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 9 home loss against the Arizona Cardinals. Below is a list of reps for each player, broken down by phase of the game.
(Not pictured: Darrell Williams Jr. - 2 special teams snaps)
- Reuben Foster returned to the lineup after missing one game with a rib injury and played 75-of-77 defensive snaps. He gave everyone a brief scare when he went down with an ankle injury in the second half. Foster returned shortly thereafter. The rookie linebacker recorded a game-high 14 total tackles.
- Ronald Blair III made his 2017 debut and played 39 snaps. He'd been on Injured Reserve since the start of the season with a thumb injury. The 49ers can still bring back one more player from Injured Reserve as long as they were on the roster at the beginning of the season. Garrett Celek is a prime candidate.
- Kendrick Bourne played a career-high 40 snaps and made his first two career receptions for a total of 39 yards.
- Adrian Colbert replaced the injured Jaquiski Tartt and played 62 snaps. He figures to be the 49ers starting free safety from here on out.
- Eric Reid, Dontae Johnson and Ahkello Witherspoon played all 77 defensive snaps.
- Daniel Kilgore left the game for one play and was replaced at center by Zane Beadles.
- Dexter McCoil got his first snaps of the season on defense, getting eight reps against the Cardinals.
- Brock Coyle played 64 snaps next to Foster. Ray-Ray Armstrong saw only one snap on defense.
- Erik Magnuson made his first-career start at right tackle as Trent Brown started at left tackle in place of the injured Joe Staley. Both played all 74 snaps.
