Eccentricities embraced: Harbaugh connects with Lloyd

With that history in mind, his meeting-room behavior since he signed with the 49ers in April shouldn’t come as a surprise. Lloyd, 33, has been talking to himself during video sessions and pretending to run his routes while seated.

49ers training camp – who is impressing?

Aldon Smith. (AP)What has been most surprising about this training camp so far? The play of the secondary. Even with a bolstered receiving corps, defensive backs have not only kept up, they’ve excelled. A day after cornerback Chris Cook intercepted a pass, fellow veteran corner Perrish Cox intercepted two passes including a one-handed, over-the-shoulder pick of a Colin Kaepernick throw intended deep down the field for Anquan Boldin. Additionally, speedster Darryl Morris knocked away four passes on Wednesday including two aimed at Boldin. Also on defense, the line has excelled, specifically...

49ers training camp Day 6: Big day for DBs; Tank made of iron

Training camp practice No. 6 was a good one for 49ers defensive backs with Darryl Morris, rookies Dontae Johnson and Jimmie Ward and especially Perrish Cox making plays throughout the session. Second-year player Tank Carradine consistently has been a handful for 49ers offensive linemen in training camp.

LaMichael James isn’t a doctor, but the 49ers running back could have an honorary degree in the art of treating elbow dislocations. James has an unfortunate triple crown: He’s dislocated an elbow in high school, college and the NFL.
