This news come straight from coach Kyle Shanahan. Wilson was excelling in his opportunity as the team's primary back prior to suffering a high-ankle sprain. He accumulated 112 yards and three touchdowns before exiting. This means he will join fellow running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) on the IR. As a result, Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty will be the top remaining backs heading into Week 8.
Webster picked up a hamstring injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, but it apparently wasn't very serious. The 24-year-old cornerback should be good to go moving forward, but his role is yet to be determined with Emmanuel Moseley (concussion) and Dontae Johnson (groin) still battling injuries.
Harrell, currently on San Francisco's practice squad, will be eligible for reinstatement Friday, Nov. 6. With veteran Jordan Reed (knee) expected to miss six to eight weeks, the team opted to sign Daniel Helm from Tampa Bay's practice squad.
Harris will return to team activities, and, considering the 49ers' secondary has a serious injury bug, there's a reasonable chance he gets elevated for Week 5.
Samuel suffered another lower-body injury in Sunday's 33-6 thrashing of the Patriots, and coach Kyle Shanahan said his starting wideout will "miss some time," Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports. Taylor has been relegated to special teams duties ever since Samuel returned from his first stint on IR, but the traditional slot man should resume his previous role for however long his teammate is forced to sit out. Jimmy Garoppolo has looked healthy and productive over his last two games, so Taylor could pop up in deeper PPR formats with an expanded role.
The 49ers will be without Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) as well, and Tarvarius Moore is expected to cover for him at free safety. Harris has only played 48 defensive snaps this season, but he played plenty on defense over the previous two seasons, collecting 74 tackles over 21 games.
The 49ers turned in a performance reminiscent of its run to the Super Bowl in 2019 where the ground game and defense dominated the opponent so effectively that they barely needed to pass. This game script affected Bourne the most, as he was left without a reception for the first time this season despite being on the field for 45 percent of the team's offensive snaps. Bourne -- who has been serving as the team's slot man in recent weeks -- should return to the starting lineup against the Seahawks in Week 8 after coach Kyle Shanahan announced that Deebo Samuel (hamstring) will "miss some time" after sustaining yet another lower-body injury Sunday.
The 26-year-old missed the past two games with the high-ankle sprain, and the early outlook for Week 8 doesn't appear much-improved. Alexander will need to progress to some level of practice participation in the next couple days to have a chance of suiting up Sunday in Seattle.
Woerner played a part-time role during his four-year collegiate tenure at Georgia, mostly seeing utilization as a lead blocker. Due to Woerner's bulk (6-foot-5, 244 pounds) and willingness to embrace contact, he has a shot at earning a role as a blocker in the run game for San Francisco.
Mullens' two-interception performance against the Eagles in Week 4 has led to his descent on the depth chart, and he may not even end up active versus the Dolphins. The 25-year-old has impressed on the field in the past, particularly back in 2018 when he started eight contests. Mullens could still end up reclaiming the No. 2 role from Beathard at some point later this season.
Kinlaw was selected by the 49ers with the 14th overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft. They took him with the same pick they got from the Colts in exchange for star defensive tackle DeForest Buckner. The rookie certainly has big shoes to fill, but he's a much more affordable option than Buckner for San Francisco right now. The South Carolina product checks in at 6-foot-5, 324 pounds, and he figures to start right away on the line.
Taylor was added to the practice squad at the end of September and was elevated as an extra player for Week 4, and he'll now join the active roster in a longer-term capacity. The 30-year-old appeared in nine games last year for Seattle and had 22 tackles and three passes defensed.
Coach Kyle Shanahan expressed optimism that the veteran lineman would be able to play Sunday, and it appears that optimism was well placed. Williams should take up his usual starting post at left tackle for San Fran.
The transaction kicks off a 21-day window for Reed to be evaluated at practice, in which the 49ers can decide whether to fully activate him or allow the veteran tight end to revert to IR. When fully recovered from his sprained left knee, Reed stands to resume handling a key backup role behind George Kittle.
Garland was the 49ers' interim center while Weston Richburg recovered from kneecap surgery, and now both will be sidelined. Richburg is eligible to return Week 7 against the Patriots, but it's unclear if that will happen. On the other hand, Garland can't return until Week 10 at the earliest. Hroniss Grasu is expected to start at center until one of the two gets healthy.
Flynn spent the entire 2018 season on injured reserve. He'll be able to sign with any other team if he clears waivers.
Skule suffered a bruise on his leg during Sunday's win over the Packers, but it looks as though he's already returned to full health. With Joe Staley (finger) still not practicing, Skule could be called upon to draw another start at left tackle against the Ravens on Sunday.
Gould was finally given an opportunity to hit multiple field goals in a game for the first time since Week 3. The 37-year-old did miss his first PAT of the year, but the fault should be placed on the blocking unit who allowed a defender through to block the kick. The 49ers' offense has picked things up over the last couple weeks, which bodes well for Gould's scoring opportunities heading into a favorable matchup against the Seahawks on Sunday.
Samuel strained his hamstring during Sunday's victory over the Patriots. Coach Kyle Shanahan indicated following the game that he was expected to miss "some time," which makes this news relatively unsurprising. His expected absence means there will be more opportunities for Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne and even Trent Taylor in the passing game.
Starting Sunday against the Patriots, San Francisco has a stretch of three games in a 12-day span, and based on Shanahan's comments, it doesn't appear that Sherman will be available for any of those contests. Instead, the 49ers are more realistically hoping that Sherman will be ready to play after the team's Week 10 bye. Sherman has been sidelined since straining his calf in the 49ers' season-opening loss to the Cardinals.
Jones suffered an eye injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. It's possible he didn't return because the game was already out of hand, but he's apparently back to full health nonetheless. The 2017 sixth-round pick is expected to start at defensive tackle Sunday versus the Rams, and he'll look to build on the two sacks he's registered through five games.
Hasty gashed the Patriots for 6.3 yards per carry and got an increase in opportunites after Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) left the game with an injury. Wilson Jr. joins Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) in the training room and could open the door for Hasty to take on a featured role for next Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks. Coleman could return for that game, but he's been on injured reserve for a month and seems unlikely to play a major role even if he is activated.
The 26-year-old was waived by San Francisco with a non-football illness in July, but he'll receive another chance with the organization. Henry has appeared in only 17 games since being drafted by the Ravens in the fourth round of the 2016 draft, and he hasn't seen game action since 2018.
Williams will be eligible to play as soon as he's removed from IR, which could be as soon as Sunday in Seattle if he impresses in practice this week. The cornerback last suited up in Week 4, and Williams has been recovering from a sprained ACL since.
Armstead was sidelined with a minor back injury earlier in training camp, but he has fully recovered in time for the start of the regular season. The 2015 first-round selection is coming off of his best season as a pro (54 tackles and 10 sacks), and was rewarded with a five-year contract extension this offseason. Armstead will serve as an every-down lineman both on the interior and exterior of a loaded defensive line in 2020.
Tomlinson sufferd a torn MCL in Week 17 last season, but he started both the second and third preseason contests for San Francisco. The 27-year-old started 31 of 32 games for the 49ers over the past two seasons and will resume his starting role in 2019.
Compton started five games for the Jets last season before landing on injured reserve in late December. He'll likely provide depth in San Francisco, though he could have a shot to compete for the starting job at right guard after Mike Person was released earlier Thursday.
Coleman will be eligible to resume practicing without counting against the 53-man roster immediately. The 49ers will thus have 21 days to decide whether to fully elevate Coleman or allow him to return to season-ending IR. With Jeff Wilson (ankle) expected to hit IR this week, and Raheem Mostert (ankle) set to miss at least a few more games, Coleman will join a backfield consisting of Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty once he's fully cleared. If Coleman is able to return in time for Sunday's game in Seattle, he could have the immediate opportunity to handle a key role.
Teams rarely if ever carry more than one fullback, and San Francisco already boasts arguably the best starter in the game at that position in Kyle Juszczyk, so it's no surprise that Hokit was unable to secure a spot on the team's 53-man roster.
The same is true for cornerback Richard Sherman (calf), who is also on IR. Ford can safely be ruled out of San Francisco's next three games, which occur in a 12-day span starting Sunday against New England, but a slightly faster than expected recovery could see him suit up against the Saints in Week 10.
This is huge news for the veteran, as he's been forced to miss the past two games with the nagging groin injury. The secondary for the 49ers is only getting healthier, as Johnson has fully returned, with K'Waun Williams (knee) nearing a return soon also. Now that Johnson appears healthy enough to play, expect him to handle a rotational role at cornerback for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
There's still no clear timeline for his return, but a quick recovery would help with the 49ers' depleted depth at defensive end. However, it looks like it may take at least a few more weeks before Blair is ready to return. Over the previous two seasons, Blair recorded 57 tackles and 8.5 sacks through 25 games.
Motley signed with the 49ers two weeks ago because of a slew of injuries in San Francisco's secondary, but he wasn't active for either of the two games. The 49ers appear to be getting healthy and opted to let Motley go. The undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma could land on the team's practice squad if he clears waivers.
Despite the lopsided scoreline, Kittle didn't play a huge role in building his team's lead as he was mostly limited to short gains. He tied for the team lead in targets but finished third in receiving yards as the ground game took center stage for the majority of the second half. Kittle remains a central figure in the 49ers offense and could be leaned on much more heavily in next Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks.
The 49ers' defense has been ravaged by injuries this season, but they were in vintage 2019 form Sunday, and Warner played a large role in the stellar performance. The 23-year-old leads the team with 57 tackles, and he already set a new career high with two interceptions through seven games. Warner remains a solid IDP option heading into a huge division matchup against Seattle on Sunday.
Richburg is currently on the mend from a knee injury, but the team also disclosed that he underwent offseason shoulder surgery, which reportedly "really set him back." San Francisco has yet to reveal a detailed timetable for his return.
This was always going to be the likely designation for the speedy running back as reports earlier in the week insinuated an IR stint was on the horizon. Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty were a factor following Mostert's injury in Week 6, but it remains to be seen if a backfield-by-committee will be in order Sunday, or if McKinnon will take over as the lead back similar to what we saw earlier this season. Perhaps complicating matters further is the status of Jeff Wilson (calf) who remains questionable for the matchup against the Patriots, although no practice-squad RB callup certainly seems to be a positive step in regards to Wilson's status. In any case, Mostert will be eligible to return off injured reserve in Week 10 against the Saints, although it's entirely possible given Mostert's injury history this year the 49ers could simply choose to activate its star running back after the Week 11 bye.
The 24-year-old was waived by San Francisco over the summer with a non-football injury designation, but he's now healthy and will join the team's practice squad. Finke signed on as a UDFA in April after totaling 90 receptions for 1,027 yards and six touchdowns in his final two seasons at Notre Dame.
Helm cleared waivers Wednesday after he was cut by the team a day earlier, and the team elected to keep him in-house. The 25-year-old made his NFL debut in last week's win over the Rams, so he'll add nice depth and familiarity to the tight end depth chart on the practice squad.
Bosa was one of a number of 49ers to suffer injuries of varying severity last Sunday against the Jets, but only his and Solomon Thomas' (torn ACL) were season-enders. Once the procedure is complete, the 49ers likely will have a better idea of his recovery timeline, but they are hopeful Bosa will be healthy by Week 1 of the 2021 campaign. For the rest of this season, though, the team's pass rush will be led by Arik Armstead, Dee Ford (back), Kerry Hyder, Dion Jordan and Ezekiel Ansah.
McGlinchey attempted to tough out the knee injury early last season before undergoing arthroscopic surgery on Oct. 9 and missing four games. He returned and played out the string through the 49ers' Super Bowl run, after which he presumably had the second procedure. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, only players in recovery mode could step foot at team facilities, and McGlinchey appears to have taken advantage, calling himself a "much more functional athlete and stronger football player," per Lombardi.
Flannigan-Fowles ended his first professional season on the 49ers' practice squad while tending to an undisclosed injury. The 23-year-old is healthy again and will get another chance to make the 53-man roster in 2020. If he's able to secure a spot, Flannigan-Fowles will likely contribute mostly on special teams.
Cyprien had a chance to make the team after an impressive tryout earlier in the offseason, but the veteran safety ultimately failed to secure a roster spot.
Tom Pelissero of NFL Network first reported that the two sides agreed on a trade Oct. 21, but the deal wasn't finalized until nearly a week later. Willis was inactive for the Jets' loss to the Bills over the weekend as a result, but he should be eligible to contribute for the 49ers in the club's Week 9 matchup with the Seahawks. With the 49ers currently stashing three defensive ends on injured reserve, Willis will provide some much-needed depth on the edge.
The 31-year-old was confirmed to have suffered a torn biceps earlier in the week, so it's no surprise he was placed on injured reserve. Ansah is eligible to rejoin the active roster after missing three games, but he'll likely be sidelined for the rest of the season.
Coleman appeared in line to compete for a reserve tackle position in San Francisco before announcing his decision to opt out.
Moore has played almost exclusively on special teams this year, so his upcoming starting gig could be quite an adjustment. The third-year safety out of Southern Mississippi did start three games to begin the 2019 season and registered 14 tackles and a pass breakup.
Cracraft was one of four wideouts to be let go over the weekend, as the 49ers decided to keep six receivers on the active roster. The NFL journeyman has a couple seasons' worth of experience in the league, which could help him latch on to a new team if the opportunity becomes available.
Jordan served a 10-game suspension last season and didn't make much of an impact when the Raiders signed him, as he recorded just five tackles over seven games. He was afforded plenty of opportunities, too, averaging 25.1 defensive snaps per contest.
Williams' injury is unclear in nature, but it's seemingly serious enough to have landed him on injured reserve Saturday. The 28-year-old was competing for a depth role in the Niners' receiving corps, but now he'll have to focus on getting healthy and finding a new opportunity elsewhere.
Thomas joins fellow starting defensive lineman Nick Bosa (knee) on injured reserve with a season-ending injury. The 2017 first-round pick will undergo surgery in the near future, and barring any setbacks in his recovery, he should be on track for 2021 without issue. The 49ers signed Ezekiel Ansah to a one-year deal and promoted Dion Jordan to the active roster in corresponding moves.
Garoppolo was benched during this past Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, as he performed poorly and the game quickly got out of hand. Beathard entered in his place and completed nine of 18 passes for 94 yards and a touchdown. Garoppolo is still dealing with an ankle injury, and that could've played a role in his disappointing outing, but coach Kyle Shanahan has no plans to bench him. Beathard has proven himself as the clear No. 2 quarterback ahead of Nick Mullens, so he'll be the next man up in case things go off the rails again Sunday.
The 25-year-old missed the past two games with the hamstring injury and was questionable for Week 5, but he's good to go versus Miami. Witherspoon should be heavily relied upon with Richard Sherman (calf) and K'Waun Williams (knee) on injured reserve, while Emmanuel Moseley (concussion) and Dontae Johnson (groin) are inactive.
Nzeocha has played in every game this season but logged all but three snaps on special teams. The 30-year-old linebacker will need to sit out at least three games before returning to action.
Street tore his right ACL during the 2018 pre-draft process, resulting in no games played as a rookie and arthroscopic surgery in August 2019 to address tendinitis. The fourth-round pick ultimately has played just three contests, with four tackles on his career ledger. He'll look for better injury luck in 2020.
The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but his absence from practice is a hit to the receiving depth of the 49ers. The 2020 seventh-round pick has resided on the practice squad for the entire season to this point.
White was promoted to the active roster for Week 6 against the Rams but has since been sent back to the practice squad. He logged seven snaps on special teams in the victory.
Barrett spent three games with the team and served as necessary depth at defensive end, recording two tackles in that stretch. The 49ers likely need to clear up roster space to address the concerning injury bug in their backfield, so Barrett was ultimately let go. If he clears waivers, Barrett could secure a role on the team's practice squad.
The third-year tight end saw some extra opportunity with Jordan Reed (knee/ankle) leaving the game on two separate occasions, the second time for good in the second half. George Kittle (knee) is likely to return for a Week 4 Sunday night matchup against the Eagles, but Dwelley could operate as his primary backup if Reed remains sidelined.
Al-Shaair was picked up by San Francisco after a serious knee injury caused him to go undrafted out of Florida Atlantic. The 22-year-old cracked the 53-man roster out of camp, and showed enough to the coaching staff to stick around for the entire campaign. Al-Shaair is under contract for two more years, so he will compete for a backup role behind projected starters Kwon Alexander, Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw.
Garoppolo averaged a healthy 11.1 yards per attempt while completing an impressive 80 percent of his passes. He committed two turnovers in the first half, including one on a heave to the end zone just before halftime, though his team took a 20-point lead into the break thanks to a dominant performance by the ground attack. It wasn't quite the return to Foxboro that Garoppolo imagined from a personal perspective, but he came away with another win nonetheless. He was coming off a stellar three-touchdown performance in his previous game and will look to get back on track next Sunday against the Seahawks.
Aiyuk led the team in targets and receptions while posting the highest yardage total of his young career. He broke off a season long gain of 35 yards and made several other splashy plays against a notoriously tough Patriots secondary. Aiyuk's production has varied from week to week this season but it's clear he has the ability to be a difference maker in the 49ers offense and he'll have a good chance to add to his numbers next Sunday against a beatable Seattle secondary.
Walker has been on the 49ers' practice squad this season, and he's been elevated to the active roster twice. The 27-year-old linebacker now has some security on the 53-man roster. He likely won't play much on defense barring an injury, but it's noteworthy that Kwon Alexander is dealing with an ankle injury. If Alexander misses time, Walker could log a handful of snaps.
The 49ers were concerned that Hurd's knee injury was a torn ACL, and those fears were confirmed by the wideout's agent, Doug Hendrickson. This is unfortunate news for the football club and those in the fantasy realm who were excited to see how the versatile 6-foot-4 receiver would integrate into coach Kyle Shanahan's offensive scheme after missing the entire 2019 season due to a back injury. Hurd will undergo surgery in a couple of weeks, effectively ending his 2020 season before it could get going. Shanahan confirmed that the prospect "will be back next year." In the meantime, Trent Taylor, Dante Pettis and the recently-signed Jaron Brown will likely compete for snaps behind Kendrick Bourne, Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel (foot) when the latter returns.
The 49ers continue to be dealt blow after blow each week in terms of key players going down to injury, and this week it struck yet another 100-yard rusher in Wilson. It sounds like the fill-in starter will miss multiple weeks, opening the door for McKinnon -- who disappointed in what looked to be his game to shine -- moving forward. Head coach Kyle Shanahan mentioned that he was trying to give McKinnon some rest after being used heavily in recent weeks and also dealing with a rib injury, but it sounds like he's ready to turn back to the veteran as a starter moving forward. Undrafted rookie JaMycal Hasty shined in garbage time Sunday (nine carries for 57 yards), and also figures to be in the mix until Raheem Mostert (ankle) returns from injured reserve. Based on Shanahan's comments, we have to assume McKinnon will officially be named the starter for a key division matchup against the Seahawks on Sunday, with Hasty also sharing the workload.
The 29-year-old entered Week 7 with only three carries for 18 yards all season, but he was more involved in the run game versus New England. Juszczyk could continue to see more involvment with Tevin Coleman (knee) Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson (ankle) sidelined, but he's unlikely to enter fantasy relevance. Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty should handle most of the backfield touches for the 49ers.
Unless Thompson reaches an injury settlement with the 49ers, he won't play in the 2020 campaign. It's still unclear what kind of injury the 26-year-old wideout is battling, but if it's not severe, he could have another chance at an NFL roster this season.
The 2018 second-round pick will be on the sideline for the third straight contest. Coach Kyle Shanahan said earlier in the week the team and made and fielded calls about potentially trading Pettis, per Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, so it's not a major surprise to see him a healthy scratch. Richie James will serve as the depth wideout Sunday behind the usual contributors.
The 29-year-old picked up the injury during practice last week and sat out Sunday's win over the Patriots. Ward likely will need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a chance of retaking the field this weekend.
Taylor is working his way back from an ACL tear suffered back in December. He could contribute as a depth option along the defensive line when back to full health.
The 25-year-old picked up the injury during Sunday's win over the Patriots. James has mostly contributed in the return game since returning from injured reserve for Week 6.
The 29-year-old has played a significant role up front for San Fran this season, and he did so again Sunday by playing 47 of 62 defensive snaps. Hyder has 18 tackles (10 solo) and 2.5 sacks through four games.
Tartt missed the Week 7 win over New England due to the groin issue and continues to battle the injury. The 28-year-old likely will need to practice in some capacity by the end of the week to have a chance of suiting up this weekend in Seattle.
Kwon Alexander (ankle) was unable to go, opening the door for Greenlaw to move to weak-side linebacker and stay on the field for 100 percent of the defensive snaps. The second-year linebacker possesses the physical skills to put up big tackle numbers alongside Fred Warner. Assuming Alexander's high-ankle sprain keeps him out for the usual multi-week period, then Greenlaw quickly becomes an intriguing IDP option in the interim.
Moseley carried a questionable tag heading into Sunday's contest, but he's managed to fully clear the league's concussion protocol in time to suit up. The starting cornerback's return should provide a notable boost for San Francisco's secondary.
