SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The play so far this season from the San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks has been mostly what was expected.
Jimmy Garoppolo has been solid but unspectacular but once again got hurt, showing why the Niners traded three first-round picks to take Trey Lance third overall in the spring.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals will be without two starters — and probably a third — when they try to stay unbeaten Sunday in a road game against the Cleveland Browns.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Zach Allen will enjoy his postgame trip to Shake Shack after an exhausting, physical win over the San Francisco 49ers. He and the rest of the Arizona Cardinals' defense certainly deserve a burger or two.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers placed star tight end George Kittle on injured reserve Saturday with a calf injury that has been bothering him for weeks.
Kittle played through the injury last week but was unable to practice at all this week.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals are at the top of the NFL right now as the league's final remaining undefeated team.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Deebo Samuel's days of being mostly a gadget player capitalizing on shovel passes, jet sweeps and screen passes are in the past.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Injuries to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo helped derail two of the past three seasons for the San Francisco 49ers.
With rookie Trey Lance in place, the Niners should be in better shape to handle it this season if Garoppolo has to miss time with a calf injury.

Seattle's sluggish start and and rare losing streak were a thing of the past thanks to another vintage performance from their star quarterback.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The solution for the San Francisco 49ers' slow starts on offense won't be a quick change at quarterback.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Everything seemed to be going to plan down the stretch of the San Francisco 49ers' first home game with fans in more than 20 months — with just one small problem.
They left Aaron Rodgers with a little too much time for a gut-crushing comeback.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — With only seconds to play and no timeouts, Aaron Rodgers had no doubt where he'd look to drive the Green Bay Packers to a game-winning kick.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Staying on the road between East Coast games has been a successful formula for the San Francisco 49ers under coach Kyle Shanahan.
The problem has been how they played once they got back home.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The injuries at running back for the San Francisco 49ers keep piling up so much that coach Kyle Shanahan said the team could consider bringing back Frank Gore for another stint.
DETROIT (AP) — Two games into the season, Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell is still trying to find a foundation for his struggling defense.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Detroit Lions’ new coach and quarterback are off to a start that resembles the team's previous regimes.
Detroit brought in Dan Campbell to replace the fired Matt Patricia.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Nick Sirianni’s version of the “Philly Special” was futile.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have proven that they're a pretty darn good football team through two weeks.
They're also a little lucky.
That's a great combo for a 2-0 start in the NFC West, where it looked as though a lot of wins are going to be needed to win the loaded division that also includes the San Francisco 49ers (2-0), Los Angeles Rams (2-0) and Seattle Seahawks (1-1).
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers' season-opening road trip featured a few key injuries, a near fourth-quarter collapse and an ugly offensive performance.
Perhaps most importantly for the 49ers, it included two wins after they overcame a shaky start in a 17-11 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jalen Hurts dropped back in his own end zone, hit Quez Watkins in stride down the sideline and the first full house in Philadelphia in two years became unglued on the 91-yard pass play.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo wasn't thinking about Trey Lance coming into the game. He was too busy using his own legs to convert first downs.
Garoppolo threw one touchdown pass and ran in for a score, leading the San Francisco 49ers to a 17-11 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
The San Francisco 49ers placed linebacker Dre Greenlaw on injured reserve Saturday with a groin injury that will likely sideline him for at least a month.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers defense had a different feel once star edge rusher Nick Bosa returned to practice.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans was in a good mood after practice on Thursday for good reason.
The first-year play-caller has his two most dangerous edge rushers back on the field, with Nick Bosa taking part in team drills this week for the first time this summer and Dee Ford ramping up his practice time.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers lost two depth players on defense to injuries that could impact their decisions as they prepare to cut down the roster before the regular season.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — For Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, a year away from football after being part of a team for nearly his entire life was just what he needed at this point in his career.

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams will miss this week's joint practices against the San Francisco 49ers as he continues to deal with a hip flexor issue.
Williams is among the many veterans who are not expected to play in preseason games, but he could have seen plenty of action in the Thursday and Friday practices if he were healthy.
John Lynch’s football career seemed to be nearing its conclusion in 1992 when he spent the summer as a successful starting pitcher in Class A ball for the expansion Florida Marlins.
Lynch had come to Stanford as a quarterback and was converted to a part-time safety role under coach Dennis Green when he got a phone call that summer from the assistant for new Cardinal coach Bill Walsh, who had returned to Palo Alto after leading the San Francisco 49ers to three Super Bowl titles.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo is still the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, but the Trey Lance questions were inevitable.
