We’re here, and we have good news. Dee Ford will play for the San Francisco 49ers today. According to NFL Network’s Steve Wyche, Ford will be used primarily on passing downs. The team doesn’t want to use Ford too much, as his hamstring strain is still tender. As for Kwon Alexander, he’ll be the SAM linebacker according to Robert Saleh. Oddly enough, Alexander will be used on runn downs and will come off the field on passing downs, per Wyche. The team doesn’t want to “over burden” Alexander. As for Jaquiski Tartt, he’s a full-go. He’ll matchup against Kyle Rudolph.

Mike Person is active and will start at right guard. Person has missed the last couple of games with a neck injury. We’ll update the official injury report once that is released shortly.

Vikings wideout Adam Thielen is on the field running around. It looks like he’ll play.
