2020 49ers 53-player roster breakdown at Saturday cut-down deadline

Sep 5, 2020 at 3:31 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have their 53-player roster after three days' worth of moves, which started on Thursday.

Below is a breakdown, position-by-position, of the players who remain. Of course, this could change based on any transactions that take place after 1 p.m. on Saturday.

NFL teams can put in a claim for any of the over 1,100 new free agents who were waived by their respective former teams until 9 a.m. PT on Sunday.

The 49ers will also begin putting together a 16-player practice squad at 10 a.m. on Sunday. For the 2020 season, each NFL practice squad can carry up to six players with an unlimited amount of NFL experience.

Linebacker Fred Warner begins the season on the reserve/COVID-19 list and does not count against the 53-man roster. The 49ers apparently left a spot open for him as the team currently has 52 players on the active roster.

49ers-Packers scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 22

By David Bonilla

While speaking with reporters after Sunday's playoff win, head coach Kyle Shanahan wasn't sure when his San Francisco 49ers would face the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round next weekend. He does now. The NFL announced that the Packers will host the 49ers at Lambeau Field on Saturday, January 22, at 5:15 p.m. PT (8:15 p.m. ET). The game will be televised on FOX. It's a rematch of the Week 3 contest between the two teams—a 30-28 Packers victory at Levi's Stadium. "I'm ready," defensive tackle D.J. Jones said after the 49ers' 23-17 win over the Cowboys. "Not right now, but we will be. We definitely will be. They're a great team, obviously, but



49ers-Packers: Jimmy Garoppolo, Fred Warner set to play on Saturday

As expected, it looks like both Jimmy Garoppolo and Fred Warner will be on the field for the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night at Lambeau Field. Neither was listed when the team released its game status report for injured players. Only three players—defensive end Nick Bosa (concussion), cornerback Ambry Thomas (knee), and defensive end Jordan Willis (ankle)—were listed as "questionable" for the game. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan sounded optimistic that Bosa and Thomas would be available against the Green Bay Packers. "We've got to put him on there because of the steps of the [concussion] protocol, but it's looking good," Shanahan said of Bosa. Garoppolo is still dealing with the torn ligament in his right thumb, an injury that



49ers' Kyle Shanahan shares George Kittle story while discussing player honesty regarding injuries

Kyle Shanahan has noticed many changes since transitioning from an offensive coordinator to the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. One that he maybe didn't expect to be so drastic is how honest his players are with him when it comes to injuries, even when he hopes for complete honesty. Shanahan is one of the team's top decision-makers. That means his players look to impress him with their toughness. In their minds, that means pushing through certain injuries to be available. Shanahan joined KNBR this week and was asked to estimate what percentage of his players are actually honest with him regarding the severity of their injuries. The answer was surprisingly low. As a head coach, Shanahan figures that only about five percent are completely honest. That number



49ers at Rams player grades: Jimmy Garoppolo shines in the clutch again

By Rohan Chakravarthi

What an exhilarating game. I'm still amazed at what was probably the game of the year. The 49ers defeated the Los Angeles Rams 27-24 after forcing a 3-and-out with under two minutes to play, scoring a touchdown to force overtime, kicking a field goal to take the lead in OT, and Ambry Thomas intercepting Matthew Stafford to end the game. This was the story of two halves, as the 49ers seemed outmatched early in this game, with the Rams scoring 17 early points and the 49ers struggling to generate offense en route to just three 1st half points. But, Jimmy Garoppolo and Kyle Shanahan came out for the second half with a mission, scoring two touchdowns to tie the game at 17, the second coming with a creative Deebo Samuel touchdown pass to Jauan Jennings.
