The entire 49ers roster got into pads today for the first time in training camp, and the team is likely dealing with a couple small issues. Quinton Patton is still apparently getting over a hand issue, and Kyle Williams may have "tweaked" his hamstring, per Cam Inman.
Through the first three full practices of training camp, Patton has been wearing a blue non-contact jersey. Today, it sounds like he had a soft cast on his left hand. Eric Branch tweeted that the cast was covering his index and middle fingers. The tweets about the cast were the first we have heard of anything this specific. Previously, it just sounded like Patton was wearing the non-contact jersey without any further explanation. Also, according to Matt Maiocco, the blue non-contact jersey could mean he cannot be the target of pass attempts.
Cam Inman tweeted that Kyle Williams caught a touchdown pass, but after landing on his repaired left knee, he had a trainer check out his right hamstring. He remained on the field, but did not take part in 11-on-11 work. After practice, Williams said he was good, and that his left knee also feels OK. He then tweeted this out:
I'm fine!! Good day of work for us first day in the pads!— Kyle Williams (@KyleWilliams_10) July 28, 2013
We'll see if the team rolls him out like normal for practice tomorrow, or if he takes a day to make sure everything is proper.
Coach Harbaugh will be meeting with the media tomorrow, and I imagine will get some questions about Patton and Williams. I imagine we won't get much more than a "They're working through something" from Coach Harbaugh.
