LOS ANGELES -- quick notes...
Coach Jim Harbaugh and RB Toby Gerhart.
Harbaugh on Gerhart: "Toby is our shining star ... What people don't know about is his speed. You'll see him running away from linebackers and defensive backs ... personally, I think his future is as an NFL running back."
Harbaugh on two-way players: "I think people will sit back and see if it works for us."
Harbaugh on OT Allen Smith: "Right now Allen has been cleared to get back into the weight room full-go. He needs to strengthen his leg ... We're hopeful he will be able to play football this season." Said it could be, "Game 4, Game 5, Game 6."
Harbaugh on whether anyone can challenge USC: "There will be nine teams challenging USC."
Harbaugh on next step: "The step we've got to take now is we've got to be a relentless team."
