Fooch’s update: Other players not in uniform:
Also not suited up— Jennifer Lee Chan (@jenniferleechan) September 2, 2016
Among the other #49ers not suited up: Antoine Bethea, Eric Reid, Trent Brown, Anthony Davis, NaVorro Bowman, Eli Harold, Tramaine Brock.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) September 2, 2016
The San Francisco 49ers announced their inactives for the preseason finale, and a few notable starters are out before the game even begins. Joe Staley, Carlos Hyde, and Blaine Gabbert are all out on the offensive side of the ball. Arik Armstead, Quinton Dial, and Keith Reaser are the most notable on the defensive side of the ball.
This does not mean all the active players will play. I would not be surprised if some of the starters end up getting few if any snaps. Ideally, guys like NaVorro Bowman, Ahmad Brooks, Torrey Smith, and maybe Zane Beadles and Daniel Kilgore just get the day off. I’m sure some of them will play, but some will get the night off.
