Brock out for Cardinals, 49ers missing key weapons for Week 11
The Arizona Cardinals had a full injury report with 14 players listed throughout the week but should be relatively healthy compared to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11.
Tramaine Brock (hamstring), Chase Edmonds (hamsting) and Damiere Byrd are all out for the Cardinals but key weapons George Kittle (knee/ankle), Matt Breida (ankle) and Joe Staley (finger) are out for San Francisco.
Offensive lineman Justin Murray was not on the inactive list and should see action for the first time since Week 8 for Arizona.
Terrell Suggs was not mentioned on the inactive list despite a DNP designation on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. That is good news for a defensive line took a hit on Wednesday when rookie DE Zach Allen was placed on IR.
Kittle leads the 49ers in receptions, targets and receiving yards and is one of the premier tight ends in the NFL, a position the Cardinals have struggled to defend so far this season.
He will likely be replaced by Ross Dwelley who filled in for Kittle last week taking part in 91% of the 49ers snaps against the Seahawks.
The 49ers will have WR Emmanuel Sanders at disposal as a pass catcher. Sanders had a questionable designation as of Friday after missing practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Breida is also the team’s leading rusher with 542 yards on the season, however Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert both have more than 300 yards rushing on the season in his place.
Other inactive for the Cardinals include RB Zach Zenner, OL Lamont Gaillard, OL Joshua Miles and DL Jonathan Bullard (foot). The 49ers will also be without DL D.J. Jones, LB Azeez Al-Shaair, K Robbie Gould and QB C.J. Beathard.
