And so begins the parade of coaches and players for the media. NFC Championship Game week means extra media, although it is of course only a minor precursor to the onslaught of the Super Bowl. The 49ers get started today at 11:55 a.m. PT, with head coach Jim Harbaugh, QB Colin Kaepernick, LB Patrick Willis and DL Justin Smith.
Ideally we'll have an update on Joe Staley's arm, but that info probably won't be more available until the first practice participation report of the week is released this afternoon. In the meantime, Coach Harbaugh can bounce around that one. I would also imagine Justin Smith will basically say that he is good to go for Sunday and has no concerns about his triceps muscle.
