49ers C Daniel Kilgore suffered a broken leg in Sunday night's loss to the Broncos.

Kilgore had played every snap this season for the Niners, earning strong grades in run blocking. Now his season is in jeopardy. UDFA rookie Dillon Farrell replaced Kilgore in the lineup Sunday night, but the Niners will try to get third-round rookie Marcus Martin (knee) back after the bye.
Oct 20 - 8:18 AM

Carlos Hyde had three carries for 15 yards in Week 7 against the Broncos.

Hyde didn't get his first carry until the third quarter. The 49ers were forced to abandon the run, with Hyde and Frank Gore combining for just 14 touches. Hyde played limited snaps and was mostly used in mop-up duty. The 49ers could look to get Hyde more involved in the second half of the season.
Oct 20 - 1:30 AM

Vernon Davis caught two passes for 21 yards in Sunday night's Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

Davis was a non-factor for the second straight week. He didn't look completely over his back injury, securing just two of his five targets. Davis will have the 49ers' Week 8 bye to get fully healthy.
Oct 20 - 1:28 AM

Anquan Boldin had seven catches for 50 yards in Week 7 against the Broncos.

With Chris Harris locking down Michael Crabtree, Boldin was targeted a team-high 10 times. He dropped a touchdown in the second quarter, and was also called for a penalty that cost the 49ers another score. Boldin remains just a low-upside WR3/4. He isn't a must-hold with the 49ers on a bye in Week 8.
Oct 20 - 1:19 AM

Stevie Johnson caught five passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

Johnson played in the majority of three-wide sets with Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. He wasn't limited by the hip injury that cost him practice time this week. Johnson's touchdown came on a four-yard strike from Colin Kaepernick in the back of the end-zone. He doesn't have a major role in the 49ers' offense, but has been productive with three touchdowns in his last four games. Johnson remains just a WR5 for fantasy purposes.
Oct 20 - 1:15 AM

Michael Crabtree was limited to four catches for 27 yards in Sunday night's Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

Crabtree was shut down by Chris Harris for most of the game. He dropped two passes in first half, and had a touchdown called back in the fourth quarter. Crabtree doesn't have a 100-yard game this season, and will need to continue to get red-zone targets. He has a 32/322/3 line through seven weeks.
Oct 20 - 1:09 AM

Frank Gore was held to 20 yards on nine carries in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

Gore was held in check by the Broncos run defense and couldn't get anything going behind an offensive line that was missing three starters. The 49ers abandoned the run in the second half, with Carlos Hyde getting the majority of work over Gore late in the game. Gore is averaging just 4.1 YPC and has one touchdown in seven games. The 49ers could look to get Hyde more involved coming out of their Week 8 bye.
Oct 20 - 12:42 AM

Colin Kaepernick completed 24-of-39 passes for 263 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in Sunday night's Week 7 loss to the Broncos.

He added 18 yards on three carries. Kaepernick failed to lead the 49ers to a scoring drive in the second half. His lone touchdown came on a four-yard pass to Stevie Johnson in the back of the end-zone. The 49ers' offensive line struggled to pass protect all game, and Kaepernick was sacked six times. Kaepernick will be a borderline QB1 option in Week 9 when the 49ers come out of their bye.
Oct 20 - 12:11 AM

49ers C Daniel Kilgore was carted off in Sunday night's Week 7 game against the Broncos with a left leg/ankle injury.

It's another blow to a 49ers offensive line that's already down RT Anthony Davis and LG Mike Iupati. Kilgore had been off to a strong start this season, grading out as a top-ten center by Pro Football Focus. UDFA Dillon Farrell has replaced him in the lineup. Third-round pick Marcus Martin (knee) could return after the 49ers' Week 8 bye.
Oct 19 - 10:40 PM

49ers LCB Tramaine Brock (toe) is active for Sunday night's Week 7 game against the Broncos.

Brock returns for the first time since going down in Week 1. Chris Culliver and DB Jimmie Ward are both inactive. The rest of the 49ers inactives are WR Quinton Patton, LB Patrick Willis, C Marcus Martin, LG Mike Iupati, and DT Tank Carradine.
Oct 19 - 7:08 PM

49ers LCB Tramaine Brock (toe) is listed as questionable for Week 7.

Brock was able to practice on a limited basis and will be a game-time decision. He's missed the last five games and could be held out through the Week 8 bye. The 49ers are hoping Brock can return this week with Jimmie Ward (questionable, quad) not expected to play against the Broncos.
Oct 18 - 2:28 PM

Stevie Johnson (hip) is probable for Week 7.

Johnson's hip injury won't be an issue for Sunday night's matchup with the Broncos. He's a WR5 for fantasy purposes.
Oct 17 - 8:33 PM

49ers ILB Patrick Willis (toe) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Rookie Chris Borland will make his first career start. LG Mike Iupati (concussion) has also been ruled out.
Oct 17 - 6:11 PM

Vernon Davis (back) is probable for Sunday night's game against the Broncos.

Davis didn't have any setbacks with his back injury, practicing in full throughout the week. He'll be a TE1 in Denver in Week 7.
Oct 17 - 5:04 PM

49ers slot CB Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) is expected to miss Week 7.

The Niners have an outside chance to get RCB Tramaine Brock (toe) back against the Broncos, but will be without their first-round pick on Sunday night. Look for usual LCB Perrish Cox to play slot corner in nickel packages against Peyton Manning & Co. Rookie Dontae Johnson would then replace Cox at LCB.
