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.
