Yesterday was the annual Fan Fest at Candlestick Park. Coach Harbaugh categorized the practice as 'raggedy'. While it may not jive with Harbaugh's ideals, it is great for the fans to get to watch the team in action. Kendall Hunter was activated from the PUP list. Coach Harbaugh has said he won't be handed his job as No. 2 RB back automatically. You'll notice these Nuggets are way late so I'm keeping it as short as humanly possible.

Not only was Goodwin back in the mix, Justin Smith was back. The other player I'm dying to see in action is Quinton Patton. He was tabbed by many to be in the mix for a starting role. He's yet to catch a pass due to a hurt finger. | Training camp D12: Harbaugh not happy with "raggedy" effort; Goodwin, Justin Smith return (Barrows)

Kendall Hunter

After the poor showing by the backs fighting for the last roster spots in the game against Denver, it's extremely comforting to get Kendall Hunter back. Returnees LaMichael James and Anthony Dixon showed why they have every reason to be on the roster, the rest, well... | Report: 49ers activate Kendall Hunter from PUP list (Gin)
