Jim Harbaugh is fired up

Jim Harbaugh was just a little bit fired up after the 49ers preseason win over the San Diego Chargers.

Cam Johnson punt block might just about lock it up

If there was any question about Cam Johnson's bubble status, he might have answered it Thursday evening. With a quarter left to play, Cam Johnson has two sacks, multiple quarterback pressures, and added a beautiful punt block near the end of the third quarter. Johnson burst through to block the punt, and then recovered the loose ball in the end zone for the touchdown. The score gave the 49ers a 27-6 lead. Here is a GIF of the block.


Prior to Thursday's game, Johnson was firmly on the roster bubble. The 49ers decision to trade Parys Haralson could be seen as a vote of confidence for the remaining outside linebackers, but Johnson was still potentially behind Corey Lemonier and Dan Skuta. After Thursday's game, if the 49ers were hoping to slide Johnson to the practice squad, they might have lost any such opportunity.

The big question is if they would have enough playing opportunities for the trio of outside linebackers. I suspect one of them would be inactive many Sundays, but it will depend in part on how the 49ers stock their special teams units. For now though, Johnson cannot do much else.

James, Snyder on first half injury report

Fooch's Update 2: We've got a timeline for his return

Fooch's Update: LaMichael James suffered MCL sprain

The San Francisco 49ers are halfway through their preseason finale, and they have a couple injuries of note. LaMichael James left the game and had ice on his knee. Adam Snyder left the game and went back to the locker-room to get an x-ray on his hand. By the end of the first half, James was seen without the ice, and a team spokesperson told the media that it was not serious. There is no further word yet on Snyder's hand.

Although it might surprise some, losing Adam Snyder would be the bigger loss in the short term. Although James has great athleticism, and can do some big things in space, Snyder is the primary backup at tackle and potentially at guard. Daniel Kilgore is the primary backup at center, but Snyder will likely get some chances as an extra lineman.

The 49ers head into the second half leading 17-6.

10 of 11 defensive starters sitting in finale

The San Francisco 49ers are wrapping up their 2013 preseason schedule, and as is often the case, there will be numerous starters not taking part in the game. According to the beat writers in attendance, Eric Reid, Donte Whitner, Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown, Aldon Smith, NaVorro Bowman, Ahmad Brooks, Ray McDonald and Justin Smith are all sitting out on the defensive side of the ball. That leaves Ian Williams in the lineup, and everybody else will be backups.

Matt Maiocco tweeted that Anquan Boldin would also sit out. He also said that Colin Kaepernick and LaMichael James were in uniform and warming up, but there was no word on if they would play. Odds are pretty slim Kaepernick sees the field, and I would imagine the same would hold true for LaMichael James. While Kaepernick would be held out to keep him healthy, James would be held out in part because of health and in part because he's gotten plenty of preseason work.

Most interesting might be that there is no sign of Seneca Wallace at warmups. I imagine he will play, but we'll see what's up exactly as the game approaches.

Fooch's Update:

Gotta love paying full price for this.
