For the first time this preseason, the 49ers will put all most of their weapons on the field at the same time. 49ers coach Mike Singletary said RB Frank Gore, RB Brian Westbrook and WR Michael Crabtree will all play in Saturday’s preseason game against the Raiders, according to the team’s official site.
The 49ers will continue to hold out TE Vernon Davis due to a strained knee.
Singletary told reporters on Thursday that Gore will play one series, and possibly more. He said Crabtree, who has yet to play due to a sprained neck, is expected to play one quarter. The plan is also for Westbrook to make his 49ers’ debut.
Singletary added that the offensive line will most likely play the first half.
