The Saints aren't the only team now with important players on the sidelines due to injury. San Francisco 49ers starting center Jonathan Goodwin limped off the field with a right leg injury halfway through the second quarter of their divisional playoff game against the New Orleans Saints in Candlestick Park.
Right guard Adam Snyder is taking the snaps at center in Goodwin's absence and taking Snyder's spot at right guard is backup offensive lineman Chilo Rachal, a former USC Trojan. The offensive line has done a good job at protecting Alex Smith so far as they've only given up one sack and two quarterback hits. The 49ers are currently holding on to a 17-14 lead late in the second quarter and have the ball. Goodman sat out for a series but returned to the field before the second quarter came to an end.
