I really didn't think the mutiny was going to work. We have a meeting tonight. He might have another surprise for us again. That's the type of coach he is." --- Niners safety Lance Schulters


Mariucci indicated that Schulters and running backs Paul Smith and Kevan
Barlow - who practiced for the first time in pads this week - probably would
be held out of Sunday's preseason game against the Raiders. ... CB Jason
Webster, WR Tai Streets, DT Bryant Young, WR J.J. Stokes and S Zack Bronson
were among the 13 players who didn't practice Friday. Each of those players
is likely out for the Raiders game.
