QB Savage seen with twitching arms after hit

QB Savage seen with twitching arms after hit

He was all over San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and spent so much time in the 49ers backfield he could've been considered part of the offense. It was Garoppolo's first TD pass since being named the team's starting quarterback.

He was checked out in the medical tent for less than three minutes, then returned to the game for one series and threw two incomplete passes.

The 49ers gained 416 yards against the Texans, with Carlos Hyde rushing for 78 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Houston opened the scoring on Ka'imi Fairbairn's 55-yard field goal. Greg Mabin took over at right cornerback with 8:12 left in the third quarter. Johnson was observed spiking his helmet on the sideline after getting beaten for the touchdown.

-Linebacker Reuben Foster was shaken up after Texans running back Lamar Miller drilled him on a blitz pickup in the second quarter on a third-down play.

T.J. Yates replaced Savage in the game and led touchdown drives on his first two possessions. If Savage did indeed suffer a concussion, there will have to be a major response by the National Football League as to why he was allowed back on the field with several fail-safes used to try and prevent such an action. It appeared the wind was knocked out of him.

Brown's absence means the 49ers will call on Zane Beadles potentially line up against Jadeveon Clowney.
