The 49ers have a Christmas break this year, but Price is a tight turnaround to face a physical Titans team Thursday night in Nashville.
San Francisco have won five of their last six matches, using a bruised ball-control approach to control the action. Jimmy Garoppolo has responded well over the past two weeks playing some of the best football of his career: 45 of 64 for 531 yards and 3 touchdowns and no interceptions.
The Titans have lost three of their last four, their only victory coming on the Reeling Jaguars. Sunday’s 19-13 loss to the Steelers showed Tennessee three turnovers in the final 16 minutes of the game, taking nine Pittsburgh points.
Both teams may get some help from aggressive players who have been out with injury: Elijah Mitchell “took a positive turn” with his knee pain, according to GM John Lynch, while the Titans took AJ Brown to return from practice. The window is opened. a chest injury. Fellow Tennessee wideout Julio Jones is listed as a suspect after he sprained a hamstring in Pittsburgh.
Of course, the Titans are without their big time running back Derrick Henry since a Halloween leg injury. They are 3-3 since starting the season 6-2.
