Spencer pulls hamstring, out for preseason

Shawntae SpencerMore news out of the University of Pittsburgh West Coast Campus known as the San Francisco 49ers…Shawntae Spencer pulled up lame with a hamstring injury in practice Wednesday morning. Ironically he was covering former Panther Antonio Bryant who made a fingertip grab on the play after Spencer fell due to pulling his hammy.

From InsideBayArea:

Niners coach Mike Nolan said Thursday that starting left cornerback Shawntae Spencer will miss the rest of the preseason because of a strained hamstring he suffered during practice Wednesday.

“It’ll be a few weeks,” said Nolan, adding he expects Spencer to be ready for the regular-season opener on Sept. 10 at Arizona.

Spencer’s injury is increasing the opportunity for other cornerbacks. Sammy Davis, has moved up to the first team at left cornerback, and Derrick Johnson and rookie Marcus Hudson are seeing time on the “dime” unit that enters the game on passing downs.

Spencer has started 26 games in the last two seasons for the niners and was seemingly making strides to become even better in his third season. He has recently been featured on the 49ers website with his own journal and is pictured on the cover of their GameDay program. Hopefully a he is ready for the season opener.

This should only increase the rumors and possibly talks between the 49ers and Jets about trading Kevan Barlow for some cornerback help.
