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.

"Just because of how down we were (with the cornerback numbers) going into the game," Shanahan told reporters. "We got him off of practice squad this week with the injuries that we had. (Ken) Webster was his backup." Ahkello Witherspoon eventually replaced Allen, but much of the damage had already been done. "Ahkello, he tried to go this week," Shanahan continued, "but he was too tight to go throughout practice this week. Because of our low
