New 49ers HC Jim Tomsula said at his Thursday press conference that his defense will continue to run from a 3-4 base. There had been rumors of a switch to a 4-3 front after DC Vic Fangio left, which had IDP owners dreaming of an alignment that could accommodate LBs NaVorro Bowman, Patrick Willis and Chris Borland. Instead, 2 of those players (Bowman and 1 other) figure to continue starting at the inside spots, with Aldon Smith on the outside and Ahmad Brooks or Aaron Lynch across from him. We'll see how all the lineup pieces fall for the Niners.
Niners CB Emmanuel Moseley (knee), DE Arik Armstead (adductor) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) are questionable for Sunday night's game against the Packers. Armstead and Kinlaw played through questionable tags in Week 2. Moseley has yet to play this season.
Niners DE Arik Armstead (adductor) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) are active for today's game against the Eagles. Each player entered the day questionable. Their presence obviously helps, though it's still not a worrisome matchup for QB Jalen Hurts or RB Miles Sanders.
The 49ers are "optimistic" that DE Arik Armstead (adductor) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) will be active for today's game against the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Both are officially questionable, so we'll have to check their statuses later this morning. Each is just a lower-level IDP prospect, but their presence would obviously help the San Francisco defense. That said, we'd rather not use the unit either way against a Philly offense with plenty of scoring potential.
Niners CB Emmanuel Moseley (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles. He missed Week 1 and looks like he'll do the same thing. That leaves San Francisco without its top 2 corners, as Jason Verrett went down for the season in Week 1. DE Arik Armstead (adductor) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) are questionable. We'll see about their statuses Sunday morning.
