All-Pro left tackle Trent Williams injured his ankle last week against the Broncos. He is out 4-6 weeks with a high-ankle sprain.

Colton McKivitz made his fifth career start Monday night, replacing Williams, but the second-year player didn’t make it through the game.

The 49ers announced in the third quarter that Williams is out with a knee injury.

That leaves Jaylon Moore to play at left tackle. Moore struggled in the seven snaps he played last week against the Broncos.

The Rams have added a field goal in the third quarter, drawing them within 14-9 of the 49ers headed to the fourth quarter.

  1. Losing Williams is big but now that his backup is out too this could be critical. Hopefully, Moore will improve with additional playing time but he was apparently bad enough last week to get the hook after only seven plays. If he doesn’t improve soon they may need to scheme help for him, but that obviously reduces play calling flexibility.
    Thankfully, as expected, the defense is playing great as we saw tonight. Not only did the team desperately need to avoid another loss but they beat a good Rams team. That’s very encouraging.
