Interesting that Alex Smith would be used as a lead blocker on a misdirection pitch. But he helped Gore gain 12 yards. Quarter ends: 0-0.
Seahawks injury report: FB Michael Robinson (ankle) is doubtful to return.
On first two drives, 49ers had 3rd-and-7 and 3rd-and-3. They had failed run plays both times. But Lee's had two good punts, avging 63 yards.
49ers are getting some pressure on Tarvaris Jackson. Justin Smith & Ray McDonald now have sacks. They worked out a lot together this summer.
The ruling on the field stands. Harbaugh's first challenge fails.
Harbaugh throws challenge flag, saying that bouncing punt hit the Seahawks return man. Replay seemed to show it didn't, but we'll see.
Boos for the 49ers already, as Gore gets call on draw on third-and-7. And 49ers will punt.
On the second play, Michael Crabtree comes onto the field.
Joshua Morgan and Braylon Edwards are 49ers' starting receivers.
On third downs, 49ers replace Madieu Williams, Parys Haralson and Isaac Sopoaga with Tramaine Brock, Aldon Smith and Reggie Smith.
Ray McDonald just topped his sack total for all of last year throwing Jackson for 2-yard sack on third down. Seahawks punt. 49ers take over.
Going back to coin toss, yes, it looked as if Gore was indicating the 49ers wanted the ball. Ref Jeff Triplette announced 49ers deferred.
But 49ers defense goes back on the field because Tavares Gooden roughs the kicker and it's a Seattle first down.
Good pressure from Ray McDonald and tackle by Tarell Brown to force Seahawks punt.
Aldon Smith, Reggie Smith and Tramaine Brock enter on third down.
Many of the Seahawks were joining the military personnel holding the 100-yard long American flag on their side of the field.1:15 PM
49ers captains, Frank Gore and Patrick Willis, at midfield for coin toss. Seattle won toss, 49ers defer to second half. Seattle receives KO.
