SAN FRANCISCO — This is the live blog for the pregame of the 49ers’ Week 3 game against the Colts. I’ll update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box.
12:00 Vernon Davis is inactive and so is B.J. Daniels, Chris Harper, LaMichael James, Nate Stupar, Joe Looney and Jon Baldwin. Vance McDonald will start for Vernon Davis.
12:01 The Colts’ inactives are Da’Rick Rogers, LaRon Landry, Kerwynn Williams, Pat Angerer, Samson Satele, David Reed and Montori Hughes.
12:06 Aldon Smith is not inactive, but that doesn’t mean he’ll start. Chris Mortensen reported this morning the 49ers plan to play Aldon Smith “sparingly.” Does that mean they’ll play him only on defense?
12:07 How many points do you think the 49ers’ offense will score today without Vernon Davis?
12:26 Vance McDonald, the 49ers’ starting tight end, is practicing long snapping right now.
12:48 Aldon Smith lines up at his usual starting position during warmups.
