The San Francisco 49ers have opened the door to a potential change at the free safety position. Head coach Kyle Shanahan would not make a firm commitment on the position Rookie Nick Mullens Jersey , but he left open the possibility of a change.Adrian Colbert suffered a hip injury in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He sat out Wednesday practice the next week, and then was listed as limited on Thursday and Friday. Limited usually means a player takes part in warmups and individual drills, but not team drills (although that is not always the case).This past Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, Colbert played exclusively on special teams, while D.J. Reed started at free safety. After the game, Shanahan offered this explanation as to why Reed started over Colbert.Shanahan said Colbert was the backup for Reed, and was physically ready to go. The coaching staff felt Colbert didn’t get enough reps this week to be fully prepared for the Chargers offense.On Monday, Shanahan left the door open for a change at some point. He was complimentary of Reed Nick Mullens Jersey , saying he did a good job and was improved from the previous week. He said he thinks Reed will, “continue to get better with more reps.” Naturally this begged the question that followed in which Shanahan was asked if he anticipated Reed holding onto the starting job.The 49ers return to practice on Wednesday, and we’ll get the first practice participation report later in the afternoon. If Colbert is listed as limited, that could mean a change is in the offing for at least another week. I would not expect Shanahan to announce a starter at this point, nor would defensive coordinator Robert Saleh likely say on Thursday. More than likely, barring something drastic, we’ll have to wait until Sunday for final word on who is starting at free safety.Live updates from Kyle Shanahan’s Week 2 Monday wrap-up press conference The San Francisco 49ers beat the Detroit Lions Sunday afternoon, holding them off to get in the win column in Week 2. The 49ers looked like they were going to roll through Detroit Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , holding a 30-13 at one point. Instead, things went south and it took a desperate last defensive hold to secure a 30-27 victory.The team travels east this coming weekend to face a Kansas City Chiefs squad that is operating the hottest offense in the league. Patrick Mahomes is breaking records, and nobody can figure out how to consistently stop him and Tyreek Hill. Even with the Chiefs defense struggling on its own, this game represents a tough challenge for the 49ers. Monday is a day to wrap up the previous day’s game and begin preparations for the coming week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan will meet with the media at 4 p.m. PT to discuss all that. The team seemed to get out of their Week 2 win relatively healthy, but we’ll be looking for an update on Jaquiski Tartt’s status after he injured his shoulder later in the game. The 49ers will stream the press conferences Twitter, Facebook, and the team’s app. The 49ers beat writers will also have updates from the media sessions. I’ve embedded our beat writer Twitter list so you can follow along. We’ll have a transcript later today.A Twitter List by NinersNation
