Injured left tackle Joe Staley (sprained knee) and cornerback Nate Clements (broken shoulder blade) are on San Francisco’s inactive list.
Tennessee defensive end Jevon Kearse is among the Titans’ inactives against San Francisco, the fourth straight game he hasn’t been on the active roster after being listed with a knee injury this week.
Leroy Harris started at right tackle in place of the inactive David Stewart, rookie Gerald McRath replaced David Thornton at outside linebacker, and cornerback Rod Hood stepped in to start for Nick Harper.
Also before the game, the Titans released receiver and kick returner Chris Davis, a fourth-round pick in 2007 who was arrested for driving under the influence in August, and signed center-guard Fernando Velasco.
