The 49ers will be without both of their starting safeties for Sunday’s game against the Patriots.

Jimmie Ward and Jaquiski Tartt have both been ruled out for Week 7. Ward was added to the injury report on Friday and did not participate in practice due to a quad injury. Tartt is sidelined by a groin injury.

The defense will also be without linebacker Kwon Alexander. He’s out with an ankle injury for the second straight week.

Running back Raheem Mostert was the only offensive player ruled out. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday that he’ll go on injured reserve after hurting his ankle last weekend.

Left tackle Trent Williams (ankle) and running back Jeff Wilson (calf) were listed as questionable.

  1. Cam has thrown for 150 yards in three games and 400 in one. Which is he? The 49ers are a good team that’s banged up. This is when Newton has to show that he can consistently start throwing for at least 200+ a game without interceptions. If he and the offense can’t do that against a 49ers team that’s missing pieces then the Patriots may not turn the corner this season, and if he can, two of their games were close competitive games against the seahawks and chiefs. The sky is the limit for them, or they could be the sub .500 team their record says they are. Now is when they need to turn it around though.

  2. Gotta say they dont need safeties. Cam refuses to throw more than 15 yards downfield because his receivers are simply dreadful. I swear SF could line up with 9 on defense and not skip a beat.

  3. Ah yes the weekly article about the 49ers having injured players.

    9ers had a fluke season & made it to the SB last year. Good for them! Let’s not pretend that they weren’t a horrible team the year before & again are a horrible team this year.

    Hmmm… wonder which is the real 49ers??

  4. Big week for Cam. Pats need him to play well and start building confidence and momentum.
