O'Sullivan's passer rating? 158.3 ... Injury updates

It doesn't get any higher than that, folks. Case closed? Like O'Sullivan, Alex Smith threw a touchdown in this game. he finished the game with a 71.4 rating.

Here's an injury update ...

Jeff Ulbrich left the game after injuring his back on special teams. Ulbrich started the game at "Ted" linebacker, then gave way to Takeo Spikes. Spikes came into the game before Ulbrich was injured. Ulbrich is on the sideline now and the injury does not *appear* to be serious. Hopefully, I'll have more after the game.

Allen Rossum injured his back on a kick return. Dashon Goldson left the game with a cramp.


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.
