49ers vs. Chiefs snap count: How much did the starters and backups play?

The San Francisco 49ers had an intriguing rotation at quarterback in Week 2 of the preseason, getting three of the four snaps with the first team offensive line. We take a look at all the comings and goings from the 49ers 15-13 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Here is a rundown of the snap count for the offense, defense and special teams.

The San Francisco 49ers second preseason game is a wrap, and the 49ers substitution pattern remains a bit different than what we frequently see across the league. I've posted the snap count below so you can get a better of who got the bulk of the snaps.

The running back position brought us some interesting numbers. Jewel Hampton led the team's entire offense with 52 snaps, finishing the game with 19 carries for 33 yards. These are the first game carries for Hampton in a 49ers uniform, who spent last season and most of the regular season on the Non-Football Injury list. He was unable to play last week due to an undisclosed injury.

Anthony Dixon once again got a lot of snaps, but it appears his snaps were almost exclusively in a blocking role. He was the team's leading rusher last week, while this week he did not have a single touch in 24 carries snaps. A week after getting 15 snaps, D.J. Harper only had four snaps.

The most intriguing point to be made about the wide receiver was pointed out by Matt Maiocco earlier this morning. A week after getting eight snaps with the first team offense, Marlon Moore had only four this week. The 49ers rotated in a lot of different players with their first string offense, but Moore joined Colin Kaepernick, Frank Gore and Vernon Davis with only one series of play.

The 49ers sat Kyle Williams once again, although this tweet makes it sound like he expects to play next week. I can't seem to draw any conclusion about Moore other than the team expects him to be a regular in the wide receiver rotation when the season starts. This strikes me as starter treatment, but what happens when Kyle Williams gets back? Are we looking at a Boldin, Williams, Moore starting trio at this point?
