49ers vs. Redskins: Injuries reflected in San Francisco’s Week 7 inactives

The San Francisco 49ers are awfully banged up for their Week 7 road contest against the one-win Washington Redskins.

So it shouldn't be a surprise the Niners' inactives for this contest were pretty much determined long before Sunday's deadline:

  • QB C.J. Beathard
  • CB Ahkello Witherspoon
  • WR Deebo Samuel
  • FB Kyle Juszczyk
  • OT Joe Staley
  • OT Mike McGlinchey
  • DT D.J. Jones

One of the more interesting developments was running back Raheem Mostert being active. He found himself on San Francisco's injury report this week with a knee issue and was considered day-to-day, yet it appears as if he'll play against Washington.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel injured his groin late against the Los Angeles Rams last week, meaning veteran wideout Jordan Matthews will see his first regular-season action in a 49ers uniform after being reacquired earlier this season.

Meanwhile, the Niners hope to get equally positive production from their two backup offensive tackles, Justin Skule and Daniel Brunskill.

On the flip side, the Redskins ruled out cornerback Josh Norman. Veteran tight end and former Niners standout, Vernon Davis, was ruled out earlier in the week for Washington.

The 49ers look to improve to 6-0 against the Redskins, and the two teams kick off at 1 p.m. ET from FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.

Kyle Shanahan spoke with the voice of the San Francisco 49ers, Greg Papa, during the team's virtual State of the Franchise event this week. The head coach was asked what he sees from his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, who isn't worried about recovering from an ACL injury this offseason. "I think Jimmy had an unbelievable year last year," Shanahan said. "When you look at him statistically, just percentages and stuff of what he did, he's extremely accurate, kept us in some very good situations, and won a few games for us, too. He had a number of games where he had to come out huge on some 3rd-and-longs, some last-minute drives, and make some big plays that won us some games." Shanahan noted Garoppolo's improvement from last offseason, to the start of the regular
