The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 3 matchup at home against the New York Giants. These players will not suit up for the game.

Inactives:


On Wednesday, the 49ers listed two players, Aiyuk and Thomas, as "questionable." Neither is active. Aiyuk suffered a shoulder injury against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, while Thomas has been working through a knee injury.

On Wednesday, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reported that Thomas was expected to play against the Giants. That plan either changed or Anderson was incorrect. Hours before kickoff, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Aiyuk, who the 49ers expected to be a game-time decision, would not suit up.

"So Brandon's working really hard. He's a warrior," general manager John Lynch said Wednesday morning. "You can see it in his play. He's having fun because I think everything's starting to click for him. So I know he's a guy who doesn't want to miss [a game]."

The 49ers announced several roster moves just hours before kickoff. The team promoted cornerback Tre Swilling from the practice squad to the active roster, released recently-signed cornerback Anthony Brown, and temporarily elevated wide receiver Chris Conley and cornerback Shemar Jean-Charles from the practice squad.

Despite reportedly exploring options for another starting-caliber cornerback before the October trade deadline, the team ultimately stuck with Charvarius Ward and Ambry Thomas on the outside. Thomas playing outside has allowed Deommodore Lenoir to move to the slot corner spot. Defensive coordinator Steve Wilks seems to have found a recipe for success. Thomas has been impressive in recent weeks, earning his highest-ever overall Pro Football Focus grade (90.2) on Thanksgiving night against the Seattle Seahawks. We'll have to wait until Monday morning to learn how his performance against the Eagles compares, but it's evident that Thomas is

Early on, it seemed like it could be a hard-fought battle. However, the 49ers eventually broke things open, securing a dominating 42-19 victory despite the very vocal hometown fanbase. "I really wasn't even listening to them, to be honest," Samuel admitted after the game. "I was just so locked in and ignoring all the noise."

Where does the 2023 San Francisco 49ers offense rank among the franchise's greatest?
