Nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga, who missed Sunday’s game due to a staph infection, left the 49ers’ facility Monday morning with his left arm in a sling. Now I’m no Doctor but a staff infection isn’t something that usually requires a sling.

At 4-1, the San Francisco 49ers are one of the real surprise teams of this young NFL season. Not only do they already have a two-game lead in their division, but they've got the NFL's best point differential through five games at +64.
Their strategy, apparently, is to make opposing teams quit. It's not easy to do, but if you can execute it consistently, it's pretty...
Kerry Taylor's current claim to fame? He's the nephew of former 49ers wide receiver John Taylor.
But the Niners evidently think the younger Taylor could make a name for himself in the NFL.
