49ers CB Ahkello Witherspoon (foot) said he's starting in Saturday's Divisional Round matchup against the Vikings.
09 January 2020
Witherspoon has started in San Francisco's past five games but has been out-performed by UDFA Emmanuel Mosley on the perimeter in that span. It's still worrisome news for Minnesota's aerial attack as Dee Ford, Jaquiski Tartt and Kwon Alexander are also expected to make their return on Saturday. The Vikings will clearly need Stefon Diggs (illness) and Adam Thielen (ankle) at full strength.
