49ers' new D-lineman step in, Aiyuk steps up in Week 3 win originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
The 49ers rotated eight defensive linemen into the action in their Week 3 game. Ansah and Jordan suited up for their first games with the team to help the 49ers compensate for the season-ending losses of Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas. Both played more than 40 percent of the team’s defensive snaps.
Jordan was on the field for 22 of the 49ers’ 53 defensive plays, while Ansah played 21 snaps. Jordan was credited with two tackles, a sack, a fumble recovery and two quarterback pressures.
Rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk started and played 56 snaps in his second career game –- second among all 49ers receivers behind only Kendrick Bourne (64). Aiyuk caught a team-high five passes for 70 yards. He also took three handoffs and gained 31 yards and a touchdown.
Here is the complete rundown of playing time for each 49ers player:
Quarterback: Nick Mullens 77
Wide receiver: Kendrick Bourne 64, Brandon Aiyuk 56, Trent Taylor 30, Mohamed Sanu 20, Dante Pettis 8
