Photo: And So, Brian Westbrook in a 49ers Uniform

And he's taken to wearing his number from the Villanova days: Brian Westbrook 49ers 20

We've seen Brian Dawkins in the colors of the Broncos, and earlier this off-season, Donovan McNabb wearing Redskins gear. Something somewhat less difficult about seeing Brian Westbrook in a new home. His departure was less controversial and polarizing, but he still holds the hearts of fans in this town.

BWest came out of his first action with the 49ers, favoring what is said to be a hamstring cramp. The team believes it's nothing serious, and Westbrook gained 17 yards on two carries.* We reiterate our hope that he stays healthy, especially as pertains to his concussion history. (Photo by Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images)

*For you fantasy kids, Frank Gore saw his first action of the preseason and ran for 58 yards on two carries; his first went for 49.
