Matthew Stafford struggles ahead of Lions’ Week 2 matchup with 49ers

Alfred Morris and Matt Breida split the rushing attempts as the 49ers now are forced to compensate for the loss of starting running back Jerick McKinnon for the entire season.

McKinnon sustained a season-ending torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in practice one week before the season opener. Morris started Sunday and played 34 snaps, while Breida was on the field for 30 plays in the 49ers’ 24-16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Breida led the 49ers with 46 yards on 11 attempts, while Morris gained 38 yards on 12 carries.

Moreover, Garoppolo was sacked three times and under pressure throughout the game. He was under pressure on 19 of his 38 dropbacks, according to Pro Football Focus.

Reserve right tackle Garry Gilliam allowed a sack, a hit and three hurries during his 24 plays in pass protection, according to PFF.

Rookie linebacker Fred Warner was a bright spot for the team, as he tallied nine solo tackles, a forced fumble and a pass breakup. He allowed just 19 receiving yards on five targets, according to PFF.

Here are the total numbers of snaps of every 49ers player who saw action Sunday against the Vkings:
