49ers' DeForest Buckner: Has dominant game Sunday

Buckner (foot) turned in his best performance of the season Sunday, racking up nine tackles (five solo), two sacks and a fumble recovery in a blowout loss to Buffalo.

Buckner showed no ill effects of the foot injury that held him out of last week's contest. He was on the field for 73 of the 49ers' 79 defensive snaps as the team takes the training wheels off of their first-round draft pick. If Sunday's performance is a sign of things to come for Buckner, then he would become an IDP factor with his ability to rack up tackles and get to the quarterback.
