Harbaugh said the receivers will need to play well during preseason games to make the roster.

“Nobody has really separated themselves because nobody has fallen off right now – they’ve all played well,” Harbaugh said on Thursday.

“The games are going to be a big thing now,” he added. “If practice doesn’t separate guys, then maybe the games will.”

The remaining seven receivers are Kamar AikenJeremy Butler, Michael Campanaro, Jace Davis, Deonte Thompson, LaQuan Williams and Mike Willie.
