WitP: Owens, Brennan, LaBoy, Mouton, Manuwai, Forney

Chad Owens caught 2 passes for 37 yards, returned 4 punts for 67 yards and even completed 1 pass for 37 yards on a trick play. He also nearly won it at the end of the game on a punt return. The second link has video highlights of that return and of his completion.

The Grill Room also has a video interview with Chad Owens and his daughter from last week.

Colt Brennan will likely (maybe) play in today's Raiders preseason game.
Brennan, the former Hawaii star and Redskins backup, will see his first action after two weeks of watching plays drawn up on a board and receiving limited tosses in practice.

Raiders center Samson Satele warned not to sleep on his former Hawaii teammate.

"He's a gunslinger," Satele said. "He's got to learn how to go underneath the center. He's still learning. He's got a long ways to go in this offseason. West Coast offense is different terminology. He'll get there.

"We just have to put him in a game, see what he's got. ... He's a gamer, man. He makes a lot of plays."
Travis LaBoy is cleared to play in his first preseason game with the 49ers.
Linebacker Travis LaBoy, who has missed most of camp because of a concussion, is cleared to play against the Vikings. The 49ers don't want him to press trying to make an impression. "I think LaBoy just needs to be himself," Singletary said.
Inside the 49ers has a profile of LaBoy.
He tried to practice through the pain for a couple days in Santa Clara, but finally approached trainers at the 49ers' practice at Cal State Monterey Bay on Aug. 5 and bowed out of action. He missed 12 days of practice, and still hasn't faced contact - though defensive coordinator Greg Manusky said today that LaBoy should play against Minnesota on Sunday.

"It's kind of good to see they're taking care of me, where maybe other organizations would've just thrown you back out," LaBoy said on Thursday. "It's a refreshing thing to be part of a team that takes care of its players like this. For me, I understand the process and it was a little bit frustrating. But at the same time, it's all for a reason and you don't want to go against what's probably the right thing to do in the first place."
Ryan Mouton returned to practice yesterday, which was the first time since last Saturday's preseason game.

And Vince Manuwai is in a 3-way battle for the Jaguars' starting left guard spot with Justin Smiley and fellow former Warrior Kynan Forney.
