Packers vs 49ers :Five games in, and it’s already been a long season for the Green Bay Packers, who currently sit at 2-2-1 on the season. For the San Francisco 49ers, it’s been even longer. The Packers will play host to the 49ers on Monday Night Football for Week 6, beginning at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN (live streaming via ).
The 49ers have had to deal with losing their starting quarterback and starting running back in Jimmy Garoppolo and Jerick McKinnon, for the entirety of the 2018 season. They’ve also dealt with several more injuries, and while the Packers certainly aren’t the healthiest teams in the league, they have plenty more starters with which to face San Francisco.
Below is all you need to know to watch the action on Monday.

49ers vs. Packers news
While the biggest injuries are to the 49ers, the Packers are ailing too. It’s likely that bothRandall Cobb and Geronimo Allison will be inactive for Monday’s game.
And there is some good news for the 49ers on that front — the team was expected to make a roster move to promote a running back this week given the injuries to Matt Breida, but instead they promoted tight end Ross Dwelley, meaning Breida should play.
On the 49ers’ official injury report, Dante Pettis is listed out, while Trent Taylor is listed as doubtful. Both are receivers, while another receiver, Pierre Garcon, is questionable. All of tight end George Kittle, cornerback K’Waun Williams, and offensive linemen Mike Person, Weston Richburg, and Joe Staley are also questionable.
In addition to Cobb and Allison, the Packers listed safety Jermaine Whitehead, cornerbacks Bashaud Breeland and Jaire Alexander, and offensive linemen Justin McCray, Jason Spriggsand Bryan Bulaga as questionable.
The 49ers are no strangers to Monday Night Football, having not lost there since 2010.
