49ers place Tom Compton on IR, promote Alex Barrett, announce other moves

Dec 12, 2020 at 1:31 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have placed guard Tom Compton on injured reserve. He suffered a concussion leading to the team's Week 12 contest against the Los Angeles Rams and has been in the protocol since.

The team announced that defensive lineman Alex Barrett has been promoted from the practice squad and signed to the active roster. The move comes after defensive tackle D.J. Jones was listed as "doubtful" to play on Sunday against Washington due to an ankle injury and defensive tackle Kevin Givens has been ruled "out."

Givens was excused this week for his daughter's birth, and will not be able to clear COVID-19 protocols in time for the game.

The 49ers also announced the following roster moves.

  • Cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun has been promoted to the active roster from the practice squad.
  • Defensive lineman Darrion Daniels and offensive lineman Dakoda Shepley have been activated/flexed from the practice squad for Sunday's game.
  • Givens was granted a roster exemption.

The emergence of Tom Compton fuels 49ers' dominant run game

By Alan Gaines
Jan 18

The forecast for Saturday's NFC Divisional Round playoff game in Green Bay is slated to be zero degrees at kickoff. The inclement weather is likely to take the "air out of the ball," thus making the game a battle of winning at the line of scrimmage. This type of game is one that the 49ers welcome because they have been dominant on both the defensive and offensive lines. The unsung hero of the 49ers' offensive line and powerful run game is tackle Tom Compton. His emergence has coincided with the 49ers re-establishing their offensive identity. To put Tom Compton's improvement in proper context, we must look back at his tenure with the 49ers. Compton was signed during the 2020 offseason and struggled during games. He notched only three starts and appeared in seven games during



49ers-Packers: Nick Bosa clears concussion protocol, set to play; other roster moves

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that defensive end Nick Bosa has cleared the concussion protocol. During Sunday's playoff win over the Dallas Cowboys, the pass rusher suffered the head injury. He did not practice with his teammates in Santa Clara on Tuesday, was limited on Wednesday, and was a full participant on Thursday. Bosa recorded 15.5 sacks, 52 tackles, 21 tackles for a loss, 32 quarterback hits, and four forced fumbles during the regular season. He had three tackles, a quarterback hit, and half a sack during his 23 snaps against Dallas before exiting the game. Bosa was among three players listed as "questionable" for Saturday's game. The others are cornerback Ambry Thomas (knee) and defensive lineman Jordan Willis (ankle). "We've got



49ers Notebook: Could 49ers mark end of the road for Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady? Arik Armstead the baller; Deebo's big run; Outcome never in doubt?

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to
