Several prominent members of the 49ers are yet to see any action this preseason, but head coach Mike Singletary said that will change when his team faces the Oakland Raiders on Saturday night.
Running backs Frank Gore and Brian Westbrook and wide receiver Michael Crabtree didn’t take the field during the team’s first two contests, but all three will be out there to showcase their talent in the third preseason game.
“I just want to see our guys continue to take another step, that’s all,” Singletary said after Thursday afternoon’s practice. “Just continue to execute and let’s continue the progression.”
Singletary said Gore will likely play one series, but maybe more depending on how his first series goes. Crabtree will play about one quarter, and Singletary did not specify how long Westbrook will be in the game.
Tight end Vernon Davis (knee) will not play.
Kick-off for Saturday’s game is set for 6:00 p.m. PDT. The broadcast on KBCW/CW 44 Cable 12 will be tape-delayed and will air at 9:00 p.m. PDT.
