NFL's best and worst QBs of Week 2: Brian Hoyer scuffles

Hoyer was at his worst when trying to throw the ball downfield, so it isn't surprising his 3.67 yards per pass attempt versus Seattle is the lowest single-game total so far this season.

For fans of 0-2 teams already looking toward 2018: the Jets are the current favorites to land the No. 1 pick in next year's draft, though there are plenty of bad teams lurking behind them that have a shot.

49ers' Reid (knee) out Thu., maybe longer

The already-thin 49ers defense will miss safety Eric Reid Thursday against the Rams -- and likely longer. Reid suffered a knee injury over the weekend.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says S Eric Reid doesn't need surgery on his injured left knee but will definitely not play this week. Will probably a bit longer than a week. Reid is dealing with an injured PCL.

The 49ers did not practice on Monday but with short week turnaround for Thursday night, they released an approximated injury report. Here's the breakdown of what the following players would have been expected to do had there been a practice: Did not participate: LB Reuben Foster (ankle), TE George Kittle (hip), S Eric Reid (knee), S Jaquiski Tartt (neck) Limited Participation: S Jimmie Ward (hamstring)

The 49ers made a minor roster move Monday, signing OT Pace Murphy to the practice squad. Murphy takes the spot vacated by CB Asa Jackson, who was promoted to the active roster over the weekend. Worth noting: Murphy played for the Los Angeles Rams last year. The Niners meet the Rams on Thursday night. It's the second time this season the team has signed a player to its practice squad with ties to an upcoming opponent. They previously did it with LB Ben Boulware, who spent training camp time with Carolina.

Hoyer unable to push ball downfield

Brian Hoyer failed to complete a pass more than 8 yards past the line of scrimmage in Sunday's loss. The Niners signal-caller averaged 2.9 air yards on his 15 completions, and was 0-of-4 with an interception passing 10-plus yards downfield against Seattle. Hoyer is now 2-of-13 with two INTs on such passes this season. (ESPN Stats & Info)

Teams in the dreaded 0-2 hole

The road to the playoffs has already gotten much tougher for the 49ers, Bears, Bengals, Browns, Chargers, Colts, Jets and Saints. Since the postseason field expanded to 12 in 1990, just 12 percent of teams to start 0-2 have made the playoffs.

The 49ers biggest concern coming out of Sunday's 12-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks is clearly their struggle to get anything going in the passing game in the first two weeks. QB Brian Hoyer was 15-of-27 for 99 yards with an interception for a passer rating of 48.2 against the Seahawks. Afterward, he said he felt bad about his early season performance and acknowledged he has to do better if the Niners are going to breakthrough.

49ers safety Eric Reid will have an MRI on his left knee on Monday. He said he hopes to play Thursday against the Rams but will have to see how tests come back. Reid returned to game twice after suffering the injury but medical staff wouldn't let him return a third time.


Wilson's escape act helps Seahawks top 49ers 12-9

Russell Wilson avoided two potential sacks and found Paul Richardson in the front corner of the end zone for a 9-yard touchdown with 7:06 left and the Seattle Seahawks held on for an unsightly 12-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
