49ers safety Adrian Colbert and D-lineman Damontre Moore leave Broncos game due to injuries

San Francisco 49ers safety Adrian Colbert is forced to exit early in his second consecutive game.


A week after being ejected from the San Francisco 49ers' first preseason game, safety Adrian Colbert's first-half hamstring strain will keep him out for the remainder of the Niners' Monday Night Football matchup with the Denver Broncos. 49ers defensive lineman Damontre Moore will also miss the rest of the game after injuring his thumb.


Meanwhile, fellow safety Tarvarius Moore, who is competing against Colbert for the 49ers' starting free safety job while defensive back Jimmie Ward recovers from injury, has continued to play into the second half of the contest. Moore was briefly forced to leave the field after being shaken up in the third quarter, but quickly returned to action.

Moore's strong preseason play, combined with Colbert's failure to stay on the field, has given the defensive back a leg up in the competition for the team's starting role. Moore played safety in college, and after attempting to convert to cornerback last season, has moved back to his natural position in San Francisco's secondary.

The 49ers' sixth-round draft pick, cornerback Tim Harris Jr., also left the game in the second half due to a groin injury, and is questionable to return:

The San Francisco 49ers aren't anywhere near where they want to be five games into the regular season, but they're also not exactly down on themselves either as their bye week gets underway. The 49ers fell 17-10 to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, which marked their third consecutive loss after opening the season with wins over the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles.

The San Francisco 49ers started 2-0 but have since lost three consecutive games. No one inside the organization is panicking, though. Instead, the focus remains on one game at a time. That means looking toward the Indianapolis Colts, not backward at the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, and Arizona Cardinals. At 2-3, San Francisco sits in last place within the NFC West. However, general manager John Lynch is confident he and head coach Kyle Shanahan have built a roster that can rebound. The 49ers are in their bye week, and a lot of football remains in this 17-game season. "I'm fully confident [the pieces are in place to turn things around] because of the people in our room and the character of the people in our room, because of the people we have in leadership
