Matt Breida pushing to play on Monday Night Football Womens Jimmie Ward Jersey , but still a game-time decision The San Francisco 49ers still are uncertain about the status of running back Matt Breida for Monday Night Football against the Green Bay Packers, according to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero. Breida is pushing to play in spite of an ankle injury that cost him two days of practice this week, but it is a game-time decision.The team will announce inactives at approximately 3:45 p.m. PT. However, they have a decision to make three hours earlier. Teams playing on Monday have until 1 p.m. PT that day to promote a player from the practice squad. Teams playing on Sunday have to decide by 1 p.m. on Saturday because the league does not allow Sunday transactions. However, because Monday is a normal day of business, MNF teams get the benefit of waiting until game day.The 49ers will decide by then whether or not they want to promote running backs Jeff Wilson or Matt Dayes from the practice squad. The decision will likely come down to the last minute because it depends on other positional needs. The 49ers will be without wide receiver Dante Pettis, and their questionable list includes Breida, WR Pierre Gar莽on, TE George Kittle, OG Mike Person http://www.49erslockerroom.com/authentic-mike-mcglinchey-jersey , C Weston Richburg, OTJoe Staley, and nickel back K’Waun Williams.Odds are pretty good that whole group is playing, but if the 49ers are short-handed at one of those positions, they might decide they can’t afford to waive another player to make room for Wilson or Dayes.Pre-game warmups will be critical for the 49ers to figure out Breida’s status, as well as that of the rest of the questionable players. I suspect the team will be going through whatever they can at the hotel beforehand, but it would make sense to get the injured players out to Lambeau Field a little earlier than normal to put them through their paces. And it is still possible even if they promote Wilson or Dayes that they decide Breida can be active. My guess is a promotion precludes it, but we’ll find out later this afternoon. SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman remained in a walking boot Thursday.However he was adamant that his strained left calf is not related to his other more serious leg problems of the past year.Sherman hurt his calf in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss at Kansas City and didn’t return. Team officials said he’ll miss at least two games, though Sherman said the only certainty was that he’d be sidelined for this Sunday’s road game against the Los Angeles Chargers.The three-time All-Pro missed the final seven games of last season after having surgery to repair a ruptured right Achilles tendon. But given that he also had surgery on his left Achilles during the offseason Tevin Coleman Jersey , Sherman was asked whether his current left leg injury might be connected to past issues.“It just makes it an easy story for you guys. Makes it lazy reporting,” Sherman said. “But nah, it’s getting back out there and going through the trials and tribulations of a season, wear and tear of football and taking all these reps after not taking them for eight months. Your body’s gotta get used to it again.”The 30-year-old Sherman missed a practice leading into the Chiefs game for what the team described as a “heel” issue, so he at least was on the injury radar even before Sunday.His absence is a damaging blow for a 49ers pass defense that ranks 27th in the NFL at 287.7 yards allowed per game. The Chargers enter Sunday ranked fifth in total offense (415.3 yards per game).Jimmie Ward, who has spent part of his career at safety, is expected to start in Sherman’s place. Second-year player Ahkello Witherspoon, who struggled two weeks ago against Detroit, likely will man the other cornerback spot.Compounding things is that both of San Francisco’s starting safeties, Adrian Colbert and Jaquiski Tartt Arik Armstead Jersey , are battling injuries and their status is unknown for Sunday.But aside from health, the biggest issue for San Francisco’s defense has been poor tackling through the first three games. Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said his unit is getting back to basics in practice, drilling on fundamentals even when the team is out of pads.“It’s very clear when you turn on the tape that we’re actually lunging and ducking our heads at the point of attack,” Saleh said. “When you teach tackling, everything that we talk about is you’ve got to run your body through their body.“Get a body on a body, step on their toes, wrap up, keep your feet moving, drive for five and get them to the ground.”The biggest culprits last Sunday were inside linebackers Reuben Foster and rookie Fred Warner, who missed six and four tackles respectively. Those two are believed to be a promising young core of the 49ers defense.But Sunday was Foster’s season debut after serving a two-game suspension. Saleh said Foster may have been knocking rust off Womens Jerick McKinnon Jersey , but the linebacker wasn’t letting himself off the hook.“That’s uncalled for, just missing tackles like that,” Foster said. “That’s not like us as a team and that’s not like me.”NOTES: Tartt (shoulder) missed Thursday’s practice as did guard Joshua Garnett (toe). Colbert (hip), running back Alfred Morris (knee) and guard Mike Person (knee) were limited. . Foster used “Roody-poo” in a quote earlier this week, a term made famous by “The Rock” during his wrestling days. Foster was delighted that the Hollywood star referenced it on Twitter. “It was amazing,” Foster said of the shout-out.
