Position Listing
DeAndrew White
News
DeAndrew White was an undrafted free agent. He is out to make every team that passed on him regret it.

Even the 49ers, who finally signed the wideout.

White is well on the way to doing that. He has been impressive ever since he stepped on the field for offseason workouts and has earned the praise from coaches and teammates.

"The type of person he is; he motivates himself," said wide receivers coach Adam Henry. "He has a little chip on his shoulder, and he bring it to the building each and every day."

White arrived at Alabama as one of the premier wide receiver prospects in the nation. He started over ballyhooed freshman Amari Cooper until a season-ending ACL injury impeded his progress. Cooper than starred while White faded into the background. The latter served as a starter last season, but managed just 40 catches for 504 yards.

He is now out to prove that the potential with which he arrived at Alabama will not go unfulfilled.

"I'm a hard-worker and ultra-competitive," he said. "I just can't wait for the opportunity to showcase my talent. I know what I want to achieve, and I know that I need to get better than what I've been doing. ... The NFL is not for everybody, but I feel like I'm at home; I feel like I belong here. I know I'm going to succeed. This is just the beginning."

Mike Purcell
News
Purcell got a surprise start at defensive end in place of the injured Glenn Dorsey (knee), finishing the game with three tackles (two solo) and his first career sack in the loss to the Cardinals.

It was generally expected that rookie Arik Armstead would slide into the starting lineup once Dorsey was ruled out for the season, but Purcell - a natural nose tackle - was given the nod. He played well in his first career start at defensive end, so he may continue to see time down the stretch.

NaVorro Bowman
News
Bowman (shoulder) finished the season strong with nine tackles (all solo) in Sunday's overtime win over St. Louis.

There was some concern heading into the season surrounding the health of Bowman and whether he would be able to bounced back from the horrific knee injury that held him out for the entirety of the 2014 season. He put those worries to rest in 2015, setting a new career-high in tackles (154) while also leading the entire league in that category as well. Bowman is under contract through the 2019 season, so he will continue to be the centerpiece in a San Francisco defense that will need more reinforcements this offseason. As long as he is healthy, he should be treated as one of the premier IDP options next season.

Garrison Smith
News
The Saints have cut defensive lineman Garrison Smith and offensive lineman DeMarcus Love from their practice squad and added offensive lineman Andrew Miller .

Smith and Miller are both rookies.

Garrett Celek
News
Celek has signed a four-year extension with the 49ers, CSN Bay Area reports.

Celek, who appeared in 11 games for the 49ers in 2015, while making eight starts, recorded 19 catches for 186 yards and three touchdowns in that span. In the aftermath of last season's trade of Vernon Davis, Celek should continue to see added opportunities in the San Francisco offense this coming season, though as a block-first type player, his fantasy upside is limited, with the likes of fellow TEs Vance McDonald, Blake Bell and Rory Anderson also on hand.

Bradley Pinion
News
The 49ers have signed the following draft picks to four-year contracts: Jaquiski Tartt , Eli Harold, Blake Bell, Mike Davis, DeAndre Smelter, Bradley Pinion, Ian Silberman, Trenton Brown and Busta Anderson, the team announced on Monday.

Tartt was selected in the second round out of Samford, where he amassed 277 tackles with six interceptions in his college career. Davis was selected in the fourth round and rushed for 2,440 yards and 22 touchdowns on 454 carries in his college career.

Jerome Simpson
News
Simpson (finger) is active for Sunday's game versus the Bengals, John Dickinson of 95.7 The Game San Francisco reports.

Entering the 49ers' list of ailing Friday with a finger injury, Simpson will nonetheless be available to offensive coordinator Geep Chryst. However, Simpson has earned only 66 offensive snaps across four games this season.

Jarryd Hayne
News
Hayne saw limited action in 2015, gaining 79 yards on 23 touches.

The former rugby league star burst onto the scene with a stellar preseason in which he gained 175 yards (7.0 YPC) while exhibiting his skills as a return man. The glow wore off quickly as Hayne was not able to replicate his success as a return man and was eventually waived and placed on the practice squad due to fumbling issues (three fumbles, one lost in six games games). He was eventually brought back up, where he gained 27 yards on nine carries. While this season didn't turn out to be a success story for Hayne, he will definitely be a project in the offseason, and could see touches in 2017 if he shows improvement.

Dylan Thompson
News
The 49ers have promoted Thompson from their practice squad to the team's active roster.

The 24-year-old is thus in line to serve as the 49ers' backup QB on Sunday against the Seahawks behind Blaine Gabbert, with Colin Kaepernick having been placed on IR by the team.

Anquan Boldin
News
Boldin is visiting the Redskins on Tuesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

There hasn't been much news regarding the 35-year-old Boldin, who did most of his damage out of the slot last season. Washington doesn't seem like a good fit, given that Jamison Crowder had an effective rookie season while working almost exclusively from the slot. Boldin does have plenty of experience playing on the outside, but Washington also has DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon on the roster. Shaky as the fit may seem, Boldin doesn't seem to be drawing much interest and may have to settle for a sub-optimal situation.

Joe Staley
News
The 49ers will have wideout Michael Crabtree Week 14 against the Raiders.

Crabtree came into the game listed as probable due to a knee injury. He was never really a threat to miss the contest. 

The team will have most of their probable players for the game. Chris Culliver, Bruce Ellington, Carlos Hyde, Stevie Johnson, Ray McDonald, Justin Smith and Joe Staley are all listed as active. All seven were considered probable.

Thad Lewis
News
Lewis signed a one-year deal with the 49ers, the Sacramento Bee reports.

Lewis - who has spent time with the Bills, Browns, and Eagles - has a 60.8 percent career completion rate and a 5:4 TD:INT ratio. In the likely event that the 49ers trade disgruntled quarterback Colin Kaepernick this offseason, then Lewis would immediately be in the mix for a backup role during training camp, assuming the team doesn't bring in another signal caller.

Shaun Draughn
News
Draughn has signed a one-year deal to remain with the 49ers, ESPN.com reports.

Draughn, who missed the final two games of the 2015 season with a knee injury, is thus slated to remain part of the 49ers' backfield in 2016, serving as a complement/depth option behind presumed top back Carlos Hyde.

Injury
Knee - Probable for start of season
Ray-Ray Armstrong
News
Raiders linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong hasn't made much of an impact during his first two seasons in the league. A lot of that stemmed from immature penalties, something coach Jack Del Rio said is starting to change, per ESPN.com.

“He’s really bought in to the idea of maturing and being more disciplined in his play. I think that if you bring some of the playmaking and some of the natural athletic ability that we like, some of the aggressiveness that we like. We’re just wanting to make sure that the maturity is there ... the accountability is there. I think he’s made great strides over this offseason in developing himself along those lines. That’s going to be important for us and important for him.”

Armstrong recorded 18 tackles and a forced fumble in 11 games last season.

Rory Anderson
No Updates
Aaron Lynch
News
Lynch finished the year with 42 tackles and a team-leading 6.5 sacks.

Lynch followed up his impressive rookie campaign with a small step forward in 2015. While he did see a slight bump in production, it still felt that there was room for more on a defense that lost many key starters this past offseason. A bout with several injuries could be to blame, but we would like to see more growth from the pass-rush specialist next season.

Colin Kelly
No Updates
Ian Silberman
News
The 49ers have signed the following draft picks to four-year contracts: Jaquiski Tartt , Eli Harold, Blake Bell, Mike Davis, DeAndre Smelter, Bradley Pinion, Ian Silberman, Trenton Brown and Busta Anderson, the team announced on Monday.

Tartt was selected in the second round out of Samford, where he amassed 277 tackles with six interceptions in his college career. Davis was selected in the fourth round and rushed for 2,440 yards and 22 touchdowns on 454 carries in his college career.

DeAndre Smelter
News
Smelter (knee) - who missed the entire 2015 season - joined the 49ers' offseason program and will have no restrictions, CSN Bay Area reports.

The 49ers expected Smelter to miss the entire 2015 season with an ACL injury when they drafted him, which is why they were able to nab a potential first-round talent way back in the fourth. With a full season to rehab, he joins the 49ers' offseason program with no restrictions due to his knee. The 49ers' leading receiver in 2015 - Anquan Boldin - is still a free agent, opening up the potential for Smelter to come in an make an immediate impact. There are several veteran receivers ahead of him on the depth chart, but if the 6-2 athletic receiver is anywhere close to as good as the 49ers were hoping he could be, then he should have no problem leapfrogging all of the incumbent wideouts. He is definitely a sleeper to keep an eye on as we get closer to the season.

Vance McDonald
News
McDonald caught three passes for 37 yards in Sunday's season finale against the Rams.

McDonald wasn't on the fantasy radar heading into the season, but he was given an opportunity in the second half of the season, accruing 262 yards and three touchdowns during a six-game stretch through weeks 12-17. He is clearly the most talented pass-catching tight end on the 49ers' current roster, but we will have to see if the team decides to add to the group in free agency or the draft this offseason before declaring McDonald a fantasy factor next year.

Jordan Devey
News
The 49ers traded tight end Asante Cleveland to the Patriots on Tuesday in exchange for offensive lineman Jordan Devey.

Cleveland appeared in six games as a rookie in 2014. He did not record a catch.

Devey, who was an undrafted free agent in 2013, appeared in seven games last season for New England. He made four starts.

Phil Dawson
News
Dawson agreed to a one-year deal with San Francisco, CSN Bay Area reports.

Dawson turned 41 in January and his range has never been better than average, but he remained a remarkably accurate kicker in 2015, making 24-of-27 attempts. If Chip Kelly sees to an uptempo offense of even modest success in San Francisco, Dawson should have a good number of field goal opportunities in 2016.

Corey Lemonier
News
The 49ers DST forced four turnovers for a second straight week and posted its third consecutive dominant performance in the Week 6 win over Arizona. San Francisco's defense also scored for the second straight week, this time on a safety by rookie linebacker Corey Lemonier.

Safety Eric Reid had an interception and a fumble recovery. Corner Carlos Rogers picked off Carson Palmer, too, and linebacker NaVorro Bowman recovered a fumble.

San Francisco gave up 403 total yards and allowed 5.2 yards per carry, but compensated with a slew of big plays. The 49ers DST has a good chance to stay  hot in Week 7 at Tennessee.

Carlos Hyde
News
Hyde indicated Wednesday that his surgically-repaired left foot has recovered to the point that he feels he would be ready to play in a game at this time if the 49ers had one, the San Jose Mercury-News reports. "My foot's feeling great. I'm ready to go." Hyde relayed Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the running back -- who missed the 49ers' final nine games last season with a stress fracture in his foot -- suggested that he shouldn't have much of an issue transitioning to new coach Chip Kelly's offense. "I'm already familiar with this type of offense," Hyde said. "I played it (at Ohio State), the up-tempo, no-huddle offense. I'm excited to be in it." Now that Hyde's foot (in his words) has "healed up just fine," the running back will look to approach the coming season in good health/fitness, and with that in mind, he has slimmed down to 225 pounds, which the report suggests is seven pounds lighter than he was last season. Assuming continued health, Hyde remains the 49ers' clear-cut top back, which leaves Shaun Draughn, DuJuan Harris, Mike Davis, Kendall Gaskins and Jarryd Hayne to jostle for slotting behind him in the team's 2016 backfield.

Injury
Foot - Probable for start of season
Tony Jerod-Eddie
News
Jerod-Eddie has signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract to remain with the 49ers, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Jerod-Eddie has played in all but one of the 49ers' games over the past three seasons, providing sound depth along their defensive line. Last season, he finished with 14 tackles and four passes defensed.

Je'Ron Hamm
News
Hamm was released by the Redskins on Tuesday.

Hamm, a 2014 UDFA, was only active for one game this season. The former college wideout has some upside as a receiving threat, and he could get another look with Washington in 2016.

Quinton Patton
News
Patton finished the year with 394 yards and one touchdown.

Patton never broke out in 2015, but he saw expanded usage in the season's final four weeks. During that span, he averaged 14.4 yards per catch. Again, nothing he did screams "player to watch" heading into next season, but there could be an opportunity for the third-year wideout with veteran Anquan Boldin heading for free agency.

Corey Acosta
News
The 49ers waived 10 players on Monday. They were K Corey Acosta, LB Steve Beauharnais, CB Mylan Hicks, T Sean Hooey, WR Mario Hull, WR Chuck Jacobs, WR Nigel King, LB Shawn Lemon, FB Trey Millard and DL Lawrence Okoye.

Additionally, the 49ers placed G/C Daniel Kilgore on the PUP list to start the season and WR DeAndre Smelter on the NFI list. The team also placed WR Dres Anderson and LB Desmond Bishop on injured reserve.

Marcus Cromartie
News
The 49ers announced several roster moves prior to Sunday's game against Seattle, per the team's official website. The team placed linebacker NaVorro Bowman (knee) and defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey (forearm) on the injured reserve list. In a corresponding move, San Francisco  promoted cornerback Marcus Cromartie and guard Andrew Tiller to the 53-man active roster from the team’s practice squad.
Joshua Garnett
No Updates
Arik Armstead
News
The 49ers signed first-round draft pick Arik Armstead , the team announced on Friday. 

The defensive lineman from Oregon was the 17th overall pick in the draft. With his signing, San Francisco has all of its draft picks under contract. 

Shayne Skov
News
The Buccaneers signed linebacker Shayne Skov to their practice squad. He was released by the 49ers last week.
Erik Pears
News
The 49ers and offensive lineman Erik Pears have reached an agreement on a two-year deal, a source told Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910AM in Arizona. Pears, 32, was with the Bills since 2010, starting in 56 of 57 games played in. He also showed versatility, lining up at right tackle and right guard during his stint with the Bills.
Dontae Johnson
News
Antoine Bethea is set to start for the 49ers this season at strong safety with Eric Reid entrenched at free safety. But the former doesn't know who their secondary mates will be and he's expecting quite a battle.

The team has no rookies at that position, but 2014 draftees Dontae Johnson, Kenneth Acker and Keith Reaser could be factors. Bethea says the competition has already begun.

"We've had a short minicamp and everybody's learning, so there are really no position, but when training camp comes, there's going to be a lot of competition, a lot of good competition," he told NFL.com. I'm excited to see it."

Torrey Smith
News
Smith (back) hauled in five catches (seven targets) for 61 yards in Sunday's overtime win over the Rams.

The five catches were Smith's highest total since his 6-catch, 120-yard performance in week 2. That stat goes to show what a disappointing first season it has been in a San Francisco uniform. Smith's big-play style never seemed to mesh with the 49ers' vanilla offensive gameplan this season, and he finished with less than 700 receiving yards for the first time in his career. With four more years left on his contract, the team will have to find a better way to incorporate their biggest free agent acquisition from last offseason. Maybe the new coaching regime will open up the playbook a little more for 2016 and beyond.

DeForest Buckner
News
The 49ers selected Buckner in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, seventh overall.

Although he doesn't have the profile of an annual double-digit sack threat in the NFL, this is still a great pick for San Francisco. Buckner is like a more developed, more talented version of former Oregon teammate Arik Armstead, who the 49ers picked in the first round a year ago. Like Arizona's Calais Campbell, Buckner should be a high-impact contributor as a 3-4 end. Thanks to his rare tackle production in college -- over 80 tackles each of the last two years -- Buckner projects as a potential impact IDP whenever he earns a three-down role.

Blake Bell
News
Bell finished his rookie campaign with 15 receptions (24 targets) for 186 yards.

Bell was buried on the depth chart early in the season, but a combination of Vernon Davis' departure and a losing season allowed San Francisco to showcase their fourth-round draft pick down the stretch. He responded by eclipsing 40 yards in three of the 49ers' last six games. Bell is still considered a project, so we may not see his full potential next season, but he should see more targets in 2016.

Nick Bellore
News
The 49ers announced on Friday that they have signed linebacker Nick Bellore to a two-year contract. 

Bellore spent the previous four years with the Jets, where he totaled 61 tackles. He's yet to start a game in his four-year career. Bellore played college football at Central Michigan. 

Kaleb Ramsey
News
The 49ers made several moves to trim the roster to 75 players Monday.

The team waived quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, safety D.J. Campbell, tight end Kevin Greene, running back Jewel Hampton, punt Colton Schmidt, linebacker Kion Wilson and wide receiver Devon Wylie, while also releasing wide receiver David Reed.

The team placed running back Marcus Lattimore, fullback Trey Millard, cornerback Keith Reaser and guard Brandon Thomas on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury List and linebacker NaVorro Bowman, tight end Garrett Celek and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey were placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List. Linebacker Blake Costanzo was released from the Injured Reserve list.

Daniel Kilgore
News
The 49ers waived 10 players on Monday. They were K Corey Acosta, LB Steve Beauharnais, CB Mylan Hicks, T Sean Hooey, WR Mario Hull, WR Chuck Jacobs, WR Nigel King, LB Shawn Lemon, FB Trey Millard and DL Lawrence Okoye.

Additionally, the 49ers placed G/C Daniel Kilgore on the PUP list to start the season and WR DeAndre Smelter on the NFI list. The team also placed WR Dres Anderson and LB Desmond Bishop on injured reserve.

Andrew Tiller
News
The 49ers have listed the following players as inactive for Saturday's Week 16 matchup against the Chargers: running back Carlos Hyde (ankle), wide receiver Steve Johnson (knee), cornerback Tramaine Brock (hamstring), linebacker Ahmad Brooks (thumb), quarterback Josh Johnson and guards Andrew Tiller and Joe Looney.

Hyde, Johnson and Brock were all ruled out for Saturday's game on the team's final report, but Brooks joins them on the inactive list after being deemed questionable. The team will have running back Frank Gore and wide receiver Michael Crabtree active for the game.

The 49ers are a 1-point favorite for the Saturday night showdown with the Chargers.

Eli Harold
News
Harold, who was instructed to get stronger this offseason, has put on 30 pounds and now weighs 270 pounds, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

The 2015 third-round pick played sparingly last season. GM Trent Baalke recommended that Harold get stronger this offseason, and he responded by packing on nearly 30 pounds of mass. In a 3-4 scheme, the 49ers could be looking at Harold as the eventual replacement to Ahmad Brooks at outside linebacker. He would serve as the run-stopping option opposite the pass-rush specialist Aaron Lynch.

Glenn Dorsey
News
Dorsey suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin.

Assuming the diagnosis is confirmed by the team, Dorsey would presumably be headed to IR, with his looming absence representing a big blow to the 49ers' defensive line.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for start of season
Kyle Nelson
News
Long-snapper Kyle Nelson has been re-signed by the 49ers to a four-year contract, per the team.

Nelson, a restricted free agent prior to re-signing, played in all 16 games last season. He added four tackles on special teams.

The 28-year-old has spent time with the Chargers and Redskins prior to signing with the 49ers in 2014.

Blaine Gabbert
News
Gabbert completed 28 of 44 passes for a career-high 354 yards, with one touchdown and an interception, in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win against the Rams.

Gabbert had one of the most productive outings of his career, and set up the game-winning field goal in overtime by connecting with Quinton Patton on a 33-yard pass. While he generally didn't put up big numbers after taking over for an ineffective and injured Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) in Week 9, Gabbert certainly didn't embarrass himself, showing enough to possibly get him a starting job somewhere else, if not in San Francisco. With that said, he's probably projects as a poor man's Alex Smith (both QBs are more athletic than you think), and that's not really a great thing. In any case, he finishes the season with a 10:7 TD:INT ratio in seven games.

Brandon Thomas
News
The 49ers officially opened the practice window for linebacker NaVorro Bowman and  three other players on Tuesday, according to Pro Football Talk. Bowman, along with tight end Garrett Celek, offensive lineman Brandon Thomas and cornerback Keith Reaser will have three weeks to be added to the 53-man active roster or their seasons will be lost.

An earlier report had Bowman in danger of missing the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee that he suffered during last season's NFC Championship game. He's expected to be a limited participant in practice all week leading up to Week 12 against Washington.

Mike Davis
News
Davis had 10 carries for a career-high 34 yards and caught two of three targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win against the Rams.

Davis was activated from IR on Saturday, and was involved throughout, although DuJuan Harris had one of the best games of his career, running for 67 yards while catching eight passes for 86 yards. It remains to be seen how the 49ers will use Davis in 2016 behind a healthy Carlos Hyde (foot), but Davis will probably be given a shot for a bigger role, considering he was a fourth-round pick in this past offseason.

Dres Anderson
News
The 49ers waived 10 players on Monday. They were K Corey Acosta, LB Steve Beauharnais, CB Mylan Hicks, T Sean Hooey, WR Mario Hull, WR Chuck Jacobs, WR Nigel King, LB Shawn Lemon, FB Trey Millard and DL Lawrence Okoye.

Additionally, the 49ers placed G/C Daniel Kilgore on the PUP list to start the season and WR DeAndre Smelter on the NFI list. The team also placed WR Dres Anderson and LB Desmond Bishop on injured reserve.

Bruce Miller
News
Miller has been mixing in snaps at tight end during the 49ers' offseason program, CSN Bay Area reports.

Miller has served as the team's fullback for the past five seasons, but he did see limited snaps at tight end last year. The reason for the potential role change is Chip Kelly's read-option offense, which doesn't utilize a fullback. Miller's versatile skill set and good hands (76 career receptions for 734 yards) should make the transition seamless, and he should be in the mix for snaps during training camp.

Chris Davis
News
Chargers cornerback Chris Davis left the game against the Rams in the second half to be evaluated for a concussion, reports Fox Sports.
L.J. McCray
News
Along with linebacker Patrick Willis (toe), the 49ers listed Josh Johnson, Quinton Patton, Leon McFadden , Dan Skuta, L.J. McCray, and Dillon Farrell as inactive for Week 10 at New Orleans.
Keith Reaser
News
Antoine Bethea is set to start for the 49ers this season at strong safety with Eric Reid entrenched at free safety. But the former doesn't know who their secondary mates will be and he's expecting quite a battle.

The team has no rookies at that position, but 2014 draftees Dontae Johnson, Kenneth Acker and Keith Reaser could be factors. Bethea says the competition has already begun.

"We've had a short minicamp and everybody's learning, so there are really no position, but when training camp comes, there's going to be a lot of competition, a lot of good competition," he told NFL.com. I'm excited to see it."

Tank Carradine
News
The 49ers are poised to slot Tank Carradine as a starting defensive end in 2015. Carradine, who was drafted in 2013, did not play in his rookie season due to ACL surgery. In 2015, Carradine played nine games, recording three sacks and 16 total tackles.

Now, with Justin Smith and Ray McDonald no longer on the team's defensive line, the 49ers are expecting to have Carradine be a more regular player this season, playing along side linebacker Aldon Smith.

“We work together a little bit, figuring out what kind of stunts and things we could do,” Carradine said, per CSN Bay Area. “I’m excited to work with him this year. He’s a great pass-rusher. I feel like I can bring something to the table to help him as well as he helps me.”

Carradine will likely get action on the right defensive end and spots along the defensive line. 

“We got guys who can play left and right end,” Carradine said. “We got guys who can play in the nickel package. We got guys who can play in the base package. So it’s different. We’re all going to work together. Each guy does things different. We’re going to do it together and get things done. For me, I can do both. I’m excited about it. Other guys can do it as well.”

Gerald Hodges
News
Hodges led all 49ers with 13 tackles (12 solo) in Sunday's overtime win over St. Louis.

The Rams averaged just 5.12 yards per play Sunday, which meant Hodges had plenty of opportunities to make plays around the line of scrimmage, and he did just that. He has been somewhat of a revelation for the 49ers ever since Michael Wilhoite (ankle) went down in week 13. In the four games in which he was asked to start, Hodges accumulated 39 tackles (30 solo), which are numbers worthy of IDP consideration. It is unclear who the 49ers will start alongside NaVorro Bowman next season (or if they will even run a 3-4 defense), but Hodges definitely proved that he should be considered if the team elects not to bring in a big-name free agent.

Michael Wilhoite
News
Wilhoite (ankle) was placed on IR on Saturday.

With Wilhoite ruled out for the season finale, the 49ers opted to clear up a roster spot for Mike Davis (hand). Wilhoite had a career year, posting 85 tackles in just 12 games, but the 49ers would probably rather see Gerald Hodges starting in 2016.

Injury
Ankle - Probable for start of season
Zane Beadles
News
The Jaguars have listed punter Bryan Anger (groin), guard Zane Beadles (calf), center Luke Bowanko (quad), defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks (shoulder) and kicker Josh Scobee (quad) as probable for Week 1 against the Eagles, the team announced.
DiAndre Campbell
No Updates
Tramaine Brock
News
Brock (foot) is active for Sunday's game at Cleveland.

Brock kicked off the current campaign with three picks in the first seven games, but he hasn't made much of a mark in the meantime, logging a DNP while racking up 19 tackles (15 solo) in four contests.

Bruce Ellington
News
Ellington stayed fantasy irrelevant in 2015, gaining just 153 yards on 13 catches with no touchdowns.

Ellington remained low on the depth chart despite staying healthy for the majority of the season. He was the 49ers' primary return man (25.6 yards per kick return), but it is tough to produce as the fourth or fifth receiver in an offense that struggles to move the ball through the air. With Anquan Boldin set to hit free agency, Ellington will get a chance to compete for a more prominent role in the offense this offseason.

Marcus Rush
No Updates
Trent Brown
News
The 49ers have signed the following draft picks to four-year contracts: Jaquiski Tartt , Eli Harold, Blake Bell, Mike Davis, DeAndre Smelter, Bradley Pinion, Ian Silberman, Trenton Brown and Busta Anderson, the team announced on Monday.

Tartt was selected in the second round out of Samford, where he amassed 277 tackles with six interceptions in his college career. Davis was selected in the fourth round and rushed for 2,440 yards and 22 touchdowns on 454 carries in his college career.

Antoine Bethea
News
Strong safety Jaquiski Tartt is listed as the starting strong safety for the 49ers heading into Sunday against St. Louis.

With news of Antoine Bethea (pectoral) being placed on season-ending IR, the 49ers will call on their second round pick from this year's draft to start at safety. Tartt has the size and athleticism to play the position. He is more known for his big-hit ability rather than his coverage, so it would be safe to assume that he will be a modest source of tackles, rather than interceptions while he is starting.

Injury
Shoulder - Probable for start of season
Colin Kaepernick
News
GM Trent Baalke left open the possibility that Kaepernick (shoulder/knee/thumb) could be traded this week, ESPN.com reports.

"I wouldn't say we are out there looking for it, but I wouldn't rule it out," Baalke noted, as Thursday's NFL draft approaches. While we wouldn't expect all of the NFL teams with fluid QB situations to engage in a flurry of trades this week, the draft does present a window which favors such movement. With that in mind, another QB who could potentially be on the move is Philadelphia's Sam Bradford. In the meantime, Kaepernick -- who is recovering from shoulder, thumb and knee surgeries this offseason -- is attending the 49ers' voluntary minicamp this week, but he still isn't throwing at this stage.

Injury
Left shoulder - Probable for start of season
DuJuan Harris
News
Harris had 16 carries for 67 yards and caught eight of 12 targets for 86 yards in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win over the Rams.

A week after producing a career-high 73 rushing yards, Harris was a major factor again Sunday, easily leading the 49ers in rushing and receiving. The journeyman RB has great speed and a low center of gravity, but with Carlos Hyde (foot) expected to be the featured back in 2016, it's hard to get excited about Harris' prospects for next season.

Eric Reid
News
Reid (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday versus the Bengals, John Dickinson of 95.7 The Game San Francisco reports.

There was little double that Reid would take the field in Week 15 with three full practices under his belt. Over the last four games, he's picked up the pace, tackle-wise, with 27 (21 solo) in addition to a forced fumble.

Ian Williams
News
Williams' contract with the 49ers has been reworked into a one-year deal worth up to $6 million due to the uncertainty surrounding his availability for the beginning of the upcoming season, CSN Bay Area reports.

Williams initially agreed to a reported five-year, $27.5 million contract with the 49ers following a career year last season, but after he couldn't pass a team physical due to multiple offseason ankle surgeries, Williams contract was reworked into a one-year deal. A player that's had numerous procedures to his left leg during his pro career, Williams' status for the start of the 2016 is in question following his latest operations, leaving the 49ers in need of some depth up front in case he's unavailable.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for start of season
Kendall Gaskins
News
Gaskins was promoted from the practice squad and saw limited action, finishing the year with 16 carries for 38 yards while adding 69 yards on eight catches.

After starting the last two seasons on the 49ers' practice squad, Gaskins finally made his professional debut when Carlos Hyde and Reggie Bush went down with season-ending injuries. His 2.4 YPC confirm the organization's belief that he isn't more than a roster depth piece. He is under contract through the end of the next season, so he will likely end up on the practice squad if he can survive the training camp roster cuts.

Jimmie Ward
News
Ward finished his sophomore campaign with 57 tackles (48 solo), a sack, and a pick.

It was a tale of two seasons for the former first-round draft pick, as he recorded just three tackles through the 49ers' first four games before turning it on in the second half and capping a solid campaign with a 10-tackle performance in week 17. Ward started the year as a reserve defensive back, then became the team's nickel back, and finished the season at his natural position (safety) when Jaquiski Tartt went down to injury. It was starting to look like he was a bust, but his strong play at the end of the year opened eyes. If the rebuilding 49ers decide to cut ties with Antoine Bethea this offseason, then Ward could find himself in a starting role next season, giving him a huge boost in IDP value.

Marcus Martin
News
The 49ers will have wideout Michael Crabtree Week 17 against the Cardinals.

Crabtree came into the contest listed as probable due to a knee injury. The club will also have Chris Culliver, Brandon Lloyd, Marcus Martin and Justin Smith. All four players were also listed as probable. 

Bruce Ellington, who came into the game listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury, will give it a go. He's the only player listed as questionable who will attempt to play through his injury. 

Kenneth Acker
News
Antoine Bethea is set to start for the 49ers this season at strong safety with Eric Reid entrenched at free safety. But the former doesn't know who their secondary mates will be and he's expecting quite a battle.

The team has no rookies at that position, but 2014 draftees Dontae Johnson, Kenneth Acker and Keith Reaser could be factors. Bethea says the competition has already begun.

"We've had a short minicamp and everybody's learning, so there are really no position, but when training camp comes, there's going to be a lot of competition, a lot of good competition," he told NFL.com. I'm excited to see it."

Will Redmond
News
The 49ers selected Redmond (knee) in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 68th overall.

Redmond likely would have been a second-round pick and could have even pushed for the first round if he hadn't torn his ACL during the 2015 season. This therefore looks like a potential bargain for a 49ers team that lacks proven options at corner.

Jaquiski Tartt
News
Tartt (knee) is active for Sunday's game in Detroit.

Tartt has been a significant member of the 49ers' secondary since Week 7, notching 50 tackles (38 solo), one interception, one forced fumble, and one sack over the last eight contests.

Quinton Dial
News
The 49ers have signed Dial to a three-year extension, The Sacramento Bee reports.

Dial - who would have been a free agent after the 2016 season - set career-highs in tackles (59 combined) and sacks (2.5) this past year. He showed enough improvement for the 49ers' front office to extend his contract through the 2019 season. A former fifth-round draft pick in 2013, Dial has outworked higher draft picks from that class - such as Tank Carradine and Corey Lemonier - to earn a starting spot next year.

Reggie Bush
News
Bush (knee) is expected to start running in one week, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Bush's tenure with the 49ers got off to a rocky start after straining his calf in the season opener. The injury lingered through October, and he eventually suffered an ignominious knee injury in Week 8 at St. Louis, where he slipped on concrete at the conclusion of a punt return. After a diagnosis of MCL and meniscus tears in that knee, his season was over with just eight carries for 28 yards and four receptions (on 10 targets) for 19 yards in five games. Interested parties will likely put the soon-to-be 31-year-old through the ringer to ensure that he's progressing well in the expected 4-to-6 month recovery, and while he appears dead set on playing in 2016, in what capacity remains to be seen.

Ahmad Brooks
News
Brooks (personal) returned to the field Thursday, recording five tackles (two solo) and a pair of sacks in the loss to Seattle.

Brooks had missed last week's contest to attend the funeral of his sister. He returned Thursday and the extra rest seemed to have given the veteran linebacker a boost. While this was a monster game, it has to be taken with a grain of salt, as the Seattle offensive line is, well, offensive.
