The 49ers got LBs Malcolm Smith and Reuben Foster back on the practice field Wednesday. Smith didn't even appear on the injury report, putting in a full workout after missing the 1st 2 games with a hamstring injury. Foster, meanwhile, completed his 2-game conduct-policy suspension and is eligible to return against the Chiefs this Sunday. HC Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday the coaches haven't decided on a plan for their LBs yet. The performance of rookie Fred Warner through 2 weeks complicates the decision. We'll watch for word from the coaches through the week. If we don't gain clarity before Sunday, though, it'll be tough to trust any Niners LB in IDP lineups.
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.
