Reuben Foster to start for Niners

"We plan on her assisting with the receivers", Shanahan said. "If our guys behind him - we've got some good players behind him, too - if they started performing at a higher level than him, then that wouldn't be the case". But by no means - no one's just - he could get beat out at any time. One that looks to be decided is starting weak side linebacker for the Niners. Ray-Ray Armstrong, his main competition at the position, has worked with the second string, including in Friday's preseason opener in Kansas City.

A day earlier, defensive coordinator Robert Saleh seemed less comfortable with identifying Foster, the 31st pick in the draft, as a starter. "We're still far from putting a stamp on any evaluation on anyone on the defense".

Foster will join fellow first round pick Solomon Thomas (No. 3 overall) in trying to improve a Niners defense that was one of the worst in the National Football League a year ago.

Tuesday's practice saw rookie Trent Taylor, San Jose native DeAndre Carter and incumbent Jeremy Kerley return punts in full-team drills. But it's clear, with Smith out, Foster is likely going to be one of the first 11 players on the field.

Foster played 27 snaps in the first exhibition game against the Chiefs, logging two assisted tackles and a broken up pass in the end zone from Alex Smith to tight end Demetrius Harris.

Sowers on staff - Shanahan said Katie Sowers, whose coaching internship with the 49ers expired last week, will have a full-time role with the team this season.

It's unclear if Sowers will have a role beyond this season but she will be a full-time member of the staff during the year, according to Shanahan. The 49ers have respectfully not hyped up her hiring, and Shanahan wasn't asked about her status until 10 minutes into Tuesday's 12-minute media session.

"She's a hard worker, and you don't even notice her because she just goes to work and does what's asked", Shanahan said.

Shanahan said safety Jimmie Ward's hamstring "responded really well" to the vigorous workout he was given Sunday.

"Punt returns, that's definitely something you want to see in a game", Shanahan said.

- Vinnie Sunseri, who's been the backup free safety to Lorenzo Jerome, had an interception.
