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."
