Tomsula said that he would not consider any in-season changes to the offensive staff. As for changes at quarterback, Tomsula stated "Colin [Kaepernick] is our quarterback." There is no quarterback controversy.

Kaepernick's thumb, which was injured during the game, has swelled up. However, it is not believed to be anything serious.

Antoine Bethea is at Stanford getting an MRI on his shoulder/chest. The severity of the injury is not yet known and the team has to await the results, which will come back sometime today.

Jaquiski Tartt suffered a leg contusion, but was walking fine around the facility today.

Kenneth Acker had cramps. There was nothing serious there.

The severity of Hyde's injury is still now know.

49ers and Trey Lance: There's a storm brewing in The Bay

Second-year San Francisco 49ers QB Trey Lance is mentally and physically preparing for war. During organized team activities (OTAs) and mini-camp, we heard from Lance, his coaches, and most importantly, his teammates. The commonality in what they shared about the young quarterback was his confidence and leadership. How does a young kid who didn't see much playing time during his rookie season prepare for year two? It's simply his confidence. Confidence isn't something you develop overnight. Instead, it's something that evolves through adversity. Lance received a Division I scholarship to the University of Minnesota to play linebacker. However, he wanted to play quarterback, so he took his talents to North Dakota State, where he red-shirted his freshman season

The positive reports surrounding the No. 3 overall pick in last year's NFL Draft keep pouring out from Santa Clara. There was a lot of chatter about the San Francisco 49ers having doubts about second-year quarterback Trey Lance as he prepares to become the team's full-time starter. That chatter lessened once the offseason program kicked off, and reporters got closer looks at the quarterback's progress.

Many believe the Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch connection starts with Lynch, a Hall of Fame safety, having played for Shanahan's father in Denver. However, the 49ers general manager believes their team-building philosophy actually started with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While there was no overlap between Lynch's time playing for Tampa Bay and the 49ers head coach's time as a quality control coach there, the time with the Buccaneers helped mold how the two would create San Francisco's roster upon taking it over in 2017. "In Tampa, clearly, things started up front," Lynch explained during the 49ers' State of the Franchise event. "That was very much the philosophy, and it's easy to have that philosophy when you have guys like Warren Sapp and Simeon Rice. It helped win us



49ers explain why they hit the mark on Oren Burks, Ray-Ray McCloud, and George Odum signings

The offseason free agent additions by the 49ers of linebacker Oren Burks, wide receiver/return specialist Ray-Ray McCloud and safety George Odum may not have generated a huge amount of buzz among the team's fans, but 49ers coaches couldn't be more excited with the fact they were able to add all three of those players to the roster. That's because the 49ers headed into the offseason with a desire to improve on special teams while adding depth at each one of those positions, and Burks, McCloud and Odum were highly-ranked targets for the 49ers in each area. And so far, each player has exceeded the expectations surrounding them when they were brought aboard. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and special teams coordinator Brian Schneider spoke during the team's recent
