General News (Fri Sep 19): did not practice on Friday and is questionable to play this weekend.

Week 3: vs San Francisco 49ers

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) said he wasn't close to playing in Week 2 against the New York Giants. He described his injury as a nerve in his right shoulder that is in deep sleep. Palmer suffered the injury in Week 1 when he went down on a running play, and he's not sure when he'll be able to return. 'They said my shoulder was stretched out and I landed on the nerve, shut the nerve down,' Palmer said. 'It's just one of those things you've just go to wait and hope it wakes up. There's no, 'it needs 48 hours. It needs six days, it needs 12 days. You just don't know.' QB Drew Stanton went 14-for-29 for 167 yards in his absence, with zero TDs or interceptions thrown - he was sacked four times for -25 yards by the Giants. Larry Fitzgerald (10 targets for 6/51/0) and Michael Floyd (six for 1/19/0) were the most-targeted receivers by Stanton, but Floyd failed to do much with his chances. John Carlson (three for 2/43/0) and John Brown (four for 3/28/0) contributed some key receiving yards to the effort last week. Last year, the 49ers were ranked seventh in the NFL averaging 221 net passing yards allowed per game, with 19 passing scores handed out over 16 games. They had 18 interceptions (tied for 10th in the NFL) and 38 sacks (tied for 18th) to their credit by year's end. Tony Romo was plagued by early interceptions in the season opener, but ended the day with 23/37 for 255 net passing yards, one TD and three interceptions (with three sacks taken for -26 yards). The 49ers' defense generated turnovers, but they were also generous with passing yards Week 1. In Week 2, Jay Cutler was limited to 23/34 for 170 net yards passing, but he had four TD strikes vs. zero interceptions thrown and took just one sack for -6 yards. To date the 49ers are 12th in the NFL averaging 212.5 net passing yards allowed per contest. Their defense has been uneven in the red zone so far, as you can see. Stanton did a credible job in his first start of the 2014 season - if he is under center again this week, he's got a neutral matchup to work with.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs SD (3 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)

Housler actually ended up with more targets than Carlson, but still only caught one pass and for fewer yards. The same caveats for Carlson apply to Housler as well, but with the added bonus that Rob has a tendency to not get his head around on hot-reads as well as drop routine catches. He's frustrating to watch considering his physical potential, but somehow he stays apart of the game plan each week.
