49ers announce roster moves ahead of Super Bowl LVIII

The San Francisco 49ers have announced the following roster moves ahead of their matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII.

  • Promoted DL Alex Barrett and DL T.Y. McGill from the team's practice squad to the active roster (standard elevations).
  • Downgraded DL Kalia Davis' game status from questionable to out.

Barrett has not appeared in a game with the 49ers since the 2020 season. That season, Barrett played in seven games. In that time, he had five tackles and two quarterback hits. He is unlikely to play on Sunday.

McGill has played in just two games with the 49ers this season, recording a forced fumble, a QB hit, and two tackles. He has a better chance to be active and play in the Super Bowl than Barrett, but it's more likely that neither plays. The 49ers sometimes promoted practice squad players in order to get them up with the team, more as a reward for the player's service on the practice squad, even if the player won't actually suit up.

Davis has dealt with injuries in his first two seasons with the team. In 2023, Davis appeared in three games with the 49ers, and recorded a sack, a QB hit, and one tackle for loss. The 49ers opened Davis' practice window recently, after placing him on Injured Reserve (IR) on January 24. Davis will remain on IR and will not play in the Super Bowl. The team hopes to have Davis healthy for offseason practices this spring.

Additionally, Matt Barrows reported that DT Arik Armstead (knee, foot), LB Oren Burks (shoulder), TE George Kittle (toe), and CB Ambry Thomas (ankle) practiced in full on Friday. None is listed on the injury report for Sunday. So the 49ers are fully healthy going into Super Bowl LVIII.

John Lynch provides updates on Jauan Jennings, 49ers' front office moves

By David Bonilla
Feb 27

Jauan Jennings is poised to become a restricted free agent, offering the San Francisco 49ers various avenues to retain the talented wide receiver. One such option involves signing Jennings to a long-term contract, a possibility that general manager John Lynch openly acknowledged as a possibility while speaking to reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. If that doesn't happen, the 49ers can tender Jennings, giving the team the right to match any more lucrative offers from other teams. Alternatively, they could attach the tendered offer to a draft pick, a costlier approach when it comes to guaranteed salary, but one that would force interested teams to surrender compensation if the 49ers opt not to match competing offers. All of those options

49ers DC candidate is brutally honest about team's Super Bowl defeat, Wilks firing

Kansas City Chiefs defensive backs coach Dave Merritt clearly has no qualms about speaking his mind. He is a candidate to replace former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who was fired following the team's Super Bowl defeat against the Chiefs. Wilks spent just one season with the 49ers. Merritt recently participated in a radio interview on "The Sports Show" and attributed at least part of the blame for San Francisco's crushing defeat to head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. "Their offense went 3-for-12 on third down," Merritt said, per Niners Wire. "Our offense went 9-for-19, but if your offense

Cutting Through the Noise After the 49ers' Super Bowl Loss

By John Porter
Feb 20

Since the last pass of Super Bowl LVIII (I couldn't even tell you what happened in the aftermath, nor who caught the pass, I turned off as soon as the ball hit his hands), I've surprised myself. One would anticipate that I may have gone through the seven stages usually associated with grief, particularly since it was the third heart-shattering Super Bowl loss of my fandom (I'm a UK Niner who has, in some way, managed to watch, at times excruciatingly, every down of every season since 2005). Alas, no. I'm not even stuck in denial. It happened, we lost, but for once, I accepted it. I had my moments of despair, but overall, I was quite looking forward to a long break from the game, a chance to breathe, reset, and hopefully come back next year. Then, the crushing avalanche of

Why Chiefs' Steve Spagnuolo reached out to 49ers' Brock Purdy after the Super Bowl

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy has earned a fan in Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. Following the Chiefs' victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl 58, Spagnuolo made sure to extend his regards to Purdy. "I just texted Brock the other day," Spagnuolo disclosed in a recent conversation with Peter Schrager on "The Season" podcast. "I tried to track down his cell number. I just wanted to tell him how much respect I have for him [and] what a terrific game he played. He's such a quality guy, strong Christian man, and I respect all of that, and I'm happy for all the success." Naturally, while Spagnuolo is content that Purdy didn't overly excel in the Super Bowl, he expressed admiration for the young quarterback, saying, "I think Brock
