The defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers have been swept away by playoff contention, so they have little to play for Saturday in Arizona (4:30 pm ET), battling for a wild-card spot. The Cards will be hoping for a break with several 49ers, including quarterback Nick Mullens, leaving Rahim Mostert and cornerback Richard Sherman behind. CJ Beathard will get a start under center, while in rare good news, Pro Bowl tight end George Kaitel should return from injury. Arizona, which is optimistic on the position of running back Chase Edmonds, is a 5-point favorite at the William Hill Sportsbook NFL Hurdles.
Mulsen and Mostert are for sure; Mullens injured his elbow in last week’s loss in Dallas and will reportedly require Tommy John surgery – you haven’t heard that often outside of Major League Baseball – which risks his 2021 season.
Due to Mullons’ injury and the fact that Team Squad is on QB Josh Johnson’s practice reserve / COVID-19 list, the Niners have former Cardinals first-round pick Josh Rosen of the Tampa Bay practice squad back to beatheard this week signed on. Bethard is in his career as a career 1–9, which began in 2018. In the game he has thrown at least 10 passes, the Niners are 1-12 SU and 4-9 against Prasar.
If anyone could possibly fix Rosan, the No. 10 overall pick in the 2018 draft by Arizona, it would appear that San Francisco coach Kyle Sheahan would. The Nimmers opened a 21-day practice window for Jimmy Garrappolo, but there are no reports that the team is going to exclude Jimmy G for the final two meaningless games.
Most, who had a breakout 2019 season, have been injured more often than not this year and are back on injured reserve. In eight games, he ran 104 times for 521 yards (a very good 5.0 ypc) and scored two while catching 16 passes for 156 yards and TD. Haven’t played since Weekle 8 after breaking a bone in his leg, and this is putting his health at risk in a meaningless game for the team, but surprisingly, Shatan said the Kettle 100 Is the percentage.
Defensively, Sherman, who has been hurt for much of the year, is expected to sit safety Jimmy Ward and first-round punk defender Javon Kinlow. The Sherman prospect has played his last game in a Ninnars uniform as he is set for free agency and is certainly on a downward trajectory in his potential Hall of Fame career.
The critical injury to monitor for Arizona is for Edmonds, who is in question with ankle and knee issues. However, he was limited to one practice last week and played so it is expected that he will end it.
Edmunds originally took over as featured back next to Kenyan Drake. Edmunds has played more than 50 percent of offensive snacks in four of the last five games and last Sunday’s win over Philadelphia was 47 for 11 yards and 19 yards for three catches and a TD.
Arizona will receive a playoff spot on Sunday in Jacksonville with a win and a loss to the Bears. The Cards are 5–0–1 ATS in their last six games vs. San Francisco and have been dogged in the last five – three outright wins including Week 1.
