San Francisco 49ers safety Adrian Colbert was mic'd up for the second day of the team's mandatory minicamp. You can check out the video below.



As expected, the Niners' starting free safety spends as much time talking as he does practicing. Colbert even gets into a little nickname discussion, which -- along with administering crushing hits on opposing wide receivers -- is one of the second-year defender's claims to fame:


In addition to Colbert, a number of key players make cameos in the video, including linebacker Reuben Foster, who demonstrates why he's an unlikely candidate to take over the team's punt-return duties this season.

Wide receiver Pierre Garçon also makes an appearance, showcasing his quickness -- and his recovery from last season's neck injury -- with a reception on a drag route.

Overall, the team appears to be loose and having fun during the 49ers' second minicamp practice.

If you missed it, fellow defensive back Richard Sherman was mic'd up for the first day of mandatory minicamp. You can check out Sherman's return to the practice field here.

16 observations from the 49ers' gut-wrenching loss on Sunday

By Marc Adams
Oct 4

The San Francisco 49ers lost another heart-breaker on Sunday, this time to the hated Seattle Seahawks, falling 28-21. The offense was scorching hot on its first drive. The defense was dominant for most of the first half, particularly the first five series. After those five series, the Seahawks offense netted negative yards. But the 49ers' offense failed to capitalize, and as a result, only had a 7-0 lead before momentum started to shift. And now, much of the fanbase has turned on head coach Kyle Shanahan. Some are calling for his job. How soon we forget some of the inept coaches the 49ers have had in the past. Dennis Erickson, Mike Nolan, Mike Singeltary, Jim Tomsula, and Chip Kelly all



Why ESPN's Graziano believes we'll see Jimmy Garoppolo as the 49ers starter again

Even Jimmy Garoppolo expects to be sidelined for a bit. Today, an MRI will reveal the severity of his latest injury and how long the San Francisco 49ers quarterback will be out. "It feels like just the calf right now, but I'm hopeful it will just be a couple of weeks or something like that," Garoppolo told reporters after Sunday's 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Of course, a segment of the fanbase is welcoming a transition from Garoppolo to Trey Lance, feeling the rookie quarterback can spark the offense. However, don't assume that we have seen the last of Garoppolo on the field for the 49ers, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has made it clear that Lance is

Today, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via a conference call. His team is coming off a 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and fell to 2-2 on the season.
