Quarterback Joe Montana of the San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been told to rest his ailing right elbow for two weeks. If rest fails to heal the problem, Montana might have to undergo a third operation on the elbow to keep his comeback hopes alive. Montana, who missed all of last season because of a torn elbow tendon, had major surgery in October to reattach the tendon and a second procedure in May to loosen scar tissue. Montana was on course for a return to the 49ers this season.

Pittsburgh's 10th consecutive home-field victory marked the return of Yancey Thigpen, who caught two touchdown passes in his first start this season.
