San Francisco Tuesday Tidbits

Tuesday news and notes on the San Francisco 49ers.

--K Jeff Chandler could be out of a job as early as today, as the 49ers are auditioning Brett Conway and Owen Pochman for the job. Chandler was a fourth-round draft pick of the 49ers last year.
--WR Cedrick Wilson got a lot of attention for his failure to leave time on the clock at the end of regulation when the 49ers needed a field goal for the victory, but he also had one of his best games in the pros. Wilson caught four passes for a team-high 57 yards.
--TE Jed Weaver, who was held without a catch for the 49ers in his first start, caught three balls for 35 yards against the Rams.
--RB Garrison Hearst rushed for 89 yards on 11 carries, including a 36-yarder to help set up the 49ers' game-tying touchdown. But Hearst clearly does not have the speed he once had. He was easily run down by Rams FS Aeneas Williams on his long run.
--RB Kevan Barlow showed a little versatility in Sunday's game. He carried 11 times for 45 yards and also caught three passes for 35 yards. Barlow also showed he can be used in one-back sets, as he helped the beat-up 49ers offensive line in pass protection.
--OL Kyle Kosier, who started the first two games of the regular season at right tackle in place of Scott Gragg, might be shifted to left guard to take over for Eric Heitmann this week. Kosier is considered the team's top backup at right tackle and the two guard spots.
--LT Kwame Harris, the team's top draft pick, got his first NFL start Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. He played in place of injured Derrick Deese. Harris will probably see action Sunday against the Browns, too. If he does not start, he might be used to rest Deese later in the game.
