The Niners kick off their 2017 preseason campaign tonight with a road bout versus the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

-Defensive end Aaron Lynch, working with the second team, recorded two sacks in the first half.

With Cairo Santos still dealing with a groin injury, Kansas City is preparing for their season opener against the San Francisco 49ers by bringing a new kicker to the team.

CHIEFS 17, 49ers 17: C.J. Beathard delivered a 47-yard touchdown pass to Kendrick Bourne.

Beathard, who rallied his team from a 17-9 deficit, finished his professional debut 6-of-10 passing for 94 yards and two touchdowns.

"We've got to clean up the penalties", Shanahan said at halftime.

First, he was beaten badly down the right sideline by wide receiver Tyreek Hill on the game's first play for the 32-yard gain. "... We've got to clean that stuff up before we score". Matt Barkley (10 of 17, 168 yards) fared OK as the No. 2 QB, and he showed touch on a play-action pass to Garrett Celek for 24 yards. His pressure against the right guard almost resulted in a sack and instead it produced an interception by Rashard Robinson.

The third-string units for both squads took over in the third quarter.

The 49ers first-team offense struggled under starting quarterback Brian Hoyer, mustering just 3 yards of offensive in two drives.

But there is a battle for the second spot on the depth chart.

-Defensive tackle DeForest Buckner started but was removed from the game early due to a bothersome ankle.

- Three field goals gave the 49ers a 9-7 halftime lead, but a 51-yard attempt by Robbie Gould got blocked as the half expired.

He played into the fourth quarter and ended on a couple of down notes.

Former Iowa tight end George Kittle has also played well in camp but is expected to miss Friday's game with a hamstring injury. Running back Spencer Ware finished the drive with a 2-yard touchdown run.
