The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 7 matchup on the road against the Minnesota Vikings. These seven players will not suit up for the game.


On Saturday, the 49ers ruled out Samuel against the Vikings. He is also expected to miss the next game against the Cincinnati Bengals but could return against the Jacksonville Jaguars after the bye week.

The team listed one player, Williams, as doubtful. The Niners listed two players, linebacker Dre Greenlaw (hamstring) and running back Christian McCaffrey (oblique), as questionable. Greenlaw and McCaffrey are active.

Williams sustained an ankle injury early in the Week 6 game against the Cleveland Browns.

San Francisco promoted two players (standard elevations) before tonight's contest. They are wide receiver Chris Conley and cornerback Shemar Jean-Charles. It is the second call-up to the active roster for Conley and the third for Jean-Charles.

Conley's elevation makes sense, particularly with wide receiver Deebo Samuel expected to miss at least the next two games due to a hairline fracture in his shoulder. The 49ers are hopeful for Samuel's return when they face the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 12, following the bye week.

McCaffrey is active for tonight's matchup despite grappling with a "slight" oblique tear all week. He did not participate in Thursday or Friday practices but saw limited action on Saturday.

When asked about the significance of being on the field with his teammates for tonight's game, McCaffrey said, "That's a huge deal. Yeah, it's what you signed up to do, so if you can go, you've got to go."

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that McCaffrey "had like a team of people working on him all week long, like [physical] therapists, working on him around the clock."

The Vikings' inactive players are listed below.

49ers Notebook: Nick Bosa lobbies for 49ers to keep Chase Young; Kyle Juszczyk addresses his future; Has anyone on the team watched the Super Bowl yet?

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's
