The San Francisco 49ers don't seem too concerned with wide receiver A.J. Jenkins' slow start to the preseason.
Neither does Jenkins.
The team's 2012 first-round draft pick has impressed teammates and coaches alike with his hard work and big-play potential this summer. But after an unproductive rookie season, there are immediate expectations for Jenkins to start delivering in games.
He didn't in San Francisco's exhibition opener last week against Denver, when Jenkins lost a fumble after his only reception. Jenkins and the 49ers are looking for better results when the team travels to Kansas City for Friday's game against the Chiefs.

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.
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...
San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Demarcus Dobbs has been suspended for Week 1 against Green Bay for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.
The 49ers, in announcing the penalty Wednesday jointly with the NFL, say Dobbs will be eligible to return to the active roster on Sept. 9, a day after the reigning NFC champion Niners' season opener at home against the...

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.”
Colin Kaepernick is on the cover of September’s GQ, which by itself is not an altogether noteworthy occurrence. Nor is the fact that he appears on the cover shirtless and showing off his tattoos, which have been a bit of a thing over the past calendar year. But those facts won’t get in the way of a Fox Sports bro in search of HOT SPORTS TAKE. Do you even take, bro? Let’s all...
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...
This time, Colin Kaepernick will probably be more conscious of what he’s wearing.
This Fourth of July, the San Francisco quarterback drew the ire of 49ers fans when he was photographed wearing a Miami Dolphins cap. Kaepernick corrected the fashion faux pas by posting a photo of him in a 49ers cap to Instagram days later, but the damage was done.
Despite Kaepernick’s questionable...
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 tight end position is deep, but it is limited at the top. I have no problem waiting to take a tight end after the elite options come off the board. That doesn’t mean that this quartet won’t stand out from the crowd.

We welcome Randy Moss to the FOX Sports fold. You can catch him as part of the FOX Football Daily crew. The show debuts on Monday at 6 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1 (which, you may have heard, goes live on Saturday ).
Over the course of his 14-year career, Moss had a knack for the big play -- and big controversy. We'll just skim the surface a little bit here.
In his first game in...
