49ers practice report: B.J. Daniels actually in practice, Patrick Willis makes appearance [updated]

We break down the injury report heading into the 49ers first practice of Week 3 of the preseason.

Fooch's Note: Well, ignore the second paragraph. B.J. Daniels was not in pads for practice, but apparently it was just a fake-out. Per Matt Barrows, he's back in pads and practicing. Moving along......

The San Francisco 49ers returned to practice today, marking their first practice since defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 15-13. More importantly, this marks their first "post-training camp" practice. The 49ers wrapped up "training camp" this week, and now practices are closed to the media. The beat writers can watch warm-ups, but practice is subsequently closed to them.

The news coming out early on is that quarterback B.J. Daniels is not going to participate in team drills. The media spotted him working out in the weight room, and then saw him head out to the field in his jersey, but no shoulder pads. There is word on his issue, although there were tweets that it did not seem like a serious issue. They did not see this until after Jim Harbaugh met with the media, so there was no chance to ask for more details.

Patrick Willis was spotted working out on a side field. Willis was wearing shorts and shells, in what was described as his first time back on the field since his injury. He is still expected back for the start of the season.

Multiple reports from the media list I have on Twitter also indicate that Darcel McBath was in a walking boot, and Nate Stupar and Lamar Divens were not taking part in practice. Fullback Jason Schepler was in a blue non-contact jersey. There are no details on any of the injuries involved.

Fooch's Update: We've got a nice little picture of Jim Harbaugh throwing some passes to the running backs at the start of practice:
