The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 18 matchup at home against the Los Angeles Rams. These seven players will not suit up for the game.

Inactives:


Leading up to the game, the 49ers ruled out defensive tackle Arik Armstead, safety Ji'Ayir Brown, safety Tashaun Gipson, running back Christian McCaffrey, cornerback Ambry Thomas, and wide receiver Jauan Jennings.

While head coach Kyle Shanahan initially stated that quarterback Brock Purdy would not play against the Rams, the team officially ruled him out just hours before kickoff, making him ineligible to serve as the in-uniform emergency third quarterback.

Center Jon Feliciano (back), wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud (rib), and fullback Kyle Juszczyk (illness) were listed as "questionable." All three are active.

The 49ers also added offensive linemen Trent Williams and Jake Brendel to the injury report with an illness. Both are active.

On Saturday, San Francisco placed tight end Ross Dwelley (ankle) on the injured reserve list and activated wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud from the injured reserve list. Additionally, the team elevated safety Tayler Hawkins and running back Jeremy McNichols from the practice squad.

Why one analyst is worried for Brock Purdy if 49ers trade Brandon Aiyuk

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy achieved a remarkable feat in 2023, setting a single-season franchise record with 4,280 passing yards. This accomplishment is noteworthy, considering the illustrious quarterbacks who have graced the organization's history. A significant portion of those yards came from wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, who amassed a career-high and team-leading 1,342 receiving yards. Most of his 75 catches originated from passes thrown by Purdy. Amidst significant offseason chatter surrounding the 49ers' star receiver, including several unsubstantiated trade rumors, Aiyuk's future remains uncertain. Former NFL player James Jones, now an analyst, expressed concern for Purdy should Aiyuk's tenure in the Bay Area come to an end. "I

Taylor Swift, the Kansas City Chiefs, and a Super Bowl overtime matchup. If the NFL is scripted, the league came up with a good one this past season—unless you're a San Francisco 49ers fan. During his inaugural youth football camp at Levi's Stadium this past weekend, 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy faced a candid inquiry from one young participant: Is the NFL scripted?

5 reasons why 49ers QB Brock Purdy will be better in 2024

The San Francisco 49ers appear to have found their quarterback. It was a bumpy road on the journey to locate him, too. There was the up-and-down tenure of Jimmy Garoppolo, whose relationship with Head Coach Kyle Shanahan seemed dysfunctional, at times. Then there was the short-lived Trey Lance experiment. Garoppolo and Lance are no longer being with the team, and one major reason is the emergence of Brock Purdy as the team's QB. Purdy finished his second season with a trip to the Super Bowl, after having a Pro Bowl season in which he finished with 4,280 yards and 31 touchdowns. He also led the league in multiple statistics, including passer rating (113.0) and QBR (72.8). Additionally, Purdy finished fourth in NFL MVP voting. But a year ago, no one knew what to

Former NFL exec on 49ers' Brock Purdy: "I think he needs to find more fire"

Brock Purdy isn't one to seek the spotlight. He exudes politeness, respect, and an even-keeled demeanor when speaking to reporters during interviews. Nothing we've seen from the San Francisco 49ers quarterback's time off the field would indicate that it's a facade. However, on the field, Purdy can show some fire, particularly after a big play or in an effort to ensure his teammates are on the same page as him. While praising the third-year quarterback, one unnamed former NFL executive expressed a desire to see more of that fire from Purdy in the future, believing it is crucial to his development. "Brock Purdy is one of the most talented arms that I've seen," the former executive recently
