There were no surprises today for the 49ers inactive. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel was already ruled out. Jauan Jennings wasn’t working out during the pre-game warmups, so it seemed like he wouldn’t play.
So the 49ers will be without their starting wideout and slot receiver. Here’s a look at today’s inactives:
Jimmy Garoppolo will throw it to Brandon Aiyuk, Ray-Ray McCloud, Danny Gray, George Kittle, and a whole lot of Christian McCaffrey, one would imagine.
Jason Verrett has a chance to return after the bye week. The 49ers could use the talented cornerback down the stretch. This team should most of the injured players above, including Azeez Al-Shaair and Elijah Mitchell, back sooner than later.
But they’ll be shorthanded once again today. The Rams have actually swung toward 1-point favorites, which isn’t a significant move, but it tells you how many critical players are out for the 49ers.
