49ers release first regular season depth chart of 2016

Sep 6, 2016 at 3:41 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers released their first depth chart of the 2016 regular season and immediately everyone started breaking it down.

There are some new numbers for 49ers newcomers. WR Rod Streater will wear No. 81 while DT Taylor Hart will wear No. 96. Quarterback Christian Ponder will change numbers from No. 5 to No. 15, mostly due to the fact that punter Bradley Pinion wears the old number.

Listed on the depth chart are three first-team wide receivers. They are Torrey Smith, Quinton Patton, and Jeremy Kerley. Kerley is also listed as a punt returner on special teams.

Arik Armstead, Mike Purcell, and Quinton Dial are listed with the first-team defensive line. Rookie DE DeForest Buckner is listed as a backup.

The first-team offensive line has the following from left to right: Joe Staley, Zane Beadles, Daniel Kilgore, Anthony Davis, and Trent Brown. Rookie OG Joshua Garnett is listed as a backup.

You can view the depth chart below.


Of course, it is important to not read too much into this depth chart. Playing time during Monday's home opener against the Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium may look very different.

Confident Brock Purdy shines in first extended action at QB for 49ers

By Kirk Larrabee

The San Francisco 49ers could have gone in the wrong direction on Sunday after losing starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for the remainder of the season due to a foot injury, but thanks to a clutch performance by rookie Brock Purdy, their offense didn't miss a beat in a 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins. The situation was a challenging one for Purdy, who before Sunday had just one NFL regular season appearance under his belt (4-of-9, 66 yards, one interception in a late game role during an October 23 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs) after the 49ers made him the final selection in the 2022 NFL Draft. Garoppolo sustained the injury during a sack by Dolphins linebackers Jerome Baker and Jaelan Phillips on the final offensive play of the 49ers' opening drive of the game, which

The San Francisco 49ers are in the home stretch, with only six games remaining. After Sunday's victory over the New Orleans Saints, you'd think 49ers fans have nothing to worry about. But a handful of injuries, and some tough upcoming opponents, have given fans plenty of reasons to fret. We opened up our 49ers mailbag to see what was on the troubled minds of fans. Let's take a peek inside. What do you think is holding back these 49ers on offense? All The tools are there but lack the explosion on plays. - Will D. The 49ers have been inconsistent on offense.

The San Francisco 49ers placed Elijah Mitchell on injured reserve for the second time this season after the running back suffered an MCL sprain in his left knee last weekend against the New Orleans Saints. On Friday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers placing Mitchell on injured reserve was not a certainty. That's because the team has two remaining opportunities to bring players back from injured reserve, having already used six. They will presumably use one more for defensive Javon Kinlaw, who Shanahan said may return soon. "You're allowed eight, so that's the biggest thing," Shanahan explained. "I think we need to use them by [the start of the

The San Francisco 49ers knocked off the visiting Miami Dolphins 33-17 on Sunday, doing so with rookie quarterback Brock Purdy at the helm of the offense, not Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo suffered a left foot injury on the team's first offensive drive and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after the game, providing an update on his injured starting quarterback. Garoppolo suffered a broken foot and will undergo season-ending surgery. "Just hearing it, it was pretty crushing," Shanahan said. "We know what Jimmy's been through, how hard he's worked at this. I got the news in the second quarter, so it was a little different for me ... it was such a special win. But definitely mixed emotions hearing about
