Jim Harbaugh spoke to the media for his Monday press conference and updated the status of cornerback Jourdan Lewis and running back Kareem Walker, who both did not play on Saturday afternoon.
Harbaugh said after the game that Lewis had a injury he was dealing with that was healed, but did not want to risk anything by playing him against Hawaii. ESPN’s Ed Cunningham, who was on the TV broadcast doing color commentary, had speculated during the game that Lewis was out due to a disciplinary issue.

Harbaugh also spoke on the status of freshman running back Kareem Walker during his Monday session, saying that he has been out due to an academic issue and they are giving him time to rectify it.
