Francisco 49ers’ find themselves remarkably healthy heading into the first week
of the regular season. The defending NFC champs have only two names appearing
on their injury report as of Thursday evening. Unfortunately, both players can
be very effective and their status for this weekend is not looking good.
LaMichael James is the first player on the list. He has not practiced yet this
week and probably won’t be active this weekend against Green Bay. James finds
himself in a crowded backfield this season, but he brings a unique
explosiveness out of the backfield that the coaching staff finds intriguing.
Plus, he can bring a dynamic element to the 49ers’ special teams as a return
player on the 49ers’ injury report is veteran cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who
was acquired by San Francisco this offseason via free agency. Asomugha recently
won the 49ers’ No. 3 cornerback job and is expected to provide some veteran
leadership to an already talented secondary. Asomugha was limited in practice
both Wednesday and Thursday making his participation this weekend more likely.
