, Malcolm Smith and Reuben Foster all available when they face the Chiefs. While neither head coach Kyle Shanahan nor defensive coordinator Robert Saleh would admit to planning on all three being on the field at once, Saleh did explain that they always want the best 11 on the field: In his press conference on Friday, Shanahan would only admit that they do have a “very clear” picture of what their linebacker alignment would be in Kansas City but he would not share it. It really is what makes most sense, looking at the health of the secondary. The 49ers activated defensive back Tyvis Powell from the practice squad and released linebacker Terence Garvin which could be an indication of Jaquiski Tartt’s health which has been in question all week with a shoulder stinger. Ahkello Witherspoon is nursing an injured ankle and hip and Adrian Colbert isn’t 100% either with a slight hamstring strain. If the plan is to get the healthiest and best 11 on the field, the 49ers will have to field all three of the linebackers at once for at least a decent portion of their defensive snaps. Both Foster and Warner offer great coverage in the middle with their speed as we’ve seen in previous games. Smith hasn’t played SAM since high school but it may be a necessity, offering a more reliable option than Mark Nzeocha on the outside.Adrian Colbert misses second straight practice The San Francisco 49ers find themselves in a bit of a pickle on defense.
