That puts more on the plate of Javon Kinlaw, Kevin Givens, and Kalia Davis. That trio has performed well this season, but now they’ll be asked to do it for a full game and not just part-time.
It’ll be interesting to see how heavy of a ground attack the Arizona Cardinals employ, and how often they’ll rely on Kyler Murray as a rushing threat.
There were no true surprises on the injury report. Logan Ryan is wearing No. 33. There will be a youth movement, potentially, today. Robert Beal Jr. is set to make his debut. He’s wearing No. 51.
The 49ers won’t lack offensively. A fast start could go a long way in putting pressure on the Cardinals to score, leading to a potential turnover.
