The San Francisco 49ers will be on the road for their final preseason game of the year Thursday night against the Houston Texans.
In fact, their next two games are in the state of Texas, as they play Houston then open up at Dallas on September 7.
San Francisco will enter Thursday’s game with a trimmed down roster of 75 players, 22 of whom which will probably play in their final game as a member of the 49ers. Shortly thereafter, the final roster of 53 will be announced.
Key position battles remaining include defensive line, linebacker, and cornerback where about 30 players are currently battling for as many as 22 roster spots.
As for quarterback, the depth chart might be locked up already, after Blaine Gabbert bounced back against San Diego, leading the 49ers to their first touchdown of the preseason, culminating in a 6-yard pass to Vance McDonald.
The only question remaining, will the 49ers carry three QBs, or two like they did last season.
Below is the media information regarding the final preseason game of the year for the 49ers.
