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
  • DT Javon Kinlaw and S Jaquiski Tartt placed on 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.

The 49ers are just three days away from their preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers (8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT, Friday), a game that will give 49ers fans the chance to see a number of their team's players in on-field action for the first time. Two particular newcomers of interest to keep an eye on Friday night will be offensive lineman Spencer Burford and wide receiver/return specialist Ray-Ray McCloud. Burford is progressing towards starting as a rookie at right guard after being selected by the 49ers in Round 4 of the 2022 NFL Draft, while McCloud will be making his 49ers preseason debut after signing with the team as a free agent in the offseason. McCloud is expected to be the primary return specialist for the 49ers this season, but there's a chance he could also



49ers' DeMeco Ryans identifies training camp focus for Javon Kinlaw: 'Technique, technique, technique'

San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw is big, strong, and has all the tools to succeed in the NFL. His 2020 rookie campaign was underwhelming, racking up just 1.5 sacks to go along with 33 tackles, three for a loss, four quarterback hits, and one interception. Kinlaw's 2021 campaign was cut short by injury. The former No. 14 overall pick appeared in only four games before undergoing season-ending reconstructive surgery to repair his ACL. With Kinlaw making his way back to the football field, reporters were curious about the training camp focus for the 6-foot-5 defender. "Kinlaw, I tell him every day as I walk by him. I just say, 'Technique, technique, technique," defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans said on Wednesday. "That's the main thing. If he just



DeMeco Ryans on why Javon Kinlaw could be key to 49ers defense's success

Last week, San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans identified three things defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw needed to work on in preparation for his third NFL season: technique, technique, technique. Kinlaw is returning after undergoing season-ending reconstructive surgery to repair his ACL last year. To this point, the former No. 14 overall pick's contributions have been underwhelming. That could change in 2022, though. Kinlaw has put in the work during his recover, and as the 49ers ramp up his training camp workload, many feel that the defender could be on the cusp of becoming a dominant force for the defensive front. "I think Javon, he's
