Pre-Game II Post-Game News

The Niners made some moves to get to the 80-man limit yesterday, including releasing:

DL Shilique Calhoun
CB B.W. Webb

The following guys have been waived:

WR River Cracraft
OL Corbin Kaufusi

And the Mychal Kendricks Experience has been a short-lived one as he has been put on the IR. Maybe his Band of Gypsies will make a come-back in October.

This upcoming game with the Las Vegasangeles Raiders will supposedly have a lot more starters than in recent games, but who and for how long has not been shared by the powers-that-be. The murmurings say that they may play the entire 1st half, but that will be something to see on game-day Sunday.

Something I just happened to notice is that without the 4th preseason game, there is a 2 week break between the last pre-season game and the opening of the regular season.

Odd, but I guess it will help the players that they get a break before the real action starts.

    Week 3 was always the Mendoza line for conditioning.
    It’s the final tape op too.
    This gives us the opportunity to shape Trade deals and eval of other rosters.
    I suspect we’re going to be dealing with Saleh.

    I doubt any starters will see any extended playing time this week. There is just too much risk for injury. Since there is only 3 PS games now I think it’s the final curtain for a bunch of players. I would love to see Ford go to the Jets but I doubt it will happen. I like Saleh but I wouldn’t give him a familiarity discount. Trade us a 2nd and take his salary and I would be good to go.

    Winder..No way No how would they get a 2nd rounder for Ford.He’s at best a 5th more like a 6th with his recent injury history.They might as well just keep him and anything they get out of him is gravy..

    • Winder says:

      Yeah, they would have to be pretty desperate but if Ford could stay healthy he’s actually worth it.

    Injury report: Left tackle Trent Williams (knee), defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw (shoulder), wide receiver Jalen Hurd (knee), cornerback Emmanuel Moseley (hamstring) and running backs Elijah Mitchell (hip) and Trey Sermon (ankle) all returned to practice.

    Hurd practicing? Good news that Williams is back. And Moseley.

    • Winder says:

      That is good, 3 starters and 3 backups. i am still rooting for Hurd but not holding my breath.

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Yep. He has to know the system even if he hasn’t practiced in it much.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah. Makes sense. Harbaugh did it with Smith and Kap when Smith was the starter. It kinda worked, but I have much more faith in Kyle’s ability to manage the offense than Snappy Khaki did.

    Fake the read-option, which most defenses would expect, and go deep. Trey’s arm is huge. Deebo or Aiyukk can get open..

  7. alleykat69 says:

    Think they resigned River runs through him Cracraft and waived Richie James.
    Wonder if they would use Ayiuk as their punt returner?

  8. alleykat69 says:

    Yeah Winder I think it’s Nsimba Webster?
    They have used him in Kickoffs why not punt returns? Think he played for the Rams like u mentioned..

  9. NJ49ER says:

    Richie will likely clear waivers as hes’ headed for knee surgery –
    He’ll revert back to us on IR most likely.

    The LosVegasLand Raiders come to town!
