49ers backup quarterback Thad Lewis suffered a torn ACL in Sunday night’s preseason loss to the Texans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports via Marc Sessleer of NFL.com.
Lewis was hurt during the third quarter after completing 12 of 21 passes for 97 yards. The 28-year-old signal-caller followed coach Chip Kelly west from Philadelphia, but it’s fair to wonder how many more stops Lewis will make during his journeyman career.
The injury leaves San Francisco scrambling for another camp body. With Colin Kaepernick nursing a sore shoulder and rookie Jeff Driskel looking especially green throwing the ball against Houston, the Niners could use another arm.
