LT Taylor Decker won’t play for Detriot. That means Penei Sewell, who has only practiced at left tackle this week, will start for Decker.
The final injury report is out ahead of the San Francisco 49ers‘ first road game of the season against the Detriot Lions. But, thanks to our friends at Pride of Detriot, here’s a look at the Lions injury report:
“We’ve got a lot of flexibility because (Matt) Nelson has played a little bit,” Campbell said. “Certainly, we have (Penei) Sewell and then having Logan (Stenberg) be able to move up and bump (Halapoulivaati) Vaitai. So, we’ve got some options we’re going to play with.”
DL Michael Brockers (Shoulder) — Limited Practices all week
DL Nick Williams (Elbow) — Limited Practices all week
DL Levi Onwuzurike (Hip) — Limited Practices all week
CB A.J. Parker (Shoulder) — Limited Practices all week
Sewell played right tackle all offseason up until this week. Now, the first-round pick has a couple of practices under his belt at a position where he’ll face the 49ers’ strength.
According to the Lions’ depth chart, Brockers and Williams both start at defensive end, with Onwuzurike as their backup.
As for the 49ers, Trey Lance isn’t listed on the injury report:
WR Jalen Hurd
CB Emmanuel Moseley
DT Javon Kinlaw
DT Kevin Givens
Kyle Shanahan said the team isn’t considering putting Javon Kinlaw on the injured reserve yet, as Kinlaw still has a chance to play this week.
Instead, the team will check on the health of the injured players on Saturday before determining what moves need to be made ahead of the game as far as roster elevations from the practice squad.
It’ll be a coin flip to see who starts opposite Moseley between Demmodore Lenoir and Josh Norman.
Per Aaron Wilson, the 49ers released Shon Coleman from the injured reserve with an injury settlement.
