The 49ers just announced that kicker Joe Nedney underwent a MRI yesterday that revealed a right knee strain and a bone bruise. They said he will most likely sit out this week's game and be reevaluated next week. Matt Maiocco tweeted that a league source indicated the 49ers would likely sign either Shane Andrus, Garrett Lindholm, or Swayze Waters. Personally I'm rooting for Swayze Waters because he has such an awesome name. If we could sign Cal QB Brock Mansion the soap opera/porn star names would be complete.
For those wondering who these guys are, Andrus has been a camp body for the 49ers the last couple of years and I wouldn't be surprised to see him get the nod given his familiarity with the team. Waters can kick and punt and was in Raiders camp this past training camp. He was an emergency fill-in for Jason Hanson last year. Lindholm was an undrafted rookie in Colts camp and was released in late August.
