New, comments

The 49ers and Broncos released their inactives, and the 49ers welcome back some members of their starting lineup. Anthony Davis and Tramaine Brock return. Here are the inactives.

The San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos each released their inactives for Week 7 Sunday Night Football, and we have some good news on the offensive line, and in the secondary. Right tackle Anthony Davis and cornerback Tramaine Brock are both active for Sunday Night Football. The big news is that Chris Culliver and Jimmie Ward are inactive.

Davis's activation would seem to mean he will be back in the starting lineup at right tackle. I suppose it is possible the team could have him active as an emergency option, but I think we end up seeing him in the starting lineup. Left guard Mike Iupati is inactive, which means Joe Looney is in at left guard. Marcus Martin is healthy, but inactive as he works to get up to speed in practice. That likely means Jonathan Martin is the swing tackle, and Dillon Farrell is the primary backup at center and guard.

Brock moves right back into the starting lineup opposite Perrish Cox. Culliver was questionable with a shoulder issue and late week hamstring problem. When the 49ers go into their nickel, Cox would likely move into the slot, and then either Dontae Johnson or Chris Cook would move into the starting lineup. The one who does not go into the lineup would probably then come out in the dime.

49ers inactives: CB Chris Culliver, G Mike Iupati, LB Patrick Willis, S Jimmie Ward, C Marcus Martin, WR Quinton Patton, DE Tank Carradine

Broncos inactives: WR Cody Latimer, RB Montee Ball, CB Tony Carter, LB Shaquil Barrett, G Ben Garland, T Michael Schofield and DT Mitch Unrein
