The 49ers had a long list of players that sat out of practice on Sunday. They included Fred Warner, Dre Greenlaw, and Javon Kinlaw. Robert Saleh said after practice that neither of those three was injured, which is a relief. Sunday was the final practice of training camp. The other players that did not practice Sunday:

TE George Kittle

FB Kyle Juszczyk

WR Brandon Aiyuk

DE Nick Bosa

DE Dee Ford

OL Ben Garland

DB K’Waun Williams

Deebo Samuel is getting closer. On the one hand, you don’t want him to hurry back as there is a chance Samuel can re-injure his foot. He was supposed to be out until the beginning of October, roughly. On the other hand, it’s evident that Samuel is progressing faster than the original injury timetable projected. We should treat every injury different, and if Samuel was around 75% last week, it’s not out of the question to assume he’ll be ready for Week 1, which is two weeks from now. NBC Sports’ Matt Maiocco tweeted that Samuel is itching to get back on the field.

Let’s look at some practice tweets, starting with the red zone drills:

After practice, Saleh said Garoppolo has been more decisive during training camp, meaning he knows where to go with the football. I’m not going to read into the touchdowns, and the same goes for Jimmy’s interceptions. It’s all about the process. If Garoppolo is throwing off his back foot, that’s a problem. If he’s getting the ball out of his hands allowing his receivers to run with the ball after the catch, terrific.

As for the team drills:

Do the 49ers go with the higher upside running back that has the make-you-miss ability, or do they continue to allow Wilson Jr. to develop? Wilson Jr. has sure hands and is the better runner, but Hasty is closer to Jerick McKinnon as a receiver than anyone else. Hasty’s a mismatch. That’s a tough decision that the team will have to make.

Tartt and Pettis were face-to-face and jawing at each other, but Tartt wouldn’t tell the media what was said afterward. The biggest takeaway here for me is that Pettis is competing and showing passion. Kyle Shanahan has to love that.
