LB Gerald Hodges inactive against Falcons for violating team rules

Dec 18, 2016 at 12:05 PM--


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.

It sounds like a safe bet that wide receiver Mohamed Sanu will be on the field for the 49ers against the New York Jets this weekend, even though he only has one practice under his belt after officially joining the team Friday. The 49ers officially announced the signing of the veteran receiver late Friday morning after his agent revealed earlier in the week Sanu would be joining the team on a one-year deal. Sanu, 31, brings some much-needed depth to a 49ers receiving room that has been decimated by injury and also has the ability to step in and contribute right away after spending a season in Shanahan's system while Shanahan was the offensive coordinator in Atlanta in 2016. Shanahan expressed confidence earlier in the week in Sanu's ability to help the 49ers

Some defensive line help may be on the way. It looks like Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah's gamble to turn down an offer from the San Francisco 49ers and await a better offer from a more desperate team paid off. That more desperate team, however, is now the 49ers after second-year defensive end Nick Bosa left Week 2's win over the New York Jets with what is believed to be a season-ending ACL injury. The 49ers are flying in Ansah, 31, to meet up with the team on the East Coast, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The expectation is that the defender will sign with the team after going through another round of COVID-19
