The San Francisco 49ers dealt with several injuries in their Week 13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and it led to some changes in the weekly snap count. The injuries did not seem overly severe, but the 49ers depth got some work throughout the game.
The most notable injury was probably Ray McDonald's first quarter finger injury. He made a return at one point, but saw limited time after the injury. McDonald finished the game with 21 defensive snaps, and his absence resulted in Tank Carradine getting a career high 28 snaps. Tony Jerod-Eddie ended up with the most defensive line snaps, with Justin Smith right behind him.
Ahmad Brooks remained the starting outside linebacker opposite Aldon Smith, finishing with 42 defensive snaps (65 percent). It was kind of an odd mix behind them, with Dan Skuta getting 19 defensive snaps, and Aaron Lynch finishing with 17 snaps. At some point I would think Aaron Lynch will get more playing time even with everybody healthy. He had a very strong game on Thursday, getting a sack and four tackles, and generally running rough-shod over the Seahawks offensive line.
On the offensive side of the ball, Michael Crabtree left for one series when he suffered an injury in the first quarter. It looked like a knee injury, was later announced as a rib injury, and finally ended up being mentioned as both a rib AND knee injury. Crabtree said it was an ab thing, and he was taped up for it. Behind Crabtree and Anquan Boldin, Stevie Johnson got 33 snaps, and Brandon Lloyd got 30 snaps.
