Gameday: Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers

Sep 22, 2013 at 12:00 AM--




This afternoon, the 49ers will host the Indianapolis Colts at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. The two teams have not faced each other since November of 2009 when the Colts beat the 49ers 18-14 in Indianapolis.

The Colts made headlines this week with a blockbuster trade that sent Browns running back Trent Richardson to Indianapolis for the Colts' 2014 first-round pick. Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said Thursday that Richardson will play against the 49ers. When asked how much he would play, Pagano said "As much as he can handle."


One 49ers player also made headlines this week. Star linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence and marijuana possession. Smith had also been arrested for DUI in Miami Beach on Jan. 28, 2012. On June 30, 2012, he suffered stab wounds at a party at his house outside San Jose. 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said that Smith will play today against the Colts. Smith has 3.5 sacks this season.

The matchup between the 49ers and Colts is a reunion for Jim Harbaugh and his former Stanford star quarterback Andrew Luck. This will be the first time the 49ers coaching staff has faced Luck in the NFL. Luck was drafted with the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Another potential matchup could happen between brothers. Vernon Davis, who is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury, may not play in the game. However, if he does, his younger brother will be on the opposing defense. Vontae Davis plays cornerback for the Colts.

Last week, the 49ers (1-1) were beat 29-3 by the Seattle Seahawks. The Colts (1-1) were beat 24-20 by the Miami Dolphins.

For the 49ers, RB LaMichael James (knee), TE Vernon Davis (hamstring), DT Ray McDonald (ankles) and S Eric Reid (concussion) are listed as questionable. DT Justin Smith (shoulder), LB NaVorro Bowman (wrist), LB Aldon Smith (back), G Mike Iupati (shoulder) and QB Colin Kaepernick (foot) are listed as probable.

For the Colts, TE Dwayne Allen (hip) was placed on IR. S LaRon Landry (ankle) is out. LB Pat Angerer (knee) is listed as doubtful. S Antoine Bethea (toe) and C Samson Satele (elbow) are listed as questionable. WR T.Y. Hilton (groin), WR David Reed (quadricep), LB Kavell Conner (ankle), WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (ribs) and WR Reggie Wayne (shoulder) are listed as probable.

49ers stock plummets in Week 5 NFL Power Rankings

The analysts who were clamoring for backup quarterback Trey Lance no longer believe the 49ers are a playoff-caliber team. When San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans was exposed in Week 3, the young coordinator's incompetence was far from a hot topic of conversation amongst members of the national sports media -- if it was even discussed at all. After months of fawning over rookie quarterback Trey Lance, the media finally got its wish in Week 4, as the latest future of the 49ers' franchise played the entire second half of the Niners' loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The rookie certainly looked the part during the team's defeat, simply proving what was obvious all along: He's not ready; but who expected him to be? Although analysts
