Darrel Young and Stephen Bowen highlight the inactive list as the Redskins take on the 49ers on Monday Night Football. Bowen's loss could be significant for the Redskins defense as they look to slow San Francisco running back Frank Gore.

Young has become an offensive weapon around the goal line for the Redskins, accounting for four touchdowns on the season. With Young out at fullback, Washington could deploy more two tight end sets with Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen getting increased time to go along with Fred Davis. Davis has not seen the field in over a month, but will get a lot of action with rookie Jordan Reed out with a concussion. 

Starters Bowen and Young will be joined on the inactive list by Rex Grossman, Reed, Josh LeRibeus, Jose Gumbs, and Brandon Jenkins.
