The folks at the NFL were slightly delayed in getting snap count information together, but here we have it! Below you can check out a table of the 49ers snap count numbers against the Arizona Cardinals.

The most noticeable snap total has to belong to defensive tackle Ray McDonald. He played 38 snaps, which was 58 percent of the defensive total. In comparison, Justin Smith played 57 snaps, or 86 percent of the total. The 49ers worked in Tony Jerod-Eddie (23 snaps) and Demarcus Dobbs (27 snaps). TJE got a lot of his work at nose tackle, although Dobbs got a little nose tackle work as well when TJE missed some snaps with some cramping.

This just underscores the depth concerns on the defensive line. The 49ers have some options coming in the form of Tank Carradine and Quinton Dial. While they are likely to start practicing this week, it could be at least a week or two before they are ready for game action. We'll see if the 49ers push them along at all.

On the offensive side of the ball, Kyle Williams continues to be the primary No. 2 receiver opposite Anquan Boldin. Williams finished the game with 40 snaps (57 percent), with Jon Baldwin the next wide receiver at 18 snaps (26 percent). Marlon Moore got seven snaps, while Kassim Osgood had one snap.
