QB Smith Won’t Need Surgery


According to ESPN, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith won’t need surgery to repair his separated shoulder. Smith was evaluated by Dr. James Andrews and an MRI confirmed that the 2005 number-one draft pick has a third-degree separation of his right shoulder. Initial MRI results showed Smith suffered torn “AC” and “CC” ligaments. Smith was reportedly receiving treatment in the team’s training room Wednesday morning. The 23-year old Smith suffered the injury during Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks when he was sacked by Seattle’s Rocky Benard on San Francisco’s opening drive. Trent Dilfer finished the game, going 12-of-33 passing for 128 yards. The 49ers play host to the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday– the team the 35-year old Dilfer led to a Super Bowl 34 victory over the New York Giants.
