The 49ers only injury concern is to DE Ray McDonald who suffered a hamstring injury against Cleveland and has not practiced this week.
Meanwhile the Redskins run of injuries continues with newly acquired RB Tashard Choice not playing and the availability of TE Fred Davis, S OJ Atogwe, and LT Trent Williams in serious question.
The 49ers defense should have more than few opportunities to create turnovers against Washington. John Beck has thrown three interceptions and been sacked a dozen times in his two starts Add in the continued depletion of the Redskins offense and Carlos Rogers and Co. should have a chance to come up.with a few turnovers.
Ground and Pound
Look for Frank Gore to continue his recent play against an average Washington run defense. The Redskins give up just over 120 yards per game and 4.5 per carry. Last week they gave up 120 yards to Bills RB Fred Jackson.
