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.

''I think they're going to be fine,'' coach Jim Harbaugh said.

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

''It's possible. There's a chance, yeah. I don't like predicting,'' Harbaugh said.

All three players returned to practice last week. Rookie defensive tackle Quinton Dial came off that list before the game against the Titans.

Manningham made 42 receptions for 449 yards and one touchdown in 12 games and 10 starts last season before injuring his left knee in a loss at Seattle Dec. 23. He underwent reconstructive surgery to repair torn anterior cruciate and posterior cruciate ligaments.

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