“That’s been talked about a lot,” Good­ell said. “But the own­er­ship re­ally feels strongly that that’s a re­ward for our fans. I think if you had a fran­chise here, I think it would come into play. I think with­out a fran­chise it’s prob­a­bly dif­fi­cult.” back Baker May­field.

The league had said White­head should have been pe­nal­ized for strik­ing May­field in the side of the hel­met.

May­field was slid­ing at the end of a 35-yard scram­ble when he got hit by White­head, who was ini­tially pe­nal­ized be­fore the of­fi­cials con­ferred and de­cided to pick up the flag – and one against May­field for taunt­ing.

First-year ref­eree Shawn Hochuli made the sit­u­a­tion worse by in­cor­rectly an­nounc­ing May­field “was still a run­ner and there­fore is al­lowed to be hit in the head.”

49ers: Re­ceiver Pierre Gar­con will miss Sun­day’s game against the Car­di­nals with in­juries to his shoul­der and knee.

Jets: The Jets signed run­ning back De’An­gelo Hen­der­son from the prac­tice squad, adding much-needed depth to their back­field.
