SAN FRANCISCO - Brandon Jacobs balanced himself on crutches walking through the San Francisco 49ers locker room. LaMichael James strolled through with a backpack and a smile.

What at first looked like at least one - if not two - long-term injuries for San Francisco's newest running backs in Saturday's 20-9 preseason loss at the Houston Texans suddenly doesn't seem so bad.

Coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday that former Assumption Mustang running back Jacobs' left knee could be healthy enough for him to start the regular-season opener at Green Bay on Sept. 9.

James, the team's second-round pick out of Oregon, said he's ready to practice already after injuring his left ankle and riding a cart off the field in the fourth quarter at Houston.
