49ers signing QB Matt Barkley

Brian Hoyer will no longer be the lone quarterback on the San Francisco 49ers roster. He will be joined by Matt Barkley, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

.
Hoyer may have had some influence on the decision. After all, the two were teammates with Chicago last season. Barkley, a fourth-round selection by the Philadelphia Eagles out of USC in 2013, played in seven games and started six for the Bears last season. He completed 59.7-percent of his passes for 1,611 yards, six touchdowns, and 14 interceptions. Barkley also spent a season (2015) with the Arizona Cardinals.


Chicago signed Barkley on September 4, 2016, and he was elevated to the active roster on September 22, 2016. After Hoyer was injured in a game against the Green Bay Packers, Barkley made his first NFL start. An injury to Jay Cutler would once again force Barkley into the starting role.

Last season, Barkley led Chicago to a 26-6 victory over the 49ers. He completed 11 of his 18 passes for 192 yards in that game.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 3 contest against the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The 49ers lost defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas for the season. Both suffered ACL injuries in a span of three plays against the New York Jets. The good news is that tight end George Kittle returned to practice on Wednesday after missing Week 2 with a sprained MCL and bone bruise, per ESPN. He was limited, though. San Francisco is unlikely to have its two top running backs — Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman — on Sunday. Mostert's MCL sprain isn't expected to lead to an

With a couple of notable exceptions, the San Francisco 49ers stifled the New York Giants on the ground Sunday, which played a big role in the team's 36-9 blowout win at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The 49ers held the Giants to 66 yards on 15 carries, with 49 of those yards coming on runs from quarterback Daniel Jones. It was part of a dominant effort overall that saw the 49ers hold the Giants to 231 total yards while limiting them to 13 first downs and preventing them from running a single play in the red zone. "I think it's all about just everybody doing their job," 49ers linebacker Fred Warner said after the win. "With the run game, it's all about a mindset knowing that you want to come out and you want to attack -- just attack their offense.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday afternoon and confirmed that the team has agreed to terms with veteran pass rusher Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah. The 49ers are expected to receive official word soon that defensive end Nick Bosa will be lost for the season after suffering what is strongly believed to be an ACL injury during Sunday's costly victory over the New York Jets. "We agreed to terms with Ziggy," Shanahan said. "Once he passes the COVID test(s) and everything, it should be official, and hopefully, we can get him in here for Wednesday practice." Shanahan was asked what Ansah brings to the 49ers amid the
