Linebacker Donnie Edwards and offensive guard Bob Hallen, both of whom left the contest with concussions, are doing "very, very well, and we would think that we would be able to have both of them back," according to coach Marty Schottenheimer.
As for the previous injuries, Schottenheimer said he expects offensive tackle Vaughn Parker (torn triceps) to miss another game, but left tackle Damion McIntosh (sprained ankle) has a "reasonably good chance" to return for this weekend's game at Miami.
Toniu Fonoti who provided a gutsy performance on Sunday will get some extra rest this week but will suit up on Sunday.
Tight end Josh Norman will return to action this week after missing a few games with a calf injury.
The status of Michael Keathley is still uncertain as of this release. Keathley sprained an ankle in the win against San Francisco.
Schottenheimer said Orlando Ruff was outstanding in replacing Edwards in the base defense.
"Orlando Ruff made a play that the first thought that crossed my mind was Dick Butkus," Schottenheimer said. "I mean . . . there's a running play and the offensive guard comes off and Orlando literally lifts the guy off his feet and throws him on the ground. And on the one toss play that came toward our bench in the late third quarter, he went in there and blew the thing up. He really did an outstanding job for us."
Schottenheimer also praised the efforts of several other reserve players from Sunday, naming linebacker Zeke Moreno, wide receiver Eric Parker, offensive guards Kelvin Garmon and Michael Keathley and special-teams regular/reserve fullback Joey Goodspeed.
Jammer has quickly established himself as the team's nickel back, and he had another solid game on Sunday: seven tackles and a team-high three passes defensed. Jammer never did blink when going against the Niners' talented receivers, including Terrell Owens. "That's what I'm expected to do and I'm getting a lot more confidence," Jammer said. "I'm as comfortable now as I've been since I came here. I went out there and I made plays and I expect to make every play. I felt like I had a good game, but I didn't play as well as I could have."
Jammer possesses two attributes coach Marty Schottenheimer embraces: the physical skills to be a press, shutdown corner, and the humility to work hard and strive to get better each day. Jammer left Sunday's game with an ankle injury but it did not stop him from contributing after he came back on the field.
