The San Francisco 49ers have made the following roster moves ahead of Sunday's Week 8 road game against the Chicago Bears.

  • DT Kevin Givens activated from the injured reserve list

The 49ers opened the practice window for Givens this week. Kinlaw had season-ending knee surgery this week.

"[Givens] had a good week, especially with what's going on with our D-line right now," head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Friday.

Tartt suffered a bone bruise in knee during Week 7's loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

San Francisco enters Sunday's game with a 2-4 record while Chicago is 3-4. Kickoff between the two teams is scheduled for noon CT (10 a.m. PT) from Soldier Field. The 49ers are currently favored by four points.
