SAN FRANCISCO -- The Seahawks are down to their third-string left tackle after an ankle injury knocked out Sean Locklear for the rest of the game.

The 49ers won't be sending a sympathy card. San Francisco is down to its third option at right tackle after Marvel Smith retired and the team benched a struggling Adam Snyder in the first half of this game. Newcomer Tony Pashos has already allowed a sack at right tackle for the 49ers.

The Seahawks expect Walter Jones to return in Week 3. I'd be impressed if they could get through this game and win it with Brandon Frye at left tackle.
