The 49ers return to practice today, which means the return of coach and player press conferences. The 49ers have scheduled out four days worth of press conferences, although they are all subject to change based on injury and availability. Today features all defense with Vic Fangio, NaVorro Bowman and Carlos Rogers all chatting with the media. I've embedded a CSN Bay Area stream after the jump, but you can also watch over at 49ers.com.
Last week, when the defense had their day of press conferences, Donte Whitner was asked to describe meetings with Vic Fangio. This question came in light of the Gregg Williams meeting before the 49ers-Saints game. Whitner described Fangio as calm and not particularly nervous. While I've never been in a Fangio meeting, I can see him being in that eerily calm and confident state. We'll see if the media follows up on that in today's press conference.
Here is a rundown of this week's planned speakers. We'll have some updates afterward, and hopefully transcripts later today or first thing tomorrow:
Wednesday, August1 between 12-1pm
Defensive Coordinator Vic Fangio
LB NaVorro Bowman
CB Carlos Rogers
Friday, August 3 between 12-1pm
