  49ers | San Francisco on to NFC Championship game    Sat Jan 11, 07:36 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo went 11-for-19 for 131 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Minnesota Vikings in the Divisional Round playoff game. RB Tevin Coleman rushed for 105 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries. RB Raheem Mostert rushed for 58 yards on 12 carries, while RB Matt Breida rushed for 17 yards on eight carries. WR Deebo Samuel caught three passes for 42 yards on six targets. WR Kendrick Bourne caught three passes for 40 yards and one touchdown on five targets. WR Emmanuel Sanders caught two passes for 33 yards on two targets, while TE George Kittle caught three passes for 16 yards on five targets.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are going to be at home for the NFC Championship Game as the No.1 seed in the conference. Their defense is playing at a high level and their offense can beat you up with the ground game. We'll see if the Packers or the Seahawks are the team traveling to play the 49ers next Sunday.

  49ers | Week 14 injury report for San Francisco    Fri Dec 6, 03:43 PM

San Francisco 49ers S Jaquiski Tartt (ribs) and DT Jullian Taylor (elbow) were unable to practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints. WR Dante Pettis (knee), OT Joe Staley (finger) and WR Marquise Goodwin (knee, foot) were limited Friday, Dec. 6, and are listed as questionable. RB Matt Breida (ankle), DE Dee Ford (quad, hamstring), DL D.J. Jones (ankle), TE George Kittle (knee, ankle), WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder), WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and CB Richard Sherman (knee) were able to practice in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Staley's status is key for an offensive line that will need all hands on deck to slow down a hot Saints pass rush.

  49ers | Matt Breida full practices Thursday    Thu Dec 5, 05:16 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Breida will be back this week to cloud up an already difficult to discern backfield situation for the 49ers. There are three backs who should get touches, with Raheem Mostert clearly the hottest hand, but also the one that had the lowest status coming into the season.

  49ers | San Francisco's Week 13 injury report    Fri Nov 29, 05:46 PM

San Francisco 49ers DL Dee Ford (quad, hamstring) and WR Dante Pettis (knee) did not practice Friday, Nov. 29, and have been ruled out for Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens. RB Matt Breida (ankle) and OT Joe Staley were limited Friday and are listed as questionable. TE George Kittle (knee, ankle), WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) and WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) were also limited Friday but have been removed from the injury report. PK Robbie Gould (quad) and DT Jullian Taylor (jaw) practiced in full all week and also no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Breida could be back this week to downgrade Raheem Mostert's value, but he's not trustworthy yet, especially not against the tough Ravens defense. Staley's return would be a boon for Jimmy Garoppolo as he'll face a tough Ravens secondary and need time to break them down. Kittle, Samuel, Sanders appear to be out of the woods with the injuries that made them game-time decisions last week.

Footballguys view: As expected George Kittle, Emmanuel Sanders, and Deebo Samuel are all active. You can play them if you've been waiting on them and their presence helps Jimmy Garoppolo's outlook tonight.

  49ers | San Francisco's Week 12 injury report    Fri Nov 22, 05:52 PM

San Francisco 49ers OT Joe Staley (finger) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers. RB Matt Breida (ankle), DL Dee Ford (quad, hamstring) and PK Robbie Gould (quad) also did not practice all week and are listed as doubtful. TE George Kittle (knee, ankle), WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) and WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) were limited in practice for a straight day Friday, Nov. 22, and are listed as questionable. LB Azeez Al-Shaair (concussion) practiced in full all week, while RB Raheem Mostert (knee) and DL D.J. Jones (groin) practiced fully for a second straight day Friday; all three players no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Sanders, Samuel, and Kittle are all game-time calls, but seen by at least one beat writer as likely to play. Kittle is a must-play if active, and Sanders and Samuel have some upside as WR3/Flex options because of the matchup. You can carry a hedge from San Francisco, Green Bay, Baltimore or the Rams if you are planning on playing any of them.

  49ers | Matt Breida out at least this week    Wed Nov 13, 02:00 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) aggravated a low-grade ankle sprain and figures to miss the next week or two.

Footballguys view: It's a low-grade sprain so that's a positive for the 49ers and Breida. The 49ers have a deep and talented backfield so they don't need to rush him back out there. We'll see more Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson (in addition to Tevin Coleman) with Breida out.

  49ers | Matt Breida may miss time    Tue Nov 12, 01:45 PM

Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) may miss time to let his aggravated ankle sprain heal. He'll seek a second opinion on the injury, which doesn't sound like a bad one.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are deep and talented at the running back position, so they could give Breida some time off or limit him to get this injury right for the postseason run. We'd see more of Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson if Breida has to miss time.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are good to go with Tevin Coleman as their lead back. Breida serves as a valuable backup position who could get some carries against the Seahawks.

  49ers | Matt Breida leads team in rushing    Fri Nov 1, 01:35 AM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) carried the ball 15 times for 78 yards in the team's Week 9 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He added two receptions for 14 yards.

Footballguys view: Breida looked clearly superior to Tevin Coleman in terms of burst, although Coleman will remain the goal line back and probably more valuable on that designation alone. Breida remains a flex play with some risk and big play ceiling against the Seahawks next week.

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) is expected to play in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Breida is a what the heck flex with his ability to break any run for a long score against a suspect Cardinals defense, but he carries the risk of going on any given play with an injury.

  49ers | Matt Breida questionable    Wed Oct 30, 05:33 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

Footballguys view: Breida and Raheem Mostert are banged up this week. With a Thursday night game, the team might shut both down. We'll see what their status looks like on game day.

  49ers | Tuesday injury report for San Fran    Tue Oct 29, 10:25 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle), FB Kyle Juszczyk (knee), OT Mike McGlinchey (knee), RB Raheem Mostert (knee), TE Levine Toilolo (groin) and CB Ahkello Witherspoon (foot) didn't participate in practice Tuesday, Oct. 29. DE Dee Ford (quad), OT Justin Skule (knee/foot) and OT Joe Staley (leg) were limited participants.

Footballguys view: The 49ers play on Thursday night against the Cardinals. Watch the practice status of Breida and Mostert here. If they miss the game, then Jeff Wilson would get more work behind Tevin Coleman.

  49ers | Matt Breida a non-participant Tuesday    Tue Oct 29, 07:47 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) will be listed as a non-participant Tuesday, Oct. 29. The team isn't practicing but is holding a walkthrough ahead of Thursday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: It looks like Tevin Coleman is going to get most of the work again. Behind him, perhaps Jeff Wilson would get into the mix with Breida and Raheem Mostert both banged up. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said if the game was Tuesday, Breida would be unlikely to suit up, but he's hoping the RB can get in a limited session Wednesday, Oct. 30, and be good for Thursday.

  49ers | Matt Breida receives eight carries    Sun Oct 20, 04:07 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (eye) rushed for 35 yards on eight carries against the Washington Redskins in Week 7. He also caught one pass for one yard during the game.

Footballguys view: Breida is still a matchup flex, although the Panthers next week might not be the most favorable matchup. It's difficult to imagine the team giving him more than 15-18 touches in any game going forward.

  49ers | Matt Breida missed time in Week 7    Sun Oct 20, 03:42 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (eye, head) briefly left the Week 7 game because of a head injury but cleared the concussion protocol. He also left the game after he was poked in the eye.

Footballguys view: This was still a reminder of Breida's fragility and the 49ers likelihood to continue leaning more on Tevin Coleman in the backfield. With Raheem Mostert banged up, Jeff Wilson served as the #3 back today.

  Chiefs | LeSean McCoy gashing defenses on first down    Tue Oct 15, 02:57 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy leads all rushers - minimum 20 rush attempts - with 6.79 yards per carry on first down. Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson ranks second at 6.32, while Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (5.87), Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (5.83) and San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (5.71) round out the top five.

Footballguys view: McCoy can still play at a high level...provided he hangs onto the rock and does a good job in pass protection. The Chiefs travel to Denver to play the Broncos on Thursday night. McCoy has flex appeal in that matchup.
