The San Francisco 49ers dominated Washington on Monday, and it gave them a chance to get some additional playing time for reserves. The most notable reserve to appear has to be guard Joe Looney. He did not make a huge impact, but his three snaps marked his NFL debut. Mike Iupati was inactive following last week's knee injury, which got Looney up and playing.

Nick Moody was active as well, returning for the first time since his Week 1 hand injury. He finished the game with eight special teams snaps. He will continue to get special teams snaps, likely increasing each week. In Week 1, he played 23 snaps (good for 68 percent of the special teams total). Monday he played in 31 percent of the snaps.

With Ray McDonald sidelined once again, the team used plenty of rotation at defensive line. Tony Jerod-Eddie got the start and played 70 percent of total defensive snaps. Demarcus Dobbs also saw action, playing in 45 percent of total defensive snaps. This provides the 49ers some great depth when Ray McDonald returns to the starting lineup.

Tight end Derek Carrier finished the game with only nine snaps. The 49ers mixed things up with their formations, but odds would seem good that Carrier is the guy who gets released when the team activates Michael Crabtree. Part of that will depend on how Garrett Celek's hamstring is coming along, but my guess is Carrier is currently at the top of the list.
