Team likes what they see in Gilmore

The San Francisco 49ers like what they see in WR Bryan Gilmore. The 49ers signed Gilmore on the recommendation of receivers coach Jerry Sullivan, who coached Gilmore with Arizona and Miami. "In meeting with him, the thing that stood out is his desire to establish himself as a wide receiver," head coach Mike Nolan said Wednesday, Aug. 2. "He's been called a good special-teams player and he wants to change that a little bit, and that's good. That shows some motivation on his part." Gilmore has flashed speed and precision running routes in practice. Nolan added that Gilmore's strong showing at training camp has made him the leading contender to be the No.3 receiver, behind starters WRs Arnaz Battle and Antonio Bryant.

Deebo at RB? Jennings at FB? Why the position changes can even confuse 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel played 10 snaps in the backfield, rushing eight times for 79 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He wasn't the only receiver that lined up in the backfield. Jauan Jennings had one snap as a fullback. And let's not forget Trent Williams, who was an eligible receiver on one play. However, it's not like he lined up on the outside. And everyone knew Jimmy Garoppolo was likely going to look in the big offensive lineman's direction, leading to the defense being aggressive with him on coverage. Head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR on Wednesday afternoon and explained why playing some of his guys out of position, as

If you were planning to travel for the San Francisco 49ers' road game against the Cincinnati Bengals on December 12, you might want to note that the kickoff time for the Week 14 matchup has changed. On Tuesday, the NFL announced a few schedule changes, including moving 49ers-Bengals from its original 10:00 a.m. PT (1:00 p.m. ET) kickoff to 1:25 p.m. PT (4:25 p.m. ET). However, nothing else about the game has changed. It will still take place on Sunday, December 12, and CBS will still broadcast the game. The two other announced schedule changes are the Week 14 New Orleans Saints at New York Jets game moving to CBS and the Week 15 Green Bay at Baltimore Ravens game moving its kickoff time from 10:00 a.m. PT (1:00 p.m. ET) to 1:25 p.m. PT (4:25 p.m. ET) on

Nov 29

The San Francisco 49ers aren't too concerned about the injuries that wide receiver Deebo Samuel and linebacker Fred Warner sustained during Sunday's 34-26 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Samuel exited the game due to a groin injury. A hamstring injury sidelined Warner. On Monday morning, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Samuel's setback is "not considered a major injury," but that the team's leading receiver is expected to "miss a little time." That more than likely rules Samuel out for Sunday's Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler provided an update on both players, who received MRIs on Monday morning. The reporter states

Several San Francisco 49ers players exited with injuries on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Two of the team's best players, wide receiver Deebo Samuel and linebacker Fred Warner, were among those who left the game. Samuel is dealing with a groin injury, while Warner is dealing with a hamstring injury. Head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that Samuel and Warner would undergo MRIs to determine the severity of the injuries. While Samuel was clearly disheartened by his injury, the coach sounded optimistic that it may not be a serious setback. "I think he was just disappointed," Shanahan said. "We have no idea what it's going to be like. I don't think it's as bad as you worry. We're hoping it's a little strain, and he feels that it might be. He felt
