The closer we get, the more the players seem to be dropping like flies. I didn’t even know Shawn Poindexter was on the pup list. But that precipitated the 49ers signing River Cracraft. Yes, THAT River Cracraft. He’s bounced around a few practice squads but nothing of note. Surprisingly he beat out Jaron Brown.
They also signed Kevin White, another low-level WR from the Bears who at least had some success. To make room for him, they dumped injured DL Jonathan Kongbo. Like I posted in the last thread here’s the pup list as it stands now. There’s very little info on these guys, but they have to be activated before the final cuts are made to be eligible at the start of the season.
If not, they miss the first 6 games.
- DL Ronald Blair III.
- WR Shawn Poindexter.
- C Weston Richburg.
- DL Kentavius Street.
- DL Jullian Taylor.
Westie is the most important guy, and it doesn’t seem like he’s coming back fast enough from his ACL injury last year. I can’t find any new new on Blair either. He was very good when playing, but he’s prolly a week 7 activation as well. K Street is part of the walking wounded brigade who had played very little in his 3 year stint.
Other than that, beyond the injuries, the fires, the shootings, the virus, and the air quality, things are great! As far as I known the 49ers are holding off on letting fans in for at least the first game. We are on the road for weeks 2 and 3m so I guess the situation remains fluid.
