Alex Boone on watching in Week 1: ‘It sucked’

Alex Boone. (AP) After ending his contract holdout and returning to the 49ers early last week, right guard Alex Boone found himself in an unfamiliar spot: the scout team. Yes, Boone, who has started 32 straight games, spent the week getting the first-string defense ready to face the Cowboys in the season opener. “It was awesome,” Boone said. “How many guys get to say they practice against Justin Smith, Ray McDonald, Patrick Willis, guys like that? It’s always fun to go play with them.” Less fun for Boone, however, was assuming the role most scout-teamers have on game days. Boone...

Ray McDonald, Alex Boone expected to start vs. Cowboys

ESPN's Ed Werder is slowly confirming what we all kind of assumed at this point. Werder tweeted that indications are that the 49ers will start Ray McDonald and Alex Boone in Sunday's opener against the Dallas Cowboys. This has been the general belief, and naturally we start to hear these things as game day gets going. It will be interesting to see how Ed Werder has frequently covered the Cowboys for ESPN, and it sounds like he is down there for today's game. This resulted in several tweets with 49ers comments. #Niners OT Joe Staley when I asked him about no TDS in preseason. "We don't give...

Alex Boone return, and why Kassim Osgood has been cut twice over the last week

The San Francisco 49ers officially added Alex Boone back to the roster on Saturday. We take a look at some reasons why Kassim Osgood might have been cut twice in the span of a week. The San Francisco 49ers welcomed back offensive lineman Alex Boone earlier this week, and made it official on Saturday when they moved him from their exempt list, to their 53-man roster. The 49ers had Boone on the Reserve/Did Not Report list, but when he ended his holdout, the 49ers were given a brief exemption. In order to make room for Boone, the 49ers released wide receiver Kassim Osgood. This marked Osgood's...

49ers notes: Guard Alex Boone says he’ll be ready for Sunday’s opener against Cowboys

Despite missing the entire offseason, Alex Boone said Tuesday he could be “very effective” if the 49ers plug him into his right guard spot Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

Boone hopes to make 2014 debut vs. Cowboys

Alex Boone sounded restless, as one might expect of an NFL player returning from a long contract holdout. But can he realistically play effectively in Sunday’s season opener, less than a week after showing up in Santa Clara? “That’s up to the coaches,” Boone said. “Personally, I think I’d be very effective.” Boone spoke to the media Tuesday, for the first time since his training-camp holdout ended over the weekend. Boone’s reworked deal reportedly increased his total pay for the next two seasons from $3.7 million to $6 million. His agents and the 49ers had been locked in a...
