  49ers | Vernon Davis has ankle bruise    Tue Sep 16, 11:48 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) has a deep bone bruise but no structural damage to his ankle, and the team is optimistic he will be able to play in Week 3.

Footballguys view: No structural damage is a good thing. We'll likely see Davis limited in practice while he deals with this injury. Fantasy owners be ready to make a change at tight end if Davis all of a sudden isn't going to play in Week 3.

San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman (knee) began sprinting this week as part of his rehab for a knee injury. 'I must admit there's times when I look out of my peripheral vision and see them doing their workouts on the turf over there,' head coach Jim Harbaugh said. 'It looked like he was moving pretty good, so that's very positive.'

  49ers | LaMichael James released    Mon Sep 8, 02:19 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James has been released, according to his agent.

Footballguys view: James was always on the roster bubble. He never seemed to fit what the 49ers wanted to do. James could find a new home with RB-needy teams, and there's a chance he could be reunited with Chip Kelly (former Oregon head coach) in Philadelphia.

  49ers | Vernon Davis scores two TDs    Mon Sep 8, 01:31 PM

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis had four catches for 44 yards and two touchdowns in the team's win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 Sunday, Sept. 7. Davis now has 53 receiving touchdowns, which is most in the NFL since 2009, including the playoffs.

Footballguys view: Davis was rock solid for his fantasy owners on Sunday. They won't face a terrible defense like the Cowboys each week, but Davis should continue to perform like a low-end TE1 for fantasy owners.

  49ers | Frank Gore makes history    Mon Sep 8, 01:18 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore totaled 63 rushing yards in the team's Week 1 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Sept. 7, making him the 29th player in NFL history with 10,000 yards for his career. Gore is also the 10th player with 10,000 yards and 10 seasons all with the same team.

Footballguys view: Start your running backs against the Cowboys. They are historically bad on defense, and they're not getting any better. Even consider quality backup running backs as at least "what the heck" flex plays against the Cowboys.

  49ers | Will re-sign Kassim Osgood    Mon Sep 8, 02:20 AM

The San Francisco 49ers plan to re-sign WR Kassim Osgood as soon as Monday, Sept. 8. It would be a repeat scenario of last season, where Osgood was let go by the team and subsequently signed again once the season started.

The San Francisco 49ers have declared inactive QB Josh X. Johnson, WR Quinton Patton, CB Chris Cook, DL Cornellius Carradine, DL Quinton Dial, OT Anthony Davis, OG Marcus Martin for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Michael Crabtree is active. There is a risk of re-injury shortening his game, but the matchup is so good that his upside makes him worth a start if you waited this long.

  49ers | Alex Boone activated    Sat Sep 6, 04:18 PM

San Francisco 49ers OG Alex Boone was activated from the exempt list and is expected to play in Week 1. The team cut WR Kassim Osgood to make room for him on the roster.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Niners as Boone is going to be a big help shoring up the interior of the line. The Cowboys aren't exactly in possession of an intimating pass rush, but you always want your best guys on the line.

  49ers | Not naming starter at RG    Sat Sep 6, 11:45 AM

The San Francisco 49ers have not said if OG Alex Boone or OG Joe Looney will start at right guard Week 1.

Footballguys view: They'd likely prefer Boone was the starter but either way against a depleted Dallas front seven there isn't a ton of concern and the offense shouldn't have much trouble putting up some solid fantasy points.

  49ers | Michael Crabtree questionable    Fri Sep 5, 06:05 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (calf) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 5, and is listed as questionable for Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: At least one beat writer non-chalantly tweeted that Crabtree would play this week, but we'll be monitoring this situation just in case. If Crabtree is active, the matchup is too good to sit him.

  49ers | Friday injury report    Fri Sep 5, 05:52 PM

San Francisco 49ers OT Anthony Davis (hamstring) and C Marcus Martin (knee) have been ruled out for Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys. CB Chris Culliver (ankle) and TE Vance McDonald (hamstring) are probable. Davis and Martin didn't practice Friday, Sept. 5, while Culliver and McDonald were full participants.

Footballguys view: The loss of a top-end starting tackle like Davis could normally be seen as a blow to the 49ers, but in this case the Cowboys defense is so understaffed that it might not be noticeable.

  49ers | Michael Crabtree slowed by calf    Thu Sep 4, 08:54 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (calf) was a limited participant in practice because of a calf injury Thursday, Sept. 4.

San Francisco 49ers OT Anthony Davis (hamstring) and C Marcus Martin (knee) missed practice Thursday, Sept. 4, and CB Chris Culliver (ankle) and TE Vance McDonald (hamstring) were limited participants.

Footballguys view: The Niners have some offensive line issues and would like to see a guy like Davis in the lineup this weekend. If he's out, Jonathan Martin steps in at right tackle. You might have heard of him. The offensive line is a concern for Niner fans and fantasy owners alike as it looked a bit shaky this season.
