The 49ers are just three days away from their preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers (8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT, Friday), a game that will give 49ers fans the chance to see a number of their team's players in on-field action for the first time. Two particular newcomers of interest to keep an eye on Friday night will be offensive lineman Spencer Burford and wide receiver/return specialist Ray-Ray McCloud.

Mariucci asked Shanahan where Lance fits when comparing the 22-year-old passer to those different types of guys. "That's what I enjoyed watching him in college so much for because you were able to see both [skill sets]," Shanahan responded. "It was at a much lesser level, and it was only for a year of football, so you didn't have a ton to go off of, but you saw, the offense that they

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters ahead of Friday's practice, providing some injury updates during the conversation. First, he revealed that offensive lineman Jaylon Moore would miss some time with a lower leg strain. The other injury was to wide receiver Marcus Johnson, who is in the concussion protocol. The injury occurred on Tuesday, the same day as the brawls between linebacker Fred Warner and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. According Shanahan, Johnson was the recipient of a big hit from the star linebacker, causing the injury and sparking the scuffle. "I love the intensity of it, but I don't think you have to fight to be intense, though," Shanahan said of the brawls. "Scuffles are scuffles. Then
