The "X-Factor" on the 49ers Defense

When thinking about the 49ers defense, who comes to mind? Normally, it's a variety of Nick Bosa and Fred Warner, with an occasional sprinkle of Arik Armstead and Dee Ford. Over the course of this season, there have been a few standouts; Jimmie Ward and Azeez Al-Shaair most notably, but with all of the recognition towards those specific players, there has been one under-the-radar "X-Factor"—cornerback Emmanuel Moseley. As part of a secondary that has arguably been San Francisco's biggest defensive flaw, Moseley has been overshadowed, both by the good play of Jimmie Ward, but also by the inconsistencies from the rest of the group. Moseley, who is just 25, re-signed with the 49ers in the offseason on a 2-year, $10 million deal, and has most

Sunday could feature the return of two key San Francisco 49ers role players—running back JaMycal Hasty and defensive lineman Maurice Hurst. Hasty has been dealing with the ankle injury he suffered during Week 9's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Hurst sustained a calf injury during an October practice. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said both players will be limited in Wednesday's practice but could play on Sunday. The coach added that several players would not practice. They are wide receiver Deebo Samuel (groin), linebacker Fred Warner (hamstring), running back Trey Sermon (ankle), linebacker Dre Greenlaw (groin), and linebacker Marcell Harris (concussion protocol).



John Lynch says Frank Gore loves 49ers' Deebo Samuel as a running back

On Wednesday morning, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR. A former NFL running back and 49ers fan favorite, Frank Gore, was with Lynch in team CEO Jed York's suite this past Sunday during the team's 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He remains close with the York family and continues to be a big fan of his former organization. Gore was treated to watching a 79-yard, one-touchdown rushing performance from Deebo Samuel — a wide receiver. That came on just eight attempts, meaning the receiver averaged nearly 10 yards per carry. Gore believes Samuel is so impressive that the third-year wideout is good enough to be a great running back. "He loves Deebo as a running back," Lynch said. "He probably feels that if we
