Mike Iupati has experienced another good season as a run blocker, but will have his hands full with Chargers' defensive tackle Corey Liuget.
Tony Jerod-Eddie is preparing for his first start of the season. He's plenty deserving after forgoing a more lucrative opportunity in Dallas.
It's a crowded injury report for the 49ers this week, led by Frank Gore, who suffered a concussion last week against the Seahawks.

    Should San Francisco go for the gusto and target Michael Vick, or if Vick cannot play, do they go for the gusto and target Mike Kafka instead?
  • 3y
    The 49ers won a rare road game Sunday that wasn't exactly an aesthetic masterpiece. But a win is a win. And they did it with their supporting cast playing a significant role.

    Jim Harbaugh said he was prepared to dispute whether Michael Crabtree stepped out of bounds in the third quarter. But the telecast never showed a replay until it was too late.
  • 3y
    The 49ers' offense looked lost through two plus quarters, but Alex Smith, Vernon Davis, and Kendall Hunter spearheaded a comeback that lifted the 49ers to 2-1 and alone in first place in the NFC West.
  • 3y
    Jim Harbaugh has all the confidence in the world in David Akers. Why shouldn't he? Akers is a perfect seven-for-seven in FG attempt in 2011.
  • 3y
    After only catching two passes last week against Dallas, Vernon Davis expressed surprise at how little he was deployed. After speaking about it with Coach Harbaugh, Davis made his presence felt against the Bengals.
  • 3y
    The 49ers got key contributions Sunday from the backups to Frank Gore and Donte Whitner -- Reggie Smith and Kendall Hunter -- in the team's 13-8 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.
