Following the Jets' win today, there is a new favorite to land the No.1 overall pick in next year's draft: the 49ers. Right now, San Francisco has a 32% chance of getting that pick, pending tomorrow's FPI update.

NFL teams with scouts on the list for tonight's UCLA-Stanford game: The Niners, Miami, Pittsburgh and Seattle. The 49ers actually have seven people listed though it doesn't appear they have that many here. VP of player personnel Adam Peters is in attendance.

USC QB Sam Darnold didn't have eye-popping numbers in the Trojans' win against Cal on Saturday but he didn't really need to. Darnold finished 26-of-38 for 223 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Text from an NFL scout who watched the game on what he saw from Darnold on Saturday: "Same thing as usual, all the traits are there. (He's) got the size, arm talent, always seems poised. Needs to be more consistent and would like to see him push ball down the field more than he did."

49ers CEO Jed York tweeted his response to President Donald Trump's comments about the NFL on Saturday afternoon: “The callous and offensive comments made by the President are contradictory to what this great country stands for. Our players have exercised their rights as United States citizens in order to spark conversation and action to address social injustice. We will continue to support them in their peaceful pursuit of positive change in our country and around the world. The San Francisco 49ers will continue to work toward bringing communities, and those who serve, them closer together.”

HQ recaps the action on TNF and more

On the 49ers' pass rush against the Rams, coach Kyle Shanahan said it "wasn't good enough" and that "our guys didn't win." Niners leaned on four-man rush more often than not and didn't have nearly the success they had in Seattle against the Rams. In fact, the 49ers finished with no sacks and three quarterback hits.

Like with LB Reuben Foster, 49ers S Eric Reid (knee) is also not expected to return from injury in time to play against Arizona next week. Coach Kyle Shanahan said Reid is going to take a bit longer than Foster to get back, which means he's likely another two-three weeks from being in that conversation.

As Niners coach Kyle Shanahan indicated Thursday night, the team has three players in the concussion protocol: FB Kyle Juszczyk, LB Brock Coyle and S Jaquiski Tartt. All three will go through normal procedure before they can be cleared to return but will have a few extra days to recover because of the extra time off after a Thursday night game.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said he would be "shocked" if LB Reuben Foster was ready to return from his ankle injury next week against Arizona. Foster is progressing and is out of his walking boot but it sounds like the original one-month projection for a return will remain the target.

49ers DE Tank Carradine has a high ankle sprain, according to coach Kyle Shanahan. Shanahan said the team will have to make a decision on whether to place Carradine on injured reserve because he's expected to miss an extended period of time.

After watching the tape of the offensive pass interference call against WR Trent Taylor late in Thursday night's game, coach Kyle Shanahan said, "I saw a very good route."

Hoyer's deep ball sparked Niners' offense

Jared Goff hit a few deep balls Thursday, completing 3 of 4 passes 20 or more yards downfield after making just four such completions all of last season. But Brian Hoyer made a habit of it, completing 7 of 9 on passes thrown 15 or more yards downfield after failing to complete such a pass in his first two games of 2017. (ESPN Stats & Info)

Kellerman calls Rams-49ers best game of the year (1:35)

49ers K Robbie Gould on missed extra point: "I just rushed it," Gould said. "I missed it, I made a mistake. Obviously, I wish I didn't do that. We probably should be playing in overtime right now. But at the end of the day, they're counting on me to do my job and I didn't make the extra point that I needed to make."

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers LB NaVorro Bowman said he believed the turnaround after playing about 80 snaps on Sunday had an impact on his performance against the Rams on Thursday: "I think it had a huge effect on my body personally," Bowman said. "I have done everything to get my body as close to ready for this game as possible but we signed up for this so the schedule says we have to play these games but there's no way I felt the way I felt on Sunday today."

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers came out of Thursday night's game pretty banged up as LB Brock Coyle, FB Kyle Juszczyk and S Jaquiski Tartt are all in the concussion protocol. DE Tank Carradine also suffered an ankle injury and RB Carlos Hyde is dealing with a hip issue though he finished the game. The good news? They have some extra time to rest and recover before their Oct. 1 game at Arizona.
