The 49ers are losing right tackles at an alarming rate.

The San Francisco 49ers are losing some notable players to injury. Shortly after losing Jimmie Ward to a forearm injury, the 49ers ruled right tackle Garry Gilliam out with a knee injury. Zane Beadles replaces him at right tackle.

Gilliam was in the game because Trent Brown is inactive due to a Week 7 concussion. Gilliam had been the swing tackle, but his move into the lineup meant Beadles was the swing tackle. Now that Gilliam is out and Beadles is in at right tackle, I have no idea who is the swing tackle. I can say that this likely means Erik Magnuson is now the 49ers primary interior reserve lineman.

The 49ers offensive line has been patch work, and going against a strong Eagles run defense and stout pass rush, this is not an ideal situation to be mixing and matching bad offensive linemen.
