Fooch’s update: It would appear Person will get the start over Toran at right guard.
During #49ers early team warm ups, Mike Person is in with the starting line up at RG.— Jennifer Lee Chan (@jenniferleechan) September 16, 2018
The San Francisco 49ers announced their inactives, and we don’t have any big surprises. Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, guard Joshua Garnett, and offensive lineman Erik Magnuson were all ruled out on Friday, and thus are inactive.
Right guard Mike Person is active for this game after entering the weekend questionable with a foot injury. Rookie Najee Toran was expected to start at right guard if Garnett and Person were inactive, but Person is available. We’ll find out shortly if Person will start at guard, or will be the top reserve interior lineman.
Goodwin’s absence brings another rookie addition to the lineup. Second round pick Dante Pettis will be in the starting lineup opposite Pierre Garçon.
The Lions will be without Ezekiel Ansah, who is dealing with a shoulder injury. The thought was that he would be available, but he is officially scratched for the game.
49ers inactives: LB Malcolm Smith, OL Erik Magnuson, DL Jullian Taylor, OL Shon Coleman, WR Marquise Goodwin, OG Joshua Garnett, OL Matt Tobin
Lions inactives: DE Ziggy Ansah, G T.J. Lang, RB Ameer Abdullah, OL Jamil Demby, OL Andrew Donnal, TE Hakeem Valles, WR Brandon Powell
