49ers line up for a moment of unity before kickoff, Cardinals stay in the locker room

Sep 13, 2020 at 1:12 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers elected to line up as a team along the end zone in a moment of silence against racism and systematic oppression before kickoff of Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium. They did so as "Lift Every Voice and Sing" played throughout the stadium.

The Cardinals, however, opted to remain in the locker room before the game.


The NFL this season has pushed to help spread awareness of social injustice. Among other initiatives, the 49ers feature the following phrases in each painted end zone boundary line: "End Racism" and "It Takes All of Us."

Players have the option to wear helmet decals with names/initials of victims of systemic racism or one of four phrases: "It Takes All of Us," "End Racism," "Stop Hate," or "Black Lives Matter." Coaches have the option to wear patches with the same.

49ers players had the option to wear custom-made Black Lives Matter shirts provided by Levi's during pregame, which many did.

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.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel got back on the field on Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. It was his first in-game action since Super Bowl LIV. Samuel suffered a Jones fracture in June and could not even practice with his teammates until last week. Samuel missed the final two practices this week, but not due to a setback with his foot. It was due to an illness. These days, there is a cause for concern whenever someone shows any illness symptoms, so Samuel had to stay away from the facilities. So far, one test has returned negative for COVID-19. Samuel needs to pass one more test before he's allowed to rejoin his teammates. "Deebo's good," head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Friday. "He was on Zoom in our meetings today. He

Running low on healthy cornerbacks, 49ers plan to make a move before facing Dolphins, says Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers are hurting at several positions. Injuries have struck the roster hard this season. The defensive backfield has not been immune that that. Three cornerbacks — Dontae Johnson, Emmanuel Moseley, and K'Waun Williams — have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Moseley remains in the concussion protocol for the second consecutive week. The defense will be without Williams for at least several weeks as he heads to short-term injured reserve with an ACL sprain. Johnson played through a groin injury for much of Sunday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles because the 49ers were running low on available players. Ahkello Witherspoon has been limited this week during practices as he attempts to return from a
