Priefer said Webb would get even more special teams work against San Francisco. He will be asked to hold up gunners on the punt return team. He also will be on the kickoff coverage team and on kickoff return, where Webb will play on the front line. Priefer described Webb’s special teams performance as a “work in progress.”

“At the end of the day, we have to get ready to play Detroit on opening day,” he said. “But we know [Webb], we know the type of man he is, his high character and high work ethic, we know he’s going to improve. We have to keep that in mind as we go down this stretch here.”

Etc.

• Frazier described rookie cornerback Xavier Rhodes’ performance in Buffalo — Rhodes’ NFL debut — as up and down. “He did some good things there, but there were some other things that, when we looked at the tape, that he’ll have to get better at as we approach the regular season,” Frazier said.

• Four players missed practice Wednesday. They were fullback Jerome Felton, who will be sidelined through the end of the preseason after an appendectomy last week; wide receiver Jarius Wright, whom Frazier said needed one more day to recover from a concussion sustained in Buffalo; rookie defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, who had a minor procedure to relieve pain in his left knee; and offensive lineman Tyler Holmes, who sat because of an ankle injury.
