--CB Rashad Holman, the team's No. 3 corner with Jason Webster out, will be sidelined three weeks with a groin strain.
--RT Scott Gragg is
getting around a lot better but it is still uncertain whether he will be
available for the game Sunday against the Rams. Gragg's streak of 112
consecutive starts came to an end last week when he could not play in the season
opener because of a high left ankle sprain.
--LT Derrick Deese
sustained a right ankle sprain in the third quarter of the season opener against
the Bears. Although coach Dennis Erickson said he's been told Deese has a 50-50
shot at playing against the Rams, he added that he expects him to
--CB Jason Webster is beginning to walk after sustaining
an injured right knee, including a hairline fracture of the tibia. Webster is
expected to be out three more weeks with the injury.
--CB Jimmy Williams, who recorded his first career interception on Sunday, might be getting
a few more opportunities in the coming weeks. Williams has been elevated to the
team's No. 3 corner with Rashad Holman out an expected three
--OT Kwame Harris, the team's top draft pick, did not get
into the season opener at right tackle because starter Kyle Kosier was playing
very well. Harris eventually played some left tackle after Derrick Deese went
out with an injury. On the 12 snaps Harris played, the 49ers did nothing but run
--K Jeff Chandler made all five of his field-goal
attempts, but the team still auditioned free-agent Brett Conway this week.
Chandler made four of five extra-point attempts, hooking one wide left.
Chandler's kickoffs in the season opener were outstanding. He had one touchback
and the Bears' average starting point was the 24-yard line.
Chidi Ahanotu looks as if he was a solid acquisition for the 49ers. Ahanotu saw
most of his action in nickel situations at left end. He also showed some
versatility by moving inside on pass-rush downs. He had one tackle and also
recovered a fumble.
--WR Brandon Lloyd played sparingly but made
a significant impact. Lloyd was used in four-receiver sets on five plays, but he
made his mark with a blocked punt on special teams. Coach Dennis Erickson said
Lloyd has a knack for making plays on special teams.
