I mentioned yesterday I figured Fleming would either get cut because he can't stay healthy or he'd go to the PUP/IR and we would try it again next year. He was a 5th round pick 2 years back so it's not too big of a deal. If he didn't keep getting hurt he would have likely been with the team this year. Leaves us with Wilhoite who did really well on ST last year in the few games he played and Moody at #3 and #4 ILB. Both should do really well on ST and if needed Wilhoite would probably be the #3 ILB. Seems unlikely Johnson or Stupar will be able to win a spot, they will probably play for 1 PS spot. Still no idea how OLB will fall with Aldon, Ahmad, Haralson, Lemonier as locks IMO and then Skuta and/or Johnson fighting for the #5 spot. Unlikely we keep 6.
Edit: Sounds like we will try again next year with him. Think I'd rather just move on. So early on in his 1st off season he tears an acl, then a few months ago he tweaks a knee and now he tears another ACL. We must like his potential if we put him on IR and try again next year.

If Darius Fleming clears waivers, as expected, he'll revert back to IR with the 49ers and make split salary of $303,000.
