SANTA CLARA – Left tackle Joe Staley, who sat out the previous three games with a hamstring injury, will be back in the 49ers’ starting lineup for the season finale.
Staley is active for the 49ers’ game against the Seattle Seahawks at Levi’s Stadium. Staley was named the winner of the Bill Walsh Award on Friday as the team's most valuable player.
The 49ers are expected to announce the firing of general manager Trent Baalke after the game. Baalke was informed of his firing on Friday, sources told CSNBayArea.com.. He opted to finish out the season and attend Sunday's game.
The 49ers’ inactive list includes two recent notable draft picks that were healthy scratches. Outside linebacker Tank Carradine, who was counted on to become one of the team’s top pass rushers, will not record a sack this season. Carradine was a second-round draft pick in 2013.
The 49ers’ coaching staff also decided to deactivate running back Mike Davis, a fourth-round draft pick in 2015. Running back Raheeem Mostert, who was promoted from the practice squad on Saturday, got the call to suit up over Davis. Shaun Draughn and DuJuan Harris are the 49ers' other healthy running backs with Carlos Hyde out of action with a knee injury.
