NFC West penalty watch: Receivers clean
By Mike Sando
San Francisco 49ers wide receivers had eight penalties last season. They have one through Week 14 this season.
The single penalty for 49ers receivers jumped out when I sorted NFC West penalties by team and position for the latest "penalty watch" item.
Officials flagged Kyle Williams for illegal formation in Week 10. That's been the only penalty against a 49ers wideout so far. The penalty count for San Francisco receivers fell this way last season: Braylon Edwards 3, Michael Crabtree 2 and one apiece for Williams, Josh Morgan and Ted Ginn Jr.
The fouls included three for offensive pass interference and three for illegal blocks above the waist.
The chart includes accepted and declined penalties.
