49ers Training Camp: Ted Ginn, Cam Johnson Injury Updates

49ers rookies and selected veterans reported to training camp this weekend and have begun the process of getting cleared to practice. As previously expected, Joe Looney and Darius Fleming have been formally sidelined for the start of practices. Fleming was placed on the Physically Unable To Perform List, due to his ACL tear after the 49ers drafted him. Looney was placed on the Non-Football Injury List because he suffered the injury in January before joining the 49ers (even though it was related to football).

The 49ers also placed running back Jewel Hampton on the Non-Football Injury List. He enters camp as a longshot to earn a roster spot given the number of quality players ahead of him, so this would seem to be a setback in his bid for a 53-man roster spot. Depending on the severity of the injury, this could make it easier to get him on the practice squad if the 49ers like his potential.

Two apparently healthy players would appear to be Ted Ginn Jr. and Cam Johnson. Ginn reportedly passed his physical after spending the summer rehabbing the knee that cost him the NFC Championship Game. He declared himself to be in A+ right now. The 49ers know what he can do as a return man, but this still is a big help getting him healthy and ready.

There is no official word on Cam Johnson, who had what was deemed a minor knee procedure this offseason. He has not yet been placed on any injured list, so hopefully that means all is well for him. He dealt with injuries and inconsistency in college, but has some solid upside, particularly for a seventh round pick.
