Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Aiyuk active vs. Jets; George Kittle, Dee Ford among 49ers’ inactives

Sep 20, 2020 at 8:35 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 2 matchup on the road against the New York Jets. These players will not suit up for Sunday's game.

NFL teams can each have 48 players active on game days. This season, each can promote one or two players from the practice squad up to 90 minutes before kickoff, potentially increasing the active roster up to 55 players. After the game, any elevated player will revert back to the practice squad without having to go through waivers. Teams can do this twice with each player before subjecting him to waivers first.

Among the inactives are tight end George Kittle and pass rusher Dee Ford, who were both ruled out for the game. Kittle is dealing with an MCL sprain and bone bruise, according to multiple reports, while Ford has a neck injury.

As expected, wide receivers Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Aiyuk are both active and set to make their 49ers debuts. It will double as the NFL debut for the team's first-round pick, Aiyuk. He has been dealing with a hamstring injury since training camp and missed Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals but practiced all week. Sanu was signed this past week and first practiced with his teammates on Friday.

Below are the players who will be inactive for the 49ers:
