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 (ankle) has been placed on injured reserve, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports.

With Celek nursing a high-ankle sprain and the 49ers out of contention, there wasn't much incentive to see if he might make it back for Week 16 or 17. Even before the injury, Celek was surpassed by Vance McDonald, who subsequently suffered a concussion during Sunday's win over the Bears. If McDonald isn't ready for Sunday's game against Cleveland, rookie Blake Bell will likely get most of the targets at tight end. Celek doesn't offer much in the way of long-term upside and may have to compete for a roster spot next season.

Injury
Ankle - IR. Out for season
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 caught five of eight targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win against the Rams.

Boldin showed decent chemistry with QB Blaine Gabbert, as the pair hooked up at least five times in all but one of the six games in which they both played. Even Boldin's 33-yard touchdown came on a play in which he really wasn't open, but Gabbert put it on his back shoulder. Still, the veteran wideout doesn't seem to have a whole lot left in the tank at 35-years-old, averaging 11.4 YPC, which was one of the worst marks of his career. He also finished with the second fewest receiving yards (789) of his career. With that said, it's not like the 49ers have an elite passing attack and speed has never been part of his game anyway, so his mediocre 2015 season doesn't necessarily mean it's the end of the line just yet. He'll be a free agent in the offseason, so it will be interesting to see what kind of market there is for the tough possession receiver.

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.

Shaun Draughn
News
Draughn (knee) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, the 49ers' official site reports.

Draughn filled in admirably following the losses of Carlos Hyde (foot) and Reggie Bush (knee) for the season, racking up 76 carries for 263 yards, 25 catches (on 32 targets) for 175 yards, and one rushing touchdown over the course of six games between Weeks 9 and 15. However, Draughn sustained a season-ending MCL sprain at the end of the run and will miss the final two contests of the season. With Draughn out of the picture, DuJuan Harris and Jarryd Hayne are expected to man the backfield in Sunday's season finale versus the Rams.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for 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
Injury
Undisclosed - IR. Out for season
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.

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) was never activated during his rookie season.

The 49ers expected this when they drafted the injured wideout this past offseason. He did return to practice late in the season, but with the team out of contention, there was no point in rushing their fourth round pick back into action too soon. Because of his ACL injury, Smelter came at a discount, and if he can rehab fully this offseason, he will immediately enter the "sleeper" ranks with a lackluster group of wideouts ahead of him on the depth chart.

Injury
Undisclosed - NFI. Out indefinitely
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 converted all four of his field goal attempts, including the game-winner in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win over the Rams.

This was only the second time Dawson had attempted four field goals this whole season. The 49ers' stagnant offense limited his opportunities to score this season, but Dawson took care of his end and converted 24-of-17 attempts (two were blocked). He will be a free agent this offseason, but proved that he can still get it done even as a 40-year-old. Retirement would be the only reason Dawson isn't kicking for an NFL team next season.

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
GM Trent Baalke relayed Wednesday that Hyde underwent left foot surgery prior to the end of the 2015 season, the Sacramento Bee reports.

The report notes that Hyde -- who missed the 49ers' last nine games in 2015 with a stress fracture in his foot -- should recover from the procedure in advance of the team's upcoming offseason program, which begins in April. Looking ahead to the 2016 campaign, Hyde is slated to reprise his role as the team's top back once his health is reestablished, with Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area suggesting that 6-0, 235-pounder "appears to be a good fit" for new coach Chip Kelly's offense, given that Hyde "is very comfortable executing zone runs out of the spread dating back to his days at Ohio State."

Injury
Foot - IR. Out for season
Donald Hawkins
News
The Cowboys announced the signing of two draft picks. 

The team signed fifth-round defensive end Ryan Russell, out of Purdue, and seventh-round linebacker Mark Nzeocha, out of Wyoming.

The team also waived linebacker Troy Davis and tackle Donald Hawkins while releasing linebacker Dekoda Watson

Tony Jerod-Eddie
News
The 49ers signed defensive tackle Tony Jerod-Eddie to a one-year exclusive rights tender Tuesday, the team announced.

During the 2014 season, Jerod-Eddie played in 16 games and totaled 20 tackles.

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.

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.
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.

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
Linebacker Eli Harold will get his first career start for the 49ers with Ahmad Brooks (personal) missing the game Sunday against the Giants.

Brooks is expected back next week, so this will be a one-game showcase for the rookie out of Virginia.

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
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.

Miller went for a career-high 89 yards on three catches in Sunday's win over Baltimore.

Miller went unaccounted for on a couple occasions, and the veteran fullback made the Ravens pay. He has been involved in the passing game in the past, but has been almost invisible before Sunday's outburst. Miller could see more targets going forward given the lack of production from the tight end position this season, but not enough to make him fantasy relevant.

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.
Brian Leonhardt
News
The Raiders announced the signing of 10 players Wednesday.

The following players were signed as restricted free agents: Larry Asante, Andre Holmes, Marquette King, Brandian Ross and Rod Streater.

Meanwhile, the team also signed the following exclusive rights free-agent players: Denico Autry, Brian Leonhardt, Matt McCants, Jamize Olawale and Neiko Thorpe.

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.
Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
McLeod Bethel-Thompson
News
The Vikings announced they added quarterback Chandler Harnish, receiver Donte Foster and safety Pierre Warren to the practice squad. Quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson was released from the squad.
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 - IR. Out for season
DiAndre Campbell

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
Trenton 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 - IR. Out for season
Alex Boone
News
49ers offensive lineman Alex Boone is expected to switch from right guard to left guard for the upcoming season, the veteran said per ESPN.com. He will replace three-time Pro Bowler Mike Iupati at the position.

"It's great," Boone said. "It's different, obviously, [after] playing next to Anthony [Davis] all those years, now you move over play next to Joe [Staley]. Both great tackles. Footwork's a little diferent, handwork is a little different, but at the end of the day it’s come along real well."

Injury
Colin Kaepernick
News
Kaepernick (shoulder) underwent surgeries on his right thumb and left knee Wednesday, CSN Bay Area reports.

Early in the week, it was revealed that Kaepernick may require a procedure to repair a torn ligament in the thumb, but a subsequent examination also forced doctors to perform arthroscopic surgery on his knee. The dual procedures come in the wake of his recovery from November surgery to repair a torn left labrum, which was accompanied by a 4-to-6 month recovery. Once his throwing hand is evaluated in six weeks, though, the timetable could be amended.

Injury
Left shoulder - IR. Out for 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.

Kyle Sebetic
News
The Packers have signed defensive back Kyle Sebetic, according to the team's official website.

Sebetic was signed to the Giants practice squad in 2014. He was later cut by the team and he did not appear in any games.

The 23-year-old participated in Sunday's NFL veteran combine.

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
The 49ers announced Monday they activated nose tackle Glenn Dorsey (biceps) from short-term injured reserve. To clear a roster spot, nose tackle Ian Williams (fibula) was placed on season-ending IR.
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."

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
49ers running back Frank Gore (concussion) and wide receiver Michael Crabtree (knee) are active for Saturday's Week 16 matchup with the Chargers.

Both players were listed as questionable on the team's final injury report, though it was reported early Saturday that Gore would in fact suit up for the game. Crabtree has yet to miss a game this season.

Offensive tackle Anthony Davis (concussion) is also active after being listed as questionable. The team had several players listed as probable and all are active Saturday, including cornerbacks Perrish Cox (ankle) and Chris Culliver (knee), safety Bubba Ventrone (groin), linebacker Michael Wilhoite (hip), tackle Jonathan Martin (illness), center Marcus Martin (knee), tight end Kyle Nelson (back) and defensive linemen Justin Smith (back), Quinton Dial (knee) and Tony Jerod-Eddie (foot).

Reggie Bush
News
Bush revealed Wednesday that in addition to suffering a torn MCL in Week 8, he also tore the meniscus on that knee, which will require 4-to-6 months of recovery, Mindi Bach of CSN Bay Area reports.

Bush will enter free agency in the offseason in the midst of his recovery from multiple knee ligament tears, which will likely scare interested parties until he's able to partake in a workout. Consequently, he may not find a landing spot until few vacancies exist in backfields around the NFL.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
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.
