Bethea ended the 2014 on a quiet note, recording just four tackles (all solo) in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Bethea finishes his first season in San Francisco with 86 tackles (72 solo), four interceptions, a sack, and a forced fumble. The 86 tackles were below his career-average of 100.8, but the four interceptions matched a career-high. Bethea is under contract through 2018, so he should continue to rack up the tackles and interceptions for the 49ers next season.

Bethea had his best game as a member of the 49ers on Saturday, collecting eight tackles (seven solo) and taking an interception to house in the overtime loss to San Diego.

With 82 combined tackles and four interceptions on the season, Bethea put together a solid campaign in his first season with San Francisco. The tackles are a little bit under his career averages in Indianapolis, but the four picks ties a career-high. With fellow safety Eric Reid (concussion) likely out next week, Bethea should have another opportunity to put up strong numbers in the 49ers' season finale against Arizona next week.

Bethea (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, the 49ers' official site reports.

Bethea entered Week 4 with 13 tackles (12 solo), but he took kindly to the Eagles, forcing two turnovers (one interception and one fumble), while racking up a season-best seven solo stops. He fended off his current ankle issue to put up the preceding line, meaning his reduced reps are likely precautionary in nature.
