49ers safety Adrian Colbert and D-lineman Damontre Moore leave Broncos game due to injuries

San Francisco 49ers safety Adrian Colbert is forced to exit early in his second consecutive game.


A week after being ejected from the San Francisco 49ers' first preseason game, safety Adrian Colbert's first-half hamstring strain will keep him out for the remainder of the Niners' Monday Night Football matchup with the Denver Broncos. 49ers defensive lineman Damontre Moore will also miss the rest of the game after injuring his thumb.


Meanwhile, fellow safety Tarvarius Moore, who is competing against Colbert for the 49ers' starting free safety job while defensive back Jimmie Ward recovers from injury, has continued to play into the second half of the contest. Moore was briefly forced to leave the field after being shaken up in the third quarter, but quickly returned to action.

Moore's strong preseason play, combined with Colbert's failure to stay on the field, has given the defensive back a leg up in the competition for the team's starting role. Moore played safety in college, and after attempting to convert to cornerback last season, has moved back to his natural position in San Francisco's secondary.

The 49ers' sixth-round draft pick, cornerback Tim Harris Jr., also left the game in the second half due to a groin injury, and is questionable to return:

Richard Sherman was one of the most hated opponents in 49ers history. Currently, Richard Sherman is one of the most beloved members of the 49ers roster. So much has changed since the loudmouth, superstar cornerback took a dinner meeting with Kyle Shanahan a little over two years ago. Back then, the 49ers were coming off of a 6-10 season, ending the year with a 5-game winning streak led by newly acquired QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Expectations were high, the 49ers were a media darling and Jimmy Garoppolo was heralded as the next great QB. The addition of Richard Sherman shocked the football world and set the bar even higher for the once great franchise. Two years later, the 49ers are coming off of a heartbreaking Super Bowl loss. Although he faltered in the final moments of Super

NFL cancels Weeks 1 and 4 of preseason, eliminating Broncos, Chargers from 49ers' schedule

The NFL is canceling Weeks 1 and 4 of the preseason, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. The league is reportedly expected to announce the decision on Thursday. "The move was driven by two primary factors," writes Florio. "First, teams who will be playing preseason games on the road won't want to move that many people. Second, given that no teams had on-field practice sessions in the offseason, coaches would rather have the extra time to work with their teams, and that will happen if they don't have to worry about two extra preseason games." For the 49ers, this will mean the elimination of the team's August 15 road game against the Denver
