Spencer Burford misses practice with a knee injury and is questionable for Thursday night

Aaron Banks will be limited.
The 49ers announced that they’ve officially placed safety Talanoa Hufanga on the Injured Reserve List and signed Ben Bartch to a one-year deal.
Kyle Shanahan spoke to the media on Tuesday afternoon and said that right guard Spencer Burford isn’t practicing on Tuesday due to a knee injury. Shanahan said Burford would be fine if the game was on Sunday, but with a short week, Burford’s status for Thursday night is questionable.
Aaron Banks will be limited during Tuesday’s session as he recovers from turf toe. Banks has missed the 49ers previous two games. So, with both starting guards banged up, that would explain why the Niners poached Bartch from the Jaguars practice squad.
Burford is the only player who won’t practice today. If Burford can’t go and Banks can, Jon Feliciano would likely slide over to the right side. If both Burford and Banks miss, Bartch probably starts at left guard with Feliciano playing on the right side.
Here’s who will be listed as limited:
LG Aaron Banks (toe)
CB Shemar Jean-Charles (shoulder)
DT Javon Hargrave (thumb)
WR Ray-Ray McCloud (rib)
Shanahan said the team is still interested in signing cornerback Jason Verrett, but haven’t made the transaction yet.
