SANTA CLARA – 49ers wide receiver Dante Pettis sustained a knee injury during the early portion of practice on Wednesday, leaving his availability for the game Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens in question.
Pettis sustained an injury to his left knee during a special teams drill and walked off the field for further evaluation, the Bay Area News Group reported.
Because he began practice, Pettis was listed as “limited” on the team’s injury report. The severity of his injury was not immediately known.

Running back Matt Breida (ankle) returned to limited practice after sitting out the past two games. Wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and Deebo Samuel (shoulder) were limted, too.
Left tackle Joe Staley (finger), edge rusher Dee Ford (hamstring) and tight end George Kittle (ankle, knee) did not practice. Kittle is expected to be available to play, while Staley and Ford are “day to day.”
Kicker Robbie Gould returned to full practice after missing the past three games with a right quadriceps strain.
Pettis has seen his role decrease in recent weeks. He played just two offensive snaps in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals and seven plays Sunday night in the 49ers’ 37-8 win over Green Bay.
Pettis ranks 10th on the team with 11 receptions for 109 yards and two touchdowns while seeing action in every game. As a rookie last season, Pettis had 27 catches for 467 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games (seven starts).
The 49ers deactivated veteran Marquise Goodwin against the Packers, but could be in line to suit up for Sunday’s game in Baltimore if Pettis misses time. Goodwin has 12 catches for 186 yards and one touchdown this season.
