Inside linebacker Michael Wilhoite, who started 28 games over the past two seasons, has not played a snap of defense in the 49ers’ first two games.
SANTA CLARA -– The 49ers have not decided on a starter alongside NaVorro Bowman because the team plans to use all three of their options, defensive coordinator Jim O’Neil said on Wednesday.
Jeremy Kerley is entering just his second week with the 49ers, but he is already the team’s starting slot receiver and punt returner.
On a night when the 49ers protected more than 20 of their projected starters and key players from risk of injury, six players were on the field for every snap.
SANTA CLARA – NaVorro Bowman is in no hurry to find out who will be lining up to him at inside linebacker for the regular season.
