The Texans are hiring Demeco Ryans as HC, according to multiple reports. This has been assumed for at least a few days now, and it makes loads of sense for Houston. Ryans was a team leader across 6 years as MLB with the Texans, before finishing his playing career with 4 seasons in Philadelphia. He spent the past 6 years on San Francisco's coaching staff, including the past 2 as DC. Ryans piloted a 49ers defense that ranked 3rd and 1st in yards allowed the past 2 seasons; 9th and 1st in points allowed. He inherits a Texans roster that needs plenty of work. But Houston does hold 5 picks among the 1st 3 rounds of the 2023 NFL Draft, including the #2 and #12 overall selections. Expect the Texans to select their next QB in Round 1, with Bryce Young, C.J. Stroud and Will Levis all in the current early-Round 1 discussion. The 49ers defense, meanwhile, should be fine. San Francisco ranked 6th and 2nd in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA the 2 years before Ryans took the helm.

Niners LB Dre Greenlaw left Sunday's win over the Raiders with a back injury. HC Kyle Shanahan said Greenlaw would have a Monday MRI to determine the extent.

Niners CB Charvarius Ward (concussion) is active for today's game against the Commanders. Use him in IDP lineups if you'd planned to.

Niners CB Charvarius Ward (concussion) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Commanders. We'll check his status that afternoon.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that 49ers EDGE Nick Bosa (hamstring) "will play" today vs. the Buccaneers. That's significant for both IDP lineups and the 49ers' team defense. Bosa did sit out of practice all week, but he's still worth betting on for your fantasy football lineup. We've seen him effectively play through hamstring injuries before.

Niners EDGE Nick Bosa (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. We'll track his status over the weekend. Bosa is generally worth waiting for in IDP lineups if he has a shot to play.

Niners DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) put in a limited practice Wednesday. It marked the 1st time he has participated in a Wednesday practice since Week 1 and just his 3rd limited workout since then. Armstead has been dealing with lower-body issues all season. We'll see whether he's finally ready to return to game action for what would be the 1st time since Week 4.

Officials ejected 49ers LB Dre Greenlaw late in the 2nd quarter of Sunday night's game against the Chargers after a hit to the head of Chargers QB Justin Herbert. We wouldn't bet on any league suspension accompanying this, so Greenlaw should be set to return next Monday night at Arizona.

Niners LB Dre Greenlaw (calf) has been cleared to play Sunday night against the Chargers. Greenlaw hasn't played since Week 7, so it's tough to know if he's ready for a full snap allotment. But he'll carry upside if he does. The Chargers have supplied the 5th most fantasy points per game to LBs so far this season.

The 49ers got LB Dre Greenlaw (calf) back for a limited practice Wednesday. He missed the last game (Week 8) with the injury that knocked him out of the loss to the Chiefs. We'll watch to see whether he's ready to return to the lineup this Sunday against the Chargers. DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) remained out Wednesday, which doesn't bode well for his chances of playing for the 1st time since Week 4. EDGE Samson Ebukam (quad, Achilles') also didn't practice.

Niners DL Arik Armstead said Monday his return to action is "coming soon," according to NBC Sports Bay Area. Armstead revealed that he has been recovering from a hairline fracture in his left ankle. That plus plantar fasciitis in his left foot have kept him out since Week 4. We'll see whether Armstead is ready for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

The 49ers have ruled LB Dre Greenlaw (calf) and DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Rams. Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles looks like the fill-in for Greenlaw. Armstead will be missing his 4th straight game.

Niners LB Dre Greenlaw left Sunday's loss to the Chiefs with a right-calf injury and did not return. If he misses further time, the snaps would likely go to Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles. He stepped in for 56% playing time against K.C. LB Azeez Al-Shaair is already on IR with an MCL sprain that's expected to sideline him beyond Week 10.

Niners S Talanoa Hufanga (concussion) and CB Charvarius Ward (groin) are active for today's game against the Chiefs.

Niners S Talanoa Hufanga (concussion) and CB Charvarius Ward (groin) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) has been ruled out. It'll be the 3rd straight game he has missed.

Niners EDGE Nick Bosa is off the injury report and ready to play Sunday's game against the Chiefs. S Talanoa Hufanga (concussion) is questionable. He managed just a single limited practice and seems unlikely to play. CB Charvarius Ward (groin) is questionable as well. The 49ers have ruled DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) out.

Niners S Talanoa Hufanga entered the concussion protocol Monday. HC Kyle Shanahan said Hufanga passed his concussion test during Sunday's loss to the Falcons, and then another after the game, according to 49ers Webzone. But he then had concussion symptoms Monday morning, and a 3rd test placed him in the protocol. Plan on not having Hufanga available for IDP lineups this week. We'll keep an eye on his status.

11:35am EDT 10/16/22

Niners EDGE Nick Bosa (groin) is inactive for today's game against the Falcons.
