Singletary's Notebook: Aug. 17



On WR Kyle Williams and his punt return ability:**"I certainly like what I saw, but I just think its one of those things where we just have to continue to evaluate his health and the toe and everything else. We'll just take our time and see what's there. We have some other guys that I would like to see. (WR Dominique) Zeigler has done it before, obviously (WR) Ted Ginn, I'm not sure how much more I want to see of him, but we'll just see. There are a couple of guys that I think have done it and may get a shot between now and the end of training camp."

On whether WR Ted Ginn Jr. is slotted as a receiver, punt returner or kickoff returner:"That's something. The ideal thing is to use Ted Ginn more in kickoff rather than the punt, but we'll let it work itself out." 

On RB Brian Westbrook's ability to add to the offense:"Every little bit can add to our offense, but I think we have guys on our offense that can certainly do some things. You think about (WR Michael) Crabtree, you think about (TE) Vernon (Davis). I think you bring a guy like Westbrook in, I'm sure (Offensive Coordinator) Jimmy Raye will sit down and figure out some things that he would like to see in Westbrook, in terms of how he can help us."

On K Joe Nedney and whether he is injured:"I think Joe is fine. I think he's been a little sore, but I think he's fine."

On how much time Nedney needs to work during the summer:"I don't know that. I really don't know that. I don't think very much, but I think he has to work on his craft just like everybody else, but to what degree, I don't know."

On whether he envisions situations with Westbrook and RB Frank Gore in the backfield together:"It's possible. It's definitely possible."

On WR Brandon Jones recovery process:"We'll find out today. I think he's a day-to-day situation as of right now."

On whether TE Vernon Davis will practice:"I don't think so, but I don't know that for sure."

On whether LB Brandon Long will practice:"I don't think he is going to go."

On why Long might be sitting out:"I thought it was the knee."

On his expectations for the season with the addition of Westbrook:"We had high expectations going into the season before he got here, so I think that it's kind of what I said yesterday, he's a guy that certainly adds some excitement to what we're doing, he's another playmaker and it's just a matter of how he mixes in, but I'm sure Jimmy Raye will figure it out."
