The 49ers were in shells again Wednesday, their last open practice before getting on a plane Thursday night for Kansas City to play their second preseason game. Left tackle Joe Staley returned to action for the first time in a week as the team had a relaxed but competitive practice heavy on 11-on-11 drills. Lawrence Okoye capped the day with a dance.

A.J. Jenkins was the Niners' first-round selection just 18 months ago, and even though the team is desperate for receivers at the moment, his roster spot is reportedly still in jeopardy.
Previously on day 13 of San Francisco 49ers training camp, Colin Kaepernick put on an offensive show. On day 14, the 49ers’ defense dominated the practice field. Kaepernick was sacked five times, rookie cornerback Marcus Cooper intercepted Kaepernick on a pass intended for Kyle Williams, and rookie cornerback Darryl Morris defended two Kaepernick passes to A.J. Jenkins...
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed that rookie tight end Vance McDonald will be out for the next seven to ten days with an undisclosed injury.
This means McDonald will miss this week’s preseason game and should be back for their week three match up against the Vikings.
So far during camp, McDonald has struggled with pass blocking...

There will be some hard feelings and extra motivation when Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith faces his old team, the San Francisco 49ers. Smith is mostly concerned about running his new offense in his second preseason start. It's only the preseason, but the team Smith used to against in practice every day, will actually get to get a chance to hit him now.
Colin Kaepernick took the NFL by storm last season after taking over for Alex Smith, and doesn’t appear to be easing up anytime sooner.
Kaepernick brings the dynamic of speed, strength, a strong-arm, and excitement to the quarterback position. Kaepernick told the Sporting News that his most important dynamic, “his mental approach to the game, is underestimated.”
Whenever Forbes another list about the most valuable sports franchises it’s like whatever. We get to see how the rich got richer. We yell at our computer screens to see the Cowboys once again listed at the very top. None of it matters on the actual playing field.
That said, hey, everybody, the 49ers are the 10th most valuable team in the NFL!
Forbes came out with its latest NFL...
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Over all those years and thousands of practice snaps, the stingy San Francisco defense never got to put a hit on Alex Smith.
And this is a group known for its vicious blows, from sack man Aldon Smith at linebacker to pounding safety Donte Whitner.
So, no surprise Smith's former teammates on the opposite side of the ball will be salivating to finally...
Week 2 of the NFL Preseason brings a few more snaps for the starters, and position battles begin to develop for the final spots on the roster. The San Francisco 49ers have played in the past two NFC Championship games, but you can still make the argument that they are starting a new chapter. This will be the first full season for starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick after he replaced...
The Colin Kaepernick-Vernon Davis connection continues to dazzle. They hooked up on a pretty 40-yard touchdown pass down the middle. Kaepernick who is sometimes criticized for his lack of touch dropped a beautiful pass into Davis between Carlos Rogers and Craig Dahl on another play. Rookie Vance McDonald did not practice after hardly participating on Saturday however Garrett Celek...
