49ers-Rams final score
The 49ers dropped to 1-6 with an ugly 39-10 loss in Week 7. The 49ers turned the ball over four times, and when you do that and don’t get any takeaways of your own, things won’t go well. Add in this happening against the Rams, and Aaron Donald getting four sacks, and a beatdown is a given. Aside from a surge from George Kittle in the second quarter, nothing went right for the 49ers, and this game went about how many expected. The 49ers face the Arizona Cardinals in Week 8.
Adrian Colbert injury
Free safety Adrian Colbert suffered a leg injury early in the third quarter and was taken off on the training staff’s medical cart. The team has announced he is questionable to return, but it’s unlikely we see him back in Week 7.
Fooch’s update: It sounds like he’s OK!
49ers get on the board
It has not been a pretty game, but the 49ers got on the board with a big close to the second quarter by George Kittle. He had three receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown, including this physical display. The 49ers trail 22-7 in the second quarter.
49ers struggling early
The Rams have taken a 15-0 lead thanks to a pair of turnovers and a blocked punt. The 49ers are on pace for the worst turnover differential in NFL history, and would have three turnovers today if the blocked punt had not rolled out of the back of the end zone. It resulted in a safety instead of Rams touchdown. It’s a disastrous day thus far for the 49ers.
Early Matt Breida injury
After a two-yard run, Matt Breida had to leave the game after an ankle injury. Michael Brockers landed on his ankle after the play and Breida was clearly in pain. He was able to walk off the field, but had a limp and had to get his ankle taped up. Alfred Morris took his place, with Raheem Mostert getting some work as well. The 49ers have declared Breida questionable to return.
Fooch’s update: Breida’s back
The 49ers and Rams released their inactives for Week 7, and San Francisco could be in trouble. Richard Sherman suffered a setback on his calf and will not play. He and Jimmie Ward are both inactive, which means Ahkello Witherspoon and Greg Mabin will start. Rookie Tarvarius Moore could get some playing time as well.
49ers inactives: WR Dante Pettis, CB Jimmie Ward, CB Richard Sherman, OG Joshua Garnett, DL Jullian Taylor, OL Shon Coleman, DL D.J. Jones
Rams inactives: WR Cooper Kupp, DB Darious Williams, RB Justin Davis, RB John Kelly, C Brian Allen, DT Sebastian Joseph-Day, DT Tanzel Smart
The San Francisco 49ers are getting ready to take on not just one of the NFC’s best, but the NFL’s in the Los Angeles Rams. This being a divisional matchup makes the stakes in this game even higher. The 49ers have not had a win since Week 2, and came close against the Green Bay Packers last week on Monday Night Football. The Rams have not lost a game yet due to a devastating offense and a dominating defense. Who knows what’s going to happen? This will be an afternoon game kicking off at 1:25 PM. The game will air on CBS and you can see who gets it by looking at our broadcast map. Kevin Harlan, Rich Gannon, and Steve Tasker will be calling the game.
The 49ers-Rams game was one many fans were looking forward to, mostly thanks to the rivalry between 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and Rams head coach Sean McVay. Unfortunately, expectations have been lowered since Jimmy Garoppolo tore his ACL in the 49ers Week 3 away game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Now the 49ers are playing for pride with C.J. Beathard and the Rams are trying to further tighten their grip on the division.
For Week 7, the Rams will be without wide receiver Cooper Kupp. McVay has indicated everyone but Kupp should be good for Sunday.
The 49ers meanwhile will be without wide receiver Dante Pettis. Cornerback Jimmie Ward is also listed as doubtful after a hamstring injury against the Packers.
