49ers waive Plummer, Morton and Cooper

Feb 23, 2006 at 2:18 PM--


As expected, the 49ers officially waived wide receiver Johnnie Morton and cornerback Ahmed Plummer on Thursday according to the official 49ers site. The team also waived defensive end Chris Cooper.

Morton, a 12-year veteran, was signed by the team prior to the 2005 season to bring some veteran leadership to the wide receiver position. Despite being completely healthy, Morton was inactive for the final two games of the 2005 season.

Plummer has had an injury plagued career with the team since being drafted in the first round of the 2000 NFL Draft. He missed the final 13 games of the 2005 season after undergoing a minor surgery to remove bone chips. He has played just 9 games in the past two seasons. Plummer was one of two first round picks by the 49ers in 2000. The other player was Julian Peterson, who will become a free agent and will likely be signed by another team. Plummer's departure will save the team $1 million in cap space.

Cooper injured his shoulder during training camp and spent the 2005 season on injured reserve. He was originally a sixth round draft pick by the Raiders in 2001.

Coin flip will take place on Friday or Saturday

A coin flip will be held either Friday or Saturday at the scouting combine in Indianapolis to determine whether the Oakland Raiders or San Francisco 49ers will pick sixth in April's draft. The loser will choose seventh in the first round, with the teams alternating spots in subsequent rounds.

The San Francisco 49ers have placed linebacker Mark Nzeocha on injured reserve, forcing him to miss at least the next three games. Nzeocha is dealing with a quad strain. The 49ers also officially opened the practice window for wide receiver Deebo Samuel. He has been recovering from the Jones fracture in his left foot that was suffered during a player-organized practice in June. "I know he's been chomping at the bit to get back," Shanahan said. "I know he's really made a lot of progress here in these last 14 days. I know he's pumped to practice. I know he's pumped to play." The 49ers will use Wednesday's through

49ers' Kyle Shanahan expects Mohamed Sanu to be suited up and ready to help vs. Jets, if needed

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Mohammed Sanu, barring any complications, should join his new teammates tomorrow and practice with them for the first time since signing a one-year deal earlier this week. Tomorrow's practice will just be a walk-through. Typically, missing each full practice in the days preceding a game would reduce a player's chances of playing — especially a new player. Sanu, however, is familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, having played within it during his time with the Atlanta Falcons. That, combined with the injury concerns at the position, could mean fans get to see Sanu out on the field against the New York

The 49ers will be without injured tight end George Kittle against the New York Jets this afternoon but are hopeful he'll be ready to play in time for next week's game against the New York Giants, according to reports from Adam Schefter of ESPN and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Both reporters weighed in on Kittle's status earlier this morning while also shedding some light on the nature of his injury, which occurred during the 49ers' Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Schefter wrote earlier this morning that Kittle has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL in his left knee "that would sideline most players for a few weeks" but is showing
