Chip Kelly says no lineup changes planned following bye

Nov 2, 2016 at 10:55 AM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly met with the media today and stated that there were no plans to make any lineup changes following the team's sixth-straight loss and heading into Sunday's home game against the New Orleans Saints.

"Aside from the move we made at quarterback two weeks ago, like I said earlier, everybody has played," Kelly said. "It's not like we haven't played somebody. I mean, everybody that is eligible in the 46 is contributed in some shape or fashion. We rotate our defensive line. Our linebackers are playing. We rotate the outside linebackers. Our secondary is depending on our packages. Sometimes we get four or five and even six [defensive backs] in at the same time. All of our receivers play. Our running backs have rotated.

"You've seen all of those guys so it's not, 'Hey, we need to insert this guy in the lineup because I don't think we've given him an opportunity.' I think everybody's had an opportunity to play at this point in time."



Kelly also stated that RB Carlos Hyde will practice again in a blue non-contact jersey, but it is up to the medical staff whether or not he is cleared to play on Sunday. It doesn't matter how he looks in practice to the coaching staff. OLB Aaron Lynch will not practice and will miss his second straight practice this week.

Hyde's shoulder injury occurred during the third quarter of the 49ers' October 16 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Mike Davis replaced Hyde while the 49ers' starting running back was on the sideline. The 49ers promoted RB DuJuan Harris from the practice squad for their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He rushed for 39 yards on 11 carries in that game.

Lynch suffered a left ankle injury against the Buccaneers. Lynch left the Buccaneers game after his legs were buried by players under a pileup during a tackle.

Levin T. Black is an unsung podcast hero. Carefully striking a balance between obsessed analytics nerd and the wise elder statesman at the bar. His insights, humor, and wit are one-third of the very best 49ers podcast out there — the 49ers Webzone "No Huddle Podcast" (available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google PlayMusic). I don't say this because I write for the Webzone myself. Long before I volunteered to write here, I would search for a good 49ers podcasts to listen to. It would take quite some time before I found the No Huddle Podcast. At that time, Levin T. Black was yet to join the crew, but it didn't take long to get hooked by host Zain Naqvi's commentary on the best franchise in sports. When Levin T. Black joined the

The next inductee into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame sat down with Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area for the latest episode of the 49ers Insider Podcast. Young wore No. 97 during his time with San Francisco, the only team he played for during his 14-year career. Another player wears that number now — defensive end Nick Bosa. What does Young, who spent some time coaching through the college and pro ranks after his NFL career, think about the talented second-year player? "Nick does a good job just in terms of one, being a very knowledgable player," Young told Maiocco. "He sees the game. You can tell he's been surrounded by good coaching. And then just his family history. His dad played, his brother played, and so

The Aaron Rodgers to San Francisco 49ers talk is starting early. Maybe nearly a year early. First, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk explored the idea of the future Hall of Famer joining his hometown team and the organization that passed him up in 2005 for Alex Smith. Now, ESPN's First Take is joining the discussion. Rodgers' days in Green Bay may be numbered after the team selected Jordan Love in the first round of April's draft. After enduring over a month of discussion earlier this offseason surrounding Tom Brady potentially replacing Jimmy Garoppolo in San Francisco, it seems like fans might have to put up with talk about the next possible Garoppolo replacement. That's what analyst Domonique Foxworth, along with ESPN personality Stephen
