A win for the #49ers, but a costly one. Per coach Kyle Shanahan, CB Emmanuel Moseley is feared to have torn his ACL. DB Jimmie Ward broke his hand, Nick Bosa has a tight groin and K Robbie Gould likely has a knee contusion.
Odds Across Sportsbooks
With that third-down conversion to Brandon Aiyuk, the #49ers have been successful on 6-of-10 third-down attempts. Give me a little time to get out my calculator in order to figure out the percentage.

49ers' defense injury summary: -SF fears Emmanuel Moseley tore his ACL -Nick Bosa dealing with a tight groin -Jimmie Ward broke his hand
Jimmy Garoppolo on the 49ers' injuries: "It's football. We've got to keep going. Train ain't stopping."
Talanoa Hufanga very self-critical after today's win: "Defense could've been way better with me doing my job."
Deebo Samuel and Danny Amendola just pulled up. twitter.com/art_stapleton/…
#49ers fear that CB Emmanuel Moseley suffered a torn left ACL on Sunday. Further tests in next 24 hours will be needed to confirm.
#SFvsCAR @DignityHealth injury update: S Jimmie Ward (hand) is out for the remainder of the game.
Tevin Coleman has added an outside element the 49ers haven't had since Elijah Mitchell went out in Week 1.
49ers really wanted to get Tevin Coleman that touchdown. Mission accomplished
Former first rounders who are not playing for the 49ers right now: Nick Bosa Arik Armstead Javon Kinlaw Jimmie Ward Jason Verrett Trey Lance Trent Williams
Congratulations to Mitch Wishnowsky. Kyle Shanahan could live without seeing him kick a field goal or extra point ever again
Garoppolo said that the 49ers have been talking about just needed to get Jauan Jennings the football because he is such a gamer in space — hard to bring down with that big frame and reckless post-catch running abandon
Charvarius Ward allowed just 1 reception for 32 yards & forced 4 tight windows on 6 targets in the 49ers 37-15 victory over the Panthers. Ward has forced the highest tight window target rate (36.7%) since entering the NFL in 2018 (min. 200 targets). #SFvsCAR | #FTTB pic.twitter.com/cchO91h0HO
WIth today's win, the #49ers are now 46-46 under coach Kyle Shanahan since he took over in 2017 (including playoffs). A win next week in Atlanta would give Shanahan an overall winning record for the first time in his head coaching tenure.
Trent Williams is doing some light jogging before today's game. It's notable there's no walking boot protecting his high-ankle sprain. Bodes well for KC at SF? pic.twitter.com/pXITvy5q8c
#49ers inactives RB Marlon Mack DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) RB Tyrion Davis-Price (ankle) TE Tyler Kroft (knee) DB Tarvarius Moore (hamstring) T Trent Williams (ankle) *Colton McKivitz was placed on IR.
Deommodore Lenoir leaving the field for the locker room. Samuel Womack the next guy up at NCB.
#49ers haven't been much of a blitzing team but DeMeco Ryans pressing the button well this season. They blitzed the Panthers on 17 dropbacks and got pressure on 8 of them, including 3 sacks. Blitz has generated 8 sacks this season with 52% pressure rate, 3rd-highest in the NFL.
Good things happen for the 49ers when Kyle Juszczyk touches the football
Charles Omenihu joins Talanoa Hufanga and Fred Warner in the sack column for the 49ers' defense.
49ers inactives at Carolina: Tyler Kroft Trent Williams Ty Davis-Price Tarvarius Moore Arik Armstead Javon Kinlaw Marlon Mack
Ray-Ray McCloud walks off the field slowly after that return. Danny Gray was warming up at punt returner earlier, might be the No. 2 PR today.
Great chance for Charles Omenihu and Samson Ebukam to shine: Big lead, Bosa on the sideline
New/old #49ers and their jersey numbers for today's game vs. the #Panthers: 1-DB Jimmie Ward 17-WR Malik Turner 28-RB Tevin Coleman 55-DL Akeem Spence
Samuel Womack enters for Moseley. Obviously, Jason Verrett is eligible to come off PUP at at any point.
Daniel Brunskill in at RG on this next drive.
Akeem Spence is doing quality work against double teams on run plays. This is his first game on the 53-man roster for the 49ers. Promoted yesterday
This is a Spencer Burford drive. (It's been a two-drive rotation so far).
Matt Rhule is, I assure you, a good college coach who'll rebuild a program sometime soon. There's no reason for this to continue in Carolina. Not a pro coach, not special, not what Tepper thought he was. Happens. No shame. Off to Lincoln or Tempe and happiness. I've seen enough.
Baker Mayfield's 16.8 QBR is the 2nd-worst by any QB to start in each of their team's first 5 games of season since tracking began in 2006. 2008 JaMarcus Russell; 11.5 2022 Baker Mayfield; 16.8 2017 DeShone Kizer; 17.0 pic.twitter.com/FiLXE0vwHM
The Panthers may have found a kick returner. Raheem Blackshear with a 48-yard return.
No Xavier Woods for Carolina. The Panthers will be without both starting safeties, Woods and Jeremy Chinn, against the 49ers
With Rashard Higgins and Laviska Shenault inactive, Terrace Marshall will get a jersey for the first time since Week 2 at NYG.
Eddy Pineiro makes this one from 43 yards. Panthers trail 10-3 with 7:59 left in 1H.
Frankie Luvu and Xavier Woods are out for today's game panthers.com/news/inactives…
Baker Mayfield airmails Christian McCaffrey, Emmanuel Mosely picks it off and returns it for 41 yards for TD. 49ers lead 17-3 and ... wow.
Jaycee Horn just limp-walked off the field under his own power, replaced by Keith Taylor. They're looking at him on the sidelines.
Brian Burns wins that round versus Jaylon Moore. Illustration of "avoid third-and-long with your third-string left tackle"
David Tepper should walk over to the Niners sideline right about now and just keep slipping DeMeco Ryans money until Ryans uh, accidentally misses his flight and stays in Charlotte.
Donte Jackson voicing support of Matt Rhule: "We know what kind of ball is being coached and it's not losing ball."
Derrick Brown already has six pass breakups this year. Totaled eight his first two years.
Kittle sealed off Damien Wilson ruthlessly on that run twitter.com/LombardiHimsel…
Panthers defense forces fumble. Damien Wilson forces it after completion to Kittle. Yetur Gross-Matos recovers.
Jaycee Horn's back on the sidelines, but he doesn't have a helmet and there's no indication he's coming back in. For a defense already without Frankie Luvu, Xavier Woods, and Jeremy Chinn, that's nothing they needed to see.
Great physical catch-and-run by Jauan Jennings to the 3, bounced off Shaq Thompson to start his 32-yard reception
Will Ben McAdoo be one of the 32 in a big chair tomorrow morning?
49ers driving again as the 1Q ends. Tevin Coleman with a helluva catch over Myles Hartsfield.
