Golden Nuggets: Shane Andrus, come on down

The 49ers find themselves down yet another kicker, as Ricky Schmitt, the man who replaced Joe Nedney, injured his groin and won't be able to kick tomorrow.  The new kicker is Shane Andrus, formerly of the Bucs and Colts.  Andrus has attempted and missed one field goal in his career, and is 6/6 in extra point attempts.  This is sort of becoming the kicking version of the 2007 season when Alex Smith went down and the 49ers rolled out Chris Weinke at one point.  Of course, given that tomorrow's game borders on the meaningless, this is not too big a deal.
