Battle does not practice Wednesday morning

San Francisco 49ers WR Arnaz Battle (knee) was held out of Wednesday morning's contact practice, Aug. 2, because of a recurrence of swelling in his right knee. The 49ers had limited Battle to one practice per day during camp in an attempt to manage the injury, but it cropped up again after Tuesday's workout, Aug. 1.

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.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan shares George Kittle story while discussing player honesty regarding injuries

By David Bonilla

Kyle Shanahan has noticed many changes since transitioning from an offensive coordinator to the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. One that he maybe didn't expect to be so drastic is how honest his players are with him when it comes to injuries, even when he hopes for complete honesty. Shanahan is one of the team's top decision-makers. That means his players look to impress him with their toughness. In their minds, that means pushing through certain injuries to be available. Shanahan joined KNBR this week and was asked to estimate what percentage of his players are actually honest with him regarding the severity of their injuries. The answer was surprisingly low. As a head coach, Shanahan figures that only about five percent are completely honest. That number

The San Francisco 49ers finished Sunday's game without two of their best defenders. Pass rusher Nick Bosa left the game at the end of the first half and was ruled out with a concussion. Linebacker Fred Warner exited the second half and did not return due to an ankle injury. "On Nick Bosa's concussion, my information is that I cannot speculate on a concussion," NFL insider Ian Rapoport said Monday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "And it's not just me. It's impossible. Teammates sounded like he was talking in the locker room and OK, but that doesn't actually mean anything because everyone recovers from concussions differently, and you can't tough it out." Bosa has hurdles to get past to play in Saturday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers,

Jimmy Garoppolo was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, the San Francisco 49ers' second of the week. That's good news for the quarterback's availability against the Green Bay Packers this weekend. Not that there was ever any doubt that Garoppolo would play. He is pretty banged up, though. Not only has Garoppolo been dealing with the pain of throwing with a torn ligament in his right thumb, but now, he is dealing with a right shoulder sprain. Saturday's playoff game will be a challenge. San Francisco is going against the top-seeded Packers, but Green Bay is well-rested while the 49ers have to prepare on a short week. Oh, and that game is at frigid Lambeau Field—at night. Garoppolo suffered his shoulder injury during Sunday's playoff win over the
