San Francisco 49ers: 5 Biggest Storylines Entering Week 3 of the Preseason

Colin Kaepernick will see more action against San Diego.

The San Francisco 49ers have played two preseason games and looked terrible in both contests.

They lost to the Baltimore Ravens 23-3 on August 7 and then this past Sunday were pummeled by the Denver Broncos 34-0.

It is far too early to set off an alarm, however, as exhibition football means very little. Head coach Jim Harbaugh and his staff are more concerned with the key players staying healthy. In addition, they want to take a good look at players down the depth chart to make their final roster decisions.

The 49ers will host the San Diego Chargers in their third preseason game on Sunday. This is typically the game where we will see the starters play more in order to get their rhythm and continuity down.

With the 49ers' final preseason game coming only four days later against the Texans, do not look for the stars to play much, if at all, in that one.

The upcoming game against the Chargers will provide a better gauge on how ready the 49ers are to open the season on September 7 in Dallas against the Cowboys.

Let's take a look at some of the biggest storylines in Week 3 of the preseason.
