Some odds and ends from Thursday’s practice:
* Ashley Lelie pulled a quad muscle on Wednesday and will not play. Bryan Gilmore likely will be the No. 3 receiver with Jason Hill also seeing some action
* Safety Michael Lewis missed practice because his wife is having a baby
* Frank Gore (ankle), Mark Roman (knee) and Alex Smith (forearm) were limited in practice.
* Shaun Hill injured a finger on his throwing hand when it hit a teammate’s helmet. Hill ran into the training room toward the end of practice. Mike Nolan did not know the extent of the injury. With Hill out, Arnaz Battle took a few snaps at quarterback.
*Speaking of quarterbacks, starter Trent Dilfer, 35, got into a fracas with rookie cornerback Tarell Brown, 22. Dilfer had to be pulled from a pile of players (by peace keeper Vernon Davis of all people.).
“Tarell Brown had some comments and Trent didn’t like them so he ran over,” Nolan said. “He wanted to bear hug him, I guess”
Asked if he was surprised that his starting quarterback would get into a practice scrap, Nolan said, “Not when you have the personality Trent has.”
