Well, this is a new look.

The San Francisco 49ers are using some rather interesting (if that is the correct word to use here) new padded helmets for offensive and defensive linemen during practices. The team kicked off organized team activities (OTAs) this week, and Tuesday's session represents one of three practices that the media will be able to observe.

Matt Barrows of The Athletic posted the following video of the linemen's new headgear, most likely meant to minimize potential injuries.

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area provided a better look at the helmets.

San Francisco endured numerous injuries last season, which resulted in just six wins as a follow-up to the team's Super Bowl appearance the season before.

The other practices open to the media will be on Wednesday, June 2, and Tuesday, June 8.

Barrows' colleague, David Lombardi, posted the following video of the 49ers quarterbacks — Jimmy Garoppolo, Trey Lance, Josh Rosen, Nate Sudfeld, and Josh Johnson. Obviously, COVID protocols prohibit reporters from being too close to the players.

The plan is to enter the 2021 season with Garoppolo as the starter. That will allow Lance, the No. 3 overall pick, to sit and learn the playbook. The battle for the third quarterback job will be between Rosen, Sudfeld, and Johnson.

Below are some other random videos from practice.

Kyle Shanahan reveals how 49ers will plan for new-look Rams

The San Francisco 49ers had a dominant Week 1 performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers, kicking off the 2023 NFL season with a 30-7 win, picking up right where they left off with quarterback Brock Purdy healthy again following a torn UCL that ended his season in the NFC Championship Game last year. The 49ers were dominant to begin, shutting out the Pittsburgh Steelers on their first five drives with three-and-outs, while scoring on each of their first four opportunities, creating a quick 20-0 lead in the second quarter. However, the 49ers weren't the only team in the division to start strong, as the Los Angeles Rams easily defeated the Seattle Seahawks 30-13, riding the wave of quarterback Matthew Stafford, who, like Purdy, is back healthy for the 2023

The San Francisco 49ers signed Anthony Brown this week, and the cornerback is ready to help his new teammates defeat the New York Giants. However, that help may not come from Brown taking the field on Thursday night. Brown spent his first seven NFL seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, so he is familiar with the Niners' upcoming opponent, having played in the NFC East for many years. Brown was a starter for Dallas until suffering a torn Achilles in December. "Just getting here, so I'm just trying to basically tell the guys as much as I can, and if they have any questions on little tips and little pointers," Brown told Larry Krueger this week. "The Giants pretty much show up every week in their game plan, and trying to help the corners and DBs as much as I
