With several 49ers starters banged up, it looks like they are going to play through injury on the short week at home against the Seahawks.
Despite playing on the short week, several banged up stars for the San Francisco 49ers look set to play against their rival, the Seattle Seahawks, at home on Thursday Night Football.
According to Matt Maiocco, Anquan Boldin, Carlos Hyde and Reggie Bush, were all warming up before the game against the Seahawks, and look set to play in Thursday night’s rivalry game.
For the 49ers, it’s great news as they have a chance to shovel dirt on their rival’s season and keep their season alive at the same time. The Seahawks secondary hasn’t been the same this season in the fourth quarter and if San Francisco can keep it close late, they will have a chance to make big plays.
Despite one bad game early on in the season, quarterback Colin Kaepernick has looked much more comfortable lately and with Anquan Boldin and Reggie Bush probably back, it means he will have two more weapons on the field to play with.
Having a big bruising running back in Carlos Hyde back on the field is just as huge. With Hyde, the 49ers can physically impose their will on the Seahawks’ defense and allow Kaepernick to make plays with his arms and legs.
It won’t be easy as the Seattle defense could find themselves very easily just as well in this game. To go into war with a rival, it’s better to be healthy, and San Francisco looks a lot more healthy going into the game than they have in recent weeks.
