Also, OC Kyle Shanahan said the starting nod being given Thursday to tailback Evan Royster is not necessarily an indication of which way the team is leaning in the competition for the starting running back job.
“Nothing is set,” Shanahan said.
Coach Mike Shanahan said Tuesday that Royster would start against the Bills and split carries with Roy Helu. Tim Hightower, who’s working his way back from a knee injury suffered last season, is not scheduled to play in Buffalo.
“Hopefully one of those guys will make our decision easy,” Kyle Shanahan said.
