Jaquiski Tartt is active and will start in Week 3 for 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers (0-2) will take the field in Week 3 looking for their first win of 2017 against an improved Los Angeles Rams squad (1-1) that appears to be much more competitive than in recent years. Victories have been hard to come by of late for the Niners, as the team's lost 16 of its last 19 games dating back to the end of 2015. The silver lining in that though, if there is one, would be that all three of those victories have come at the expense of the very franchise they will be lining up against this evening. The 49ers will also be looking to score their first touchdown of 2017, and are one of only two teams that are yet to do so (Cincinnati Bengals).

While San Francisco will again be without star rookie linebacker Reuben Foster (ankle) as well as safety Eric Reid (knee), safety Jaquiski Tartt (neck) is active and expected to start. Here's the rest of the inactive players for both sides:

49ers inactives:
LB Reuben Foster
S Eric Reid
LB Pita Taumoepenu
CB Ahkello Witherspoon
DL Xavier Cooper
OL Erik Magnuson
WR Kendrick Bourne

Rams Inactives:
QB Brandon Allen
CB Kayvon Webster
LB Ejuan Ptice
OL Andrew Donnal
OL Cornelius Lucas
DB Marqui Christian
RB Malcolm Brown

San Francisco 49ers fans appear to be in a bit of a mini panic regarding the fate of their favorite NFL team.

49ers rookie Trey Lance to make first NFL start, says Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers hoped quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be able to take part in today's practice and test whether his right leg was strong enough to play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Garoppolo didn't, and he has now missed an entire week's worth of practice. After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers are ruling Garoppolo "out" for the Week 5 matchup and that rookie Trey Lance would start in the veteran's place. With Garoppolo sidelined, Lance has received the majority of the practice reps this week. "The more reps you get, the better you're going to get," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR. "He does things exceptionally well. I think he's taken to our offense well. With every rep, he's going to get
