Twenty-three players are participating, including the team's eight members of its 2021 draft class, the five signed undrafted free agents, a few members of the team with a year of experience, and several players trying out to make the roster.

By Marc Adams
Nov 22

It's an exciting time to be a fan of the San Francisco 49ers. And if you asked fans what they're most thankful for, when it comes to the team, you'd get a variety of answers, mostly players and coaches. But one thing all fans can be thankful for is that Jed York has allowed Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch to do what they want. What those two have done has the 49ers far removed from the bleak days in Santa Clara before they arrived. So there's a lot to be thankful for if you're a fan of the 49ers. Speaking of those fans, we opened up the 49ers Webzone Mailbag to grab your questions. So let's jump in and see what questions we can answer: Which positional battle on Thursday are you more concerned about: 49ers WRs vs Seattle DBs, or 49ers DBs vs Seattle WRs? - Scott

How has 49ers rookie Ji'Ayir Brown progressed?

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers rookie safety Ji'Ayir Brown has seen limited action on defense this season, with only 30 defensive snaps through nine games. However, he has been actively contributing on special teams, where he has amassed 137 snaps. That's because the 49ers have a lot of confidence in their starting safety duo of Talanoa Hufanga and Tashaun Gipson. Brown will likely eventually replace Gipson, who is in his 12th NFL season and flirted with retiring this past offseason before signing a one-year deal to return to the 49ers.

49ers express confidence in rookie Ji'Ayir Brown after standout performance

The San Francisco 49ers have expressed considerable confidence in rookie safety Ji'Ayir Brown, whose opportunity to showcase his NFL readiness seems to have arrived. Despite being a third-round draft pick in April, Brown has seen limited action, with just 30 defensive snaps under his belt before the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Most of his playing time has come on special teams. That changed when Brown stepped in for an injured Talanoa Hufanga in the third quarter. The 49ers fear the worst for their All-Pro safety, believing Hufanga suffered an ACL injury. They will learn more on Monday. It sounds like Brown will pair up with Tashaun Gipson for the remainder of the season. "My heart goes out to Huf," linebacker Fred Warner said after the game.
