NFL Panic Meter: 49ers

San Francisco should be panicking at 0-6, but that doesn't seem to be the case, perhaps because the Niners knew a turnaround would take time.

49ers DE Aaron Lynch is dealing with a calf strain, per coach Kyle Shanahan. With Lynch dealing with that and Arik Armstead's broken hand, Niners suddenly thin on bodies at DE.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said DE Arik Armstead broke his hand in Sunday's loss to Washington. Armstead will need surgery. No timetable for a return though Shanahan indicated it would be "awhile."

Beathard ignites spark in 49ers' offense

Midway through the second quarter against Washington, the 49ers benched Brian Hoyer in favor of C.J. Beathard. When Kyle Shanahan handed over the keys to the rookie QB, things drastically turned around for San Francisco's offense.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said rookie C.J. Beathard showed him enough today to continue as the starter moving forward. So Beathard has the controls until or unless something changes.

On rumors that RB Carlos Hyde is on the trade block, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said there is absolutely no truth to them. Hyde said GM John Lynch reassured him of that after the speculation began.

49ers S Eric Reid is one of the players who will attend owners meetings in New York on Tuesday to discuss national anthem controversy. Anquan Boldin and Malcolm Jenkins also expected to attend. Reid is staying on the east coast next two days to attend the meetings while team flies back tonight.

Another week, another devastatingly close loss for the 49ers. They made a valiant comeback behind rookie QB C.J. Beathard but lost by two points to Washington. And with that, the Niners are the first team in NFL history to lose five straight games by three points or fewer. The difference this week from the previous four? Beathard. If nothing else, the spark the Niners got from their rookie QB in this one makes him worth watching over the team's final 10 games.

For the fifth straight week, the 49ers are in it late in the game. They are tied with Washington as the fourth quarter opens. Last week, the Niners became the second team of the Super Bowl era to lose four straight games by three points or less. Could a fifth be in the offing?
