Golden Nuggets: Seeing some rookies would be nice

Stacy Revere

Tuesday, November 27, 2012 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

I'll be honest, I thought rookie running back LaMichael James would have found his way onto the field by now. It's well documented that the jump from college to the NFL is easier for running backs than most other positions, and James is a dynamic playmaker. I have confidence in A.J. Jenkins as well, I just expected to see James. I suppose that the injuries to Kyle Williams and Kendall Hunter mean that we might be able to see both of them.

Obviously, I'd rather have Williams and Hunter, but I have to admit, the possibility of seeing the young players after some of the impact young guys have had on this team in recent years, ... that's pretty exciting. Or, this speculation is just off-base and we won't see any of them. So there's that.

Anyway, quick links for the day, Enjoy 'em.
