Thursday, November 14th, 2019

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was courtside at Talking Stick Resort Arena on Tuesday night for the Phoenix Suns' 123-115 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, and was left starstruck — a feeling the reigning Heisman trophy winner and No. 1 overall draft pick doesn't have often. LeBron James dapped him up in the middle of the game. “It was crazy for me just because I mean he's like Michael Jordan to kids my age,” Murray said Wednesday.

49ers’ decisions on inactive players vs. Cardinals could be made for them

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

SANTA CLARA – NFL rules stipulate that teams are allowed to suit up a maximum of 46 players from their 53-man rosters for games. The 49ers might not have much wiggle room with their choices for active players for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium due to a stuffed injury report heading into the Week 11 game. Coach Kyle Shanahan said he certainly would entertain the possibility of suiting up fewer than 46 players because the 49ers would not want to place any of their players on injured reserve or create a roster spot by releasing anyone.

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

SANTA CLARA – 49ers rookie defensive end Nick Bosa's ability to make adjustments will be tested this week. For the first time in his career, he will face the same opponent twice in the same season when the 49ers meet the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in a Week 11 game at Levi's Stadium. That means another opportunity to go up against Cardinals left tackle, D.J. Humphries, a fifth-year pro who is having his best NFL season through 10 games.
