Training camp begins ... with a few injuries

The 49ers indeed have a full house this morning, but not every player is on the field. David Baas, of course, is out with his torn pectoral muscle and he'll be placed on the physically unable to perform list later today. Also destined for PUP is NT Aubrayo Franklin, who has a calf injury. Both will come off PUP when they pass a physical. Franklin obviously will come off the PUP sooner than Baas. The third guy who isn't practicing is LT Joe Staley who -- and I am not making this up -- has an infected bug bite on his foot. No word yet on when he'll return.

The players are stretching at the moment, but it will be interesting to see who is playing left tackle with the first unit when practice begins. My guess is that it will be Barry Sims ... At nose tackle, I'm expecting to see Ronald Fields and Joe Cohen ...

Check back in for more, much more, later today ...
