Singletary runs practice

For the second time this year, assistant head coach Mike Singletary ran practice for Mike Nolan. Nolan did not attend practice today for family reasons. No specific reason for Nolan’s absence was given, but it is known that his father, Dick Nolan, is in declining health with Alzheimer’s and prostate cancer. The elder Nolan was placed in an assisted living facility in the Dallas area earlier this year.
Singletary ran a training-camp practice this summer while Mike Nolan attended a memorial service for former coach Bill Walsh. Nolan is expected back for tomorrow's practice. The 49ers leave for Seattle on Sunday.
Said Singletary: "We've got Mike in our prayers and we know everything down there will go well."
