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.

While ESPN's Rob Demovsky claimed the below rumor is false, and that no calls were made, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that the San Francisco 49ers did indeed reach out to the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday to inquire about Aaron Rodgers. Although, Pelissero reports that no formal offer was made. This is NOT true, I'm told by a source with direct knowledge. Repeat NOT true. NO CALLS, per source. https://t.co/qelhNfH3R5— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky)



Rapoport explains 49ers' thinking when it comes to the No. 3 pick, and why Justin Fields may be out

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported on Sunday night that the San Francisco 49ers' decision regarding the No. 3 overall pick had come down to Mac Jones of Alabama versus Trey Lance of North Dakota State. If accurate, that means Justin Fields of Ohio State is likely out of the picture in the minds of head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch. There was also a report from Todd McShay of ESPN that sources around the league believe that Shanahan is leaning toward Jones, while the 49ers' personnel department is pushing for Lance. That matches up with what



Richard Sherman hasn't ruled out return to 49ers

Cornerback Richard Sherman remains available. The free agent doesn't know what his NFL future holds, has had teams reach out to him, and hasn't even ruled out a possible return to the San Francisco 49ers. "Obviously, a return to San Francisco isn't out of the cards," Sherman told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. "I've had conversations with Seattle. I've had conversations with the Saints, the Raiders, and we've just got to wait to see how things play out." Things are on pause until the draft is complete. Sherman doesn't expect to see the interest increase until after that, as NFL teams look to add younger defenders on rookie contracts. The 49ers could select a cornerback on Day 2 of



Why didn't the 49ers draft a WR, TE, or DE? It just worked out that way

By Kirk Larrabee

An ideal situation for any NFL team would be to come out of the NFL Draft having selected the best players on its board at their draft spots that also happened to be at positions of need, but things usually don't fall into place that easily. Such was the case in the 2021 NFL Draft for the San Francisco 49ers, who were able to fill multiple needs with their picks but also had a couple of moments where they came away with players at positions they weren't planning to address due to those players being the top prospects on their board. For anyone wondering why the 49ers didn't add some depth at areas where they could have used it, such as wide receiver, tight end, or EDGE, that's the reason. The 49ers made their selections based on how the draft played out, and as a
