Player News - 49ers

Date: Team: Pos:

49ers ILB Reuben Foster (high-ankle sprain) has shed his walking boot.

Foster seems to be progressing quickly — he was claiming he would be ready for Week 2 — but he'll likely miss at least one more game after going down in Week 1.
Sep 19 - 3:42 PM

George Kittle (hip) did not practice Monday.

Kittle has proved rather injury-prone in his short time in the NFL, dealing with hamstring and calf issues before the hip injury. He's not a fantasy factor.
Sep 18 - 8:11 PM

49ers SS Eric Reid (knee) is expected to miss multiple weeks.

Reid is dealing with a PCL issue, and coach Kyle Shanahan said he's definitely out for Week 3 against the Rams and likely longer. Jaquiski Tartt is expected to take over as the starter, but he's dealing with a neck injury.
Sep 18 - 8:09 PM

George Kittle caught both his targets for 13 yards Week 2 against the Seahawks.

It is a step back after Kittle was targeted six times in the season opener. Averaging just 5.7 yards per catch for a bad passing attack, the rookie is not a fantasy option at this point.
Sep 17 - 8:34 PM

Marquise Goodwin hauled in 3-of-6 targets for 26 yards Week 2 against the Seahawks.

Goodwin actually tied for the team lead with Pierre Garcon in both catches and yards, although he dropped what would have been an important catch with the 49ers driving in the second half. Goodwin now has 12 targets through two games, but he is at best a big-play dart throw in fantasy.
Sep 17 - 8:31 PM

Pierre Garcon hauled in 3-of-5 targets for 26 yards in the 49ers' Week 2 loss to the Seahawks.

Garcon did see some of Richard Sherman, but his struggles are more on Brian Hoyer and the passing offense as a whole than the defense. A target hog, he should find much more success in better matchups. Garcon will be a WR3 on Thursday night against the Rams.
Sep 17 - 8:30 PM

Brian Hoyer completed 15-of-27 passes for 99 yards and an interception in the 49ers' Week 2 loss to the Seahawks.

Even with Carlos Hyde providing a quality rushing attack, Hoyer could not do anything against the Seahawks. He now has just 292 yards through two games while the offense has failed to find the end zone. He is highly unlikely to be demoted this week with a Thursday night game up next, but the 49ers should see what they have in C.J. Beathard at some point. Hoyer will at best be a back-end QB2 against the Rams.
Sep 17 - 8:21 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 15 times for 124 yards and caught 3-of-6 targets for 19 yards in the 49ers' Week 2 loss to the Seahawks.

Hyde was the offense on a day Brian Hoyer threw for just 99 yards. His 61-yard scamper -- the longest of his career -- set up the 49ers' first field goal while a 27 yarder set up the second. Even with those runs taken out of the equation, Hyde looked great against a tough defense, routinely bouncing off tacklers. Playing in an offense which has yet to score a touchdown, Hyde is averaging just over seven yards a carry so far this season. He should be treated as a low-end RB1 for Thursday night's matchup with the Rams.
Sep 17 - 8:13 PM

49ers SS Eric Reid exited Week 2 against the Seahawks with a knee injury.

Reid pulled up with a non-contact knee injury before halftime, but he was back on the field after the break. After limping off once, Reid once again went down with a non-contact injury in the third quarter. At this point, it would be surprising if he got back into the game.
Sep 17 - 6:26 PM

49ers FS Jimmie Ward (hamstring) is active for Week 2 against the Seahawks.

Ward sat out the season opener, but he was able to get in a full session Friday and is ready to go. Jaquiski Tartt will head back to the bench. San Francisco declared LB Reuben Foster (ankle), CB Ahkello Witherspoon, OL Erik Magnuson, DL Xavier Cooper, S Lorenzo Jerome, LB Pita Taumoepenu, and WR Victor Bolden Jr. inactive for Week 2.
Sep 17 - 2:57 PM

49ers promoted CB Asa Jackson from the practice squad.

Jackson could be an option at nickel back with K'Waun Williams. The 49ers waived CB Keith Reaser to clear a roster spot.
Sep 16 - 4:36 PM

49ers TE George Kittle (hamstring, calf) was removed from the Week 2 injury report.

Kittle practiced fully the last two days and was expected to play. He's a low-end TE2 for Sunday's Seattle matchup.
Sep 15 - 7:02 PM

49ers ILB Reuben Foster (ankle) is out for Week 2 against the Seahawks.

Foster was hoping to play through an ankle sprain this week but wasn't able to get in any practice reps. Consider him week to week.
Sep 15 - 4:44 PM

49ers FS Jimmie Ward (hamstring) is questionable for Week 2 against the Seahawks.

Ward has been practicing on a limited basis for the past two weeks after missing most of training camp with a hamstring injury. Jaquiski Tartt would draw another start at free safety if Ward can't get the green light for Sunday.
Sep 15 - 4:22 PM

49ers TE George Kittle (hamstring, calf) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday.

The rookie tight end will be out there against the Seahawks. For now, Kittle is a low-end TE2, albeit one with room to grow.
