Quarterback Josh Rosen likely entered Saturday night behind Nate Sudfeld for the 49ers’ third-place finish due to his spotty performance in the first 13 practices of training camp.
And he’s unlikely to close the gap with his performance in the preseason opener, a 19-16 loss to the Chiefs. Rosen, the No. 10 pick in 2018 who is on his fourth NFL team, completed 10 of 15 passes for 93 yards and threw an ungainly interception in the third quarter. Third-and-8 on the Chiefs’ 19-yard line, Rosen targeted wide receiver Travis Benjamin, who was open in the middle near the sticks on first down, but Rosen’s airborne throw was easily intercepted by safety Amari watts.
