News: Skuta started Sunday's game in place of Ahmad Brooks, who was benched for missing a team meeting earlier this week. He finished with five tackles (four solo) and a sack in the loss to the Raiders.
Impact: After a solid start to the season, Skuta had slipped into obscurity recently with Aldon Smith's return and Aaron Lynch's emergence. Skuta proved his worth with the opportunity presented to him Sunday but will likely return to his reserve/special teams role when Brooks is reinstated next week.
