Position Listing
Christian DiLauro
No Updates
Tom Savage
News
Savage was waived by the 49ers on Saturday.

Savage signed with San Francisco early this week, and appears to have been nothing more than a quarterback for the scout team, though he could still re-sign with the team at some point. Nick Mullens remains entrenched as the C.J. Beathard's backup for the 49ers, as Savage looks for his next opportunity.

Jeff Wilson
News
Wilson carried the ball five times for 20 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Texans.

Wilson was the last running back to enter the contest, but he was also the only runner to average a minimum of four yards per carry. That said, the undrafted rookie appears to be low in the pecking order in the 49ers' third running back competition, but he can certainly elevate his status with a strong showing in the final two weeks of the preseason.

Najee Toran
No Updates
Garrett Celek
News
Celek (quadriceps) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is on pace to be available for Monday night's matchup against the Packers, Matt Maiocco of NBCSports.com reports.

Celek has gone without a catch for two consecutive weeks, but he could see an expanded role Monday if fellow tight end George Kittle suffers any sort of setback to his injured knee.

Greg Mabin
News
Mabin (calf) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Mabin missed each of the last two games with a calf injury. However, his full participation in practice Wednesday puts him in line to return for the season finale Sunday against the Rams.

Bradley Pinion
No Updates
Trent Taylor
News
Taylor (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Taylor was listed as doubtful with the injury ahead of the 49ers' Week 6 matchup with the Packers before ultimately being inactive for the contest, so the fact that he's considered questionable for Week 7 suggests he's taken a step forward in his recovery from the back injury. If cleared to suit up Sunday, Taylor would likely retain his usual duties in the slot, where he forged a quality connection with quarterback C.J. Beathard his last time out. In the 49ers' Week 5 loss to the Cardinals, Taylor set season highs across the board with seven catches for 61 yards and a touchdown on eight targets.

Injury
Back - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 7 vs. L.A. Rams
Marcell Harris
News
Harris (hamstring) participated in practice Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Harris has spent all season on injured reserve, and the rookie's return to practice opens his window to be activated from IR. If Harris is eventually activated to the 53-man roster, the first game he'll be eligible to play will be Week 9 against the Raiders.

Injury
Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Kendrick Bourne
News
Bourne caught one pass (three targets) for 22 yards in Monday's 33-30 loss to the Packers.

Bourne was elevated to third on the receiving depth chart with both Trent Taylor (back) and Dante Pettis (knee) sitting out Monday's contest. Despite the increased role, the 23-year-old saw fewer targets than either of his previous two games (four and seven, respectively) when he served as the 49ers' fourth receiver. Bourne does have two touchdowns on the year, but his sporadic target share keeps him off the fantasy radar for the time being.

Elijah Lee
News
Lee started and recorded 12 tackles (10 solo) and a sack in Sunday's win over Detroit.

Lee made his first start with the 49ers with several linebackers held out of action. The 22-year-old performed admirably in a pinch, but his role is set to be reduced with Reuben Foster returning from suspension next week. Lee could still start right outside linebacker if Malcolm Smith (hamstring) is unable to go, but he would likely come off the field in nickel and dime packages, limiting his IDP appeal.

Cole Wick
News
Wick signed a contract to join the 49ers practice squad Wednesday.

Just a day after being waived by the 49ers, Wick will apparently stick around with the club without being part of the 53-man roster. Should injuries arise on the 53-man roster, Wick would likely be one of the first options to rejoin it.

Joe Staley
News
Staley (knee) is active for Monday's contest against the Packers.

Staley was a limited participant in Friday's and Saturday's practices. As he did in Week 5, Staley will be able to play through his knee injury. He will get the start at left tackle.

Nick Mullens
No Updates
Mike Person
News
Person (knee) is listed as active for Monday's contest against the Packers.

Person was limited in practice this week but will suit up Monday night. The 30-year-old should fill his normal role as San Francisco's starting right guard.

Sheldon Day
No Updates
Alfred Morris
News
Morris' demotion to third on the running back depth chart may not be permanent, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.

Matt Breida (ankle) surprisingly was able to start Week 6's loss to the Packers despite carrying a doubtful tag, but even more surprisingly, Raheem Mostert (12 carries for 87 yards) served as the 49ers' primary backup. Despite last week's usage, Kyle Shanahan did not commit to Mostert overtaking Morris on the depth chart, stating that "I don't think it was a permanent change. It was what we thought was best for that game." This is about as positive as a statement Morris' owners could hear after the back received no carries against the Packers. Fantasy owners should still take a wait-and-see approach against the Rams on Sunday, especially if Breida (limited practice Thursday) is able to suit up.

Matt Breida
News
Breida (shoulder/ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Breida has proven to be a fast healer this season, playing at a high level while nursing a variety of injuries. The bigger concern for him than the shoulder or ankle issue is a Week 7 matchup and the undefeated Rams that could force San Francisco to abandon its rushing attack late in the game. The Rams have surrendered 4.7 yards per carry to opposing running backs, but touchdowns (three) and volume (18.8 carries per game) have been hard to come by. It remains to be seen if Raheem Mostert or Alfred Morris will serve as Breida's top complement.

Marquise Goodwin
News
Goodwin caught four of five targets for 126 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 33-30 loss to the Packers.

Goodwin did damage from distance, scoring from 67 and 30 yards on his two touchdowns Monday. The shifty wideout comfortably led San Fransisco in receiving yards, which came after he mustered just 54 yards through his first three games. With firepower lacking in the 49ers passing attack, Goodwin will aim to keep the big plays coming, although a matchup versus the Rams on Sunday should temper expectations.

Steven Dunbar
No Updates
Tyvis Powell
News
Powell signed a contract with the 49ers on Saturday.

Powell was waived by San Francisco earlier this month and has since been on the team's practice squad. The 49ers required additional depth in the secondary with Jimmie Ward (hamstring) doubtful and K'Waun Williams (shoulder, Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) and Richard Sherman (calf) listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

JP Flynn
News
Flynn (knee) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.

Flynn is now stuck on IR through the end of the league year, barring an injury settlement.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Cassius Marsh
News
Marsh (groin) was active for Thursday's preseason opener, recording a tackle in limited action.

Marsh is expected to be used as a pass-rush specialist and special teams contributor with the 49ers after inking a two-year extension this past offseason. The 24-year-old recorded three sacks in a similar role with both the Patriots and 49ers in 2017.

Robbie Gould
News
Gould nailed all three of his field-goal attempts (43, 44, 46) and went 3-for-3 on extra-point tries in Monday's 33-30 loss to Green Bay.

Gould bounced back in a big way after missing his lone field-goal attempt last week against the Cardinals. The 35-year-old is now 13-for-14 (93 percent) on field-goal tries this season. The 49ers offense has looked surprisingly dynamic under backup quarterback C.J. Beathard over the last three weeks, which bodes well for Gould's prospects as a fantasy option moving forward.

Richard Sherman
News
Sherman (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Sherman practiced in limited fashions Wednesday and Thursday. The former Seahawk had a quiet game last Monday against the Packers, recording just one tackle over 69 snaps. If Sherman misses time Sunday, Jimmie Ward could see more snaps.

Injury
Calf - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 7 vs. L.A. Rams
Erik Magnuson
News
Magnuson (hamstring) is not present on the 49ers' injury report for Week 3.

Magnuson sat out the first two games of the season with the hamstring injury he suffered in the preseason. The 24-year-old was ruled out 6-to-8 weeks when he was examined Aug. 19, so he is ahead of schedule in his recovery.

D.J. Jones
News
Jones (knee) will not suit up Sunday against the Seahawks, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Jones suffered a knee injury during Week 8's loss to the Eagles, and while it wasn't serious enough to land him on IR, he has already been ruled out for Week 9. The 49ers will either turn to their practice squad or free agency to fill his depth role on the defensive line.

D.J. Reed
No Updates
Victor Bolden
News
Bolden had one catch (four targets) for 10 yards in Sunday's loss to Arizona.

Bolden made his 2018 debut after serving a four-game suspension to begin the season. The speedy wideout appeared to have scored the first touchdown of his career on a quick strike from C.J. Beathard, but replay review showed that he was touched down at the one-yard line. Bolden's four targets ranked fourth amongst San Francisco wideouts, but his role is likely to diminish once Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) and/or Dante Pettis (knee) return from injury.

Joshua Garnett
News
Garnett (toe) took full part in Monday's practice session, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Garnett has appeared in just one game this season for the 49ers, but he looks to be available again if needed. He will likely return to a role as a backup interior lineman.

K'Waun Williams
News
Williams (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 7's matchup against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Williams didn't practice Wednesday but squeezed in a limited practice Thursday. Including Williams, San Francisco has four defensive backs on the injury report. If the Pittsburgh product is unable to play Sunday, Jimmie Ward or Greg Mabin could see increased work.

Injury
Shoulder - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 7 vs. L.A. Rams
Arik Armstead
News
Armstead (hamstring) returned to action Saturday, logging 22 defensive snaps and finishing with a tackle in a preseason loss to the Colts.

Armstead had been sidelined for the past three weeks with a hamstring injury, but his return puts him back on track to start the regular season healthy. The 24-year-old should start opposite Solomon Thomas at defensive end this year, but he could find himself subbed out on passing downs due to his lack of pass-rush ability (just six sacks over first three seasons).

Laken Tomlinson
News
Tomlinson agreed to a three-year contract extension Friday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN reports.

The 49ers declined the fifth-year team option on Tomlinson's contract in early May, but as Friday's extension indicates, they still view him as a starting offensive lineman. However, the team apparently didn't feel that Tomlinson was worth the $9.6 million he otherwise would have been owed under the previous terms. Regardless, the 2015 first-rounder is now set to stick around in San Francisco through the 2021 campaign.

Antone Exum
News
Exum will likely start against the Chargers on Sunday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Exum would start in place of Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder), who is considered doubtful for Week 4. Tartt sat out last week's loss to the Chiefs, and Exum recorded a strong nine tackles in his absence then. The 2014 sixth-round pick holds some IDP relevance as long as he continues to start.

Ronald Blair
News
Blair finished with four tackles (three solo) and a career-high two sacks in Sunday's 31-21 victory over the Giants.

Blair -- who was recently reinstated from injured reserve -- was filling in for Solomon Thomas (knee), who was a late scratch Sunday. The 24-year-old responded with the best performance of his young career. While the upcoming bye week should afford Thomas enough time to be ready for Week 12's matchup against Seattle, Blair's impressive showing could keep him in the starting lineup in place of the expendable Leger Douzable.

DeForest Buckner
News
Buckner recorded two tackles (one solo) and a sack in Monday's 33-30 loss to Green Bay.

Buckner brought his sack total up to 4.5 after enduring a three-week drought in the category. The 24-year-old actually had a second sack wiped out by a Richard Sherman illegal contact penalty on the Packers' game-winning drive. Buckner's tackle totals leave a lot to be desired (23 through six weeks), but the defensive tackle is well on pace to break his previous career high of six sacks this season.

George Kittle
News
Kittle (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Despite being nicked up for most of the season, Kittle has yet to actually miss a game. The Rams haven't allowed an opposing tight end to score a touchdown, but they have given up 8.0 yards per target to the position, thanks in large part to a monster outing from Oakland's Jared Cook back in Week 1.

Fred Warner
News
Warner recorded just three tackles (all solo) in Sunday's 28-18 loss to Arizona.

The 49ers controlled the time of possession despite taking the loss, resulting in few tackle opportunities for all of their starting defenders. In fact, no defensive player had more than four tackles for San Francisco, so Warner's low total can be attributed to an unfavorable game script. The talented rookie should still be considered a strong IDP option after racking up 43 tackles over his previous four games.

Weston Richburg
News
Richburg (knee) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Packers.

Richburg hurt his knee in Week 5 and was a limited participant in practice this week. However, he'll attempt to play through the injury. He should get the start at center for the 49ers.

Garry Gilliam
News
Gilliam (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Gilliam seems to be progressing in his recovery from a concussion sustained nearly a month ago. Given the nature of Gilliam's injury, it's difficult to estimate a timetable for the 27-year-old's return. Expected to serve a rotational role in the 49ers' O-line this season, it remains to be seen whether Gilliam will suit up for Sunday's season opener against the Vikings.

Matt Dayes
News
Dayes signed with the 49ers' practice squad Tuesday.

The 2017 seventh-round pick by the Browns was waived by the team Sept. 2. Dayes appeared in all 16 games for the Browns last season and had five carries for 13 yards while adding four receptions for 29 yards. He was also active on both sides of the ball on special teams, registering 18 kickoff returns for 437 yards (24.3 average) and eight tackles.

Earl Mitchell
News
Mitchell recorded 33 tackles (19 solo) to go along with a sack in 16 games in 2017.

Fresh off inking a four-year contract last offseason, the veteran defensive tackle surpassed his previous career high in snaps that he set with Miami back in 2014. Primarily a run-stuffer, Mitchell didn't post totals that would appeal to IDP owners. His heavy usage indicates that the 49ers will likely feel comfortable deploying the 30-year-old in a similar early-down role next season.

Pierre Garcon
News
Garcon (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Garcon carries the injury designation into the weekend after he only managed limited participation in practices Thursday and Friday. The wideout has failed to record more than five receptions or accrue more than 57 receiving yards in any of his six outings this season. Even if he shakes off the injury and suits up Sunday, Garcon's fantasy upside will remain fairly limited.

Injury
Shoulder - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 7 vs. L.A. Rams
Malcolm Smith
News
Smith (hamstring) recorded just one tackle in his delayed debut for the 49ers on Sunday.

Smith was cleared of the hamstring injury that caused him to miss the first two games of the season, and he was immediately inserted as the team's starting Sam linebacker. While the 29-year-old is technically a starter, he was not used in nickel formations, limiting him to 34 of 76 snaps. Reuben Foster and rookie Fred Warner are the superior IDP options amongst the 49ers' linebackers.

Raheem Mostert
News
Coach Kyle Shanahan said the decision to use Mostert over Alfred Morris on Monday in Green Bay isn't "permanent," Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Mostert appears to have gotten the nod over Morris based on the matchup more than anything, but the journeyman running back impressed thoroughly with his touches. Working in tandem with Matt Breida -- 14 carries, 27 offensive snaps -- Mostert used 23 snaps on offense to churn out 87 yards on his 12 rushes. With an upcoming matchup Sunday against the Rams, it remains to be seen if the 49ers will return to their previous 1-2 punch of Breida-Morris or the most recent version.

Kyle Nelson
No Updates
Mike McGlinchey
News
McGlinchey (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

McGlinchey was a full participant in Friday's practice but is still deemed questionable. If he doesn't play, McGlinchey will be replaced by Garry Gilliam at right tackle.

Shon Coleman
News
Coleman was traded from the Browns to the 49ers in exchange for a 2019 seventh-round pick, the 49ers' official site reports.

Coleman was selected in the third round of the 2016 draft before appearing in 23 games with the Browns throughout the past two seasons. He started all 16 games at right tackle during his sophomore campaign in 2017.

Tarvarius Moore
News
Moore (knee) returned to Thursday's game, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Moore exited the game after injuring his knee in the first half, but he's been cleared to return. He will continue to contribute for the 49ers on special teams while filling a depth secondary role.

Reuben Foster
News
Foster had nine tackles (eight solo) in Monday's 33-30 loss to Green Bay.

An unusual game script led to a season-low three tackles for Foster last week, but he got back on track with a team-leading nine tackles against the Packers. The 49ers' field general was not limited by the minor shoulder injury he sustained last week, staying on the field for every defensive snap Monday. Foster will be very busy trying to run down the dynamic Todd Gurley in next week's division matchup against the Rams.

Malcolm Johnson
News
The 49ers waived Johnson (undisclosed) from injured reserve Saturday, per the league's official transaction log.

The move came as a result of the Niners and Johnson reaching an injury settlement. Johnson last suited up in 2016, playing seven games for the Browns and rushing once for two yards. He'll be free to sign with another team once he's healthy.

Injury
Solomon Thomas
News
Thomas sustained a head injury and won't return to Thursday's preseason opener against the Cowboys, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

It isn't entirely clear what Thomas is dealing with. There's been no word of him being in the protocol for head injuries, but a concussion still can't be definitively ruled out. We'll likely know more about his injury in the coming days.

Adrian Colbert
News
Colbert (head) was estimated as a full participant at Wednesday's walkthrough practice session, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Colbert exited Monday's game against the Packers with an apparent head injury, but he appears to be no worse for the wear because of it. Barring a setback at some point, he's in a good position to play in Sunday's game against the Rams.

C.J. Beathard
News
Beathard completed 16 of 23 passes for 245 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Monday night's 33-30 loss to the Packers.

Beathard enjoyed a great start at Lambeau Field, tossing two touchdowns from 30-plus yards. With Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) injured, Beathard figures to lead the 49ers for the remainder of this season, and has now thrown for two touchdowns in three straight games. While his five interceptions over that same span are cause for concern, Beathard has proven a decent fill-in option for San Francisco while its franchise signal-caller is sidelined.

Ahkello Witherspoon
News
Witherspoon (concussion) carries the questionable tag ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Witherspoon didn't practice Wednesday but practiced in a limited fashion Thursday. The Colorado product hasn't cleared concussion protocol just yet, but seems on pace to play Sunday. If he does miss Sunday's game, however, Greg Mabin or Jimmie Ward could get more work.

Injury
Concussion - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 7 vs. L.A. Rams
Mark Nzeocha
News
The 49ers dealt starting outside linebacker Eli Harold to the Lions Thursday, opening the door for Nzeocha to start in his place Saturday against the Colts, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Nzeocha signed a one-year deal this offseason with an expectation of serving on special teams, but Harold's departure opens up a potential starting role to begin the season. The 28-year-old recorded just six tackles in kickoff coverage over the last two seasons, so it's unclear what type of production can be expected if he hangs on to the starting job come Week 1. Pita Taumoepenu and rookie Fred Warner could also compete for the job over the final two weeks of the preseason.

Kentavius Street
News
Street (ACL) was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.

Street is just four months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL, so he was never expected to be able to return this season. The rookie defensive end will have to wait until the 2019 season to make his NFL debut.

Ross Dwelley
News
Dwelley was promoted to the 49ers' active roster prior to Monday's game versus the Packers, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

This move casts doubt unto whether George Kittle (knee) is fully healthy, but Kittle is expected to suit up anyway. Therefore, Dwelley could end up being a healthy inactive Monday.

Jimmy Garoppolo
News
Garoppolo (knee) had surgery Wednesday to repair a torn left ACL, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Garoppolo had the procedure less than two weeks after suffering the injury, which suggests the swelling in his knee wasn't too severe. He faces a lengthy rehab process, but the timing of the surgery should at least give him a good shot to be ready for Week 1 of the 2019 season. C.J. Beathard is expected to serve as the 49ers' starting quarterback for the remainder of the 2018 campaign.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Dekoda Watson

The 49ers placed Watson (hamstring) on injured reserve Saturday.

Watson suffered a hamstring injury earlier this week, which was apparently significant enough to land the 30-year-old on IR. The reserve linebacker had landed on the PUP list earlier in training camp due to a strained calf muscle, and it remains unclear whether his current injury is related. With Watson out, Cassius Marsh figures to see an uptick in snaps.

Jerick McKinnon
News
McKinnon had surgery Tuesday to repair an ACL tear that's believed to be "pretty clean," Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The report doesn't provide any specifics but might be taken as a hint that McKinnon avoided major damage to the other ligaments in his knee. If so, the timing of the injury should allow him to return for Week 1 of next season, though he still has a grueling rehab process ahead. Meanwhile, Alfred Morris and Matt Breida are forming a timeshare in the San Francisco backfield.

Kyle Juszczyk
News
Juszczyk caught all three of his targets for 30 yards in Monday's loss to Green Bay.

Juszczyk was unable to match last week's season high of 75 yards, but his three receptions ranked fourth among all San Francisco receiving options Monday. The 27-year-old is averaging 2.8 receptions and 37.8 yards per game this season. Those numbers are exceptional for a fullback, but lacking in terms of a standard-league running back when you factor in the lack of carries (just one carry through six weeks).

Dante Pettis
News
Pettis (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Pettis returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant but was then held out of Thursday's session. He'll sit out for a third straight game, perhaps targeting a return Week 8 in Arizona.

Jimmie Ward
News
Ward (hamstring) didn't participate in Thursday's practice and is unlikely to play Sunday against the Rams, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Ward sustained the hamstring injury in the fourth quarter of the 49ers' Week 6 loss to Green Bay. The veteran defensive back had been starting alongside Richard Sherman, a role that will likely fall to Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) or Greg Mabin against the Rams if Ward's condition fails to improve prior to kickoff.

Richie James
News
James is a coach's decision inactive for Sunday's matchup with Kansas City.

James suited up in Week 2 but didn't see the field. He's a depth receiver and special teams player who's likely inactive due to the overall health of players above him on the depth chart.

Brock Coyle
News
Coyle suffered a broken bone in his back in addition to a concussion, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Coyle was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, meaning the linebacker will miss at least six weeks while he works to recover. He could be a candidate to return as the season progresses, but San Francisco won't make a definitive choice in the near future.

Jaquiski Tartt
News
Tartt wrapped up nine tackles (seven solo) in Monday's 33-30 loss to the Packers.

Tartt made a healthy return from a shoulder injury last week against the Cardinals, recording three tackles in a game that didn't see a 49ers defender get more than four. Monday's nine-tackle performance is a better indicator of the upside the safety possesses in IDP formats. Assuming he can stay off the injury list, Tartt is a good bet to lead all San Francisco defensive backs in tackles this season.

Pita Taumoepenu
News
Taumoepenu (ankle) practiced without limitations Wednesday.

The rookie sixth-round pick is in line for his NFL debut Sunday against the Colts. However, he's projected to only be used as a depth linebacker and special teams man.

Ryan Delaire
News
The 49ers waived Delaire on Monday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The move makes room for tight end Ross Dwelley on the 53-man roster. Delaire was just promoted from the active roster prior to Week 5's game, but he didn't suit up for the contest. Expect Delaire to return to the 49ers' practice squad if he goes unclaimed.
