SANTA CLARA — This is the live blog for the second quarter of the 49ers’ Week 4 game against the Eagles. I will update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box.
2:13 Kaepernick rolls out to his left and throws back against his body to Frank Gore, who is wide open. Fifty-five yard touchdown. What a play. 10-7 Niners.
2:14 Anthony Davis has a knee injury and his return is questionable.
2:15 Polk returns the kickoff to the Eagles’ 15.

2:19 Ellington gets tackled right away at the 49ers’ 38.
2:24 On third and 3 Kaepernick throws right to Malcolm Jenkins who intercepts the passs, breaks a bunch of tackles and runs 53 yards for a touchdown. Kaepernick was throwing to Lloyd who was running a quick slant. Kaepernick didn’t see the safety dropping into coverage. Oops. 14-10 Eagles.
2:27 Ellington returns the kick to the 49ers’ 22.

2:33 Eric Reid seems hurt as he walks off the field slowly.
2:35 The Eagles’ special teams have scored two touchdowns in this game.
