Battle May Start in Dallas

Arnaz Battle has yet to start a preseason game for the 49ers this summer, but Mike Nolan said that could change Saturday in Dallas.

Battle has practiced extensively this week, and Nolan said the receiver’s infirm right knee appears to be responding well to new treatment. Battle suffered a bone bruise and a strained ligament in the joint last season and has dealt with swelling.

“He’s a lot better than he was.” Nolan said. “I actually thought today was the best he’s looked (this summer). There wasn’t much hobble.”

With Battle limited in practice, Bryan Gilmore has started opposite Antonio Bryant the past two weeks. Nolan said he’d decide today whether Battle or Gilmore will start against the Cowboys.
