Week Five had been an uneventful one on the field for long snappers until Monday Night Football. New Niners snapper, veteran Garrison Sanborn, had a rough night and the Niners missed three field goals.
Sanborn is the third snapper for the Niners this year after they moved on from Colin Holba after two games and Jon Condo retired after one game. The Niners will have Kyle Nelson back when his suspension expires after Week Seven.
The biggest snapping news off the field involved Thomas Hennessy of the Jets. Hennessy, who would have become a restricted free agent after this season, signed a four-year extension that will keep him under contract through the 2023 season.
On the field, three tackles recorded assisted tackles in punt coverage, including Hennessy. Josh Harris (Falcons) and Nick Sundberg (Redskins) also had assists.
