"We feel very good about him and how he handles things," Reid told the team's website. "He's a good football player and he's young. You get picked number one and it comes with a little scrutiny. You're going to have a few eyes on you, but he's done a nice job this year."
The other inactives are tackle
"I had the surgeries, so I needed to get out here, get situated before the vets get here," Fisher said. "I’m glad to be here early so I can get a jump on things."
Fisher played right tackle last year, so the extra time should help him adjust to protecting Alex Smith's blind side. He said he hasn't lost strength despite not being able to bench press following the shoulder operation.
"I’ve been in there working," he said. "When you can’t bench, there’s other things you can do. That’s what I was doing."
Fisher is working his way back from shoulder and sports hernia operations. He's expected to play at left tackle.
The report didn't say anything else about Fisher's status, but Fisher said he played last year between 295 to 300. He hopes to play between 310 to 315 this year, so it sounds like he should be ready for training camp.
