SANTA CLARA, Calif. — There were no real surprises for the Rams' inactives in Week 7. But the 49ers will be without two of their top cornerbacks.
Both Richard Sherman and Jimmie Ward are inactive for San Francisco on Sunday. Ward was listed as doubtful on Friday with a hamstring injury. Sherman was questionable with a calf injury, however he did not participate in Friday's practice.
Both being out could have a significant effect on the Niners defense.

For the Rams, as expected, wide receiver Cooper Kupp is inactive with a knee injury. Head coach Sean McVay has called Kupp week-to-week after the wideout suffered the injury in last week’s victory over the Broncos. Josh Reynolds is likely to start as the Rams’ third wideout in Week 7.
Los Angeles signed wide receiver Nick Williams on Tuesday and he is active for today’s game. Williams’ last stop in the NFL was with Tennessee, which runs a similar offensive system to the Rams under former offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur.
Kicker Greg Zuerlein is officially active for Sunday’s contest and will play in his first game since Week 1. The 2017 All-Pro hit four-of-five field goals in that contest, including one from 55-yards out.
Below is the full list of inactives for both teams.
