How the 49ers Are Spending the Bye Week


Judging from the posts on their various social media accounts, members of the San Francisco 49ers are enjoying the bye week. 

San Francisco's veterans are resting, spending time with their families and allowing themselves to take time off before the final eight regular season games left on the schedule. Young players are taking advantage of "opportunity practices" being held at 49ers headquarters.

Here's a look at the highlights from the team's social media posts.
