49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh wasn’t pleased with how second-year receiver A.J. Jenkins played in last night’s preseason opener against the Broncos.  He ended up catching an 11 yard pass, but fumbled the ball away. “Uh, could have been better,” Harbaugh said, via CSNBayArea.com. “We got work to do in areas. When you turn the ball over four times, offensively, you have work to do.” 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick says they need to be able to rely on Jenkins. “That you have to come out and make plays. He is someone that we need to be able to rely on.” Jenkins isn’t trying to let his rough night get the best of him. “Hopefully, I’ve made some strides,” Jenkins said. “It’s the first preseason game. We have three more games left. It’s a long year. No need to panic and get all discouraged. Just got to keep watching film.” I was surprised to see the 49ers draft Jenkins in the first round last year and I’m still surprised now. Need NFL Tickets? Loading...
