Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee is reporting that, from the looks of pregame warmups, as though second-year player Arik Armstead and rookie DeForest Buckner will start on the ends of the San Francisco 49ers' defensive line today against the Buffalo Bills. Quinton Dial looks like he will start at nose tackle in place of Mike Purcell.

Our own Al Sacco reports that rookie Joshua Garnett looks as though he will make his first career start – playing at right tackle. This week, both head coach Chip Kelly and offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins had said that, despite an earlier report, no decision had been made on a starter at right guard. Andrew Tiller and Garnett were competing for the spot this week.

Sunday night will be a reunion for many San Francisco 49ers players. All-Pro defensive tackle DeForest Buckner will return to Levi's Stadium for the first time since being traded to the Indianapolis Colts in 2020. "He was the heart and soul when he was here, man," safety Jimmie Ward said of Buckner after today's practice. "I wasn't happy about [the trade], but I understand the business side. I'm pretty sure you all knew something was going to happen, just like I did. I just didn't know what was going to happen. "When that happened, like I said, it was bittersweet. We ended up getting [Javon] Kinlaw, and we ended up getting Brandon Aiyuk. But we lost a leader, especially a leader on the defense. Really, a leader on this team, in this building. But he's

The San Francisco 49ers hoped quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be able to take part in today's practice and test whether his right leg was strong enough to play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Garoppolo didn't, and he has now missed an entire week's worth of practice. After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers are ruling Garoppolo "out" for the Week 5 matchup and that rookie Trey Lance would start in the veteran's place.

"The more reps you get, the better you're going to get," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR. "He does things exceptionally well. I think he's taken to our offense well.
