“I couldn’t miss any more [games]," Pierce said after the Ravens’ 20-17 win. "I was going out there with the ankle responding or not, but thankfully, the Lord blessed me and I’m healthy now.”

The Ravens deactivated quarterback Trace McSorley, wide receiver Jaleel Scott, safety Bennett Jackson, cornerbacks Anthony Averett and Iman Marshall, guard Ben Powers and defensive tackle Zach Sieler.

The 49ers ruled out three starters: defensive end Dee Ford (quad, hamstring), running back Matt Breida (ankle) and offensive tackle Joe Staley (finger).

San Francisco also deactivated wide receiver Dante Pettis (knee), quarterback C.J. Beathard, kicker Chase McLaughlin and tight end Levine Toilolo.
