  49ers | Aldon Smith suspended    Fri Aug 29, 03:57 PM

San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith was suspended for the first nine games of 2014 for violating the policy and program for substances of abuse and the personal conduct policy.

Footballguys view: Smith is lucky the suspension isn't longer. The 49ers are now going to move forward without one of the best pass-rushers in the game for a majority of the regular season. They'll now turn to Dan Skuta and Corey Lemonier as linebackers opposite Ahmad Brooks.

San Francisco 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore (knee) said he expects to start the season on the Non-Football Injury list and hopes to be activated after the first six weeks.

Footballguys view: Lattimore was supposed to be practicing and playing by now. The odds are looking very long for this feel good story to have a good football outcome.

  49ers | Stevie Johnson should make team    Mon Aug 25, 06:11 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Stevie Johnson has a very good chance to make the 53-man roster, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Johnson is a seasoned veteran who is back where he grew up in Northern California. He should work well as the team's WR3 behind Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin.

  49ers | Not interested in trading Alex Boone    Wed Aug 20, 06:01 PM

The San Francisco 49ers are not interested in trading OT Alex Boone, even though teams have inquired about him.

Footballguys view: The 49ers are a very disciplined organization. They don't give extensions or raises to players who holdout and trading a holdout would be seen a reward tantamount to giving in.

  49ers | Frank Gore not thinking about extension    Wed Aug 20, 05:01 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore said he is playing for a Super Bowl in 2014 and is not thinking about a contract extension. "This year I'm playing for a Super Bowl. I'm not even thinking about an extension," Gore said.

Footballguys view: Gore hasn't really showed signs of an imminent dropoff and he is still the lead back on a winning team that loves to run the ball. He's a value as an RB2 you can get in the 5th round or later because of his low weekly ceiling.

  49ers | Michael Crabtree didn't feel 100 percent in 2013    Wed Aug 20, 02:17 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree said he did not feel like himself when he returned from offseason Achilles' tendon surgery last season. 'I was fast enough to be on the field,' Crabtree said. 'But I wasn't me.' Crabtree looked like a No. 1 receiver this offseason before he suffered a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: That was to be expected, as Crabtree's injury happened late enough in the year that it wasn't even a sure thing that he'd play last year. The hardest part of Crabtree's valuation this year is weighing him being back in top form vs being in a run-first offense with three other viable targets.

  49ers | Glenn Dorsey terms    Wed Aug 20, 09:21 AM

Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers DT Glenn Dorsey's two-year extension has $6.075 million in new money, $1.75 million in new incentives and $2.575 million in guarantees. The maximum value of the deal is $10.957 million through 2016.

  49ers | Michael Crabtree extension before season?    Tue Aug 19, 07:51 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree's contract extension talks are reportedly progressing. The team hopes a deal can get done before the regular season begins.

Footballguys view: Crabtree is coming off of an injury-shortened year and the 49ers pass offense isn't exactly the place to put up eye-popping stats, but the 49ers are also a very financially disciplined organization. He is likely to get more on the open market.

  49ers | Colin Kaepernick played through foot injuries    Tue Aug 19, 11:36 AM

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick said his left foot sustained a bone chip on the forefoot and a ruptured capsule on the ball in Week 2 of last season. In the following four games, he averaged fewer than 16 rushing yards per contest. The Niners tried to reduce risk for him any way possible until he was at full strength. His production on the ground increased as he healed, and San Francisco allowed him to do designed runs in the postseason.

Footballguys view: This means Kaepernick has both rushing and passing upside this year. He's a fine QB1 if you can get him as the 10th off of the board or later, and he could threaten the top five this season with the best WR corps of his career around him in San Francisco.

  49ers | Josh X. Johnson may be No. 2 QB    Tue Aug 19, 04:48 AM

After another poor outing by San Francisco 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert, sources indicate there has been some talk about QB Josh X. Johnson being moved to the No. 2 slot behind QB Colin Kaepernick.

Footballguys view: Even Jim Harbaugh can't find some useful play in Gabbert's game. This is a good indication that no matter how physically talented a QB is, they won't make it even as a backup without some gumption.

  49ers | Lack of turnovers will determine backup QB    Sun Aug 17, 08:54 PM

The San Francisco 49ers will determine their backup quarterback by which candidate does not turn the ball over, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh. QBs Blaine Gabbert and McLeod Bethel-Thompson threw interceptions during the second preseason game, while QB Josh X. Johnson lost a fumble.

  49ers | Not looking for other QB options    Sun Aug 17, 07:34 PM

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said the team isn't looking for backup quarterbacks outside of the organization. QBs Blaine Gabbert and Josh X. Johnson are competing for the role.

Footballguys view: Gabbert has been terrible in the preseason, and Johnson has been below adequate as a passer during his pro career. The 49ers need to pray Colin Kaepernick plays sixteen games.

  49ers | Michael Crabtree practices in full    Sun Aug 17, 02:27 AM

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (hamstring) practiced in full for the first time Friday, Aug. 15. Crabtree was 230 pounds last season when he returned from a torn Achilles', but he is at 215 in this camp.

Footballguys view: Crabtree is ready to play some of the best football in his career, but the 49ers crowded passing game - which is not one of the prolific attacks in the league - might keep him from being more than a WR2 and introduce more variance to his week-to-week production.

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James (elbow) is no longer wearing a brace on his dislocated elbow and believes he is ready to play.

He will not play in the second preseason game but believes he can play in the final two preseason games.

San Francisco 49ers DE Justin Smith (shoulder) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 13. It was Smith's first practice of training camp after offseason shoulder surgery.

Footballguys view: Smith is as crucial as ever to a defense that will likely be without Navorro Bowman and Aldon Smith for most of the first half of the season. His return is welcome news for San Francisco.

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James (elbow) went through a full practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, for the first time since he dislocated his left elbow July 27. He was wearing a non-contact jersey.

Footballguys view: We're unsure if James is going to play on Sunday against the Broncos. If he's in a non-contact jersey, we would be surprised to see him in action this week.

San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 13.
