49ers-Cowboys: Jason Verrett, Ezekiel Elliott among inactives

Dec 20, 2020 at 8:42 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 15 matchup on the road against the Dallas Cowboys. These players will not suit up for Sunday's game.


Cornerback Jason Verrett's name is a surprise. He was not listed as injured on any practice participation reports this week. The 49ers announced that Verrett is inactive due to an illness.

Cornerbacks K'Waun Williams (ankle) and Emmanuel Moseley (hamstring) appear set to play. Both were listed as "questionable" on Friday.

Linebacker Fred Warner (stinger) was also listed as "questionable," but is active against the Cowboys.

The 49ers made several roster moves on Saturday. While they activated Mark Nzeocha from the injured reserve list, he won't be available against his former team. The linebacker is among the inactives.

San Francisco also added tight end Charlie Woerner to the reserve/COVID-19 list, which means there are now three players on the list. The team activated/flexed tight end Daniel Helm and offensive linemen Dakoda Shepley and Isaiah Williams from the practice squad as COVID-19 replacements.

On the Cowboys side, the biggest inactive is running back Ezekiel Elliott, who has been battling a calf injury. He did not practice this week and is inactive.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan provides an update on Jason Verrett's timeline

Jason Verrett is once again working his way back from a devastating injury. The veteran cornerback showed his worth in 2020, proving to be one of the defense's best players and entered his 2021 campaign as one of the 49ers' starting cornerbacks, but suffered a season-ending ACL injury during Week 1. Verrett's career has been injury-plagued. While he has played in the league for eight years, the cornerback has avoided landing on injured reserve just twice (2015, 2020). Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Saturday's practice and was asked about Verrett's timeline. The cornerback started training camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list. "We would love to get him into camp," Shanahan said. "We'd love to get him ready for Week 1. I

Following the 49ers' practice session on Thursday, quarterback Trey Lance spoke publicly for the first time since June while defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans chatted with reporters about what he's seen so far from his side of the ball -- and from the quarterback his defense has been facing. Lance spoke on a number of topics, including what he thought of his first two days of training camp as the team's starter. Ryans offered his views of Lance, as well as what he's seen from some of the key players in the secondary and on the defensive line. Plus, there was an interesting Twitter quote Thursday from former 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who expects to see big things from his former defensive teammates this season. Here's a run-down of all of
