The performance of Trente Jones was singled out by Harbaugh

Following the devastating injury to Zak Zinter, the offensive line was shaken up by acting head coach Sherrone Moore. And Harbaugh particularly singled out the performance of Trente Jones.

“Tremendous,” Harbaugh said of the offensive line’s showing. “And when Zak went out, Karsen came down to right guard and then Trente Jones came in at right tackle. Somebody that doesn't get a lot of recognition, so let me talk about Trente a little bit. … He’s one of my favorite players. I love seeing No. 53 out there. He's been an extra O-lineman; he’s been a selfless player.

And went in at right tackle, played great. You hate to see that Zak is hurt, but what an opportunity now for Trente to show what he can do as that next man up. I am so excited to watch him.”
