San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has struggled with his rushing game much more this year than he did during his breakout 2012 season, but he’s finding lanes on the field Sunday against the Titans. Kaepernick rushed for a touchdown for the first time this season and has run for 56 yards so far against Tennessee with the game midway through the third quarter.
Kaepernick had run for just 63 yards in his last four games combined, but seems well on his way to surpassing that total in Week 7 alone with more than a quarter left to go. It might just depend on how much head coach Jim Harbaugh wants to put his franchise quarterback in jeopardy as San Francisco Cheap Jerseys Rugby is up by more than three touchdowns on the road.
In addition to the ground game, Kaepernick is 11-of-13 for 163 yards and no interceptions. Frank Gore has scored two touchdowns of his own.
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster left Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs with a hamstring injury. He has been ruled out for the day.
Foster went into the locker room early in the game after the Texans’ opening drive. He was listed on the injury report as probable with a hamstring issue, suggesting that he aggravated the injury. Foster is known for always being banged up and playing through minor injuries, but wasn’t able to stay in the game this time. Ben Tate will be the primary running back, with Cierre Wood backing him up.
Foster’s loss will be a big blow to a Texans offense struggling to find any rhythm. Houston was hoping to lean on the running game while breaking in Case Keenum, who is making his NFL debut against a tough Chiefs defense. With Foster out, though, the Texans may have to rely on Keenum’s Cheap Jerseys Online Wholesale arm more than they wanted to.
