EDITOR'S NOTE: 49ers Insider Matt Maiocco is reporting live from the Candlestick Park press box. You can follow along here.

1:57 PM
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.
1:51 PM
Seahawks injury report: FB Michael Robinson (ankle) is doubtful to return.
1:50 PM
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.
1:46 PM
49ers are getting some pressure on Tarvaris Jackson. Justin Smith & Ray McDonald now have sacks. They worked out a lot together this summer.
1:41 PM
The ruling on the field stands. Harbaugh's first challenge fails.
1:38 PM
Harbaugh throws challenge flag, saying that bouncing punt hit the Seahawks return man. Replay seemed to show it didn't, but we'll see.
1:36 PM
Boos for the 49ers already, as Gore gets call on draw on third-and-7. And 49ers will punt.
1:35 PM
On the second play, Michael Crabtree comes onto the field.
1:34 PM
Joshua Morgan and Braylon Edwards are 49ers' starting receivers.
1:33 PM
On third downs, 49ers replace Madieu Williams, Parys Haralson and Isaac Sopoaga with Tramaine Brock, Aldon Smith and Reggie Smith.
1:32 PM
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.
1:30 PM
Going back to coin toss, yes, it looked as if Gore was indicating the 49ers wanted the ball. Ref Jeff Triplette announced 49ers deferred.
1:26 PM
But 49ers defense goes back on the field because Tavares Gooden roughs the kicker and it's a Seattle first down.
1:25 PM
Good pressure from Ray McDonald and tackle by Tarell Brown to force Seahawks punt.
1:24 PM
Aldon Smith, Reggie Smith and Tramaine Brock enter on third down.
1:15 PM
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.
