Brandon Jones Suffers Shoulder Fracture (Out 8 to 10 Weeks)

With Brandon Jones out for eight weeks and Michael Crabtree not budging on his contract demands, the 49ers added a wideout today, Chris Francies, who played at UTEP. Francies (6-1, 193) was picked up by the Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2006 and he played in seven games that season. He was cut a year ago and spent time on the Saints practice squad. He's wearing No. 9. ... To make room, the 49ers cut DE Babatunde Oshinowo, who was brought in before training camp. Ricky Jean-Francois' return to practice made Oshinowo expendable.

Pretty big blow to our WR core. Looks like Morgan and Bruce are locked as the starters at the start of the season.

Good news for the Morgan bandwagon.
when it rains, it freakin pours.

We knew he was injury prone! Crabtree will sign soon.

We should have kept Bryant Johnson.

Lions wide receiver Bryant Johnson is sidelined for the start of training camp because of injuries suffered in a golf-cart accident in early July.

"No orthopedic issues at all with it," coach Jim Schwartz said Saturday after the Lions' first practice. "It was superficial wounds, a lot of road-rash kind of things, and he's not ready to practice. He still has some open wounds and things like that.
"We're going to take our time. It may be a little while with him, but we'll get him back as quick as we can. He's healing fine, but it is an issue."

Bryant Johnson is still a better receiver than Jones. We wasted all that money on Jones, when Johnson got 3/$9M

Jones getting hurt is actually a blessing in disguise because it will give Jason Hill and Ziegler a chance to make the roster.

Hope so, but we're only keeping 5 receivers.

WR 1: Josh Morgan (LOCK)
WR 2: Issac Bruce (LOCK)

Michael Crabtree
Jason Hill
Dominique Ziegler
Arnaz Battle
Brandon Jones

Again, Jones was a waste of money. We should have spent that money on a pass rusher.
