49ers Week 15 inactives vs. Seahawks: Jaquiski Tartt remains out

Dec 16, 2018 at 11:38 AM--

It looks like the San Francisco 49ers will have to keep rookie safety Marcell Harris in the starting lineup, as veteran safety Jaquiski Tartt will miss his second straight game in Week 15 versus the Seattle Seahawks.

The San Francisco 49ers will get yet another longer look at rookie defensive back Marcell Harris in Week 15, as he'll likely wind up assuming the strong safety spot in the place of the injured Jaquiski Tartt, who is out for the second straight game with a shoulder injury and finds himself yet again on the Niners' inactive list.

Harris, who missed three tackles back in Week 13 versus the Seattle Seahawks, came on much stronger last week when the Denver Broncos were in town, making a number of open-field tackles on crucial third- and fourth-down conversion attempts in the second half of that game. With the Seahawks boasting a league-high 2,000 rush yards entering this contest, however, Harris will have to replicate his efforts from last week and avoid those he had up in Seattle.

On a good note, the 49ers should benefit from a healthy return of running back Matt Breida, who missed Week 14 after aggravating an ankle injury the previous week versus the Seahawks. Breida currently is tied for second in the NFL with an average of 5.6 yards per carry, and he'll look to rediscover some success against a Seahawks defense allowing an average of 5.0 yards per carry -- fourth worst in the league.

Here's the full list of San Francisco inactives for Week 15:

  • CB K'Waun Williams
  • S Jaquiski Tartt
  • RB Alfred Morris
  • S Tyree Robinson
  • OL Erik Magnuson
  • OL Shon Coleman
  • DL Sheldon Day

With Williams still dealing with an injury, it looks as if rookie defensive back D.J. Reed will continue to see time at nickel, while Day's placement suggests second-year pro D.J. Jones returns to a prominent role at nose tackle.

Such was the case last week versus the Broncos too.

The 49ers and Seahawks kick off on Dec. 16 at 4:05 p.m. ET from Levi's Stadium.

49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt wasn't worried about Jamal Adams rumors, feels Tavon Austin has 'still got it'

There were a lot of rumors surrounding the San Francisco 49ers' reported interest in safety Jamal Adams before the New York Jets sent the All-Pro defender to the Seattle Seahawks. General manager John Lynch eventually stated that the 49ers had given the idea of pursuing Adams some thought. However, they knew that adding him would be too costly. "Being up there against it with what's happening in the (salary) cap due to the pandemic, it just wasn't a reality for us," Lynch said last month. "Yes, our division is getting better. We understand that. That's why we're working so hard to get better." Added Lynch: "Were we interested? Of course you would be interested

Veteran San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman recently said third-year cornerback Emmanuel Moseley would greatly benefit from the first-team reps he is about to get in training camp. That sounds like a vote of confidence from Sherman that Moseley is a shoo-in to fight off any competition for the starting job opposite him. "I think he'll have a whole training camp of starting," Sherman told The Athletic. "It's a different preparation and a different mindset when you come into the year knowing where you stand and being able to prepare in that way. And I think that will be good for him." Sherman sat down — virtually — with the

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider recently admitted that San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle was among the reasons why the division rivals gave up a haul to acquire safety Jamal Adams. "But you have to have so much speed on the back, especially when we're playing against Kyler Murray and George Kittle and Robert Woods and all these guys that seem like they are just running all over the place," Schneider told Peter King of NBC Sports. "You've got to have as much speed on the field. So adding a guy like Jamal who has that versatility to play down in the box and play in the hole and play man coverage is really important to us." The
