49ers Injury Report: Curtis Holcomb Remains Sidelined

The San Francisco 49ers had their fifth practice of training camp yesterday and the injury report continues to include Curtis Holcomb. While Michael Crabtree is the more high profile injury absence, but Curtis Holcomb is in the fight for his "roster life" at the cornerback position. Holcomb was a seventh round pick out of Florida A&M in the 2010 NFL Draft. He was considered by some to be a bit of a steal due to some solid upside. Unfortunately he tore his Achilles early in camp and spent the season on injured reserve.

Holcomb was already in a tough roster fight because of the depth of the 49ers cornerback position. The 49ers signed Perrish Cox to compete with Chris Culliver and Tramaine Brock. The 49ers had a strong 1-2-3 last season featuring Carlos Rogers, Tarell Brown and Chris Culliver. The unit is only getting deeper, which pushes Holcomb further to the fringe.

Holcomb has missed a couple days of practice with what sounds like a leg injury. At this point, I would imagine he is a strong practice squad candidate, although even that isn't guaranteed. The 49ers have a deep enough roster this season that even the practice squad could feature some strong candidates.
