49ers Depth Chart: Braylon Edwards Up, Bruce Miller Still Starting

The 49ers issued their latest game release, which includes an updated depth chart. There are generally not a ton of changes to the depth chart, but every so often there is a change or even a player staying in their current position raises an eyebrow or two.

This week, Braylon Edwards moved back into the starting lineup opposite Michael Crabtree. He received numerous snaps against the Cleveland Browns, but Ted Ginn actually got the official start. I suppose that's not a particularly big deal or a big change, but I thought it was worth mentioning. Edwards played 37 snaps this past week and will likely see a modest boost in that number against the Redskins. He will hopefully get a chance to use his physicality to take advantage of some one-on-one matchups.

The other non-change was that Bruce Miller remains in the starting lineup. Moran Norris was a limited participant in practice. He has been on the Sunday inactive list while dealing with his fibula injury but is starting to get back into practice. Miller is impressing most everybody at this point so we'll have to wait and see how this all plays out this Sunday and over the next couple weeks.

The most significant question at this point, given Miller's emergence, would be who would be deactivated if the team decided to activate Norris in the coming weeks. It's a tough situation to figure out. I would not be surprised if Norris was inactive for one more week. This would make sense particularly if Ray McDonald is a question mark on Sunday and the team needs Demarcus Dobbs active and available.
