Niners WR Bruce questionable to play vs. Bears

Veteran WR Isaac Bruce might not play in the 49ers’ Thursday night game against the Bears because of an ankle injury suffered in practice this week.

Bruce, who is third on the team with 20 receptions for 244 yards this season, is listed as questionable.

The Bears could be without rookie safety Al Afalava, who missed practice all week with a shoulder injury. Afalava also is listed as questionable.

As expected, the 49ers will be without CB Nate Clements (shoulder), RB Glen Coffee (concussion), DT Demetric Evans (shoulder) and OT Joe Staley (knee). The Bears declared S Kevin Payne (back), LB Pisa Tinoisamoa (knee) and RB Garrett Wolfe (back) as out.
