“49ers Talk” hosts Matt Maiocco and Jennifer Lee Chan discuss what has attributed to the 49ers’ success this season.

SANTA CLARA — The 49ers on Friday revealed the identities of six of their required seven inactive players for the team’s regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams.

And the seventh will be 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy, who is expected to be in uniform as the team’s emergency third quarterback.

Purdy, who set the club record with 4,280 yards passing this season, would see action Sunday only if starter Sam Darnold and backup Brandon Allen were forced out of action due to injuries.

Coach Kyle Shanahan said the following six players were being ruled out from appearing in the Week 18 game: running back Christian McCaffrey (calf), defensive tackle Arik Armstead (foot, knee), tight end Ross Dwelley (ankle), cornerback Ambry Thomas (hand), and starting safeties Ji’Ayir Brown (knee) and Tashaun Gipson (quadriceps).

Wide receiver Jauan Jennings, who missed the 49ers’ past two games while in the NFL’s concussion protocol, is listed as questionable.

The 49ers will activate receiver Ray-Ray McCloud from injured reserve, Shanahan said. The team must make a corresponding move to create space for him on the 53-man roster.

San Francisco is expected to elevate two players from their practice squad to be available to suit up and see significant action against the Rams.
