49ers afternoon wrap up
  • Mike Singletary insisted again that he he will activate Ahmad Brooks for one of the reamining games this season. "We need to see what he can do," Singletary said. However, it won't be this week. With Frank Gore's injury situation, there is a strong liklihood that Thomas Clayton will be elevated to the active roster Saturday. If that happens, Brooks is a prime candidate to be waived, which was the case two weeks ago in Buffalo.

  • Allen Rossum was back returning punts today and the hope is that with Nate Clements (thumb) and Arnaz Battle (foot) ailing, Rossum can resume his role at punt returner. Singletary, however, said that Michael Robinson and Delanie Walker probably would continue to handle kick returns. Battle, who aggravated his foot Sunday, likely will be listed as questionable. He and Gore were the only 49ers who didn't practice today.
  • Singletary said he expects Josh Morgan will be active for the first time since suffering agroin injury in early November. However, Bryant Johnson will continue to start ahead of the rookie.
