No big-name QB for 49ers

With Shaun Hill dealing with a dislocated finger and Alex Smith struggling with weakness in his forearm, the 49ers will be down to one healthy quarterback Sunday -- starter Trent Dilfer. The 49ers might add a passer to the practice squad but there is no push to bring a bigger-name player onto the active roster. Both Arnaz Battle and Michael Robinson could fill in as an emergency quarterback.

Linebacker Parys Haralson was not fined for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Matt Hasselbeck on Monday. The hit, which occurred on third down, gave the Seahawks a first down and they laater scored on the drive.

For those of you watching the Michigan-Ohio State game tomorrow, here are the draft-worthy seniors to keep an eye on:

#2 Shawn Crable OLB
#20 Leon Hart RB
#7 Chad Henne QB
#77 Jake Long T

Ohio State
#74 Kirk Barton T
#6 Larry Grant OLB

-- Matt Barrows


Matt was born in Blacksburg, Va., and attended the University of Virginia. He graduated in 1995, went to Northwestern for a journalism degree a year later, and got his first job at a South Carolina daily in 1997. He joined The Bee as a Metro reporter in 1999 and started covering the 49ers in 2003. His favorite player of all time is Darrell Green.
