Aug 23, 2015 at 8:48 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers beat the Dallas Cowboys 23-6 in their exhibition home opener on Sunday night at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Running back Jarryd Hayne added another 54 yards rushing to his preseason resume. He also had three punt returns for 84 total yards. The defense looked solid with four sacks and three interceptions.

The 49ers' 303-pound defensive lineman Mike Purcell picked off a Dustin Vaughan pass and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown.

The 49ers' other touchdown came when Quinton Patton blocked a fourth-quarter punt and grabbed the ball in the end zone for the score.

NaVorro Bowman, who played in a football game for the first time in 581 days, ended the night with three tackles.

Here are the recaps from numerous 49ers beat writers. More will be added to the list as they come in.

49ers-Lions: Shanahan talks RB Trey Sermon's status; RB Elijah Mitchell recaps his NFL debut

By Kirk Larrabee

Elijah Mitchell finishing the day with over 100 rushing yards while Raheem Mostert and Trey Sermon watched from the sidelines was probably not the result anyone expected at running back for the San Francisco 49ers in their 41-33 Week 1 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. But that's exactly how things transpired after the third-round pick Sermon was an unexpected healthy scratch and Mostert left the game early due to a knee injury. Mitchell, who was selected in Round 6 of the 2021 NFL Draft out of the University of Louisiana, finished the day with 19 carries for 104 yards, with one of those carries going for a 38-yard touchdown. Mitchell was impressive for the 49ers during training camp and the preseason when he was healthy, so his success when given the



49ers place Jalen Hurd on IR, activate Dontae Johnson ahead of Lions game

The San Francisco 49ers have placed Jalen Hurd on injured reserve. The third-year wide receiver is attempting to return from the ACL injury he suffered before the start of last season. While he appeared in one preseason game this year—an August 29 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders—he has yet to appear in a regular-season matchup. Being on injured reserve means Hurd will have to miss at least three games. That will make him eligible to return for Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers also activated cornerback Dontae Johnson from the practice squad to make him available for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. That could mean that starting cornerback Emmanuel Moseley (knee) is unlikely to be available. He was listed as "doubtful" on the



Steve Young says 49ers' late game fade in Detroit may be "a sign of immaturity"

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, and current ESPN analyst, Steve Young spoke on KNBR Radio on Wednesday, as he does each week during the NFL season. Among the other things he discussed on the Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks Show, which included labeling the 49ers quarterback situation as "fraught with terror," considering how it plays out, was how the 49ers finished the game against the Detroit Lions last Sunday. Specifically, how they went from having such a huge lead to almost losing that lead. Much has been discussed on this topic already, and debates have been held around the question of whether coach



16 nerve-wracking 49ers post-game observations

By Marc Adams

Everyone ok? I'm just checking to make sure. The San Francisco 49ers won another game in the final couple of minutes, testing the blood pressure of fans everywhere. This time the win came against the Philadelphia Eagles, after a tough, close, physical game. Bay Area cardiologists have been busy these first couple of weeks since the 2021 NFL season began. The final score was 17-11, but it was much closer than that, and early on, it didn't look good for the 49ers. Here are my nerve-wracking post-game observations from the 49ers week two win: Despite looking putrid, at times, the 49ers offense still performed well. Jimmy Garoppolo was bad, good, bad and good. That throw to Deebo Samuel to set up the first touchdown was
