49ers activate pair of tight ends

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Tight ends Garrett Celek & Asante Cleveland were added to San Francisco's active roster before the 49ers' game Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks.

Celek was activated from the physically unable to perform list & Cleveland was promoted from the practice squad. San Francisco right tackle Anthony Davis missed his second straight game with a concussion, while Jonathan Martin again started in his place.

For Seattle, which like San Francisco is 7-4, cornerback Jeremy Lane is inactive after being listed on the injury report as questionable with a glute injury. Marcus Burley will start at the nickel spot.

p>To make room on the roster for Celek, the 49ers placed tight end Derek Carrier on season-ending injured reserve & waived linebacker Chase Thomas.

Celek has appeared in 25 games over the past two seasons, with six catches for 89 yards. Cleveland played in the 49ers 23-14 loss at Arizona before being waived & resigned to the practice squad.
