49ers inactives vs. Rams: Richard Sherman active; C.J. Beathard leaves team following family tragedy

Dec 21, 2019 at 3:59 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers announced their list of inactive players for the team's final regular-season home game, a game against the Los Angeles Rams. The following players will not suit up with their teammates for tonight's matchup at Levi's Stadium.

  • QB C.J. Beathard
  • DE Dee Ford
  • TE Daniel Helm
  • WR Jordan Matthews
  • S Jaquiski Tartt
  • DT Jullian Taylor
  • RB Jeff Wilson

Cornerback Richard Sherman, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury since Week 14, has looked on track to play all week. He is indeed active for tonight's game. Also active is cornerback K'Waun Williams, who has been recovering from a concussion, also suffered in Week 14. He, like Sherman, did not play last weekend against the Atlanta Falcons.

Beathard is not at the game. He learned earlier today that his younger brother, Clayton Beathard, was among two individuals fatally stabbed this morning outside of a Nashville bar. C.J. Beathard has left the team to be with his family following the tragedy.

Defensive end Dee Ford (quadricep, hamstring), safety Jaquiski Tartt (ribs), and defensive tackle Jullian Taylor (elbow) are each dealing with injuries and on Thursday were ruled out of tonight's game.

Marcell Harris will start his third consecutive game at strong safety in place of Tartt, the 49ers announced on Saturday. Tartt has not played since Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Wide receiver Jordan Matthews, tight end Jordan Helm, and running back Jeff Wilson are healthy inactives.

Guard Mike Person was listed as "questionable" for tonight's game but is active and available.

There's a training camp battle brewing between San Francisco 49ers cornerbacks Emmanuel Moseley and Ahkello Witherspoon. One will earn the right to start opposite veteran Richard Sherman, who believes Moseley has the upper hand after a strong 2019 campaign. Moseley, an undrafted player out of Tennessee, is entering his third NFL season. He started nine games last season after taking over for Witherspoon, who was sidelined with a foot injury. Moseley also started the 49ers' final two playoff games, including Super Bowl LIV. Sherman envisions Moseley getting the early snaps with the first-team defense when the 49ers finally get onto the practice field in August. "I think he'll have a whole training camp of starting,"

49ers' Richard Sherman: NFL will 'fight tooth and nail' to finish 2020 season

The NFL is doing everything in its power to ensure that the 2020 season, in some form, takes place. If that means conceding to a few demands from the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), so be it. The alternative—no season—is a less-favorable option. The NFL has finally agreed to daily testing when it wanted less frequent checks for the COVID-19 virus. The league has yielded to the NFLPA, saying now that it is okay with eliminating the preseason altogether after fighting to keep half or even just one weeks' worth of exhibition matchups. Many are skeptical that the NFL can pull off a 16-game season. Some even doubt that Week 1's slate of games will be played. Something is likely to give with the pandemic showing no signs of slowing.

Continuity. Cornerback Richard Sherman expects that to be the San Francisco 49ers' biggest advantage heading into an unprecedented and unpredictable season. NFL teams haven't had proper offseasons due to the coronavirus pandemic. When squads gather on the practice field during training camp, it will be their first time doing so since last season. Yes, teams have been working hard this offseason. That work has been conducted virtually, though. Players have been training on their own, save a few player-organized practices that ended due to an increase in positive COVID-19 tests. Sherman expects the 49ers' continuity to help the team overcome the strangeness of this offseason, and fuel a quest to return to the Super Bowl. "This year, we
