From all the reports yesterday of all the guys we could talk about, we dodged bullets. Bring up another name, and we dodged that bullet, too. If I can think of a third, we dodged that one as well.

OWINGS MILLS, Maryland – The 49ers sustained no long-term injuries during their three joint practices with the Baltimore Ravens, coach Jim Harbaugh said.

Offensive lineman Adam Snyder went down early in Sunday’s practice with an apparent knee injury. He was wearing two knee braces, which might have prevented a greater severity of injury.

“From all the reports yesterday of all the guys we could talk about, we dodged bullets,” Harbaugh said. “Bring up another name, and we dodged that bullet, too. If I can think of a third, we dodged that one as well. So it was a good day. We were moving targets yesterday.”

Snyder did not practice on Monday, but he walked out to the practice field without a limp to watch the final 90 minutes from the sideline.

Wide receiver Quinton Patton returned to practice Monday after leaving practice early Sunday due to unknown reasons. Linebacker Shayne Skov sustained an ankle sprain on Sunday, but is fine, too.

The 49ers did sustain a couple injuries in their Thursday exhibition game against the Ravens, however. Wide receiver Chuck Jacobs is out for the season with a torn ACL. Also, defensive lineman Lawrence Okoye is on crutches with a possible high ankle sprain.
