Coach Chip Kelly said opponents are playing more base defense and less nickel against the
"I think it's different how they're playing us this year," Kelly said. "We've seen different looks in terms of the three games we've played this year compared to last year. I think LeSean's doing everything possible. Again, if that's how you're going to do it, and we're going to end up with 30-whatever points a game and continue to be productive on the offensive side of the ball, it's ultimately that.
"But also you're down four linemen that you had that were running in front of them last year too. So I think sometimes when we're running the play, there is a lot better push at the point of attack, and that doesn't have anything to do with the running back from that standpoint. It's kind of what it is right now."
Kelly added that "if you're going to play us in base, it's difficult to cover the pass. So it's picking what they want to do."
McCoy rushed the ball 19 times, despite being forced to go to the locker room during the first half to be tested for a concussion. He was cleared and came right back to the game, but failed to make much of an impact. He rushed for just 22 yards in the game, and was held without a reception for the first time Week 3 of last season.
McCoy, last season's rushing leader, has failed to break out through three games. He heads into Week 4 against the 49ers with 175 yards on 60 carries with just one touchdown through three games.
McCoy was taken to the sidelines where he tried to plead with trainers to let him back in the game. He was taken to the locker room to be examined for a head injury, and at this point, nothing is known on his chances to return.
McCoy was targeted five times and took a back seat in the passing game to running back Darren Sproles, who caught all seven of his targets for 152 yards.
McCoy will go for his first 100-yard rushing game Sunday against the Redskins.
