SANTA CLARA -– The turf at Levi’s Stadium was deemed to be in good enough condition for the 49ers to return there for the second day of practice.
The 49ers are scheduled to practice at 4:15 p.m. on Sunday. The practice is closed to the general public. The 49ers are committed to practice inside Levi's Stadium on Wednesday for an event for season-ticket holders. There is also a public practice scheduled for the stadium next Sunday.
Coach Jim Tomsula said the grass held up well with the exception of the divots created outside the numbers during individual periods for the wide receivers. Around the hashmarks, the grass appeared mostly fine for the offensive and defensive linemen. Ian Williams said Sunday that the field conditions were "decent" for Saturday's night's camp-opening practice.
“In terms of the team periods, there were no problems at all,” Tomsula said. “You’ll see the (location of the) individual periods adjusted a little bit. The problem when the wide receivers and the DBs with all the stopping and starting and planting and driving, so we’ll get those moved and go from there.”
Tomsula said each morning equipment manager Steve Urbaniak meets with heads groundskeeper Matthew Greiner to discuss the conditions of the practice fields. Ultimately, Tomsula said, it is his responsibility to decide where to practice.
“All 100 percent lays on me there,” Tomsula said. “We’re going onto practice on the game field. That’s what we’re going to do. We feel like we’re in a good spot with the game field.”
