Here, we will take a look at seven players who could soon lose their starting spots, or maybe their jobs. This could happen within the next few weeks and reserves capable of taking on bigger roles.
Breeland hasn't recorded a pass breakup this season. Through four games, Breeland has surrendered 22 completions on 26 targets for 299 yards and four touchdowns. He's allowed a 154.2 passer rating in coverage. With those numbers, the Vikings might have opted to insert Dantzler out of necessity.
Jimmy Garoppolo finished 9-of-18 for 157 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for 41 yards. The 49ers think Garoppolo could play against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5, but head coach Kyle Shanahan doesn't seem as tethered to his veteran quarterback.
Ingram, 31, isn't much of a threat as a pass-catcher, and he's averaging a career-low 3.3 yards per carry. After a decent season-opening performance with 26 carries for 85 yards and a touchdown.
As a collegian, Price played safety, but he's a 6'3", 208-pound defensive back who fits the team's mold of big-bodied boundary defenders. Whereas compared to his rookie season, he didn't play a snap on defense and spent most of his time with the practice squad.
Ben Roethlisberger doesn't deserve all the blame for the Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive issues. The line has had its hiccups with four new primary starters, but the unit put together a solid performance against the Green Bay Packers last week.
