James Harden enjoys the 49ers pre-game

The 49ers return to prominence has given us a chance to find out which celebrities are fans of the team. LA-born James Harden is one such fan. He has made his fandom known in the past, and today he is getting a chance to visit with the team on the sideline. Harden met with 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh briefly before the game, and took time to speak with the media as well. Here are a couple pictures

I kinda wish I had taken some time to figure out who the celebrity fans were a few years back when the team was awful. Of course, given the 49ers storied history, there are plenty of notable fans that have been around the team over the years. It's just sometimes they disappear when things get ugly. For now though, 49ers fans are out in abundance as the team attempts to claim Lombardi No. 6.

Patrick Willis not wearing cast or brace

Eric Branch tweeted out some information that was at least a little bit interesting:

Earlier this week, Willis was seen at practice without an sort of contraption on his hand. Later in the week, Willis tweeted out a picture from Instagram in which he was thrusting his hand into a tub of rice.

As it currently stands, all indications are that he is good to go for the 49ers season opener against the Packers. The question will be how much we see of Willis. Last year, particularly in the season opener, the 49ers played a lot of their dime defense, with NaVorro Bowman handling a lot of the single linebacker role. If the 49ers elect to use a similar defensive alignment today, it would be an interesting way to keep Willis from exposing his hand too much.

We'll keep an eye on Willis throughout the game to see just how the 49ers decide to use him.
