Another day at 49ers practice, another Braylon Edwards injury twist, a hard left turn from the back and forth the day before. And today on as the Braylon turns Edwards returned to practice at full speed and was a full participant. It now looks like Edwards will in fact return to action vs. his former team the Cleveland Browns on Sunday after all. Why do I keep getting this picture in my head of Jim Harbaugh sitting around laughing at everyone watching Braylon’s every move knowing the Browns are intently watching also?
Expect Edwards to have a similar role to the one Michael Crabtree played the first couple weeks after his injury. Crabtree did not start but played a healthy amount of snaps before returning to full time duty after returning to game speed. Edwards has missed the last 4 games following surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right knee.

It’s unclear whether Center Jonathan Goodwin will be able to play Sunday. He has been limited in practice to non contact drills as he gets over the effects of a concussion suffered vs. Detroit. Fullback Moran Norris returned to practice today participating in limited drills for the first time since sustaining a broken left fibula against the Dallas Cowboys. Norris is not expected to play for at least another couple weeks.
