Willis, Ginn are inactive for 49ers vs. Seahawks

SEATTLE -- The 49ers will not have the services of linebacker Patrick Willis and wide receiver Ted Ginn for Saturday's game against the Seattle Seahawks.Willis will miss his third game due to the right hamstring strain he sustained early in the 49ers' Dec. 4 game against the St. Louis Rams. He began running at full speed during practices and did some work on a blocking sled Friday, but the 49ers decided to hold him out for another game.Ginn did not practice at all after sustaining an ankle sprain Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 49ers expect veteran receiver Braylon Edwards to step up in perhaps his biggest role of the season.Edwards has not been completely healthy since sustaining torn cartilage in his right knee on the third offensive play of the 49ers' Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Edwards' most productive game was a three-catch, 47-yard performance against the New York Giants on Nov. 13.Here are the complete lists of 49ers and Seahawks inactive players.49ers inactives

49ers CEO Jed York responds to Trump's 'callous and offensive comments'

San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York responded emphatically to the comments of President Donald Trump's views of those who take a knee in NFL games during the national anthem. 

Speaking in Huntsville, AL, on Friday, Trump told a group of his supporters during a campaign rally, "wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when someone disrespects our flag to say, 'get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out. He's fired. He's fired."

Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was the first to sit and then kneel during the national anthem as a protest against social injustices last season. As he did last season, 49ers safety Eric Reid has continued to take a knee during the 2017 season.

York was the third representative of an NFL team to speak out against Trump's actions. Since then, the Packers and Falcons have issued a statements.

Colin Kaepernick's mom responds to Trump's 'son of a b----' remark

In front of a raucus crowd at a rally in Alabama on Friday night, President Trump had pointed words for NFL players that are kneeling and protesting during the National Anthem.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump said.

Colin Kaepernick, who kneeled before every 49ers game last season, has yet to respond to those comments. But his mom, Teresa, made her thoughts clear on Twitter Friday night.

"Guess that makes me a proud bitch!" Teresa said in response to a journalist tweeting an article with Trump's comments.
