The San Francisco 49ers released their Friday practice report and it has some notable improvements from Thursday. Center Weston Richburg and tackle Joe Staley were able to be upgraded to limited Friday after being held out on Thursday. Given that Joshua Garnett was a full participant on Thursday and Friday http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-kyle-juszczyk-jersey
, the 49ers offensive line is in the right direction. They are a long ways away from complete recovery, but with how banged up it got during the Arizona Cardinals, it’s nice to know things are getting better.The skill position players still were held out. Wide receivers Trent Taylor, Pierre Gar莽on, Dante Pettisand running back Matt Breida were listed as DNP’s for Thursday and Friday. Pettis has already been ruled out and Matt Breida is heading in that direction as well. Taylor has been dealing with some lingering effects from his back surgery as Kyle Shanahan indicated in a recent press conference.

He’s got serious speed (4.39 40 at his college Pro Day), and Cheetah rhymes with the pronunciation of his last name. It’s pretty simple.Enter Tyreek Hill. The Kansas City Chiefs burner wide receiver is nicknamed Cheetah http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-joe-staley-jersey
, and in fact, his Twitter handle is simply @cheetah. He ran a 4.29 40 at his college Pro Day, and regularly shows up on the NFL highlight reels with his big plays — with the peace sign thrown in when he’s really burned a defensive back.Naturally, with the 49ers traveling to face the Chiefs this weekend, Hill was asked about the 49ers Cheetah. Hill said there’s only one cheetah in the NFL http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-marquise-goodwin-jersey
, and “You can’t be a cheetah and run a 4.48, or whatever you run.” He did offer some praise for Breida.Breida might be asked about the comments, but he’s a pretty low key guy. I don’t expect much in the way of a response from the 49ers running back when it comes to smack talk.Fortunately, Marquise Goodwin was willing to offer up some smack talk about his own speed. Goodwin has competed in both track and field events, earning a spot in the Olympics as a long jumper. He’s viewed as the fastest guy on the team Youth Brock Coyle Jersey
, and he had a perfect comment when asked to compare himself with Hill.The 49ers offense would love to have Goodwin back on the field for Sunday’s matchup. He is going to be listed as limited for Wednesday’s practice as he continues rehabbing a thigh bruise. He was a DNP all last week, so this is an upgrade.Given how prolific the Chiefs offense has been through two weeks, the 49ers will need every offensive weapon they can muster. We’ve seen Dante Pettis slowly emerging while Goodwin has been out. Add a deep threat like Goodwin back into the mix, and this offense could take an important step forward.
