The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 10 contest against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Defensive linemen Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) and Samson Ebukam (quadricep, Achilles) were noticeably absent from Friday's practice. Neither practiced this week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan ruled out Armstead for Sunday's game. However, the 49ers listed Ebukam as "doubtful."

Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw (knee) isn't eligible to return to practice until after the Chargers game. That means the 49ers could be without three of their four starting defensive linemen on Sunday.

Obviously, cornerback Jason Verrett has been ruled out after suffering a season-ending Achilles injury on Wednesday. He is headed to the injured reserve list.

Four players who missed Week 8's matchup against the Los Angeles Rams didn't appear on the pre-game injury list. They are wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring), fullback Kyle Juszczyk (finger), linebacker Dre Greenlaw (calf), and wide receiver Jauan Jennings (hamstring). All four are good to go.

Shanahan said the 49ers expect to activate multiple players from the injured reserve list ahead of Sunday's game. Running back Elijah Mitchell (knee), linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair (knee), offensive lineman Colton McKivitz (knee), and defensive end Jordan Willis (knee) all made it through a week of practice.

Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert will be without wide receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams.

Below are the official injury reports for the 49ers and Chargers, provided by the 49ers Communications staff. Also included are Friday's practice participation reports.

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond.

The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him.

Report suggests 2024 salary cap could near $250 million

By David Bonilla
Feb 19

Speculation surrounding the 2024 salary cap indicates that it might be in the area of $242 million. That's the number that salary-cap site has been working with, which, according to their estimations, puts the San Francisco 49ers about $12.38 over the projected cap. The team could obviously use more wiggle room to sign wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk to a long-term deal. San Francisco may need to either restructure the contracts of some high-priced stars or make some difficult roster decisions to make that happen. RELATED: Graziano: Salary cap situation may
