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 are preparing for their Week 7 contest against the New England Patriots on Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Starting safeties Jaquiski Tartt and Jimmie Ward have been ruled out for Sunday. Tartt is dealing with a groin injury and has not practiced at all this week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that Ward suffered a strained quad during Thursday's practice and didn't dismiss the possibility that the safety could miss multiple games. "It could (be a multi-week injury). They gave it, I think, a 1.5 grade," Shanahan said. "I don't think it would be real long, but we know for sure he's not going to make the trip with us, and we hope that'll help him get a chance to be ready for next
