The San Francisco 49ers are gunning for their sixth consecutive win on Sunday when they host the Washington Redskins at Candlestick Park. With a win over the reeling Redskins, the 49ers would have their first six-game winning streak in 14 years, as well as a stranglehold on the NFC West division as the 2011 NFL season enters the first weekend in November.
San Francisco will likely be without their standout defensive lineman, Ray McDonald, who missed all of the team's practices this week with a nagging hamstring injury. He is listed as doubtful for Sunday. McDonald has been an integral part of San Francisco's top-ranked rush defense. The 49ers are averaging only 73.4 yards per game on the ground, and have not allowed a 100-yard rusher in their past 29 games, the longest active streak in the NFL. McDonald has 13 tackles and 3 sacks so far in his fifth NFL season, all with the 49ers.
Here's the rest of the 49ers injury report for Week 9:
Questionable: FB Moran Norris (fibula)
