Mike Singletary did his players a solid, canceling Friday’s morning practice. But the team is back to work for a pad-less afternoon practice.
I’ll pass along practice highlights and observations as we go along. Currently the offense and defense are going over substitution procedures – the ones they’ll use this Sunday in the preseason home opener against the Minnesota Vikings.

The 49ers had the morning off on Friday, but the practice fields were still full of football.
The 49ers invited 50 girls from the Bay Area Women’s Sports Initiative (BAWSI, pronounced “bossy”) to their practice facility for the opportunity to participate in the Gatorade Jr. Training Camp drills on the practice fields.
Over the years, the 49ers have worked with BAWSI on several programs teach young women the importance of staying active and to help ensure they have opportunities to play sports.

It’s a pad-less afternoon practice for the 49ers on Wednesday. Special teams work is taking place at the moment, interior blocking, punt returning and form tackling by the gunners are all happening across the practice fields.

Mike Singletary’s Monday postgame press conference kept getting bumped back and now we know why. (Hint: it probably had something to do with the signing of Brian Westbrook to a one-year contract).
But once Singletary addressed the media with Westbrook at his side, the 49ers head coach had plenty of positive reviews from his team’s 37-17 road victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
