In what’s becoming an all to familiar trend, another 49er was injured in practice as cornerback Chris Culliver went down with a knee injury. Reports are Culliver was covering a punt when he fell to the ground and clutched his left knee. He was carted off the field.
Culliver was competing with Tarell Brown, Nnamdi Asomugha, and Carlos Rogers for one of the starting cornerback spots. Last season, he played 63.2 percent of the teams defensive snaps as the third corner. Culliver and Rogers are the only of the above mentioned cornerbacks signed past this year. His 2013 season could now be in jeopardy.
