Gore, Manningham return to full practice

SANTA CLARA -- Running back Frank Gore and wide receiver Mario Manningham returned to full practice Thursday and look as if they will be unlimited in the 49ers' game Monday night at the Arizona Cardinals.Gore, who sustained bruised ribs in the first half of 49ers' 13-6 victory Oct. 18 against the Seattle Seahawks, was removed from the game in the middle of the fourth quarter. He told CSNBayArea.com that he is feeling fine.
Manningham did not suit up against the Seahawks after sustaining a right shoulder injury in the previous game against the New York Giants.For the first time all season, running back Brandon Jacobs was not listed on the injury report. Jacobs has not seen action in a game since sustaining a left knee strain Aug. 18 in the exhibition season.Left tackle Joe Staley is the only 49ers player who did not participate fully in practice. He was out with an undisclosed illness.Quarterback Alex Smith, who sustained a sprain to the middle finger on his throwing hand on Oct. 7 against the Buffalo Bills, said the extended time between games has helped his finger improve. Smith has not missed any practice time due to the injury."It's getting better every week," Smith said. "It's just something you deal with. It's not something I think about a whole lot out there -- try not to."

49ers freeze ticket prices for 2017, 2018 seasons

The 49ers on Tuesday informed season ticket holders that ticket prices will not increase for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. 

"We are announcing that 49ers season ticket pricing will be frozen through the 2018 season," the team wrote in an email to its season ticket holder. "Invoices for your 2017 season tickets will be made available to view and pay online in the coming weeks, including the option to enroll in a multi-month payment plan."

"Thank you for your valued and continued support as a 49ers Season Ticket Member. We look forward to serving you this season!"

The 49ers will enter the 2017 season with a new general manager and head coach after firing both Trent Baalke and Chip Kelly following their 2-14 2016 season.

McDonough, Paton scheduled for second interviews for 49ers' GM job

McDonough, Paton scheduled for second interviews for 49ers' GM job

Arizona vice president of player personnel Terry McDonough and Minnesota assistant general manager George Paton are scheduled for second interviews for the 49ers’ general manager position, a league source confirmed to CSNBayArea.com.

The Atlanta Falcons have provided 49ers executives Jed York and Paraag Marathe time to meet with presumptive head coach Kyle Shanahan from Friday afternoon through all day Saturday. The Falcons are scheduled to travel on Sunday to Houston, site of Super Bowl 51. The interviews with McDonough and Paton are expected to be held on Saturday in Atlanta.

Shanahan, the Falcons’ offensive coordinator, is not allowed to be officially hired as 49ers coach until after the Falcons play in Super Bowl 51 against the New England Patriots. But Shanahan is expected to take part in the process Saturday in which the 49ers will arrive at a decision on their next general manager.

The 49ers announced the firings of coach Chip Kelly and general manager Trent Baalke shortly after the team’s 2-14 season, which included a franchise-worst 13-game losing streak.

Paton originally interviewed with the 49ers on Jan. 6. He met with York and Marathe in Atlanta on the same day Shanahan took part in his first interview with the club. McDonough interviewed with the 49ers on Jan. 13 in Santa Clara.
