49ers (0-1) at Sea­hawks (0-1)

San Francisco Chronicle - - NFL - — Eric Branch

When: 1:25 p.m. TV/Ra­dio: 2t /810, 107.7

Spotlight on: DE Arik Arm­stead: This would be a log­i­cal time for a break­out game for the 2015 first-round pick whose first sea­son as a starter last year was marred by a shoul­der in­jury. Arm­stead had a quiet sea­son opener (three tack­les, no QB pres­sures), but now faces a leaky of­fen­sive line that in­cludes LT Rees Od­hi­ambo, who will be mak­ing his se­cond ca­reer start. The 49ers had zero sacks and two hits on QB Cam New­ton in a Week 1 loss to Carolina.

Trans­ac­tions: The 49ers pro­moted CB Asa Jack­son to the ros­ter from the prac­tice squad. In or­der to make room, the team waived CB Keith Reaser. Jack­son spent four years with the Ravens and last sea­son with the Li­ons.

In­jury notes: 49ers — LB Reuben Foster (an­kle) is out; S Jim­mie Ward (ham­string) is ques­tion­able. Sea­hawks — CB Richard Sher­man (ham­string) is ques­tion­able.
