8.12: 49ers Camp Report, Wednesday August 12th
Kate longworth joins us live from camp singletary and -- know Crabtree but at least it seems that he does wanna play. And there may be -- at the end of the tunnel that is not a train. That's right -- although the niners may wish that was a train or plane are any arm a chance predation that would bring Michael Crabtree to training camp but alas still no word on Crabtree and his contract situation. I once again tried putting calls to his aging Eugene parker but my -- calls. Were not returned and the niners still have no official comment. On scratchy contact but they did it stop me from asking them what eighteenth at his -- You. Q on that when asking the wrong guy haven't I would have any idea about the new report some Michael Crabtree. Are any updates on him. I try to column but he didn't answer I guess he's busy you if you don't -- you know he would he would no one has Saito we'll. Hopefully you know they'll get here soon we'll. Love to have really appreciate appreciate him coming into. Until then -- just -- your card. And so the offense moves on it without Crabtree and today and niners were pulling out the tricks as Jimmie re introduce a new formation front. His playbook of which looked a lot like the wildcat -- team it's calling it it taser. And -- rats he did cornerbacks -- time now as a wide receivers stepped in and took a few snaps and here's -- played out. We did well to collect the rocket get. Good group of guys that back there who's you know who they couldn't connected Renault can run the wildcat. Michael screw. I'm -- battle and hopefully Michael Robinson when he goes back. The teaser seemed to fit Michaels for a lot of strain. When he called upon his former quarterback days that old bit where he spent three years as understudy to like me any. He has. Running ability and ability to throw the ball and he can run with the ball he isn't great initial quickness. And he is a pass -- different quarterback you get to test. By every play you -- -- receiver you -- and and Tim miles per hour. And you my negative in involves throwing away so. Playing quarterback is -- -- to balance that -- love it. I think you someday he won't be editor got to want to try. And doing Mindanao -- want them and I'm glad he gave me an opportunity. In the wildcats' Sherlock would be rotating with Michael Robinson in -- battle but first -- have to make the team. I think the evaluation process -- that position is wide open I think I'm in a good spot. Has none to be comfortable say they you know you're achieved anything yet we haven't played a real game you. Tom I think that's going to be one of my milestones. So make sure I take every day you know like is the first day. Now although the team enjoyed that taser today don't expect to see it in Friday's game against Denver the team is not game planning instead they will be focusing and on their own plays and their own personnel. -- All right Kate thank you very much meanwhile the 49ers have released an unofficial depth chart in the past. Shaun Hill as the starting quarterback that can all change by Friday. As an injured middle linebacker Patrick Willis is also listed as a starter he had run drills and first day of practice. With that ankle sprain Josh Morgan Isaac Bruce listed as receivers one into. Glen Coffee is the backup running back meaning you'll see plenty of time the season. And B --
