Ahkello Witherspoon, Tom Compton among 49ers’ Week 3 inactives vs. Giants

Sep 27, 2020 at 8:37 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 3 matchup on the road against the New York Giants. 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 having to sign them to the active roster, as was the case with center Hroniss Grasu this week.

The 49ers on Saturday promoted running back JaMycal Hasty and linebacker Joe Walker from the practice squad.

Among those who are inactive today are several players who are injured. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is dealing with a high-ankle sprain suffered a week ago. Nick Mullens will start in his place.

Tight end George Kittle is attempting to return from an MCL sprain and bone bruise sustained during Week 1. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw suffered a thigh contusion. Defensive end Dee Ford is dealing with a back injury, and it is unknown when he might return.

Each of those players was already ruled out on Friday.

Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon was listed as "questionable" due to a hamstring injury. He, along with guard Tom Compton, is inactive. Jason Verrett will likely start in Witherspoon's place.

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

  • OG Tom Compton
  • DE Dee Ford
  • QB Jimmy Garoppolo
  • OLB Dre Greenlaw
  • TE George Kittle
  • RB Raheem Mostert
  • CB Ahkello Witherspoon

49ers-Dolphins: Kyle Shanahan explains why it took so long to replace Brian Allen with Ahkello Witherspoon

Were you wondering what took so long for San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan to pull Brian Allen after it was clear the Miami Dolphins were targeting and embarrassing the cornerback early? Shanahan explained his reasoning after the 43-17 defeat that left the 49ers still winless at home. "Just because of how down we were (with the cornerback numbers) going into the game," Shanahan told reporters. "We got him off of practice squad this week with the injuries that we had. (Ken) Webster was his backup." Ahkello Witherspoon eventually replaced Allen, but much of the damage had already been done. "Ahkello, he tried to go this week," Shanahan continued, "but he was too tight to go throughout practice this week. Because of our low

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday, the day after the team's 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. Opening comments: "All right guys, injuries. [LB] Kwon Alexander, didn't have it last night, but he has a possible high ankle sprain. We don't know the severity of it yet. We'll find out more on that by Wednesday. [DL] D.J. Jones, eye. I expect him back at practice Wednesday. Go ahead." This question comes in light of a couple of the decisions as far as who to start and who not to start yesterday. I realize players often side or err on the side of wanting to play, but
