The embarrassment from two weeks ago is lingering, even as the 49ers lay down replacement sod after the Taylor Swift shows last weekend.
Tony Romo play limited if at all against the 49ers because of the oline injuries and the concerns about the grass at the new stadium

Yeah, this isn’t optimal. Sure, the 49ers and their fans might detest the Cowboys. But even if your worst enemy comes to your house, you don’t want them to see trash all over the place, broken furniture and holes in the floor.
Levi’s Stadium will host Super Bowl 50, and clearly word has spread among the owners that the team in Santa Clara can’t figure out how to grow grass suitable for professional football. The NFL will take control of the operation in the weeks leading up to the game, but for now this has moved from a local source of bemusement to a bi-weekly concern for the league.
The Cowboys aren’t going to be the only team poking and prodding the turf during their pregame walk-throughs. The Chargers are going to be interested in how the grass looks after the Luke Bryan concert five nights earlier. The Vikings won’t have the luxury of benching their starters when they open their season at Levi’s on Monday Night Football.
As for what the Cowboys will *probably* play on in a couple days, here’s a photo Matt Barrows posted today. See, Cowboys? Nothing to worry about, it’s totally fine — like a putting green at Augusta National!
Levi’s new grass. It seams ok to me. A photo posted by Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) on
