Practice No. 7
Summary: The public got its first glimpse of the 49ers on Friday, and the crowd did not turn on QB Alex Smith like fans of the Miami Dolphins jeered Chad Henne as their open practice date this week. Smith, received warmly by the fans in attendance, looked better than he did Thursday. It was Smith's first practice this summer with full pads. The 49ers also ran 10 "live" plays with full tackling. LB Patrick Willis made the best hit, clobbering FB Jack Corcoran after a 5-yard completion from Kaepernick.Offensive Play of the day: A pair of rookies combined on the best play of the day, as QB Colin Kaepernick delivered a 50-yard pass down the field to undrafted rookie Chris Hogan (Monmouth) on the first play of the second-team offense's two-minute drill. Hogan made the catch before safety C.J. Spillman got there. Hogan sustained what appeared to be a right ankle sprain. He was able to walk off under his own power.Defensive Play of the day:Taylor Mays, who the 49ers are openly shopping for trade value, broke up Alex Smith's fourth-down pass intended for TE Vernon Davis in the end zone to end the two-minute drill at the conclusion of practice.RELATED: 49ers' Mays works through 'adversity'
Injury report: CB Shawntae Spencer (left hamstring) sat out his fourth full day of work. . . . LB Ahmad Brooks, LB Keaton Kristick, NT Isaac Sopoaga (hamstring) sat out. LB Navorro Bowman did not take part in 11-on-11 work. WR Michael Crabtree (left foot) and WR Dominique Zeigler (left knee) are on physically-unable-to-perform list. . . . TE Nate Byham (torn left ACL), WR Dontavia Bogan (torn right ACL) and CB Curtis Holcomb (ruptured left Achilles tendon) are out for the season.Starting to work: FB
Bruce Miller, whom the 49ers selected in the seventh round, made his practice debut. Miller was activated off the physically-unable-to-perform list after reporting to camp last week with a shoulder injury.Quotable: "San fran I'm home!" -- former Bills S Donte Whitner, who agreed to terms with the 49ers on a three-year, 11.75 million contract on Thursday and announced Friday evening on Twitter that his flight to the Bay Area had landed.On the sideline: Agent Drew Rosenhaus, who represents several 49ers players, made the trip from Miami to watch practice. Rosenhaus is in negotiations with the 49ers on a contract extension for RB Frank Gore, who held out the first four days of training camp. Coach Jim Harbaugh this week said he expects Gore's extension to be completed "sooner rather than later." Rosenhaus also represents free-agent safety Dashon Goldson. Rosenhaus declined comment on the status of any contract negotiations.Depth chart: Here's a look at the depth chart based on how the players lined up at Friday's practice . . .
