East Rutherford, NJ — This is the live blog for the pregame of the 49ers’ Week 11 game against the Giants. I will update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box.
8:35 The 49ers’ inactives are Tramaine Brock, Dan Skuta, Bruce Ellington, Dillon Farrell, Quinton Patton, Josh Johnson and Ian Williams.
8:37 Quinton Dial will start for Ian Williams. Aaron Lynch will start for Skuta. Perrish Cox will start for Brock.
8:38 The Giants’ inactives are CB Mike Harris, LB Jacquian Williams, G Adam Snyder, DE Kerry Wynn, T James Brewer, G Brandon Mosley and DT Cullen Jenkins.
8:39 DT Mike Peterson will start for Jenkins. LB Mark Herzlich will start for Jacquian Williams.
8:52 The 49ers’ pass defense should be vulnerable — only six cornerbacks are healthy and active for this game — Perrish Cox, Chris Culliver, Dontae Johnson and Leon McFadden. But the Giants’ offensive line is makeshift, so the 49ers should get pressure on Eli Manning.
9:32 Ian Rapoport tweeted this 25 minutes ago: “Jim Harbaugh is no longer on the Dolphins radar in unlikely event Philbin is fired. His wife wants to stay in the Bay Area. Hello Raiders.”
