ATLANTA (AP) — Practically every member of the Los Angeles Rams has a favorite story about Aaron Donald's feats of ridiculous athleticism.
Michael Brockers loved the moment at Carolina in 2016 when Donald beat the Panthers' left guard and launched himself like Superman, swallowing up Cam Newton while airborne.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Nick Mullens is getting an extended look as the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback, and an important test awaits Sunday.
Mullens will make the first road start of his NFL career against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, his first chance to show how he handles a hostile environment after making his first two starts at home.
After the 49ers lost No. 1 quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to a season-ending knee injury in Week 3, C.J. Beathard got the first crack at replacing him.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Nick Mullens got several hundred congratulatory text messages, a phone call from Brett Favre and his Twitter account verified.
Delivering the most productive game by a quarterback in his NFL debut since the merger leads to many accolades.
Mullens threw for 262 yards and three touchdowns and the San Francisco 49ers thoroughly dominated the Battle of the Bay, beating the Oakland Raiders 34-3 on Thursday night.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Nick Mullens will make his NFL debut as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers against the Oakland Raiders.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard missed practice with an injured right wrist that could keep him out of Thursday night's game against the Oakland Raiders.
"His wrist hurts," coach Kyle Shanahan said. "He's struggling today to hold a ball. So, we'll see how he is tomorrow."
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — C.J. Beathard lined up in the shotgun with 7 seconds left, hoping to get one more completion to set up a potential tying field goal.
He and the 49ers never got the chance.
The snap sailed over Beathard's head and San Francisco's chances went with it, punctuating a disheartening 18-15 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — C.J. Beathard went toe-to-toe with Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay for nearly 60 minutes before the San Francisco 49ers fell just short at the end of another tough loss.
Despite playing with a backup quarterback with starter Jimmy Garoppolo sidelined for the season, the 49ers offense has shown signs of being productive of late even if it hasn't led to wins.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have little time to dwell on a heartbreaking loss to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
The Niners have to immediately shift their focus to another tough test with the undefeated Los Angeles Rams coming to town on Sunday.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — After a four-turnover performance last week, San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard faces quite a platform in a try for redemption.
Beathard will lead his team into Lambeau Field for Monday night's game against the Green Bay Packers, a nationally televised matchup that represents the biggest stage on which Beathard will have started an NFL game.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The stat sheet couldn't have been more lopsided. The San Francisco 49ers had decided edges in yards, first downs, time of possession and just about every other statistical category except one and ended on the losing end against Arizona.
That's what committing five turnovers and getting no takeaways will do.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers are so banged up, they're not even sure which holes to fill first.
Three of San Francisco's five starting offensive linemen — left tackle Joe Staley, center Weston Richburg and right tackle Mike McGlinchey — suffered knee injuries during Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers that leave them questionable for this weekend's game against the Arizona Cardinals.
CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Although C.J. Beathard knew he should slide, the San Francisco 49ers desperately needed a first down in the fourth quarter of a two-point game.
So Beathard kept running toward Casey Hayward, and the Los Angeles Chargers' Pro Bowl cornerback knocked the wind clean out of the quarterback with a devastating shoulder hit.
CARSON, Calif. (AP) — C.J. Beathard's first game in his second stint as an NFL starting quarterback will be against the team he grew up rooting for.
The second-year signal caller will receive the most attention on Sunday when San Francisco faces the Los Angeles Chargers at the StubHub Center. Beathard is back in the starting spot after Jimmy Garoppolo sustained a season-ending knee injury in last week's loss at Kansas City.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The time to feel down about star quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's season-ending knee injury has passed.
The San Francisco 49ers know they now must prepare to go ahead with the rest of what was supposed to be a promising season with backup C.J. Beathard at the helm instead of the player who immediately became the face of the franchise.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — For coach Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers, this season has been about rebuilding for the future. But the process has suddenly been accelerated by the arrival of their new starting quarterback.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers are ready for the start of the Jimmy Garoppolo era after announcing Tuesday that the franchise's quarterback of the future will make his first start for the team this week.
Coach Kyle Shanahan met with Garoppolo and former starter C.J. Beathard to inform them that Garoppolo will make his first start for San Francisco (1-10) on Sunday at Chicago (3-8).
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Kyle Shanahan isn't ready to decide between quarterbacks C.J. Beathard and Jimmy Garoppolo just yet.
The San Francisco 49ers coach is waiting to see how Beathard recovers from the hip and knee injuries that forced him out of Sunday's loss to Seattle. Garoppolo replaced him late in the game, and now Tom Brady's former backup could get his first start for San Francisco next week against the Bears.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo's 49ers debut was never drawn up like this.
San Francisco preferred to groom him for 2018, giving Tom Brady's former backup time to get comfortable in a new system, not take chances with the promising young quarterback in a lost season.
