Mostert, Sherman officially active for 49ers vs. Rams

NBC Sports

There were no surprises on the 49ers' list of inactive players for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles, as cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon was again a healthy scratch.

The 49ers will get veteran cornerback Richard Sherman back after he missed the past nine games with a calf injury. Running backs Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr., like Sherman, were activated from injured reserve Saturday after the pair missed extended time due to high ankle sprains.

The 49ers will not have receiver Brandon Aiyuk, defensive linemen D.J. Jones or Jordan Willis available to play against the Rams. Those players remain on the NFL's reserve/COVID-19 list.

Left tackle Trent Williams was activated from the COVID-19 list, and he will play Sunday.

Rookie Colton McKivitz will make his first NFL start at right guard, as veteran Tom Compton is out with a concussion he sustained last week during a walk-through practice.

Linebackers Dre Greenlaw and Azeez Al-Shaair, as well as tight end Jordan Reed are all available to play after being listed as "questionable" with non-COVID illnesses.

Rams tight end Tyler Higbee, who was listed as questionable heading into Sunday, will be active for LA.
