SANTA CLARA -- Center Daniel Kilgore and wide receiver DeAndre Smelter will be cleared to begin practice this week, 49ers coach Jim Tomsula said on Monday.
Kilgore opened the season on physically unable to perform after sustaining a broken left lower leg more than a year ago.
Smelter, a fourth-round draft pick, was on the non-football injury list after sustaining a torn ACL that ended his final season at Georgia Tech.
The 49ers have three weeks after the time both players begin practice to make a decision whether to activate them to the 53-man roster or place them on a season-ending injury list.
Kilgore started the first seven games for the 49ers last season before sustaining the fracture last season against the Denver Broncos. He underwent two surgeries and has a plate and 12 screws in his lower leg, he said. On Monday, he said he squatted 500 pounds in the weight room. He is scheduled to take part in the 49ers' walk-through practice on Monday.
Kilgore said it is probably unlikely he'll be active for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks but he hopes to be available to play on Nov. 29 against the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium.
