49ers-Packers: Emmanuel Moseley active and slated to start; Elijah Mitchell, 3 others inactive

Sep 26, 2021 at 3:54 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 3 matchup at home against the Green Bay Packers. These players will not suit up for Sunday's game.


Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is active for the first time this season. He didn't play in Week 1 or 2 due to a knee injury and was listed as "questionable" for tonight's game. NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Moseley is slated to start. Rookie Deommodore Lenoir started in Moseley's place during the first two games.

Josh Norman will reportedly be the cornerback opposite Moseley as the 49ers defense attempts to stop quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Running back Elijah Mitchell, who was listed as "doubtful" for tonight's game due to a shoulder injury, is among the four inactive players. That likely means the first start for rookie running back Trey Sermon.

The 49ers made three roster moves on Saturday. One was activating running back Kerryon Johnson from the practice squad to the active roster. The others were placing defensive tackle Kevin Givens and running back JaMycal Hasty on injured reserve. Both suffered ankle injuries during Week 2's victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Packers lead the all-time series against the 49ers with a 37-32-1 record. However, San Francisco is 20-13-1 all-time against Green Bay at home.

Elijah Mitchell missed last weekend's game against the Green Bay Packers due to a shoulder injury sustained during Week 2. The hope was that the rookie running back would only have to miss the one game, but he is listed as "questionable" for Sunday's NFC West clash with the Seattle Seahawks. Mitchell has been limited in practice all week while wearing a blue no-contact jersey. Right now, it seems to be more of a question of how much the running back can endure. "Yeah, it's just a pain thing," head coach Kyle Shanahan explained. "I can tell you guys right now, I don't question his pain tolerance. The fact that it's taking a while means there's a lot of pain in there. If he can go and take it, that will be pretty impressive. "Each day helps a little

It sounds like we can expect the San Francisco 49ers star tight end to be out there for the team's first divisional matchup of the season. Despite being listed as "questionable" for the game, per multiple reports, Kittle is expected to be on the field at Levi's Stadium this afternoon when the Niners host the Seattle Seahawks. "While officially a game-time decision, SF has optimism that Kittle will be correct," notes Ian Rapoport of NFL
