Crabtree, V. Davis practice; Westbrook does not

Two of the 49ers big-name offensive players, Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis, went through a full practice this afternoon, but another, Brian Westbrook was out with a hamstring injury suffered in Saturday's win over the Raiders. Westbrook played six snaps and carried the ball twice in Oakland. A run to the outside went for no gain while a third-down draw up the middle gained 17 yards.

Meanwhile, left tackle Joe Staley sat out practice with a sprained knee suffered Sunday. Starting center David Baas suffered a stinger on his right side during practice. He was replaced by Tony Wragge while Adam Snyder filled in at left tackle. Staley went through individual drills and his injury is not considered serious.

Tight end Tony Curtis (quad) and inside linebacker Matt Wilhelm (headaches) went through individual drills. Shawntae Spencer went through a full practice after missing Saturday's game with a groin injury.
