49ers inactives open the door for some useful evaluations in Week 14

49ers inactives open the door for some useful evaluations in Week 14

The San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos released their inactives for Week 14, and there are no real surprises for Kyle Shanahan’s squad. Matt Breida, Pierre Garçon, and Jaquiski Tartt are all inactive after being ruled out on Friday. Jeff Wilson will start in Breida’s place, Dante Pettis will likely start opposite Marquise Goodwin, and Marcell Harris should get another start at strong safety. K’Waun Williams is inactive with a knee injury, which means rookie D.J. Reed is likely to get the start in the slot. That would mean Antone Exum starts at free safety. Pita Taumoepenu is...

Injury report implications for 49ers-Broncos

The 49ers will be out three starters for their Week 14 matchup against the Broncos. Who’s stepping up? The San Francisco 49ers will be without three starters against the Denver Broncos Sunday for their Week 14 matchup at Levi’s Stadium. Receiver Pierre Garçon, running back Matt Breida and safety Jaquiski Tartt were all ruled out Friday by coach Kyle Shanahan. Garçon’s missed the last four weeks with a combination of both knee and shoulder injuries. Kendrick Bourne has filled in for the veteran receiver, reeling in 10 receptions for 120 yards in his absence. The former undrafted free...

D.J. Reed, Marquise Goodwin return to 49ers practice in Week 14

The 49ers are missing two starters, but welcomed back potential starters. The San Francisco 49ers were back at practice on Wednesday, and there are no big surprises on the injury report. Matt Breida and Jaquiski Tartt both sat out practice, two days after head coach Kyle Shanahan said they would be out this weekend. Dekoda Watson was also a DNP, and was placed on injured reserve earlier this afternoon with a calf tear. The big change from last week is the return of Marquise Goodwin. He has returned to practice, and seems set to return to action this weekend. Shanahan said they will track...

Wednesday, December 5th, 2018 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet The loss on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks officially knocked the 49ers out of playoff contention.

They figure to play a big part in this roster going forward. For the rookies, Mike McGlinchey and Fred Warner have proven to be good football players. In the last 2 weeks, WR Dante Pettis has added...

Matt Breida OUT for Week 14, Kyle Shanahan expects Marquise Goodwin to be back

The 49ers will be dipping down into the depth chart. The San Francisco 49ers were back in Santa Clara Monday to recover from their Week 13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and head coach Kyle Shanahan offered some injury updates. He said running back Matt Breida (ankle) and safety Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) will be out for Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos. Additionally, the team will place linebacker Dekoda Watson (calf) on injured reserve. Shanahan said that wide receiver Marquise Goodwin was back with the team for meetings today, and will likely address the media later in the week...

Jeff Wilson gets opportunity after Matt Breida aggravated ankle injury

Jeff Wilson gets opportunity after Matt Breida aggravated ankle injury

The San Francisco 49ers have dealt with a host of injuries this season, but it has given us a chance to get a better handle on players further down the depth chart. On Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, that gave us more of running back Jeff Wilson. Matt Breida has been dealing with an ankle injury for much of this season, and early in Sunday’s game, there was an extensive rotation between Breida and Wilson. Breida was not listed as being injured, but he did aggravate the ankle during the game, on a 26-yard screen pass. Wilson finished the game as the team’s sole running back, rushing...

Kyle Shanahan talks Matt Breida’s ankle, Solomon Thomas, rust coming off the bye

The 49ers head coach met with the media on Friday to wrap up the team’s Week 13 preparations for the Seahawks. We’ve got a full transcript. Opening comments: “Injury stuff; [DB] D.J. Reed [Jr.] is out, [WR Pierre] Garçon will be out, [WR Marquise] Goodwin’s out and [G Joshua] Garnett’s out.” In terms of Marquise, respecting his privacy, but he did meet with you yesterday? Is there anything you can tell us about how it went, just his prognosis? “Yeah. He’s going through some serious things that have happened. I’d like to let him tell them and not me. Unless he tells me...

49ers run game shines against Tampa Bay

49ers run game shines against Tampa Bay

Even as the clouds of doom form, the 49ers continue to be a dominant running team There’s plenty of negative press to read about the San Francisco 49ers. This article hopes to add a little sunshine to your life. Last season, we saw Carlos Hyde have one of his best seasons, and Matt Breida showed a lot of potential in Kyle Shanahan’s offense. While a lot of the attention went to Jimmy Garoppolo, the run game did well. This should’ve been expected given Shanahan’s success in Atlanta, where he turned Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman into a dangerous two-headed monster. We hoped to see...

49ers inactives include Alfred Morris, Marquise Goodwin

This opens the door for a lot of reserve playing time. The San Francisco 49ers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers released their inactives for Week 12, and there is one surprise on the 49ers side. Running back Alfred Morris appears to be a healthy scratch. Matt Breida is the team’s starter, but this means Matthew Dayes and/or Jeff Wilson could find themselves getting some work as well. Linebacker Reuben Foster is listed as inactive, but that is because his official release does not happen until Monday (the NFL does not process transactions on Sunday). Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is inactive due...

Matt Breida returns home after a long career of proving himself

Matt Breida returns home after a long career of proving himself

No one wanted him, but he went out and balled up anyways One of the better stories of the San Francisco 49ers turn around has been running back Matt Breida. In college no one wanted him, so he went to Georgia Southern. No one in the pros wanted to draft him, so he went to the 49ers because of Shanahan’s two-back offense. Now he’s one of the top rushers in the league, and may (with some diligence) get 1,000 yards for the season, the first running back to do so since Frank Gore. And his football career all started in Hernando County Florida, two counties over from Hillsborough (home of...

John Lynch: ‘What we need to learn how to do is finish’

The 49ers general manager sat down with Matt Maiocco on the 49ers Insider Podcast It’s probably about the right time for Matt Maiocco to check in with San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch. The 49ers are still elbows deep in a rebuild, and this was a season that fell below many expectations. Lynch was able to go into the good (Matt Breida, George Kittle) and the bad (Solomon Thomas) but was able to assess the first 10 games and identify the one thing the 49ers need to work on: “The thing we look as a team and our standard is that the fact that we’ve been in so many of these...
