Rookie report from 49ers practice 14: Undrafted rookie RB Matt Breida continues to make his mark on this camp, doing so today against Denver's defense. Breida had a couple of runs in team drills where he squeezed through a some tight spots and took off for big gains. He still looks right at home in any situation. ... TE Cole Hikutini has been quiet in recent days but came up with a couple plays against the Broncos on Wednesday. He's still in the mix in a close battle at tight end.

Play of the day from 49ers practice 14: Working against Denver's vaunted secondary, the Niners' first-team offense had a pretty solid day, especially in seven-on-seven red zone drills. QB Brian Hoyer lofted a perfectly placed pass to the right corner of the end zone to Pierre Garcon for a touchdown.

Overheard at 49ers practice 14: A practice with the Broncos brought out a lot more trash talk. After WR Aldrick Robinson made a catch over the middle and spun the ball in front of the defender covering him, someone on the Denver sideline yelled "Was that your first catch? Congrats." Broncos CB Aqib Talib followed with "If you're spinning the ball after a catch, you know you're going to get cut." Robinson responded but nothing escalated and in fact both teams mostly did a good job of avoiding conflict during the two-hour workout.

Injury report from 49ers practice 14: LB Reuben Foster was dinged up during practice about halfway through and was held out of contact drills the rest of the time. GM John Lynch said Foster told him after practice that he's fine. Not expected to miss time. DT D.J. Jones also appeared to suffer a left leg injury in pass rush drills but that also didn't appear serious. LB Brock Coyle (rib) and CB Dontae Johnson (concussion) returned at full go today.

49ers general manager John Lynch said LB Donavin Newsom, who suffered concussion in scary collision last week, will be designated waived/injured today. Newsom will revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers and get time to recover, according to Lynch.

The 49ers also have put their ring of honor at Levi's Stadium with the numbers of retired greats as well as names of coaches and general managers from some of their greatest teams. They also have the roman numerals from each of their Super Bowl victories. All of that can be seen from in the seating bowl.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers received 130,000 fan survey responses about Levi's Stadium and made a number of changes to better showcase their tradition and their current players. Some of those changes include past and present player banners, graphics of historical moments in franchise history as well as their Super Bowl victories.

Play of the day from 49ers practice 13: It wasn't a particularly strong day for the offense and one play showed that better than any other. While working in red zone drills, quarterback Brian Hoyer dropped back to pass and immediately had S Eric Reid in his face. Reid likely would have had a sack but if he didn't Hoyer let go of the pass toward the right sideline for TE Vance McDonald. But McDonald bobbled the ball and stepped out of bounds for an incompletion according to the official on the field.

Overheard at 49ers practice 13: "I hate heights, Ray," DT DeForest Buckner said as he attempted to climb down the giant hill strength coach Ray Wright had some of his injured players using as a rehab tool during practice. Wright responded by saying "Grab the sides, it's what I tell my 5-year old." Buckner laughed and slowly made his way down the 60-foot hill, which sits at a menacing 30 degree incline.

49ers rookie report from practice 13: TE George Kittle continues to work his way back from a hamstring injury and though his reps have been limited, he is back to doing team drills. Kittle still looks the part of a rookie whom the Niners have big plans for in 2017. ... DL Pita Taumoepenu, who has not had many standout moments in camp, might have had his best practice as he came up with a sack and had success generating pressure off the edge. He has an uphill climb to a roster spot and will need to start stringing them together to have a chance to stick.

49ers injury report from practice 13: The Niners made it through Tuesday's workout with no obvious new additions to the injury report. The only new name on the list of players not participating was DE Aaron Lynch, who suffered an ankle injury on Monday. Lynch isn't expected to be out long and he's listed as day-to-day. Meanwhile, coach Kyle Shanahan expressed optimism that FS Jimmie Ward could come off the PUP list and return to practice soon as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

The basketball hoop that sits in the 49ers' team meeting room is used as a tiebreaker of sorts from practice competitions. Kyle Shanahan said it usually pits an offensive player against a defensive one in a free throw shooting contest. Asked who the best shooters are, Shanahan said, "We have a bunch of good football players." Said DL coach Jeff Zgonina is the most Shaq-like free throw shooter he's seen so far.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan confirms that LB Reuben Foster is indeed the team's starter on the weak side. He stopped short of saying that's permanent but fair to say it would take a big change or injury for that not to be the case in the opener against the Carolina Panthers.

Something you don't see in an NFL team meeting room every day... Niners coach Kyle Shanahan will be in here to speak with media shortly.

USADA bans Goodwin; WR says he quit track

USADA suspended Marquise Goodwin for one year for failing to provide his whereabouts for drug testing, but the 49ers wide receiver says he gave up track and field more than a year ago.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The United States Anti Doping Agency is sanctioning Niners WR Marquise Goodwin for failure to comply with what it calls "whereabouts" paperwork. Goodwin released a statement saying he has no intention of competing in track and field right now and his focus is on football. The Niners have been in touch with the league and there will be no discipline from the league on this matter.
