49ers inactives for Week 17 vs. Rams: Marquise Goodwin, Garrett Celek out

Dec 30, 2018 at 12:02 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are going to be down some offensive weapons for their 2018 finale against the Los Angeles Rams, missing wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and tight end Garrett Celek. Both appeared on the team's Week 17 inactive list.

Goodwin has been dealing with calf and shoulder issues, while Celek suffered a concussion during the Niners' Week 16 loss to the Chicago Bears a week ago. Both players were ruled out for Sunday's contest in L.A.

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

  • WR Marquise Goodwin
  • S Tyree Robinson
  • OL Erik Magnuson
  • OL Shon Coleman
  • TE Garrett Celek
  • NT Earl Mitchell
  • DL Sheldon Day

The 49ers also placed running back Matt Breida (ankle) and wide receiver Dante Pettis (knee) on injured reserve this week, then called up wide receivers Max McCaffrey and Steven Dunbar Jr. from the practice squad to fill the voids. No. 2 running back Jeff Wilson figures to get a bulk of carries against a Rams defense allowing an average of 5.0 yards per carry this season -- second worst in the NFL.

San Francisco is also going with a youth movement up front, continuing to keep defensive tackles Earl Mitchell and Sheldon Day on the inactive list. This indicates that second-year nose tackle D.J. Jones will get the start after impressing down the stretch this season.

The 49ers and Rams kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET from Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Roster moves: D.J. Reed's season ends, Richie James taken off reserve/COVID-19 list, two activated, no 49ers opt out of season so far

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch announced a few roster moves before a Monday afternoon press conference conducted via Zoom. One was the decision to place safety D.J. Reed on the reserve/non-football injury list, effectively ending his season. The versatile defensive back suffered a torn pectoral muscle in June. "That's a tough one for us," Lynch told reporters. "The earliest we might have had D.J. back was early November. It's a four-to-six-month injury, so that's been an active conversation Kyle and myself and the medical folks have been having. Ultimately, too difficult to keep a roster spot for something that may go into December. So we made that

Earlier this year, NFL teams were expecting a significant salary-cap increase in 2021. A new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the league and the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) had been struck, and future television contracts should have increased revenue opportunities, and with it, the ability to spend more on players. Then COVID-19 happened. Here we are, entering the sixth month of a pandemic. The timeframe is longer if you look at the worldwide impact. The coronavirus has impacted everyone's daily lives, and the sports world has not been immune to the effects. There probably won't be fans in NFL stadiums. Teams that are allowed to have the public attend games will have to limit the number of spectators. That will impact
