Cam Newton 'will play' despite being listed as questionable

Cam Newton 'will play' despite being listed as questionableā€¯

The offense, however, is going to have to find a lot of ways to improve. He ended up playing one series in Carolina's four preseason games in August.

Beadles was a primary issue, giving up six quarterback pressures during the game, according to Pro Football Focus (h/t Jennifer Lee Chan of Niners Nation). Pierre Garcon is a legitimate National Football League receiver and Marquise Goodwin could really break out in Shanahan's scheme with his Olympic speed.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke to the media following the game, which was his first as a head coach. "I think that every week". The good news is that some of those things can be controlled.

It's quite possible the 49ers will see if Tomlinson is capable of better things.

The 49ers will try to turn things around this coming Sunday in Seattle against the Seahawks.

San Francisco appeared competitive in the opening stages of the game but an injury to rookie linebacker Reuben Foster seemed to suck the life out of both the team and the stadium. However, he was able to fully participate in all of training camp and the preseason. San Francisco didn't allow another touchdown in the first half but Graham Cano kicked two field goals for 39 and 36 yards giving the Panther a 13-0 lead to end the half. McCaffrey then rushed for another 5 yards before Newton threw a 40 yard pass to Russell Shepard for the touchdown. The defensive end not only registered his first sack of the season but forced a fumble on the play that was recovered by Star Lotulelei.

"You've got to account for the guy", tight end Ed Dickson said. "Calling plays and going". At times, he blocked them well. Newton faked to McCaffrey and handed off to Stewart. "He'll have more reps this week".

The defensive line welcomed back a familiar face as this was Julius Peppers' first game back with the Carolina Panthers. "We did it just like we drew it up in practice and [Stewart] made a heck of a play". We will see what Run CMC's work load will be next week.

As a whole, San Francisco's O-line wasn't particularly great in Week 1.

No two touches he had were more significant than a pair of first-down catches.

Despite those problems, Shanahan said he didn't feel overwhelmed by the adjustment to regular season mode. "That's my experience with high ankle sprains".

Well, 49ers fans, as you might expect, were not exactly thrilled by Sunday's proceedings. Their next game will be at Arizona on October 1. He was not on crutches in the locker room, but Shanahan said he will be in a walking boot.

Foster had three tackles, including one for a loss, and broke up a pass in his limited action.

"I won't decide that now, but I will all day tomorrow", Shanahan said. He got close to a pick. Armstrong replaced Foster in Sunday's game. "We knew if I could widen some of those guys in the flat, the screen would be open". "He stepped up. Came in".
