49ers Tuesday Tidbits

News and notes on the San Francisco 49ers.

--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 play.
   --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 weeks.
   --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 the ball.
   --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.
   --DE 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.
