49er News

The Rams face two back to back road games, beginning with the 49ers this week...

Santa Clara, CA

The San Francisco 49ers returned to the practice field to begin preparing for Sunday's home opener against NFC West rival St. Louis. Kickoff at Monster Park is scheduled for 1 p.m.

   Said Head Coach Mike Nolan, "Certainly it's an important week for us. We've got to continue to get better. As we tell our team, great teams practice to get better and bad teams treat practice as a routine. I'd like to think our team practices to get better every week. That's something that we press upon our players. I'm pretty certain that they get the idea."

   The 49ers suffered three injuries in the opener against Arizona last week. G Larry Allen left in the first quarter with a strained MCL of his knee. Nolan said Monday that Allen is expected to miss 2-4 weeks of action while recovering from his injury. Tony Wragge entered the game at left guard as his
replacement last week. Left tackle Jonas Jennings was also forced out of the game for a few series with an ankle sprain. Second-year tackle Adam Snyder replaced Jennings, but Jennings was able to return to action. Allen is listed as out on the injury report, while Jennings begins the week as doubtful after missing practice today. Rookie TE Vernon Davis is also listed on the injury report as probable with a hip injury that occurred in the Cardinals game. Davis did not practice today but is expected back on the field tomorrow.

  LB Parys Haralson went through the team portion of practice for the first time since suffering a foot strain in practice during training camp. He had been working in individual drills but was being held out of the team portion since last week. 
 

   Rookie TE Delanie Walker (shoulder) remains out for this week while recovering from a shoulder injury suffered in the preseason finale against San Diego.
