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.

George Kittle responds to doubters, says 49ers are ready to 'whoop up on some people'

You've probably seen more than enough predictions leading up to the 2020 season. Some are predicting the Seattle Seahawks to win the NFC West over the San Francisco 49ers. Others are doubting whether or not the Niners will even make the playoffs this season. San Francisco has its share of doubters. It's not necessarily because anyone believes the 49ers aren't a good team. They are, after all, coming off a Super Bowl appearance and didn't experience a lot of the same turnover that many past Super Bowl teams have. It's just that the road back to the big game is

Kyle Shanahan says Jimmy Garoppolo, offense have to play better after 49ers' loss to Cardinals

There's plenty of blame to go around for the 49ers' 24-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but one place the team will need to find some answers in a hurry is on offense, particularly in the passing game. On the surface, the numbers the 49ers put up through the air on Sunday don't look too bad, with starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo finishing with 259 yards, two touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a 103.0 rating on 19 of 33 passing. But on Sunday there were certainly some inconsistencies in Garoppolo's game, which showed up on third and fourth downs in particular. The 49ers converted just two of 11 third-down opportunities on Sunday, while also falling short on each of their two chances on fourth down. One of Garoppolo's touchdown passes came on a

49ers injury news: George Kittle texts Mike Silver, says he is 'good to go' vs. Jets

Fans were awaiting word on the status of San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle, who appeared to suffer a leg injury before halftime during Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Kittle ended up playing in the second half but was held without a catch after his injury. It sounds like Kittle, at least in his mind, plans to play in Sunday's road game against the New York Jets as the 49ers try to get into the win column. "Good to go," Kittle texted Mike Silver of NFL Network. "On to New York!" That's some positive news, assuming the 49ers medical and coaching staffs feel the same way. Fans probably remember that Kittle suffered
