HC Kyle Shanahan said he envisions using Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida on the field at the same time next season.

Shanahan said he planned on using McKinnon and Breida at the same time this season, but McKinnon of course tore his ACL before those plans came to fruition. Since it was a "clean" tear and it happened in early September, McKinnon should be ready well ahead of the start of the 2019 season, but Breida's emergence has complicated McKinnon's 2019 outlook. The 49ers' usage of McKinnon and Breida will be a storyline going into next year's training camp, but Shanahan has made it clear that using both of them on the field together is in his plans.

49ers LB Reuben Foster (hamstring) will return to practice after the Week 11 bye.

So will Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) and Pierre Garcon (knee). Foster hasn't played since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 8, but HC Kyle Shanahan expects him to at least practice ahead of the Week 12 game against Tampa Bay. If he can get through practices without any setbacks, Foster should be ready throw on the pads versus the Bucs.

Pierre Garcon (knee) is expected to practice when the 49ers return from their Week 11 bye.

Garcon was ruled out for Week 10 after not practicing at all leading up to the game, but HC Kyle Shanahan said he will practice ahead of the Week 12 game against the Bucs. Even with Tampa Bay playing porous defense, Garcon will only be a WR5 since he doesn't have a single game with over 60 receiving yards this season.

Raiders waived DE Kony Ealy.

Ealy was signed just last week, and he was inactive for last Sunday's game against the Chargers. It's not a great look for the defensive end, who has bounced from team to team since being selected in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

HC Kyle Shanahan said Nick Mullens will continue to be the 49ers' starting quarterback until he says otherwise.

That means Mullens will be the starter coming out of the 49ers' Week 11 bye when they visit Tampa Bay. The second-year undrafted free agent took advantage of the tanking Raiders in his debut two weeks ago, and he played well enough on Monday Night Football to keep his starting job over C.J. Beathard. In total, Mullens has completed 70-percent of his passes for 512 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions.

HC Bill O'Brien said DeAndre Carter is a "prime candidate" to return punts.

The Texans waived third-rounder Tyler Ervin to make room for Carter, who was waived by the Eagles just last week. Carter has returned 10 punts for an average of 10.3 yards this season, which is slightly better than Ervin's 8.3 yard average.

ESPN's Jenna Laine reports Bucs WLB Lavonte David is dealing with a sprained MCL and "could miss some time."

David actually played through the injury against the Redskins but now that the adrenaline has worn off, he is uncertain. With their season already down in flames, the Bucs do not need to needlessly risk 28-year-old David's health.

Randall Cobb (hamstring) remained sidelined on Tuesday.

Cobb reportedly won't make the trip to Seattle, meaning he will miss his second-straight game Thursday after suffering a setback last Thursday. Equanimeous St. Brown is the Packers' fill-in No. 3 receiver behind Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Monday's Rams/Chiefs game has been moved from Mexico City back to Los Angeles due to poor field conditions at Azteca Stadium.

It's surprising but absolutely the right call based on pictures and videos circulating on social media. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier Tuesday that some players were considering boycotting the game they were so concerned. Although moving the game was the right thing to do, it's an utter fiasco for the NFL, which continues to be confoundingly bad at ensuring neutral-site fields are in proper condition. The move has zero ramifications for fantasy.

Eagles TE Richard Rodgers (knee, injured reserve) has been cleared to resume practicing.

It opens Rodgers' three-week window to be activated to the active roster. A poor blocker who is not needed behind pass catchers Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, Rodgers won't have a route to snaps on offense.
Nov 13 - 4:44 PM

Rams KR Pharoh Cooper (ankle, injured reserve) has been cleared to resume practicing.

It opens Cooper's three-week window to come off injured reserve. Even with Cooper Kupp (knee) on injured reserve, Cooper should be lightly used on offense upon his return. He's a return specialist.
Nov 13 - 4:42 PM

Cardinals placed RG Justin Pugh on injured reserve with a left knee injury, ending his season.

It ends an injury-plagued first year in Arizona for the former Giant. Pugh missed two earlier games with a hand injury. The No. 19 overall pick of the 2013 draft will head into 2019 having not appeared in 16 games since his rookie season. He has averaged nine appearances since 2016. Pugh is set to make $5 million in 2019. He had been ineffective before going down. Pugh's backup is Jeremy Vujnovich.
Nov 13 - 4:36 PM

Titans waived FB Jalston Fowler.

UDFA RB Dalyn Dawkins has been promoted from the practice squad to take Fowler's roster spot. Fowler had yet to play an offensive snap this season. The Titans would rather use his spot on a true runner.
Nov 13 - 4:18 PM

Bucs placed G/C Evan Smith on injured reserve with a hip injury, ending his season.

Smith made seven appearances as a reserve this season. The 32-year-old is signed through 2019.
Nov 13 - 4:13 PM

Patriots waived RB Kenjon Barner.

With Sony Michel back in good health and Cordarrelle Patterson having proven capable of handling some carries, Barner was no longer needed on the 53-man roster. He was with the Patriots for five weeks.
