In the wake of the San Francisco 49ers third preseason game, there are several updates on the team's offensive line...
Martin on the Mend
"I don't want to put a time on it right now," Harbaugh said.
Martin left Sunday's game in the fourth quarter with an apparent knee injury. He was carted off of the field after receiving high-fives and pats on the back from teammates.
The USC product, whose story hasn't always been smooth, overcame an ankle injury early in training camp and had been "playing catch-up" in the words of offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

Harbaugh was asked about why Kilgore is such a great fit for the position. The 49ers coach complimented his presumptive starter before discussing Kilgore's impressive streak at the line of scrimmage.
"He's a very athletic center; he has a good combination of strength and quickness; he has a quick mind," Harbaugh said. "He has done a good job of making the calls and understanding the system. He's on a streak of not missing a call for... I can't remember the last time he missed a call. So it's been good, been very pleased, knock on wood.
"He'll continue to get those reps. He is taking care of business."
The fifth-year pro, a two-time Pro Bowler, said he wasn't overly concerned with the results.
"It hurts because you always want to be on top of your game," Iupati said. "You learn from it and move on.
"Sometimes you lose some, sometimes you win some. Mainly, it’s technique."
