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.

49ers' Emmanuel Moseley working with Charvarius Ward to become a better press corner

Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is entering his fifth NFL season. That's the same experience—as far as years—as his new teammate, Charvarius Ward. In March, the San Francisco 49ers signed the 26-year-old Ward to a three-year, $40.5 million contract, bolstering the defensive back room. While the two cornerbacks entered the league at the same time, Ward has over 1,000 more career snaps on defense (2,719 to 1,676). So Moseley knows there is a lot he can learn from Ward. "He's a great press corner, so I'm learning from him," Moseley told reporters on Wednesday. "Just the attitude that he brings every day to the meetings, talking to the younger guys, and even coaching me up. I like Charvarius, and I'm ready to work with him." Moseley has been

49ers' Emmanuel Moseley seeks to help Trey Lance, stop Brandon Aiyuk

Emmanuel Moseley is always open to helping his San Francisco 49ers teammates. One, however, doesn't seem to need any help. In fact, the fifth-year cornerback is looking to stop one teammate who has been a headache thus far for the defense. Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk is having an excellent training camp, putting in day after day of impressive effort. The 49ers defensive backs have been praising Aiyuk, expecting the third-year wideout to have a breakout season. "Right now, he's having an outstanding camp," safety Jimmie Ward said this week. "I feel like he's having the best camp out of everybody on the team, offense and defense." Ward noted maybe only

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell feeling good physically as season two approaches

After a rookie season full of bumps and bruises and a procedure on his knee in the spring, 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell seems to be in a good place as training camp proceeds. Mitchell set a franchise rushing record for a rookie player in 2021 (963 yards), even though injuries limited him to 11 games. In April, Mitchell had a clean-up procedure on his knee, but he's been participating in drills at training camp and has been moving in the right direction as he gets back to full health. "He has looked good," 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Saturday,

49ers' Kyle Shanahan looking to ramp up practice workload for healthier Elijah Mitchell

Elijah Mitchell's 963 rushing yards last season set a San Francisco 49ers franchise record for the most by a rookie. But, how he accomplished the feat is even more impressive. Mitchell was never completely healthy for most of the season, dealing with shoulder, rib, finger, and knee injuries. In April, Mitchell underwent a clean-up procedure on his knee. Head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't about to throw a full workload on the second-year running back. He knows how important Mitchell is to the success of the upcoming season. "Elijah's just getting back healthy," Shanahan told reporters before Monday's practice. "We didn't get him in OTAs. He did a lot of good things last year, but he was also banged up throughout the year. So Elijah is just trying to get back to [100
