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...

What have you seen from LB Pita Taumoepenu during his time on the practice squad this year? “Pita is relentlessly always working, trying to get whatever look he can. Whether he’s playing linebacker, rush-end, it doesn’t matter. He’s improved. I know [defensive line coach Jeff Zgonina] Z and [pass rush specialist Chris Kiffin] Kiff meet with all those guys after every practice to go over their film, too, to see where they can improve.

Kyle Shanahan talks Broncos, Mike Shanahan, run game

The 49ers head coach met with the media Wednesday morning. We’ve got a full transcript. Opening comments: “Good morning guys. The injuries today; [T Joe] Staley will have his usual vet day, [C/G Weston] Richburg is resting his knee.
