49ers' Randy Moss Was Team's No. 4 WR Against Lions

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss was signed to help the team get stronger and better as a receiving unit.

At this point though, Moss has only seen a couple of touches compared to the rest of his compatriots. Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports that Moss has taken a backseat and was the fourth receiver on the field. Indeed, if you look at snaps, Mario Manningham has become the clear No. 2 receiver behind Michael Crabtree, with Kyle Williams taking over primary slot receiver responsibilities.

Moss was only on the field for 16 snaps and was targeted two times. Moss caught one of the passes from Alex Smith for 14 yards. Then Moss managed to get an end zone target; he didn't catch the pass, but drew a pass interference flag from the Lions defender, setting up first and goal at the one-yard line. Frank Gore bunched it in a few snaps later.
