Paul Steinbach Headshot

Santa Clara County, Calif., announced Saturday that it was pausing contact sports beginning today through Dec. 21, leaving local teams to search for new places to play.

Sports Illustrated, citing NFL Network's Ian Rappaport, reported that the San Francisco 49ers will like play their final three home games at State Farm Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals, who appear open to the idea.

San Francisco said in a statement Saturday that the team is "aware" of the Santa Clara County Public Health Department's directive and is working with the NFL on "operational plans." It is unclear when a final decision about their future site will be reached. NFL Network also reports that a stadium located in Texas is also a possibility and that the league wants San Francisco to play in an NFL stadium if possible.
