Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette hit the injury report Thursday and was limited in practice due to a foot injury.

His status for Tampa's Week 14 game with the San Francisco 49ers is uncertain.

Fournette, 27, missed Week 12 with a hip pointer before returning Monday with 16 total touches in Tampa Bay's win over the New Orleans Saints.

The 49ers are No. 1 in the NFL against the run, with 907 yards allowed and 3.4 yards per carry.

Fournette, in a co-op in the Bucs' backfield with rookie Rachaad White, has a team-high 511 rushing yards this season. He has 57 receptions for 347 yards and three touchdowns.

White emerged as a threat to Fournette's starting job during the 21-16 win over the Seattle Seahawks in London. Fournette scored a touchdown in the game, but after nearly missing the trip due to a passport issue, he was slowed by the hip injury.

White rushed 22 times for 105 yards.
