49ers place Matt Breida and Dante Pettis on injured reserve, make other roster moves

Dec 29, 2018 at 1:05 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have officially announced that the team has placed running back Matt Breida and wide receiver Dante Pettis on injured reserve. The 49ers promoted defensive lineman Ryan Delaire and wide receiver Max McCaffrey from the practice squad to the active roster to fill their spots.

Delaire will wear number 92 while McCaffrey will wear number 14.

Both Breida and Pettis were ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. Breida has been dealing with an ankle injury, which was re-aggravated last weekend against the Chicago Bears, while Pettis left the game with a knee injury.

The 49ers signed Breida as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Southern in 2017. He has 814 rushing yards on 153 carries (5.3 yards per carry) with three touchdowns and has added 27 receptions for 261 yards with two receiving touchdowns through 14 games and 13 starts this season.

The 49ers made Pettis a second-round draft pick out of Washington in April. He has 27 receptions for 467 yards with five touchdowns through 12 games and seven starts this season. Pettis leads all wide receivers in receiving yards and all 49ers players in touchdown receptions.

The 49ers initially signed Delaire to the practice squad on September 26. He was promoted to the active roster on October 6 and then waived on October 15. The 49ers re-signed Delaire to the practice squad on October 17.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Delaire as an undrafted free agent out of Towson in 2015. He spent two seasons with the Carolina Panthers (2015-16) before a brief stint with the Indianapolis Colts.

The 49ers signed McCaffrey from the Green Bay Packers practice squad on December 13, 2017. He was active for the team's final three games of last season. The 49ers waived McCaffrey on August 29 due to an injury and signed him to the practice squad on November 27.

Sam Acho picks 49ers' Trey Lance as 2nd-year QB to make biggest jump in 2022

Last week, ESPN analyst Rob Ninkovich looked at the 2021 rookie quarterback class and stated he expects Trey Lance to make the "biggest jump" in Year 2. Another ESPN analyst, Sam Acho, agrees with that prediction. Why is Lance the best second-year quarterback, in Acho's opinion? It's because of the weapons around him. The 22-year-old quarterback will have wide receiver Deebo Samuel (assuming the offseason rift can be mended) and tight end George Kittle at his disposal. "Yes, there was a reason Zach Wilson was the second pick overall last year," Acho said. "There's a reason Trey Lance was third, right? Because he's that good as well." More critical for identifies 49ers' biggest roster hole heading into training camp

Jun 24 writer Kevin Patra took a look around the league and ranked the 10 biggest remaining roster holes heading into training camp. Some teams appear set for the 2022 season. Others still have work to do, finding solutions to bolster potential weaknesses. Patra looked at each team's biggest weakness and ranked it against other teams' biggest weaknesses. The San Francisco 49ers came in at No. 2, with the center position being identified as the Bay Area team's biggest weakness. Assuming right tackle Mike McGlinchey returns healthy, the 49ers appear set (as far as knowing who the starters will be) along the edges of the offensive line.

Are their 12 teams in the NFL with better rosters than the San Francisco 49ers? It doesn't seem like there would be, given the team's talent and postseason success in 2022. But in their recent roster rankings for 2022, Pro Football Focus has the 49ers ranked 13th in the league, behind most of last season's playoff field and even a few teams that didn't make the postseason. Much has happened in terms of player movement since Super Bowl LVI, which has shuffled PFF's rankings to look quite a bit different than they might have at the end of last year. The 49ers are the lowest-rated of last season's final four playoff teams,

CBS analyst calls 49ers' situations with Deebo Samuel and Jimmy Garoppolo 'messy' and 'awkward'

In May, former offensive lineman turned broadcaster and analyst Ryan Harris made headlines stating that sources inside the San Francisco 49ers shared doubts about second-year quarterback Trey Lance. He also said that some expected Jimmy Garoppolo to start come Week 1. Harris rejoined CBS Sports HQ to share his thoughts on two big 49ers-related offseason storylines—Deebo Samuel and Garoppolo. Earlier this offseason, Samuel requested to be traded after watching several of his wide receiver peers cash in while the 49ers star waited for his own contract extension. San Francisco had hoped to trade Garoppolo in March. However, the quarterback
