The 49ers claimed DE Cassius Marsh off waivers from the Patriots on Wednesday. Because the team released DE Datone Jones on Tuesday, Marsh can step into that spot on the roster. The team is also expected to bring defensive end Tank Carradine back from injured reserve this week, a move that would require another corresponding transaction.

Beathard to remain 49ers' QB vs. Seahawks

Coach Kyle Shanahan said C.J. Beathard's strong performance against the Giants in Week 10 played a big role in his decision to stick with Beathard as the team's starting quarterback for at least one more week.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says rookie C.J. Beathard will be his starting quarterback heading into Sunday's game against Seattle. Beathard's performance against the Giants a factor in that decision. Garoppolo will continue to get two out of about every 10 reps with the first team in practice as he works toward getting a better handle on the offense.

Long time 49ers RB Roger Craig and WR Terrell Owens are among the semifinalists for the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame class. General manager John Lynch also made the cut after making the finalist stage the past four years.

On free safety Adrian Colbert, 49ers GM John Lynch said if Colbert continues to play as well as he did against the Giants, it could force Niners to re-think secondary alignment moving forward. But key for Colbert is consistency. Also, Lynch called it a "long shot" that Colbert would play this week after thumb surgery last week. Didn't rule it out completely but might be difficult to return in such short order.

49ers GM John Lynch said coach Kyle Shanahan will make final decision on whether Jimmy Garoppolo or C.J. Beathard starts at quarterback this week. Lynch very complimentary of how Beathard performed in last game, though. "That's Kyle's decision," Lynch said. "Kyle and I, obviously, talk about it. But I think, they had that work in the bye - they'll come out to practice and let them play. C.J. played extremely well against the Giants … I'll let Kyle speak to that."

49ers inching closer to top-two pick

A week after losing to the Niners, the Giants toppled the Chiefs, putting San Francisco back in pole position for the No. 2 pick in April's draft. By FPI's measure, the 49ers still have a 25 percent shot at picking first overall.

49ers waived veteran DL Datone Jones. The move frees up a spot for DE Tank Carradine to return from IR this week if he's ready.

Grading the quarterback play for the 49ers

QB production from Brian Hoyer and now C.J. Beathard, or lack thereof, has been only one factor in a forgettable season in Santa Clara. At least there's the prospect of Jimmy Garappolo starting somewhere down the line to look forward to.

The 49ers claimed DL Sheldon Day off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Day was with DC Robert Saleh with the Jaguars and pair is now back together in San Francisco. Niners had a roster spot open, presumably to clear way for return of Tank Carradine but if he comes off injured reserve this week, team will now have to create room with another transaction.

George Kittle among top 25 NFL 'prospects'

There's no reason that Kittle can't emulate another Iowa standout, C.J. Fiedorowicz, and be a block-first, lower-rung receiving option on a good team.
