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.

The San Francisco 49ers have repeatedly stated that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for 2021. That would mean a rookie sitting behind him for at least the upcoming season, which makes sense. The 49ers are built to win now and have shown they can do so with Garoppolo at the helm. However, his durability has become a concern after missing 23 games over the past three seasons. Maybe that won't remain the plan. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that there is a "very strong" expectation around the league that San Francisco will make an effort to trade Garoppolo before or even during the draft. "Timing isn't great with 5 QBs about to go in 1st round, but Jimmy G's future there now seen as bleak," wrote La Canfora via
