We are about an hour and a half away from kickoff. The San Francisco 49ers fly across country for the dreaded morning start for a West Coast team. Here’s a look at the inactive list for the Niners:

TE Ross Dwelley

QB Brandon Allen

OL Jaylon Moore

DT Arik Armstead

S Ji’Ayir Brown

WR Jauan Jennings

LB Jalen Graham

That means the 49ers will start a third different strong safety this year with Brown inactive. That player is most likely to be Logan Ryan, with Isaiah Oliver as the emergency safety.

Ambry Thomas is active, so San Francisco can remain consistent at cornerback. We’ll see if the plan is to work Jason Verrett in at nickel for the second week in a row.

Aaron Banks is also active, so the starting offensive line remains intact.

Jacoby Brissett was named the starter by the Washington Commanders earlier in the week. Then, during Thursday’s practice, Brissett suffered a hamstring injury. So the 49ers will face Sam Howell and Jake Fromm will back him up. Brissett is inactive and officially the emergency quarterback, like Allen.
