49ers players checking out field surface at Levi's Stadium

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers had to replace a huge portion of the sod at Levi's Stadium. On Sunday before their preseason game with the Chargers, players were checking it out.

The San Francisco 49ers will kick off at 1 p.m. PT, which means players are out warming up and checking out the field. The 49ers installed new turf Thursday and Friday, which means players will need to figure out what it means come game time.

Phil Dawson was reportedly out kicking three and a half hours before the game, and other players have since made their way out. Cam Inman and other beat writers tweeted out some pictures and thoughts on the subject. It will be interesting to see how the field looks in the third and fourth quarter after a few marches back and forth. Well, we're hoping the 49ers do some marching on it!
