49ers' updated interview schedule

After interviewing Indianapolis Colts executive Jimmy Raye III for the vacant general manage position on Sunday, the 49ers have two interviews scheduled for both of the next two days on the East Coast.

The 49ers’ updated interview schedule consists of Monday meetings with Washington offensive coordinator Sean McVay for head coach and Carolina Panthers assistant general manager Brandon Beane for the 49ers’ GM position.

On Tuesday, the 49ers are scheduled to interview Carolina defensive coordinator Sean McDermott for the head-coaching position and ESPN analyst Louis Riddick for general manager.

CEO Jed York and Paraag Marathe, the 49ers’ chief strategy officer and executive vice president of football operations, are conducting the interviews as the organization searches for a coach-general manager tandem to replace Chip Kelly and Trent Baalke.

The 49ers have already interviewed three head-coach candidates: Buffalo interim head coach Anthony Lynn, Atlanta offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, and New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

The 49ers have interviewed four general manager candidates: Green Bay director of football operations Eliot Wolf, Green Bay director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst, Minnesota assistant general manager George Paton, and Raye, the Colts’ vice president of football operations.

Seattle offensive line coach Tom Cable is scheduled to interview with the 49ers next Sunday, according to an ESPN report, while the Seahawks' co-directors of player personnel, Scott Fitterer and Trent Kirchner, are reportedly set to meet with York and Marathe the next day.

49ers call up DB Tyvis Powell from practice squad

49ers call up DB Tyvis Powell from practice squad

KANSAS CITY – Starting strong safety Jaquiski Tartt is questionable for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs with a shoulder injury, so the 49ers took out an insurance policy.

The team promoted defensive back Tyvis Powell to the active roster from the practice squad on Saturday and released linebacker Terence Garvin.

Powell, Antone Exum and D.J. Reed saw action at strong safety in practices this week, 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said.

Powell, who saw action in three games for the 49ers last season, moved to safety late in training camp this summer. He was among the team’s final cuts but was immediately signed to the practice squad. Powell will wear No. 30 on Sunday against the Chiefs. Garvin spent one game with the 49ers and recorded one special-teams tackle against the Detroit Lions last week.

NFL picks: 49ers vs. Chiefs Week 3 score predictions

The 49ers (1-1) take their show on the road to Kansas City on Sunday as they face the Chiefs (2-0) in Week 3 of the 2018 NFL season.

San Francisco will be tasked with trying to slow down Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who has thrown 10 touchdown passes and has yet to be intercepted in two games.

Running back Matt Breida will look to reclaim his place as the NFL's leading rusher. The second-year back enters the game with 184 yards, trailing former 49er Carlos Hyde, who has 203 rushing yards following Cleveland's win on Thursday night.

NFL experts from around the country have made their picks for Sunday's clash, and all of them see the Chiefs dropping the 49ers to 1-2.
