--QB Jeff Blake played the entire game despite a sore left heel. Blake has been efficient and he deserves a lot of credit for helping to develop rookie receivers Anquan Boldin and Bryant Johnson.
OG Leonard Davis
missed the game with a sore right foot that's been bothering him since the
season opener. His backup, Chris Dishman, played well, but Davis is the team's
best offensive lineman and he's missed. The injury is worrisome because the
exact cause hasn't been determined.
--WR Bryant Johnson, after a
slow start in training camp, is beginning to blossom. He led the team with six
receptions and 86 yards last week. He's starting in place of the injured Bryan Gilmore, who should be able to play this week. But don't look for Gilmore to
return to the starting lineup.
--WR Anquan Boldin might be the
league's most productive rookie. Boldin set an NFL record for number of
receptions and receiving yards for someone in his first three NFL games. He's
fearless and he's made several acrobatic catches already.
Emmitt Smith hasn't produced sterling numbers but Smith has shown that he's not
done at 34. He showed good agility and great vision in the Green Bay game. He
gained just 50 yards on 20 attempts but several of his better runs were called
back because of holding penalties.
