It’s almost game day! The San Francisco 49ers travel to face the Minnesota Vikings this weekend, and we are less than 48 hours away from kickoff. The game gets going at 10 a.m. PT on Sunday, and the team closes out their Santa Clara practice week today.
The team gets an early practice in, hitting the field at 11:45 a.m. Head coach Kyle Shanahan will meet with the media after that, tentatively scheduled for 1 p.m. We’ll get the final injury report, and Shanahan should have some updates on Malcolm Smith, Jimmie Ward, and Garry Gilliam. The locker room will be open after Shanahan’s press conference and then the team will depart for Minneapolis.
The 49ers will stream the press conferences Twitter, Facebook, and the team’s app. The 49ers beat writers will also have updates from the media sessions. I’ve embedded our beat writer Twitter list so you can follow along. We’ll have transcripts later today.
