Kevin Lynch of the Chronicle reports the 49ers have a renewed interest in Cleveland quarterback Trent Dilfer, whom they nearly traded for last year. One NFL source said the 49ers might have made an offer for Dilfer on Sunday if the Browns could have swung a deal for Lions quarterback Joey Harrington. Cleveland apparently doesn't want to trade Dilfer unless they it has a veteran replacement to compete with Charlie Frye.

The San Francisco 49ers have lost three consecutive games and look to turn their season around on Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts. At 2-3, the team finds itself looking up at the division-leading Arizona Cardinals (6-0) and Los Angeles Rams (5-1). The Niners have lost to the Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks and have yet to play the Rams. Williams says there is no panic in the building. The team knows the locker room is talented enough to rebound on its own. "We're not waiting for somebody to walk through the door," Williams told reporters after today's practice. "We've got all the talent we need in-house. ... We've just got to put it all together on Sunday." San Francisco still has four division matchups remaining. There remains a chance

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before today's practice. He informed the media that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be practicing but be limited. Rookie Trey Lance won't practice as he continues to recover from his injury. "It will be good to go out there and be full-go today," Shanahan said of Garoppolo. "I know he's limited because we've got to make sure he can do everything. We'll have a much better idea today, but I'm pretty optimistic about it." Garoppolo is returning from a calf injury suffered in a game against the Seattle Seahawks on October 3. Lance replaced the veteran quarterback in the game and then started the following weekend against the Arizona Cardinals, sustaining a knee sprain. The rookie quarterback's

Here are two San Francisco 49ers-related storylines that might interest you. Both involve veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. He will start against the Indianapolis Colts this weekend, returning from the calf injury sustained on October 3. While Garoppolo is the 49ers' starter this season, the team drafted his successor, Trey Lance, in April. San Francisco will have a decision to make on Garoppolo after this season. Some wonder if the team might even look at opportunities before the November 2 trade deadline. Former Patriots teammate bashes Jimmy Garoppolo Don't count former New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett among Garoppolo's biggest fans.

Levi's Stadium is expected to be drenched from a downpour of rain when the San Francisco 49ers host the Indianapolis Colts tonight. The anticipation of rain will often lead to coaches holding wet-ball drills during practices. Head coach Kyle Shanahan doesn't believe in doing that, however, and explained why this week. "I bring it up and talk to the players about it," Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area. "So, they're all thinking about it mentally so they can get ready however it effects them. I know, at least when I played football, when I thought about the rain is when I dropped everything. So I try to not think about it, and try to catch it the same, try to do stuff. And I always felt, mentally, that was a lot better. You always thought it might slip and stuff, and you get
