Welcome back to more San Francisco 49ers football! The team is in Pittsburgh to face the Steelers, with the game kicking off at 10 a.m. PT. This marks the first of five early road games this season, and will give us a little bit more insight into this 49ers squad. The team surprised some folks with their Week 1 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Beating the Steelers on the road would likely get more people changing their minds about this team.
The big changes this week involve Bruce Ellington and Reggie Bush listed as inactive. Bush injured his calf in Week 1, and Ellington injured his ankle at some point over the last week. Mike Davis and DeAndrew White are both active for the first time this season. Davis is almost a lock to get some work alongside Jarryd Hayne in spelling Carlos Hyde. White could get some return work, depending on how the team wants to handle their kick and punt returners.
We'll have a few threads throughout the course of the game, and a recap immediately after. One thing I have added to the threads this year is the 49ers media Twitter list. If you cannot watch the game, you can follow some of the updates in there.
We'll have plenty to break down after the game, but for now, here's your first quarter game thread. Along with it is a rundown of pertinent information related to the game.
