49ers inactives for Super Bowl LIV: Dante Pettis out, Jeff Wilson in

Feb 2, 2020 at 2:14 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are just under 90 minutes away from kicking off against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV, and there are some interesting developments in head coach Kyle Shanahan's list of inactives for the game.

Wide receiver Dante Pettis, who hasn't been much of a factor for San Francisco's offense this season, is inactive for the big game. Meanwhile, second-year running back Jeff Wilson Jr. is active for the contest despite appearing in only 10 regular-season games and the team boasting three other starting-caliber running backs, Tevin Coleman, Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert.

But Coleman suffered a separated shoulder during the 49ers' NFC Championship game over the Green Bay Packers two weeks ago. While the Niners medical staff cleared Coleman to play in Super Bowl LIV, it's possible Shanahan wanted to have a bit more depth at the position.

The 49ers inactives for the Super Bowl are as follows:


The Niners and Chiefs kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET from Hard Rock Stadium.

The San Francisco 49ers held a light practice on Wednesday. According to tight end George Kittle, you probably couldn't tell by how he and his teammates were flying around.

Jan 27

The San Francisco 49ers have officially ruled out quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this weekend's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. That wasn't unexpected. The chances of the former starter suiting up for Sunday's playoff bout, backing up rookie Brock Purdy, were slim. "Yeah, it's just been an outside chance the whole time, and that was still an outside chance," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Thursday, before that outside chance turned into no chance. The 49ers never placed Garoppolo on injured reserve, leaving the door open for a playoff return. However, we are now down to just one more game as a possibility—Super
