Gameday: San Francisco 49ers at St. Louis Rams

Sep 26, 2013 at 12:00 AM--




Tonight, the 49ers will travel to St. Louis to face the Rams at the Edward Jones Dome. The two teams last met in December of 2012 when the Rams upset the 49ers with a 16-13 overtime victory in St. Louis. The all-time series is tied at 62 games for each team. Last season, the Rams were the only NFC West team that the 49ers were unable to beat at least once. Their November matchup at Candlestick Park ended in a tie.

After two consecutive poorly played games, the 49ers are looking to rebound and get their season back on track with a win against the Rams. The 49ers' last victory came during a week one victory at home against the Green Bay Packers. The Rams have also lost two consecutive games after a week one win over the Arizona Cardinals.


The 49ers will be without linebacker Aldon Smith, their best pass rusher. Smith checked into rehab this week following his arrest for a DUI on Friday morning. It is not yet known how long the 49ers will have to play without Smith. The team placed him on the non-football injury list.

After a week one quarterback rating of 129.4, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had a 20.1 rating against the Seahawks and then a 49.9 rating against the Colts. He threw 4 interceptions and no touchdowns in his last two games.

Last week, the 49ers (1-2) were defeated 27-7 by the Indianapolis Colts. The Rams (1-2) were defeated 31-7 by the Dallas Cowboys.

For the 49ers, T Anthony Davis (shoulder), TE Vernon Davis (hamstring), S Raymond Ventrone (concussion), WR Kyle Williams (rib, knee), and LB Patrick Willis (groin) are listed as questionable. LB Navorro Bowman (wrist), C Jonathan Goodwin (elbow), RB Frank Gore (knee), G Mike Iupati (shoulder), DT Ray McDonald (ankle, ankle), CB Carlos Rogers (knee), and DT Justin Smith (shoulder) are listed as probable.

For the Rams, DE William Hayes (knee) and T Rodger Saffold (knee) are out. T Joe Barksdale (not injury related), WR Chris Givens (knee), LB James Laurinaitis (foot), T Jake Long (foot), S T.J. McDonald (knee), TE Mike McNeill (chest), RB Daryl Richardson (foot), and G Chris Williams (foot) are listed as probable.

49ers-Eagles: Goal line stand turns the tide after shaky 49ers start

If there was one significant turning point in the San Francisco 49ers' 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was most likely the unexpected goal line stand members of the defense produced after a 91-yard pass put their backs against the wall in the second quarter. Down 3-0 to the Eagles with just over seven minutes remaining in the half, the 49ers had a long field behind them after a punt from Mitch Wishnowsky pinned the Eagles at their own three-yard line. But on the first play after the punt, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went deep for wide receiver Quez Watkins, who went for 91 yards before being brought down by safety Jaquiski Tartt and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at the 49ers' six-yard line. A pass interference call on cornerback Josh Norman two plays



49ers protect 3 from the practice squad, re-sign CB Dontae Johnson, cut LB Elijah Sullivan

The San Francisco 49ers announced three practice squad players being protected this week as the team prepares for its Week 1 matchup against the Detroit Lions. They are wide receiver Travis Benjamin, quarterback Nate Sudfeld, and cornerback Dee Virgin. Benjamin could provide the 49ers with some punt return flexibility heading into Sunday's game. Sudfeld could be insurance in case rookie Trey Lance is unavailable. Lance suffered a chipped bone in the index finger of his throwing hand during San Francisco's preseason finale. Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is dealing with a hamstring injury, which might explain the decision to protect Virgin. NFL teams can protect up to four practice squad players per week from being signed by other teams. In addition, teams can
