SANTA CLARA — Rookie linebacker Reuben Foster won’t play this week but he was inside the 49ers’ locker room for a brief time on Tuesday afternoon, walking around without a boot or any real noticeable limp.
Blocking out the ‘noise’: Brian Hoyer has dealt with criticisms throughout his professional career, and those knocks on his ability haven’t slowed down through the first two weeks after he registered a 60.7 quarterback rating to rank 31st in the NFL.
Rams coach Sean McVay noted the strength of Carolina and Seattle’s defenses and said he thought the 49ers offense was “just a couple plays away from being really productive and making a handful of things happen.
“You look at the offenses that (49ers coach) Kyle (Shanahan) has been a part of throughout the course if his career, there’s plays to be made, they’ve got great players and I think it’s only a matter of time until things consistently click for them,” McVay said.
(Head strength and conditioning coach) Ray Wright and our training crew, (vice president of medical services/head athletic trainer Jeff Ferguson) and all them, they do a great job.
