NFC Notes: 49ers, Packers, Seahawks



  • Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that 49ers RB Matt Breida suffered an ankle sprain during Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, but X-Rays came back negative.
  • Rapoport says that Breida may still miss some time, but this thankfully isn’t the worst-case scenario.


Packers K Mason Crosby had a career-worst performance on Sunday, missing 4 of 5 field goals and one extra point.

After the game, Crosby told reporters that this is “uncharted territory” for him.

“I’ve done this a long time and I’ve never had a game like that,” Crosby said, per Rob Demovsky. “This is uncharted territory.

Crosby explained that he felt in rhythm, but the results just weren’t there for him.

“Every attempt I felt like I was in rhythm going through it,” Crosby said, via The Athletic. “It was one of those days that just wasn’t there. I’ve done this a long time, and I’ve never had a day where it wasn’t there like that. We’ll look at it, look at every facet of it and flush it.


  • Ian Rapoport reports that Seahawks S Earl Thomas, who suffered a leg fracture last Sunday, will undergo surgery to have a rod inserted this week.
  • This procedure will increase the odds of Thomas’ fracture fully healing while lowering the chances of a refracture.
  • The good news for Thomas is that he will be 100 percent long before the start of free agency.
