While the rest of America gets ready for the best meal of the year, the 49ers are working hard at team headquarters on Thanksgiving. Members of the team recently helped out Second Harvest Food Bank by serving food to local residents. Thanksgiving also brings memories of one of the greatest Joe Shows of all-time from 2009, when Pro Bowl LT Joe Staley talked turkey and Ricky Jean Francois debuted his PBJ dance on 49ers.com.
Before you gobble, gobble your turkey, you probably want to read the latest headlines on the 49ers quarterback situation. While Jim Harbaugh and the team aren’t expected to announce their decision until game, conflicting reports surfaced on Twitter Wednesday night regarding Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick.
Smith was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday as he tries to recover from a concussion he suffered in the Week 10 24-24 tie with St. Louis. Kaepernick is coming off a strong performance in his first NFL start, as he led the 49ers to an impressive 32-7 win over the highly-touted Bears on “Monday Night Football.”
