49ers inactives vs. Rams: Ty Davis-Price sitting for 2nd straight week

It's official: Tyrion Davis-Price is at the bottom of the 49ers pecking order at running back.

The 49ers have a clean slate of health entering their Week 2 matchup against the Rams, but Tyrion Davis-Price seems to be an excess commodity (again).

It's weird to think of a San Francisco 49ers team boasting a clean slate of health, but that appears to be the case for head coach Kyle Shanahan and Co. entering their Week 2 road matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.

The Niners did have one notable setback with second-year cornerback Samuel Womack heading to injured reserve with an injury, and he's expected to miss at least six weeks.

Aside from that, though, San Francisco's Week 2 injury report is awfully light, and there aren't expected to be any injury-related inactives for the game at SoFI Stadium.

That said, one of the other members of Womack's 2022 NFL Draft class, running back Tyrion Davis-Price, finds himself a healthy scratch for the second week in a row.

Even though Davis-Price impressed enough in training camp and the preseason after a disappointing rookie year, it appears as if he's no better than the fourth option on the 49ers' running back depth chart.

Davis-Price isn't aided by the Niners' boasting an All-Pro at running back in Christian McCaffrey, who headlines the group with Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason already in support.

And since there aren't any injuries there to report, Davis-Price isn't needed to plug any voids.

Here are San Francisco's inactive players for Week 2:

  • RB Tyrion Davis-Price
  • QB Brandon Allen (third QB)
  • G Nick Zakelj
  • DT Kalia Davis
  • LB Jalen Graham

While Davis-Price is out, the 49ers are hoping McCaffrey can come close to replicating what he did the last time he was at SoFI Stadium: a three-touchdown performance that included one score on the ground, another on a catch and even a passing touchdown for the holy NFL trifecta.

That might be a stretch, but it's something to watch when the Niners and Rams kick off at 4:05 p.m. ET.
