49ers linebacker Nick Moody practices for first time since Week 1 in preparation for Jaguars

San Francisco 49ers rookie linebacker Nick Moody returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since Week 1, when he went on injured reserve with the designation to return after breaking his hand.

Moody posted on his Twitter account, "Felt great to be back practicing." The 49ers (5-2) have won four straight heading into Sunday's game against the winless Jaguars (0-7) at Wembley Stadium.

Safeties Donte Whitner and Eric Reid practiced fully after each was hurt in Sunday's 31-17 victory at Tennessee — Whitner his knee, Reid an ankle.

Coach Jim Harbaugh said the Niners might activate another player from the reserve non-injury list, with wideout Mario Manningham, cornerback Eric Wright and rookie defensive tackle Tank Carradine closest to being ready.

Moody is a sixth-round draft pick who transitioned from playing safety.
