Tuesday Niner News & Notes - Oct. 2

49ers hope to improve blocking for Dilfer

John Crumpacker, San Francisco Chronicle

While Alex Smith receives treatment and therapy for his separated right shoulder, the 49ers have two big to-dos on their list as they prepare to face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday:
-- Get Trent Dilfer ready to play only his second NFL regular-season game since Nov. 27, 2005.
-- Try to fix serious and surprising problems with the interior of the offensive line. Because Dilfer's physical well being depends on the second issue, he has a vested interest in seeing the 49ers shore up what had been expected to be a strength of the team.
"I prepare to go out and run the entire offense to the best of my ability," Dilfer said. "Not a whole lot changes except the repetitions in practice. Get some rhythm and timing back, which you had in training camp. That will help execution."

No surgery for injured Smith

On a scale of one to six, Alex Smith has a Grade 3 separation of his throwing shoulder, meaning the ligaments connecting his collarbone to his shoulder blade are torn. No surgery is planned.
The 49ers' quarterback was sleep-deprived and in pain when he emerged from a meeting Monday afternoon at team headquarters in Santa Clara. His right arm was in a sling, the end result of absorbing a sack by 308-pound Seattle defensive tackle Rocky Bernard on the third play of Sunday's game.
"Been better," Smith said. "Been better. It's pretty sore right now. Pretty tender."
Though he said the team's medical staff will know more about his condition Thursday, when swelling in the shoulder subsides, Smith indicated he would be out "several weeks."

Talked to Vernon Davis today about the hit that put him out of action a couple of weeks. Davis thought Steelers safety Troy Polamalu’s shot that left him with a sprained medial collateral ligament was a bit of a cheap shot. But he said he’s not angry with Polamalu, who called him a couple of days after the game to apologize.“I don’t know how he got my number, but the guy called me and apologized for hitting me that low,” Davis said.What was his reaction: “It’s cool. That’s alright. That’s what happens. It’s part of football.”Davis is not yet running on the knee but said he’s been doing some low-impact weight lifting in the training room. He said he aims to be back for the New York Giants game Oct. 21. Now if only he can get an apology from Gerry Austin ...
