There's no way (barring injury) Bruce Miller loses the starting FB job. The running game has really improved since Miller stepped in. Plus, he offers us more versatility on offense. If it ain't broke don't fix it!
Harbaugh has stated this when asked these question.
Do you have a sort of a philosophy on injuries? Some coaches decide that a player is a starter and he gets injured, he doesn't lose his starting job because of injury, what's your stance on that?
"No, I don't have that policy."
When do you expect FB Moran Norris back?
"There you go. Just ask the question [laughs]. We're going to hope for tomorrow. We'll hope that he can come out there tomorrow, and participate."
Well I'm going to go ahead and ask the question, has FB Bruce Miller done enough to hold onto his starting, or his top fullback job?"
He's done a great job. We're really pleased with what Bruce has done. And that he's improved every week too, which is really good. As far as when Moran is back and healthy, and they're both in there competing at the same time, we'll see who's playing better, who's practicing better, who gives us the better opportunity will dictate who will start."
