10:54 pm
games. >> you know how it goes. things go great, swimmingly, we've got something cooking here. goes bad, you just say, doesn't count. preseason football. don't worry about it. that's exactly the line the 49ers have to take with regard to jimmy garoppolo. seeing his first action in a long time. since last september in kansas city. after the acl was torn against the chiefs. he went three total series and it didn't go well. 1 for 6 passing for zero yards, shelby harris with the deflection and it wasn't long after that. what you call bad to worse as isaac with the interception. 48-yard line to the 49ers, and off the field, george kittle has an injured calf. what's the deal with our offense? they need me back in there. but there were plenty of positives. this guy is at the top of the list. raheem mostert, six carries, 58
10:55 pm
yards. and gone right there for the touchdown. 49ers leading 10-9. also great on special teams and later deebo samuel's the rookie turned the corner here after taking a little toss from c.j. beathard, 45 yards. he didn't quite get into the end zone but set up the score and the 49ers get thnal 24 15. 2-0 for what it's worth. jimmy g a little frustrated. >> obviously, a little frustrated but it's the nfl. fortunely we don't get to play the whole game so you only get so many plays. you wish you could be out there for more to bounce back and everything but it is what it is. preseason right now so you've got to take it in stride. >> just preseason. meanwhile with the raiders, the story is here's how you can boil it down, 2900 nfl players around the camps across the league. they are all happy with their helmets except for one guy and

10:58 pm
years to support the finances in that program. that has been missing there for a couple of decades at least. he of course wants everybody to pay it forward with the same spirit he brings to everything he does being the golf fanatic that he is. in case you missed it, i will just tell you this is one of the craziest things you'll see. but i guess they do it on a regular basis. this is over in switzerland. the professional swim runner. what's this guy doing? standing on the streets and all of a sudden he takes off. his name is toby seager. what does he decide to do? you can imagine the guys parents see that. what are you doing? so much could go wrong. with that jumper. >> one wrong move. >> one little wrong twist. in case you missed it, something here in minneapolis. miguel sano wants no part of the squirrel. and it heads over to the twins dugout.
