No Allen or Jennings for next week’s home opener

Sep 10, 2006 at 9:12 PM--


As reported earlier, LG Larry Allen sprained his left knee and LT Jonas Jennings departed the game with a right ankle sprain. Jennings later returned to the game.

According to Roger Phillips of Inside Bay Area, neither player is expected to play in the team's home opener against the St. Louis Rams next week. Both are listed as doubtful.

Tony Wragge looks to be Allen's replacement for next week. Wragge played almost the whole game today after Allen left. Adam Snyder is Jennings' likely replacement.

TE Vernon Davis suffered a bruised hip during the game but later returned to the lineup. His injury is not believed to be serious.

Some motivation for the next time these two teams meet

CB Antrel Rolle had some interesting comments after the game. "Coming down to a Hail Mary at the end, there’s no way it should have been that close. It should have been a 40-to-nothing game. … Misdirection, a lot of trick plays, a lot of throwbacks. We knew they were going to go out and do that, because they couldn’t beat us just playing straight-up football," said Rolle.

Kyle Shanahan: 49ers playbook not changing for Trey Lance; Jauan Jennings tough to cover

Some expect the San Francisco 49ers offense to evolve with second-year quarterback Trey Lance at the helm. While that is probably true, it will not be by design. There won't be a drastic change to the playbook. Instead, Lance can extend plays and potentially get the football further down the field for some explosive plays. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Saturday's practice and was asked about the playbook. Is he considering changing it to take advantage of Lance's unique athleticism? "Not really at all," Shanahan responded. "I mean, you do the same stuff, and you just got a couple of more elements. When you have the threat of a running quarterback, that can change defenses. And when you see how that changes them, then you adjust to



How 49ers' Trey Lance reminds Ray-Ray McCloud of Josh Allen

Wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud entered the NFL in 2018 as a sixth-round pick with the Buffalo Bills. That was the same year the team made quarterback Josh Allen the No. 7 overall pick. McCloud spent two seasons with the Bills before bouncing between the Carolina Panthers, Bills, and Pittsburgh Steelers. The San Francisco 49ers signed McCloud this offseason, hoping to make the wideout their primary return man. He'll have to contribute on offense as well since head coach Kyle Shanahan values versatility. That means catching passes from second-year quarterback Trey Lance. McCloud spoke with reporters after Tuesday's practice as the 49ers prepare for their preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers. He was asked about his new quarterback and how the 22-year-old

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance played two drives during Friday's 28-21 preseason win over the Green Bay Packers. This week, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the plan for Lance was to play in Week 1 and Week 3 of the preseason schedule, skipping the August 20 game against the Minnesota Vikings. For now, that "most likely" remains the plan, Shanahan told reporters after Friday night's game. That could change based on how next week goes, though. The 49ers will hold joint practices with the Vikings at the TCO Performance Center in Eagan, Minnesota. "We'll see how it goes, but I'm a lot more into the Wednesday and Thursday practice than the game on
