Big Wednesday for fate of the 49ers’ season

Oct 24, 2007 at 6:58 AM--


While Nancy Gay of the San Francisco Chronicle and Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat have reported 49ers running back Frank Gore insisting that he will be ready for the Saints come Sunday, we will know more about Alex Smith later today. Today will be the team's first practice in preparation for the Saints and the team will be able to better judge whether the quarterback, who was injured on September 30th against the Seahawks and has not played since, has healed enough to allow him to start a game.

Gore turned his right ankle in Sunday's game against the Giants. On Monday, he insisted that he was fine and will have no problem playing against the Saints.

The 49ers are 2-4, have lost four in a row, are sitting in third place in the NFC West and have three more games against division opponents.

Injuries can sometimes lead to opportunities in the NFL, and when those opportunities arise, it's important for the players who get their chance to make the most of it. One of the biggest examples of that this season for the San Francisco 49ers has been third-year linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair, who has been shining recently in a starting role after taking over for the injured Dre Greenlaw. Greenlaw has been injured for most of the season after suffering a groin injury against the Detroit Lions in Week 1. Al-Shaair has stepped in and been a standout at times, in particular during the 49ers' 34-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Al-Shaair had eight tackles, an interception and a fumble recovery in the game, which also saw Greenlaw's return from

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell continues to impress with surprisingly productive rookie season

San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell continued the highly impressive rookie season that nobody saw coming on Sunday, rushing for 133 yards and one touchdown on 27 carries in his team's thrilling 34-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings. It was the fourth 100-yard game of the season for Mitchell, and making it more impressive is the fact he did it less than two weeks after having surgery for a fractured finger (November 16). It's the latest chapter in a performance that has made Mitchell the best rookie on the 49ers roster, which is something nobody could have predicted from the University of Louisiana product when they made him their final selection in the 2021 NFL Draft at pick 194 overall in Round 6. The selection of Mitchell was actually a bit of a

Carlos Dunlap's hand may have been all that stopped the San Francisco 49ers from scoring on their final play during their 30-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The 49ers had the ball on a 4th-and-Goal with seconds to play when quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spotted wide receiver Trent Sherfield open near the end zone. Garoppolo threw the ball in Sherfield's direction, only to have it batted away by the 6-7 defensive end Dunlap. With the game on the line, the Seahawks defense came up HUGE 💪📺 Re-watch the game »
