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.

'He's looking to dish out punishment': Jerry Rice evaluates Deebo Samuel ahead of 49ers-Rams

By David Bonilla

Deebo Samuel has been a difference-maker for the San Francisco 49ers this season. He's a big reason why the 49ers made the playoffs and are now in the NFC Championship Game. If San Francisco knocks off the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, punching its ticket to the team's second Super Bowl appearance in three years, Samuel will be a big reason why. No one really knows how to classify Samuel, though. He's a wide receiver, but he also shows off his versatility by playing running back. Samuel thinks of himself as a "wide back"—a wide receiver and running back hybrid. Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice sees Samuel the same way. "I see him as both (wide receiver and running back) because his body structure," Rice told Andrew Siciliano on NFL Network's

Jimmy Garoppolo hopes to be on the field when his San Francisco 49ers face the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. The quarterback isn't just dealing with the torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb suffered in Week 16. He sustained a right shoulder sprain in Sunday's Wild Card win against the Dallas Cowboys. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo will be limited in Tuesday's practice. Before heading out to the practice field, the quarterback spoke with reporters and was asked how confident he would play on Saturday. "We'll feel it out throughout the week," Garoppolo responded. "But yeah,
