Marcus Lattimore on NFI list with two injuries
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said running back Marcus Lattimore is starting camp on the non-football injury list because that's what doctors and trainers recommended, reports the Sacramento Bee.

Asked if the problem was Lattimore's surgically reconstructed knee or the hamstring strain he suffered in the spring, Harbaugh replied, "A combination of the two." Harbaugh declined to elaborate.

Other reports indicate Lattimore is not too far away from being ready. He could be activated at any time.

Frank Gore doesn't want to give up his workload
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Recently there have been reports that 49ers running back Frank Gore would see his carries drop to around 200 to 220 over the course of the season. Gore's having none of that. 

"I'm still here, so why not?" Gore said when asked if he wanted to continue getting a big amount of offensive work according to Comcast Sportsnet. "I'm from Miami. I've been competing ever since I left high school. I've been with top guys who've been in the league. I'm up for it. One day, they’re going to get this role. But I'm here, and I'm going to make it a challenge. ...  I'm just going to try to be the Frank Gore I've always been."

The Niners drafted Carlos Hyde in the second round this offseason and still have Kendall Hunter and Marcus Lattimore on the roster to help Gore, 31, shoulder the load.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

49ers defensive lineman Justin Smith had offseason shoulder surgery to repair damage he sustained in camp a year ago, reports CSNBayArea.com. Smith, 34, spent the offseason rehabbing and missed all the on-field drills.

But Smith, who did not miss a game last year, says he's ready to go. "I feel healthy compared to last year," Smith said. "I feel a lot better than I did last year. This is it. This is the one I’m thinking about."

Vernon Davis still seeking new contract
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Although he reported for training camp, 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is "definitely" not O.K. with his current contract, reports Pro Football Talk. The website suggests Davis might have reported after getting the team to waive fines he incurred for skipping minicamp.

The 49ers reportedly won't negotiate with players who hold out -- another possible reason Davis showed up, the report said.
