49ers Week 8 inactives vs. Panthers: Joe Staley (fibula) still unavailable

Oct 27, 2019 at 11:44 AM--

There was an outside chance San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley (fibula) was going to be able to suit up for the team's Week 8 home bout against the 4-2 Carolina Panthers.

But Staley, who was projected to return in late October or early November, won't be available for Sunday's contest at Levi's Stadium. And neither will be fellow starting tackle, Mike McGlinchey, who is also listed with the Niners' Week 8 inactives:

  • QB C.J. Beathard
  • WR Marquise Goodwin
  • CB Ahkello Witherspoon
  • FB Kyle Juszczyk
  • OT Mike McGlinchey
  • OT Joe Staley
  • DT Jullian Taylor

Witherspoon is also projected to return soon, although he missed the week of practice leading up to Sunday's game.

Interestingly enough, wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is listed as inactive. Goodwin missed practice during the week, too, tending to a personal matter, which head coach Kyle Shanahan did not disclose. However, his role on San Francisco's offense is likely to be filled by the team's recent acquisition, veteran wideout Emmanuel Sanders, whom the team picked up via a trade with the Denver Broncos earlier this week.

The 49ers and Panthers kick off on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 4:05 p.m. ET from Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.

Raheem Mostert has some big aspirations. The biggest football-related one might be the San Francisco 49ers running back being motivated by Canton. He hopes to have a good enough career to one day find himself in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. If last season's Green Bay Packers defense were the voters, Mostert might be a shoo-in. The former undrafted player rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries against the Packers defense in the NFC Championship Game, helping to punch the 49ers' ticket to Super Bowl LIV. "[The performance] really opened up my eyes," Mostert said in April. "[I said], 'Hey look, I did this. Why stop? Just keep going. Keep doing the right
