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 NFL announced that San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week following the team's 27-24 road victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan kept saying "Wednesday" when he meant "Tuesday" while mentioning the San Francisco 49ers' first practice of the week. That's because Tuesday will feel like the team's typical Wednesday, with some slight adjustments. Shanahan's team is coming off an exhausting playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys. Now, they have a short week to prepare for their next playoff opponent—the Green Bay Packers. That preparation will kick off with a Tuesday evening practice in Santa Clara. Why the late 5:00 p.m. PT start? "Yeah, everything's moved up one day," Shanahan explained on Monday while speaking with reporters on a conference call. "We're going to start a little bit later tomorrow (Tuesday). Just kind of to give us the morning, so we don't have

Jimmy Garoppolo hopes to be on the field when his San Francisco 49ers face the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. The quarterback isn't just dealing with the torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb suffered in Week 16. He sustained a right shoulder sprain in Sunday's Wild Card win against the Dallas Cowboys. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo will be limited in Tuesday's practice. Before heading out to the practice field, the quarterback spoke with reporters and was asked how confident he would play on Saturday. "We'll feel it out throughout the week," Garoppolo responded. "But yeah,
