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.

Some were positive, like adding a starting cornerback in Charvarius Ward. Some were negative, like not bringing back players D.J. Jones and Laken Tomlinson. But the team has added a large draft class, as well as a large group of undrafted free agents. The 49ers have also experienced changes to the coaching staff, front office, and scouting departments. It's been an offseason of transformation so far, and we're still almost three months away from training camp.
