49ers-Texans recap: Snap count for first preseason game

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers first preseason game saw some expected players getting a lot of snaps, but also some surprises. Here's the full snap count.

The San Francisco 49ers are through their first preseason game, and we’ve got our first snap count. I’ve posted a table below, and you can view the full gamebook here. Prior to the game, the team announced that QB Colin Kaepernick, WR Eric Rogers (eventually going on IR), WR DeAndre Smelter, S L.J. McCray, S Eric Reid, DL Glenn Dorsey, and DL Arik Armstead would not play. They were joined by cornerback Will Redmond who worked out prior to the game, but then did not get any snaps.

Thad Lewis led the way on offense with 38 snaps, serving as Blaine Gabbert’s backup quarterback. Jeff Driskel came on to close out the game. Lewis went to the locker room with a lower leg injury, and was listed as questionable to return. If Colin Kaepernick is able to play this week against the Denver Broncos, I’m curious to see how the snaps are split.

Marcus Cromartie led the defense with 52 snaps, which accounted for 75 percent of defensive snaps. He played safety, but we saw several members of the secondary get some work at both cornerback and safety. Dontae Johnson was the most note-worthy of that group, playing in 32 total snaps. Johnson also led the team with 15 special teams snaps.

NaVorro Bowman played into the second quarter, finishing with 18 snaps. Michael Wilhoite, finished with the most snaps among the trio competing for the role next to Bowman, but Nick Bellore had the most snaps among the inside linebackers. Bellore put together a strong game, with a sack and two tackles for a loss.
