Team pencils in Lawson at right outside linebacker

May 16, 2006 at 12:28 PM--


Dennis Georgatos, writing for the Sporting News, reports San Francisco 49ers rookie LB Manny Lawson is being penciled in as the right outside linebacker to fill the role left vacant by LB Julian Peterson's departure to Seattle. His speed, strength and arm reach make him a formidable edge rusher on passing downs, though he'll be matched up most of the time against the league's elite pass blockers at left tackle.

"It held up," Jimmy Garoppolo said of his injured right thumb after the San Francisco 49ers' 23-17 playoff victory over the Dallas Cowboys. "Pretty much the same as last week. I mean, it's a day-to-day fight." The torn ligament and chipped bone in Garoppolo's thumb may have contributed to the quarterback's costly fourth-quarter interception. Garoppolo was targeting wide receiver Trent Sherfield, but the football ended up in the hands of Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown. "I didn't grip it the right way," Garoppolo later told NBC Sports' Peter King. "Not trying to make excuses, but things happen like that. Really not too much more to it than

Two San Francisco 49ers players were named to their first NFL All-Pro team. One is third-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel, one of the most dynamic players in the game. The second is the team's nine-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle, Trent Williams. Both were first-team selections. Until now, Williams, a first-round draft pick in 2010, has gone his entire career without being named to an All-Pro team, which may be difficult to believe. On Thursday, a reporter asked the veteran tackle what it would mean to finally be named an All-Pro. "I think it would feel good, finally," Williams responded. "It sucks because I can't let it define my career because I've never made it. If I felt like that's what I needed to define my career, then anything I've done up to

When the 49ers clash with the Cowboys on Sunday, it should be a barroom brawl any frontiersman could tip his hat to. The 49ers have the talent and the passion to produce a win on Sunday. Still, many questions remain: Will Trent Williams really be able to play? Will Jimmy Garoppolo plow through the game with an injured thumb again this week? Will the 49ers shed their tendency toward injury for just long enough to broach a deep run into the playoffs, starting with a win over the Cowboys? Although these are all great questions, here's an even better one: Which 49ers team will show up to duke it out against a hot Cowboys team? There's a right answer to this question and, of course, a
