CHICAGO – Safety Adrian Colbert returned to action Sunday and played every snap after missing just one game after undergoing thumb surgery during the bye week.

Colbert recorded three tackles in the 49ers’ 15-14 victory over the Chicago Bears in a game in which the offense controlled the ball and provided plenty of rest for the defense.

The 36 plays the 49ers defended – 37, including a play nullified by penalty – were the fewest snaps against the 49ers since Oct. 20, 1991, when the Detroit Lions ran 35 plays against the 49ers.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo made his first start as a member of the 49ers and completed 26 of 37 passes for 293 yards – the most ever in franchise history for a player making his starting debut.

Garoppolo completed passes to eight different receivers, including Trent Taylor, who was required intravenous fluids after spending most of the evening and morning sick from a case of food poisoning.

Taylor made the most of his 31 snaps on offense with six receptions for 92 yards. Five of his receptions extended drives with successful third-down conversions.
