Santa Clara, CA (Sports Network) - The San Francisco 49ers waived/injured
linebacker Darius Fleming on Tuesday after the 2012 draft pick tore his left
ACL for the second time in 14 months.
Fleming, taken in the fifth round (165th overall) by San Francisco in last
year's draft, sustained the injury in a non-contact drill in Sunday's
practice. The Notre Dame product spent his entire rookie season on the
physically unable to perform list after tearing his ACL during minicamp in May
If Fleming clears waivers, the 49ers will place him on injured reserve.
To fill the available roster spot, San Francisco signed rookie free agent
linebacker Travis Johnson to a three-year contract.
