The 49ers’ Week 14 injury report is as full as they’ve had all season. There are six players designated either as out or doubtful, including defensive lineman Arik Armstead who is dealing with knee and foot injuries.

Armstead along with tight end Ross Dwelley and wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud will miss Sunday’s showdown with the Seahawks. Dwelley hurt his ankle against the Eagles and didn’t practice at all during the week. McCloud was out for Week 13 with a rib injury. He was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice, then a non-participant in the final two sessions of the week.

Javon Kinlaw and Kevin Givens figure to see more action with Armstead out. Charlie Woerner and potentially rookie TE Brayden Willis will fill in for any snaps Dwelley vacates. Deebo Samuel handled kickoffs in Philadelphia with McCloud out. Rookie WR Ronnie Bell fielded the punts.

There are also three players listed as doubtful. Right guard Spencer Burford has a knee issue, cornerback Darrell Luter is working through a hamstring and running back Elijah Mitchell has a knee injury. None of that trio participated in any practices during the week.

Burford’s absence would mean means a start at right guard for Jon Feliciano. RB Ty Davis-Price could be elevated from the practice squad to provide some depth if Mitchell misses the game, and it’s unclear which players would take over Luter’s special teams snaps.
