49ers coach Kyle Shanahan made it clear there will be competition for playing time at linebacker, particularly in nickel packages where only two linebackers will be on the field. NaVorro Bowman, Reuben Foster and Malcolm Smith figure into that battle but Bowman, who is coming off an Achilles injury, is confident he'll remain in the mix. "I won't be on the sideline, I'll tell you that right now," Bowman said.

Former Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's comments to the Tampa media were taken out of context on Twitter. Here's the full quote about losing his job last season: "That's the harsh reality of the NFL. There's only so many jobs that are available. I can't complain about it. Last year I was the starter. If you play well as the starter, you continue to play. I didn't play well, so I lost the game of musical chairs. They pulled out my chair from under me."

49ers LB NaVorro Bowman is working in his usual spot in the middle during OTAs. Kyle Shanahan says Niners have to be cautious to balance Bowman's reps as he competes for his spot with not pushing him too hard as he comes back from Achilles injury.

Packers QB coach Alex Van Pelt couldn't guarantee Aaron Rodgers will pick up where he left off last season but said "I think I feel pretty good about where he is and where he'll start out the season."

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said plan for LB Reuben Foster for now is to allow him to participate in anything that doesn't have the potential for contact. He's still recovering from shoulder procedure but the hope is he will be ready for training camp. Foster is working at weakside linebacker right now, according to Shanahan.
