“He’s done well in his reps that he’s had in the game and in practice,” Fangio told SFGate.com on Wednesday. “Particularly the last two or three weeks, he’s played much better.”
Though he didn’t play in the team’s final preseason game, a 41-6 rout against the San Diego Chargers, Asomugha is prepared to help the team move forward. If he falters, Tramaine Brock will be able to step in and take over the role, but for now, the former Pro Bowler will have plenty of opportunities to try to recapture some of the form that once made him one of the games most feared cornerbacks. For now, he’s a solid option at backup, and for a team loaded with talent, that’s good enough for the time being.
