It turns out that guard Jeb Terry hurt his foot in yesterday's afternoon. The injury is not considered serious, but Terry could miss a week or so. Terry is a newcomer to the team but he's been playing quite a bit at left guard. In fact, with Jonas Jennings, Joe Staley and Damane Duckett sitting out the p.m. practice, Adam Snyder slid over to left tackle and Terry played left guard with the first-team offense. Terry has played in 30 regular-season games in his career, all for the Buccaneers, including one start. Look for Cal rookie Brian De La Puente to fill in while Terry is out.

Your chances of getting stuck on a rickety Candlestick Park escalator this season have been greatly reduced. The team has installed three new escalators to the upper deck. Three lower escalators now have awnings to shield fans from the elements.
The team also announced that it has installed new 42-inch flat screen TVs throughout the entire stadium - including the concessions stands - as well as new LED screens in the stadium bowl to provide fans with important messages and out-of-town scores.
