HERTFORDSHIRE, England -- Rookie linebacker Nick Moody has been cleared to return to practice after spending six weeks on the sideline with a broken right hand.

Moody, who sustained the injury after being injured on special teams in the season opener against the Green Bay Packers, was placed on injured reserve designated for return. He does not count against the 49ers’ 53-man roster limit, so the club would have to clear space to activate him.

The 49ers practiced with 64 players on Wednesday. Rookie receiver Quinton Patton (fractured right foot) is the only player on the 49ers’ roster who did not practice.

The 49ers traveled to London with their eight-player practice squad. Moody, receiver Mario Manningham, defensive lineman Tank Carradine and cornerback Eric Wright have been cleared to practice while remaining on reserve lists. None of those players is expected to be active for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Defensive linemen Justin Smith (shoulder), Ray McDonald (biceps) and Glenn Dorsey (hamstring) all returned to practice, as well as receiver Jon Baldwin, who is sat out Wednesday with an illness.

For the Jaguars, wide receiver Justin Blackmon, who sat out Wednesday’s practice with a hamstring strain, went through limited practice.
