Battle of the Cheetahs — and Marquise Goodwin

San Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida has been nicknamed Cheetah since his college days. He’s got serious speed (4.39 40 at his college Pro Day) Authentic Laken Tomlinson Jersey , and Cheetah rhymes with the pronunciation of his last name. It’s pretty simple.Enter Tyreek Hill. The Kansas City Chiefs burner wide receiver is nicknamed Cheetah, and in fact, his Twitter handle is simply @cheetah. He ran a 4.29 40 at his college Pro Day, and regularly shows up on the NFL highlight reels with his big plays — with the peace sign thrown in when he’s really burned a defensive back.Naturally, with the 49ers traveling to face the Chiefs this weekend, Hill was asked about the 49ers Cheetah. Hill said there’s only one cheetah in the NFL, and “You can’t be a cheetah and run a 4.48 Womens Brock Coyle Jersey , or whatever you run.” He did offer some praise for Breida.Breida might be asked about the comments, but he’s a pretty low key guy. I don’t expect much in the way of a response from the 49ers running back when it comes to smack talk.Fortunately, Marquise Goodwin was willing to offer up some smack talk about his own speed. Goodwin has competed in both track and field events, earning a spot in the Olympics as a long jumper. He’s viewed as the fastest guy on the team, and he had a perfect comment when asked to compare himself with Hill.The 49ers offense would love to have Goodwin back on the field for Sunday’s matchup. He is going to be listed as limited for Wednesday’s practice as he continues rehabbing a thigh bruise. He was a DNP all last week, so this is an upgrade.Given how prolific the Chiefs offense has been through two weeks, the 49ers will need every offensive weapon they can muster. We’ve seen Dante Pettis slowly emerging while Goodwin has been out. Add a deep threat like Goodwin back into the mix Womens Adrian Colbert Jersey , and this offense could take an important step forward.Antone Exum downgraded to questionable The San Francisco 49ers secondary is one of the more banged up units on the team, and things got a bit more concerning. The 49ers announced that safety Antone Exum has been downgraded to questionable status for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers due to his quadracep injury. This injury is new, as it didn’t show up on Wednesday’s practice report. If Exum is unable to play, that would leave Tyvis Powell as his backup and Jimmie Ward possibly an option as well given the latter’s familiarity with the system. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was complimentary of Exum on Friday and his potential start against the Chargers. Both safeties Adrian Colbert (hip) and Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday and are dealing with injury issues of their own, so this does not help the unit which is almost just looking for bodies.For now the listing may just be a precaution, but we’ll find out more in the Sunday morning on what’s really going on.
