Golden Nuggets: Stay free of injuries, 49ers

Al Messerschmidt

Friday, December 20th, 2013 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning ladies and gents. So we've had more talk about Jim Harbaugh and his contract and all of that to distract us this week, but wouldn't you know it, there's a football game coming up this weekend. The Atlanta Falcons aren't nearly as good as they expected to be this season, but they shouldn't be overlooked by any stretch of the imagination.

Still, the most important thing for this matchup, to me, is to stay healthy. Our San Francisco 49ers are about as healthy as a team could hope to be so late in the regular season, and getting an injury in this game would be ... just awful. Some guys are banged up to be sure, but heading into the playoffs, the 49ers probably couldn't ask for a better bill of health.

Stay healthy, guys. Onto the links for the day.
