Extra points

Griffin, nose tackle Barry Cofield and defensive end Stephen Bowen were voted co-captains Wednesday. They join left tackle Trent Williams, linebacker London Fletcher and special teams stalwart Lorenzo Alexander, who began the season as co-captains. Shanahan customarily has his teams vote on additional captains at midseason after leaders have time to emerge.

Shanahan racked his brain and concluded Griffin is the first rookie captain he’s had in 19 seasons as a head coach.

• Strong safety Brandon Meriweather (sprained left knee) was limited in practice. “He’s looking good, a lot of enthusiasm out there,” Shanahan. “Just keep your fingers crossed that there’s no setback tomorrow.”
