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 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.
