The power has gone out at Candlestick Park

Dec 19, 2011 at 5:30 PM--


Just minutes before the kickoff of the San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers, the power at Candlestick Park has gone out. The stadium is completely dark and the kickoff will likely be delayed.

There was not an earthquake or any disturbance of any kind that is thought to have caused the power outage. It looked as though there was an explosion, perhaps the power transformer that preceded the outage.

The auxiliary lights are on and the fans are remaining calm.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle), and running backs Raheem Mostert (knee) and Tevin Coleman (knee) could miss time due to injuries. San Francisco was already without cornerback Richard Sherman (calf) and wide receiver Deebo Samuel (foot). It's been a rough start for the defending NFC champions, who are bringing in Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah to help offset at least some of the defensive losses. While the 49ers won their Week 2 matchup, the increase in significant injuries appears to be a factor in their drop within power
