Tuesday Niner News & Notes - Oct. 9th

Jennings keeps private matter private
Matt Maiocco, The Press Democrat

Left tackle Jonas Jennings returned to the 49ers on Monday after being excused from the game Sunday to address a personal matter.
"When you have to handle other things outside of football then you know how important football is and how much it means to you," Jennings said.
One rumor on national radio was proved inaccurate on Monday. The report was that Jennings left the team after Nolan informed him last week he was benched. Nolan said Monday that Jennings would be back in the starting lineup against the Giants on Oct. 21.
"I don't care about rumors," Jennings said. "I don't even know what was said. I don't care. I'm telling you straight from the horse's mouth. I appreciate the support and it's a personal matter and I'm back ready to play football."

Carmen Policy Tapped To Help Keep 49ers In SF

(AP) SAN FRANCISCO - Former San Francisco 49ers president Carmen Policy has been tapped by Mayor Gavin Newsom to lead efforts to keep the team from moving to a new stadium in Silicon Valley.Policy led the team's 1997 campaign to pass a $100 million city bond measure to erect a new stadium at Candlestick Point. That stadium was never built.Policy plans to serve as the city's liaison with the team and the NFL and to seek support for a June ballot referendum that would allow construction of a new stadium at nearby Hunters Point.Niners owners favor a site in the city of Santa Clara expected to cost at least $800 million. Owner John York has said traffic concerns and a history of toxic pollution at Hunters Point, a former Navy shipyard, make the site unsuitable."There's still a lot of work to be done in terms of infrastructure, cleanup and financing, and if Carmen can help make progress in that direction, it's a very positive move," team spokeswoman Lisa Lang said. "But it doesn't change the current situation of what we're doing in Santa Clara."

Smith will definitely be in uniform vs. Giants
Matt Maiocco, The Press Democrat

Based on what 49ers coach Mike Nolan said today, there is a 100-percent chance quarterback Alex Smith will suit up against the New York Giants on Oct. 21. How do I know that? Because Nolan admitted to making a mistake that prevented Smith from being in uniform yesterday as the 49ers' No. 3 emergency quarterback. He actually wanted Smith to dress for the game and be available for emergency duty.
The mistake was made on Friday when the 49ers listed Smith as "out" on the official injury report. The league said Smith was prevented from suiting up for the game because of how he was designated on Friday.
"I could've used Alex as our third quarterback," Nolan said. "If something had happened, he could've gone in and handed the ball off. As it was, the next guy in line, the third quarterback, that's all he would've done anyway."
While it seems to be a certainty that Smith will be in uniform for the game against the Giants, there also remains a chance he could start. After all, Smith is making tremendous progress from his right shoulder separation, which he sustained Sept. 30 against the Seahawks. He threw some passes on the field before the game.
"It's amazing what surgery can do in one day," Nolan quipped, referring to the inaccurate report last week that Smith would undergo season-ending surgery.
