49ers declared RB Carlos Hyde, QB Josh Johnson, WR Stevie Johnson, CB Perrish Cox, CB Tramaine Brock, S Eric Reid, and LB Ahmad Brooks inactive for Week 17 against the Cardinals.

Frank Gore will close out the season as the 49ers' every-down back.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Raiders still plan to make a "concerted effort" to lure Jim Harbaugh to Oakland.

University of Michigan officials are "confident" Harbaugh is going to Ann Arbor, according to Schefter, but there is no deal done yet. Schefter confirms Michigan "remains the favorite" to hire Harbaugh, but he may as well use other organizations as leverage to get as much money as possible. If Harbaugh does go back to college, it's fair to wonder how long he'll stay there. It's pretty widely accepted that his true passion is for the NFL.

Dave Feldman of CSN Bay Area reports Jim Harbaugh will be the next head coach at the University of Michigan.

Feldman reports Harbaugh will be introduced in Ann Arbor on Tuesday. A Michigan alum, Harbaugh wound up spending four seasons as the 49ers' head coach before a falling out with GM Trent Baalke, compiling a record of 43-19-1 entering Sunday's season finale against Arizona. Harbaugh was the head coach at Stanford in the prior four years and knows the college game. It's believed Baalke will now pursue a coach willing to accept less power. In-house candidates will be DC Vic Fangio and DL coach Jim Tomsula. Together, Harbaugh and Baalke turned around a 49ers organization that had previously missed the playoffs in eight straight years. Their divorce was known to be inevitable entering the 2014 season.

The Sacramento Bee doesn't expect the 49ers to re-sign impending free agent LG Mike Iupati.

Iupati has made the Pro Bowl the last three seasons and is expected to test the open market. The 49ers have rookies Marcus Martin and Brandon Thomas as in-house candidates to replace him.
Dec 27 - 9:07 PM

Bruce Ellington (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Ellington will be a game-time decision against the Cardinals. With Stevie Johnson sidelined, Ellington should remain the No. 3 receiver.
Dec 26 - 6:34 PM

Michael Crabtree (knee) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Crabtree was limited to 15 snaps last week due to his knee issue. He's played through multiple injuries this season, leading to a disappointing 64/657/4 line. An impending free agent, Crabtree faces an uncertain future with the 49ers.
Dec 26 - 6:21 PM

Stevie Johnson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Michael Crabtree (knee) and Brandon Lloyd (groin) are listed as probable. Due a $250,000 roster bonus in 2015, Johnson is a candidate for offseason release.
Dec 26 - 6:12 PM

Carlos Hyde (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Hyde's ankle injury will cost him the final two games of the season. His rookie year ends with 83 carries, 333 yards (4.0 YPC) and four touchdowns. Alfonso Smith will back up Frank Gore in the season finale.
Dec 26 - 6:02 PM

49ers signed KR Trindon Holliday.

They placed OG Alex Boone and S Ray Ventrone on injured reserve to clear roster space for Holliday and someone named "Cameron Fuller."
Dec 26 - 2:46 PM

When asked if he wants to be back with the 49ers next season, impending free agent Michael Crabtree said, "It depends."

Crabtree was a major disappointment this season, recording just 64 catches for 657 yards and four touchdowns. Colin Kaepernick's regression certainly hasn't helped, but there's also concern about Crabtree's ability since coming off a 2013 Achilles' tendon tear. Anquan Boldin has been far more effective in terms of both getting open and YAC. His market is extremely uncertain and the confident Crabtree may have his eye on a more pass-game friendly offense.

Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Hyde will likely miss his second straight game against the Cardinals. Alfonso Smith should continue to back up Frank Gore.
Dec 24 - 4:08 PM

49ers GM Trent Baalke said he wants impending free agent Frank Gore back in 2015.

Baalke is only going to want the career-long Niner to return under his terms. That likely means on a very cheap contract with an understanding that the team needs to feature Carlos Hyde more. Gore, who will turn 32 in May, takes a 230-962-4 line into Sunday's finale against the Cardinals. "Frank is going to want to discuss his role, and what that role is going to be moving forward," Baalke said. "What is the contract itself going to look like? We can both want each other's company, but to make that happen, there are hurdles that are going to have to be crossed."

Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) remained sidelined Tuesday.

It's looking like Hyde will miss his second-straight game. That would leave Bruce Miller and Alfonso Smith behind Frank Gore in what is expected to be Jim Harbaugh's last game coaching the 49ers.
Dec 23 - 5:01 PM

Former 49ers draft pick Marcus Lattimore has re-enrolled at the University of South Carolina with a projected graduation date of January 2016.

He'll also take on an "ambassador" role with the university and its football program. Lattimore is still South Carolina's all-time leader in touchdowns. He tried to spend about a season and a half in the NFL recuperating from two devastating knee injuries, but couldn't get his body in optimal condition to play in the pros, understandably. Lattimore turned 23 this past October.
Dec 22 - 5:03 PM

Michael Crabtree (knee) was limited to 15 snaps in Saturday's loss to the Chargers.

Crabtree gutted it out through a questionable tag, but wasn't right and didn't want to push it in a meaningless game. He did have to come back into the overtime contest late after other members of the receiving corps got nicked up. Consider Crabtree very questionable for the finale.
