"By the end of the year...whether the 49ers have to play at home or on the road, I don't care. If Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk are healthy, if Christian McCaffrey is healthy, I will take them in a game against anybody in the conference," King told the guys on Tuesday.

The 49ers are getting healthier coming off the bye with Deebo Samuel returning to practice on Monday and multiple other injured players having their practice windows opened for a possible return.

San Francisco has dropped three in a row after a 5-0 start as they prepare to head to Jacksonville and a battle with the 6-2 Jaguars, who are also coming off their bye week and have won five straight games following a 1-2 start.
