The San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants may have nine Super Bowl titles between the two of them, but 2017 has been a nightmare of epic proportions for the once proud organizations. How bad has it been? Well, coming into Week 10, the two teams have combined for one win, while seeing a whopping 38 of it's players go on Injured Reserve. For the Niners, the rest of the season is merely about seeing who can contribute next year, and getting young players valuable snaps.

San Francisco will have an added reinforcement this week however, as T Joe Staley (eye) returns to the lineup to help solidify the offensive line. That's the good news. The bad news is the team will be without DT Solomon Thomas, TE George Kittle, and WR Trent Taylor, all of whom are key rookies missing valuable experience.

Here's the complete list of inactives for both teams:

TE George Kittle
LB Elijah Lee
DL Aaron Lynch
LB Pita Taumoepenu
WR Trent Taylor
DL Solomon Thomas
OL Darrell Williams

CB Donte Deayon
LB B.J. Goodson
LB Devon Kennard
LB Keenan Robinson
WR Travis Rudoplh
QB Davis Webb
OT Chad Wheeler

Joe Staley: Jimmy Garoppolo will start, but 49ers are more exciting with Trey Lance

By Marc Adams
Oct 12

Former San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle, Joe Staley, went on KNBR Radio on Monday to discuss the 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals. As expected, the conversation went to the quarterback situation with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance, including who Staley believed would be under center in two weeks when the 49ers play the Indianapolis Colts. "I think he made his decision before the season even started," Staley said on the Papa & Lund show. "If Jimmy's healthy, he's going to be our quarterback this year. They want to use it as a red-shirt year, almost, for Trey this season. I was encouraged." That seemed to be the plan in the offseason, to have Lance sit and learn. Even after the game on Sunday, Kyle Shanahan continued to hold his ground that

Do the 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Joe Staley thinks so...and he's not alone

Do the San Francisco 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Former 49ers great, and current analyst, Joe Staley, thinks so. And he's not the only one. Staley went on KNBR's Papa & Lund show on Monday to talk 49ers. In addition to saying Kyle Shanahan will likely go back to Jimmy Garoppolo in two weeks, but that the offense is more exciting with Trey Lance, Staley spent some time talking about the identity of the team. Particularly, the identity of the offense. "What's been shocking to me is that, one of the things, too, has been that stretch zone, but all the play-action roll-outs, that was one of our identities, the keep game. And it hasn't been

49ers-Cardinals Injury Report: Jimmy Garoppolo, George Kittle don't practice; Trent Williams returns

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Things are starting to trend towards rookie quarterback Trey Lance making his first NFL start. Jimmy Garoppolo missed his second consecutive practice after suffering a calf injury during Week 4. That makes it unlikely the veteran starter will be healthy enough to lead the offense against the Cardinals. Tight end George Kittle also missed his second consecutive practice. He is dealing with the same calf injury that sidelined him for most of last week. However, he still played this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. If Lance does start, he will probably have left tackle Trent Williams helping keep
