SANTA CLARA — This is the live blog for the pregame of the 49ers’ Week 12 game against the Redskins. I will update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box.
12:04 The 49ers’ inactives are Vance McDonald, Anthony Davis, Glenn Dorsey, Tramaine Brock, Bruce Ellington, Quinton Patton and Josh Johnson. McDonald has an injured hip.
12:05 The Redskins’ inactives are QB Kirk Cousins, WR Aldrick Robinson, CB David Amerson, LT Trent Williams, WR Leonard Hankerson, TE Jordan Reed and DL Chris Baker.
12:07 TE Niles Paul will start in place of Reed, OT Morgan Moses will start in place of Williams, CB Tracy Porter will start in place of Amerson, and DE Stephen Bowen will start in place of Baker.
12:11 Interested to see if the 49ers avoid running to their right without Anthony Davis in the lineup. The coaches didn’t seem to have much confidence in Jonathan Martin as a run blocker when he played earlier this season.
12:24 Did you know the Redskins have the 8th-ranked offense and the 10th-ranked defense in the league?
12:48 Matchup to watch: LG Mike Iupati vs. RDT Jason Hatcher. Hatcher has 6 sacks and 6 QB hits this season. Iupati struggles in pass protection.
