a tough clash with the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football.

It's as if every critical player on their team short of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is dealing with some sort of ailment. Seriously, even their kicker is doubtful.

Losing even one of Breida, Kittle or Sanders could be tough to overcome from an offensive standpoint, but losing all three would be a seriously decimating blow. The trio have combined for 1,405 yards from scrimmage this year.

Deebo Samuel has also emerged as a key piece on offense, tallying 246 receiving yards on just 16 catches over the last two weeks.

Kyle Shanahan will surely be hoping at least a couple of the aforementioned players will be available on Sunday night. But even so, the amount of notable names on San Francisco's injury report is staggering.
