  • Coach Kyle Shanahan stated that the field had been improving every day since the team first looked at it.
  • The 49ers held a walkthrough on the field and will continue practicing there as planned starting Wednesday.
  • NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell confirmed that league and independent inspectors found the practice field safe to use during Super Bowl week.
