49ers Snap Count: Week 6 at Buffalo Bills

It's time for our weekly look at the snap count totals for the San Francisco 49ers. Here are some playing time observations from the team's Week 6 road loss against the Buffalo Bills. Below is a list of reps for each player, broken down by phase of the game.



  • Joshua Garnett received his first career start and played all 61 offensive snaps at right guard. The rest of the starting o-line remained the same as Joe Staley, Zane Beadles, Daniel Kilgore and Trent Brown also never left the field.
  • Jeremy Kerley's 57 reps led San Francisco's wide receivers. Quinton Patton played 55 and Torrey Smith played 51.
  • A shoulder injury to Pierre Garçon (32 snaps) gave Mike Davis (24 snaps) his most playing time of the season. Chip Kelly said that Davis had a strong week of practice and earned time as the team's No. 2 running back.
  • Garrett Celek returned to the lineup after missing two games with a hip injury and received 30 reps.
  • The 49ers also got DeForest Buckner back after the rookie defensive lineman missed one game with a foot injury. Despite entering the game as questionable, Buckner didn't appear to be on a pitch count. The first-round pick led San Francisco's defensive linemen with 73 snaps. Arik Armstead was next with 64 reps.
  • Nick Bellore, Eric Reid, Tramaine Brock and Antoine Bethea played all 79 defensive snaps.
  • Quinton Dial started at nose tackle and played 37 total snaps. Mike Purcell was on the field for 13 reps.
  • Shayne Skov, Marcus Cromartie, Keshawn Martin, Andrew Tiller and JaCorey Shepherd all played solely on special teams.
