The San Francisco 49ers will host the Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium on Sunday night, which will also serve as the team's Alumni Game. Of course, that means something very different this year amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Usually, 49ers alumni would be in attendance. This year, 95 alumni will "attend" as fan cutouts, arranged in the shape of "SF" in section 109. 49ers players selected defensive lineman Arik Armstead as this year's Perry/Yonamine Unity Award for his off-field community efforts and work with the Armstead Academic Project.

Tackles Trent Williams and Mike McGlinchey received a boost from strong run-blocking grades.

Defensive end Nick Bosa hit a setback in his development. The reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year suffered a torn ACL during Week 2 against the New York Jets. Who knows what kind of difference Bosa's presence might have made for the struggling San Francisco 49ers? They probably would have more than just two wins at this point. Bosa hasn't been the only injury, but his loss may have been the most impactful for the defense. The pass rush hasn't been as effective without the second-year defender. Also missing is veteran Dee Ford, who is out indefinitely with a back injury. Head coach Kyle Shanahan knows what a good pass rush can do for a defense, and the loss of Bosa has crippled the efforts to frustrate quarterbacks this season. The young pass
