Woerner had played the most snaps the season during the past three weeks, with Week 14 being the highest. Woerner played 24 snaps against Washington, which was nine more than the sixth-round rookie had played all season.

The team activated Mark Nzeocha from the injured reserve. He’ll likely play special teams, though I wonder if the team would start Nzeocha at SAM in this game, knowing the Cowboys want to run the ball. That’s unlikely since Nzeocha hadn’t played all season.

With Colton McKivitz and Tom Compton out, Dakoda Shepley will serve as center, while Isaiah Williams will be the swing offensive tackle. Remember, Justin Skule is starting at right guard.

Here are the moves the 49ers announced:

The following player has been activated from the Injured Reserve List:

Pos. Number Name

LB 53 Mark Nzeocha

The following players have been activated from the team’s practice squad (COVID-19 replacement):

Pos. Number Name

TE 88 Daniel Helm

OL 61 Dakoda Shepley

OL 76 Isaiah Williams

The following player has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 List:

Pos. Number Name

TE 89 Charlie Woerner
