Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee passes along word that 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has seen "separation" between Asomugha and Tramaine Brock in their battle to be the team's No. 3 cornerback. Fangio wouldn't say what player is in front, but he went out of his way to praise Asomugha's performance.
The San Francisco Chronicle noted that Asomugha played well against the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday night, not allowing any catches. Asomugha has responded well since being publicly called out by Fangio a few weeks ago.
Asomugha isn't the shutdown cornerback that he once was in Oakland, but it looks like he should make the 49ers' roster.
