The San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears released their inactives, and Daniel Kilgore is active. The 49ers activated him from the PUP list on Saturday, but his status for today's game was up in the air. He has not played football since October 19, 2014, so his specific role is still TBD. My guess is he starts out rotating with Marcus Martin. I don't know if we see him splitting series 50/50, but I think we see a little bit of him. The team has five games to get him playing time, and I think we see his snaps increase each week.
There is no other surprising news in the inactives. Carlos Hyde and Garrett Celek were ruled out on Friday, so they were not going to be active. The 49ers did not add another tight end to the roster, so Vance McDonald and Blake Bell are the only two tight ends on the roster. Both had big catches in Week 12, so it will be interesting to see how involved they are this week.
49ers inactives: WR Jerome Simpson, WR DeAndrew White, RB Carlos Hyde, CB Chris Davis, G Brandon Thomas, OL Ian Silberman, TE Garrett Celek
Bears inactives: WR Eddie Royel, S Antrel Rolle, WR Marquess Wilson, CB Jacoby Glenn, RB Antone Smith, G/T Nick Becton, DL Bruce Gaston
