The San Francisco 49ers will head into their season finale extremely short-handed.

Their status report Friday included seven players ruled out and three others questionable. Six starters who weren’t on Injured Reserve will also not suit up for San Francisco on Sunday.

Here’s the injury report for Week 17:

Out

CB Richard Sherman (calf) WR Brandon Aiyuk (ankle) DT Kevin Givens (not injury related) DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring) CB K'Waun Williams (shin) LB Dre Greenlaw (calf) There aren't any real surprises here outside of Greenlaw. He showed up Friday as a non-participant on the practice report. Jordan Willis and Trent Williams were also non-participants the first two days of practice. They got placed on Injured Reserve on Friday.

Questionable

Michael Chow-Arizona Republic

S Tarvarius Moore (ankle) CB Emmanuel Moseley (hamstring) LB Mark Nzeocha (illness) Moore and Moseley were limited all week, and Nzeocha was limited Thursday and Friday after missing Wednesday's session. Moseley would likely start with K'Waun Williams and Richard Sherman out, and Moore would likely start at strong safety if he's able to play. If neither player can go, it'll be all hands on deck in San Francisco's secondary.

Justin Skule was limited the first two days of practice with a knee injury, but he was a full go Friday and didn't show up on the status report. He figures to slot in as the starting left tackle with Trent Williams on IR. Defensive end Dion Jordan was also limited all week until Friday. Jimmie Ward made it through concussion protocol and is not on the status report.
