Ok, here's whatsup. Balmer started missing practice for unknown reasons, was excused for 2 days by Singletary and then told that he wasn't excused anymore (still, unknown reasons). During his absence, Glenn Coffee retired out of the blue, deciding that he didn't want to play football anymore and that he had found God in college and that God and he had a conversation about him not playing anymore, and his decision is final and he's going back to school.
Balmer continued to miss camp and the 49ers traded him to the Seahawks for a 6th round pick.
Eric Heitman got injured (broken leg, out 6-8 weeks) and was replaced by Baas for some reason and not Wraggee or a free agent.
The 49ers signed Westbrook to take Coffees place for the year, although Anthony Dixon did well during the first preseason game (20 some carries, 100 yards and a TD)
There has been a rash of minor injuries, Crabtree (kneck), VD (knee) shouldn't miss much time at all, Kyle Williams, our best option at PR, is out for 2 weeks or more with a sprained toe, there has been a few concussions, nothing serious, and Ahmad Brooks has a lacerated kidney and will be re-evaluated in a week or so to see if he'll miss more time.
