The San Francisco 49ers will have a closed practice before their Denver Broncos preseason game. Jim Harbaugh lead off the press conference today and shared why he felt this preseason game is unique. Justin Smith and Andy Lee were also at the press conference.
Harbaugh seemed to be intrigued by the competition that there is on the team. Competition has always been a thing that he likes to have at every position. A.J. Jenkins and Ricardo Lockette are two guys that he will be watching and expecting to step up tomorrow. Jenkins may start on Thursday night. When asked about what he expects from him Harbaugh said; “He needs to go play and we have high expectations for him. The depth chart is a process. We have had twelve practices and now the preseason game.”
The last two practices have seen Jenkins get a lot of targets, more than any other receiver. Harbaugh stressed that game situations are the real times to step up and take a position. He is urging his players to do so tomorrow.
