7 Locker Room Observations: Nov. 6

The San Francisco 49ers opened their Levi's® Stadium locker room doors on Thursday afternoon. Here's what we came away with...*


1. As of this week, the team's practice jerseys now have patches with past honors. Walking through the locker room, we saw sewn-on badges for accomplishments like full participation in the offseason program as well as playoff experience.

2. There weren't very many players around when we were let in through the red double doors, which was obvious in part because golf was on every TV in the room.

3. Wideout Michael Crabtree spoke to the waiting reporters.

4. On the shoe watch: Nose tackle Ian Williams had a pair of red and black Jordan 13s in front of his locker stall.

5. Another nose tackle, Glenn Dorsey (torn biceps), was seen working out on the treadmill. Earlier, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio gave Dorsey a 50-50 shot to make his season debut in Week 10 at New Orleans.

6. Fangio also wasn't sure if inside linebacker Joe Staley (toe) would be able to play. Willis or his replacement, rookie Chris Borland, will have to fend off Saints 6-foot-7 tight end Jimmy Graham on Sunday. Graham will also see some of San Francisco's cornerbacks and safeties trying to disrupt his routes, too.

7. The mini-basketball hoop that was recently hung in the locker room was mysteriously missing its backboard and rim, leaving us to think that someone slammed a dunk down too hard.
