The 49ers had started practice Monday afternoon, but a group of photographers had their lenses pointed away from action on the field.

They were waiting for an image that never developed - the sight of former NFL quarterback Daunte Culpepper opening the locker-room doors and stepping onto the field in a red-and-gold uniform.
