With the 49ers having to cut a practice short due to players slipping on the turf at brand-new Levi’s Stadium, we came up with a few mock headlines.

• Grass stains: Niners’ new Levi’s already dirty

• Niners order stronger grass; Steelers’ Bell, Blount ask for trade to San Francisco

• Grass-roots effort: Harbaugh seeding with anger

• Bad fit: Levi’s Stadium a pain in the grass

• 49ers practice cancelled; players tripping on bad grass

• Levi’s Stadium turf receding faster than Vernon Davis’ hairline

• Niners players: ‘Chunky sod still better than paying on baseball infield’

• Harbaugh removes grass; too risky near new khakis
