One surprise name on the San Francisco 49ers' list of inactive players against the Atlanta Falcons was LB Gerald Hodges. Shortly after the list was revealed, the team announced that Hodges was inactive due to a violation of team rules.


The 49ers did not provide any details beyond that.

The move leaves the 49ers just two inside linebackers – Michael Wilhoite, who will start in place of Hodges, and Nick Bellore. Hodges had started the past seven games for the 49ers.

QB Blaine Gabbert was also on the team's list of inactive players against the Falcons. Christian Ponder will be active for the first time this season and will serve as the backup for Colin Kaepernick.

Never say never. It appears the San Francisco 49ers will enter the 2024 season with both Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel on the roster, assuming contract negotiations with Aiyuk proceed smoothly. Neither wide receiver was traded before or during the draft, making it unlikely either will be dealt before the season. However, in the unpredictable world of the NFL, nothing is certain. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated believes there's still a scenario where a team could pry Samuel from San Francisco's grip. Breer argues that the 49ers have been dealing with a bottleneck of contracts, having handed out large deals to tight end George Kittle, linebacker Fred Warner, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, and defensive end Nick Bosa. This year, they signed Christian McCaffrey to a

The San Francisco 49ers have had success signing their big-name players to contract extensions in recent years, securing deals with George Kittle, Fred Warner, Deebo Samuel, and Nick Bosa. However, that last one didn't get finalized until dangerously close to the start of the regular season. This year, the team has been trying to get a deal done with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. While the 49ers were confident early on, given their successful track record, that a deal would be reached, the two sides reportedly remain far apart in negotiations. Last week, Michael Silver of the San Francisco
