“Kyle Shanahan addressed his performance on a conference call Monday, saying Lance improved over the course of the performance.”
“Do not bet on McCloud being back for the season opener. Shanahan said he’s just part of that hopefully-back-for-Week-1 group, but that it’s probably an unlikely timeline.”
“He called the defensive plays from the second quarter onward and was aggressive as a tackler. He finished tied with fellow linebacker Marcelino McCrary-Ball with a team-high six tackles, including one in which he slipped beneath the Raiders guard to cut down tailback Sincere McCormick at the line of scrimmage.
The 49ers never intended to turn Graham, a 6-foot-2 former safety, into a middle linebacker. The more he plays there, however, the more comfortable he looks.”
“But there is also one unavoidable truth about Lance’s future with the 49ers: As much as he develops and improves, he might never get another chance with the team that traded up to draft him.”
“San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via a conference call on Monday, the day after the team’s 34-7 preseason loss against the Las Vegas Raiders. Here is everything he had to say.”
“The 49ers will hold practices on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in preparation for their second preseason game, a Saturday home matchup against the Denver Broncos.”
“Troy Fumagalli, TE, 90.8, 15 snaps.”
