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.

Trey Lance was 17-0 as a starter at North Dakota State. Before him, Easton Stick was 49-3 as a starter. Before either of them, Carson Wentz impressed pro scouts during his 20-3 collegiate run. Five years after Wentz's first NFL start, Lance is getting his chance. A calf injury has sidelined Jimmy Garoppolo, so the No. 3 overall pick will start Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. One former Bison quarterback is excited for the other. "I definitely did get to know Trey a little bit over the last couple of years, and even going into the pre-draft process," Wentz told Rich Eisen today. "Great kid. Great kid.

Trey Lance's first NFL start was far from perfect, but it was good enough to leave a positive impression on those who were playing with and against him on the field. Lance finished with 192 yards on 15-of-29 passing with zero touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, while also leading both teams in rushing with 16 carries for 89 yards. Following the game, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters he felt Lance played well overall despite the first quarter interception that the Cardinals turned into their first touchdown. "I thought he did some really good things," Shanahan said. "Definitely wasn't perfect, which no one ever has been. That first pick I thought just sailed on him. He was going to the right spot but it
