49ers vs. Bengals: Jason Verrett listed with San Francisco’s Week 2 inactives

Sep 15, 2019 at 8:36 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers will have EDGE Nick Bosa (ankle) available for their Week 2 road matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Bosa, who was limited in practice on Friday, probably won't see as many snaps as he did in the Niners' Week 1 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But he'll at least manage to provide some presence, most likely in obvious third-down pass-defense packages.

Yet the Niners won't have cornerback Jason Verrett (ankle) active for Week 2, who was listed in the team's inactive report for Sunday's contest:

Verrett had been dealing with his ankle injury into Week 1, although he was cleared for practice last week. Given how well cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Ahkello Witherspoon played in Tampa last week, along with the fact that Verrett doesn't play nickel or on special teams, it's not overly surprising to see San Francisco's offseason pickup inactive.

Running back Tevin Coleman (ankle) is expected to be out for a few weeks, probably not being considered for a return until after the 49ers bye week in Week 4. Same with wide receivers Trent Taylor (foot) and Jalen Hurd (back).

The 49ers and Bengals kick off at 1 p.m. ET from Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.

49ers CB Jason Verrett praises organization's role in his comeback, says it could impact his free agency decision

By Kirk Larrabee

If cornerback Jason Verrett decides to stay with the 49ers past the 2020 season, perhaps the team's training staff may deserve some credit for an assist. Verrett is one of the most intriguing cases among the long list of impending free agents on whom the 49ers must come to a decision before the start of the 2021 league year on March 18. Verrett has a long and difficult injury history that limited him to just six total game appearances from 2016 to 2019. But at age 29, he was finally able to stay mostly healthy throughout 2020 and put on a performance that showed he is still capable of being the type of player he was early in his career when he was selected to the 2015 Pro Bowl as a

Jason Verrett's impressive comeback fuels 49ers' 11th-ranked secondary from PFF

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Jason Verrett always believed he would return to form. For the rest of us, it was a delightful surprise. After all, before this past season, five of his six NFL seasons ended on injured reserve. His one other healthy season came in 2015, which earned him a Pro Bowl nod. Washington quarterback Alex Smith will be this season's AP Comeback Player of the Year. There is no doubt about that. During any other season, Verrett may have had a chance to earn the honor. In his second season with San Francisco, Verrett started all 13 games in which he appeared, accumulating 60 tackles, two tackles for a loss, two interceptions, seven passes defensed, and was Pro Football Focus' eighth-highest graded cornerback. Verrett's play

49ers' Richard Sherman reacts to fan comment that Jets can't have K'Waun Williams or Jason Verrett

K'Waun Williams is one of nearly 40 San Francisco 49ers players scheduled to become free agents. And now, head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have their former defensive coordinator to contend with in free agency. On Thursday, the New York Jets named Robert Saleh as their new head coach, and there is some concern from the 49ers fanbase that many of the free agents on the defensive side of the football might follow their former coach. One fan stated on Twitter that Saleh could have a number of the 49ers defenders, including cornerback Richard Sherman. Two players who the fan hopes are untouchable are cornerbacks Jason Verrett and K'Waun Williams. Sherman (virtually and maybe in real life) laughed at the suggestion that Williams can't be allowed
