49ers inactives for playoff bout vs. Vikings: Dee Ford will play

Jan 11, 2020 at 12:15 PM--



The San Francisco 49ers are optimistic their defensive front will be as potent as it was earlier in the regular season, largely due to an earlier report EDGE Dee Ford (quad, hamstring) would be active for the team's NFC divisional bout against the visiting Minnesota Vikings at Levi's Stadium.

Ford, who played only a handful of snaps in Week 14 and missed every other game since Week 11 otherwise, was listed as questionable for the contest. But with the report, along with the Niners' inactives for Saturday's bout, it looks as if he'll play.

Here are San Francisco's inactives for the game:


Ford has played roughly 20 percent of the defense's regular-season snaps, and one might expect him to be used solely on third downs and obvious pass-rushing situations against Minnesota.

Al-Shaair being inactive also reinforces the 49ers feel confident enough with the return of starting linebacker Kwon Alexander, who is also active after being promoted from injured reserve prior to Saturday's game.

The Niners and Vikings kick off on Saturday at 4:35 p.m. ET from Levi's Stadium.

The San Francisco 49ers lost their second consecutive game and remain winless at home as the team fell to 2-3 in the standings. The latest embarrassment came courtesy of a 43-17 beating at the hands of the visiting Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The 49ers are exiting what many considered to be the easier portion of their schedule and now embark on a five-game stretch that includes the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, and New Orleans Saints. First, they will host the Los Angeles Rams before playing three of four games on the road before the bye week. With San Francisco's Super Bowl hopes becoming less and less realistic, the team's playoff hopes also diminish with each loss. Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers need to turn things around and start

Peter King: Jimmy Garoppolo needs to play, provide answers for 49ers

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo had to endure a lot of criticism this past offseason following the loss in the Super Bowl. The national media questioned whether or not he was the answer at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. There was a lot of Brady-to-the-49ers talk leading to free agency. Others wondered if Aaron Rodgers might be an option down the road. Garoppolo is attempting to return from an ankle injury suffered during Week 2 against the New York Jets. He got back on the practice field today, albeit as a limited participant. While Garoppolo may not allow the outside noise to affect him, he likely hears at least some of it. Peter King is among those who believe this season is essential for the quarterback to prove his worth to Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers. The NBC
