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

  • LB Azeez Al-Shaair (concussion) and DL Dee Ford (concussion) downgraded and ruled out for Sunday
  • DE Jordan Willis roster exemption lifted
  • TE Jordan Matthews and S Kai Nacua activated from the practice squad

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.

Javon Hargrave: 49ers-Eagles would have been a different game with a healthy Brock Purdy

Everything changed in the NFC Championship Game when quarterback Brock Purdy exited early with an injury. He eventually returned because his backup, Josh Johnson, exited with a concussion. Purdy could not throw, though. He suffered a tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow, leaving the San Francisco 49ers to become one-dimensional, abandoning the pass and depending solely on the run game. For fans, it was a difficult game to watch. Everyone anticipated a more evenly matched battle between the two best teams in the NFC. Instead, they got an Eagles powerhouse defense going against a limping 49ers offense. "We kind of knew it was going to be different when all you can do is run the ball," former Eagles defensive tackle Javon Hargrave said

Javon Hargrave was nervous heading into free agency. He knew he would get paid but was concerned that he might have to sacrifice success in the process.

After a very productive season with the Philadelphia Eagles, defensive tackle Javon Hargrave earned a big payday with the San Francisco 49ers, signing a four-year deal worth up to $84 million. That is life-changing money for the 30-year-old. Hargrave joined KNBR on Friday to discuss the move from Philly to the Bay Area. "I was talking to them before I even signed, and one thing I even told him, even the players that had [contacted] me was just it ain't really too much convincing you all can do," Hargrave said. "You ain't really got to convince me. I guess they thought I was playing at the time, but it ain't really hard to convince when you go into a team that's built on winning, and one, they trying to come pay me big money."
