San Francisco 49ers wideout Joshua Morgan is running, even sprinting, again on his surgically repaired right leg that limited him to only five games in 2011 for the NFC West champions. Morgan broke a bone in his lower leg Oct. 9 against Tampa Bay and was placed on season-ending injured reserve. Leaving team headquarters Thursday, he declared, ''I'm back!'' while sporting his typical smile. While Morgan is set to become a free agent, coach Jim Harbaugh has said the team plans to bring him back. Morgan insists he'll be ready to sign the moment the team reaches out. The 26-year-old Morgan, a four-year veteran out of Virginia Tech, had 15 catches for 220 yards and one touchdown. Five of those catches came in that game with the Buccaneers.

49ers haven’t started contract talks with Alex Smith

Harbaugh's QB assessment not in line with Kaepernick

Somehow, Colin Kaepernick got the impression that the 49ers' QB position is "an open job." That's not the message from coach Jim Harbaugh, who continues to call Alex Smith his guy. All the Niners have to do is sign him.

So long, “Mount Pain”

Former 49ers coach Mike Singletary was into giving bombastic speeches. He like old school drills like the “Nutcracker.” His penchant for bold gestures was perhaps best symbolized by “Mt. Pain.” Singletary built a hill in 2009 at the 49ers practice facility for players to run up. Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee says Jim Harbaugh…

49ers give GM Trent Baalke an extension

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the San Francisco 49ers have given general manager Trent Baalke a three-year extension that will keep him in the bay area through the 2016 season.
